3 tips to help your cat spend a good summer

Drink

cool waterProvide your cat some cool water throughout the day. The ideal is a water fountain, but several bowls of water at various places in the house (and in the garden) suit perfectly. The water should be renewed several times during the day. You can add an ice cube in the bowl (only one !) to keep the water cool longer.

Stay cool

For your own comfort and that of your cat, maintain the inside of your house as fresh as possible : lower the blinds or close the shutters, equip yourselves with a ventilator if necessary, or switch on the air conditioning if you are lucky enough to have of one (not too cold!). Be sure that your cat has easily access to a cool place during day. You can also pet your cat with a wet dish mop, and let him play with water as in the video below :

Observe

Your cat sticks out his tongue ? He’s panting ? He is apathetic having spent a long moment in the sun ? He’s maybe a victim of a heat stroke : we explain you here the first gestures to have. Don’t hesitate to consult your veterinarian !

    We are lucky that is does not get really hot here.
    Mum always makes sure we have lots of water and cool spots indoors.

    Oh, that water pan looks fun and those swimmy fish do too! Our Mom sometimes wipes down one of our visiting outdoor cats when it’s really hot outside, and he seems to really like it. Thank you for those great tips!

    We have several bowls of fresh water inside, a small pond outside, and good small canned meals each day 6 times. What could be better? Oh right, fresh live mousies too… We get those.
