How do I keep my kitty cool?

We worry a lot about our dogs during the summer heat, but what about kitty?  Most of us have air conditioning in our homes, so keeping kitty cool is a mute point for those homes, but there are still many homes without and cats who live outdoors.  Here a few tips.

  1. Put ice cubes in their water bowl.  This will help the water stay fresh and cool longer.
  2. Freeze a partial bottle of water overnight and wrap a towel around it and put in kitty’s bed.
  3. A simple box fan can provide extra comfort and air flow if your kitty is in a garage.
  4. Pet your cat with a cool wet washcloth.  This can enhance natural cooling.
