Cat and Heatwave, How to cool your cat in summer?

For all animals, whether wild or domestic, summer is a difficult time to endure. In certain regions of France, temperatures exceed 40°C, with extreme heat waves, are our cats sensitive to this?

Like us humans, when the temperature is too high, our little companions have difficulty regulating their body temperature. Although they naturally tend to seek cool, ventilated corners, it is sometimes necessary to help them cool down to avoid heatstroke . Otherwise, our dear cats can also suffer from intense heat, with symptoms such as loss of appetite, lethargy, stress...

Here are tips to help your cat regain energy and rehydrate.

Keep the interior cool

- Use an air conditioner or fan to maintain an adequate temperature indoors.

- Place cooling mats or mats in your cat's favorite places.

Provide enough water

- You can add a few ice cubes in the water to keep it cool.

Avoid excessive activity

    - Limit your cat's activity during periods of high heat (such as midday and afternoon).

    - Provide a shaded, well-ventilated resting area.

    Use damp towels

      - You can use a damp towel to gently wipe your cat's hair, especially its paws and belly, to help it cool down.

          Cooling mats

          - You can buy cooling mats specially designed for pets, so that your cat can rest and cool down on them.
