As temperatures creep up make sure you’re keeping your kitty cool under their fur coat! We share our top tips for keeping cats from overheating in summer.
Throw a cool tea towel over your cat to keep them cool in a heatwave
1. Put a tea towel in the freezer for 15 minutes, the drape over your cat.
The cool fabric is so soothing for a hot cat – and this method has the added bonus of making them look like a tiny horse about to enter a joust with a knight on their back! Don’t forget to remove once the tea towel has heated up again, otherwise you are just adding extra insulation to your cat on top of their coat.
2. Put ice cubes your cat's water bowl to keep them cool
It turns out cats love licking ice cubes, who knew? This is the perfect way to cool down your cats drinking water and keep them cool when temperatures are hot.
Definitely a smile from Walter!
