With spring here and summer just around the corner, it’s going to start warming up outside quickly. Whether your cat goes outside regularly or stays in the house most of the day, there are special considerations to take when caring for pets in hot weather. Keeping them safe and comfortable are the top priority.
#1 – Get Grooming
During winter, many cat owners will let the long coats of their cats grow out to keep them warm and comfortable. Some owners prefer to shave their cats during summer, but that isn’t always the best option. Even long, thick coats are designed to keep your cat cool during hot weather. Regular brushing will certainly help make them more comfortable, as it removes all of the dead hair they are trying to shed. Your cat’s coat will get much thinner during the hotter months, so helping remove that excess hair will just make them comfortable faster.
