Cat Care During Summer

Summer care of your cat

Having a pet at home is having a hell of a lot of responsibility on your shoulders. Usually having a child is considered the same but humans have the power to speak and if not that, then they can express their feelings in any other way using facial expressions too. Whereas living beings like the cat or any other animal cannot keep their calm or express their body issues so they try to express it with their nature and behavior. The same happens during summers where the body of the cat gets Dehydrated and parents get uneasy with what they should do next to prevent any miss happening. To understand the behavior of the cat and the elements one can perform summer are listed below

 
Summer care of your cat
 

Cats do love to stretch out and bask in the sun. However, she may enjoy it so much that she stays out long enough to risk getting a sunburn – especially if she has a light-coloured coat, or a pink nose or pink skin.
When summertime is around, remember to take extra care.
Help your cat by setting up areas of shade in her favourite sunbathing spots. She will love cardboard boxes. Try turning one on its side and create a shelter for her to sleep in.
There’s a chance that she may ignore the shade you create and simply move back to a sunny spot. Try keeping her indoors during the middle of the day, when the sunshine is at its peak.
Choose a non-toxic variety of sunscreen to protect her skin and ears – she may not enjoy it at first and try to wipe it off, but she’ll get used to it.

Animals usually have light-weighted and light-colored furs and to protect them you can use some special cat customized Sun cream which will protect the feline from sunburnt. As a responsible cat parent, consider the Veterinarian before wielding any product on your cat and if the VET agrees to avail any sun cream on the feline you can use a sun cream consisting of Titanium Dioxide-based. Even if the VET does not allow you to use sun cream on your Cat you should go for any other thing they consult you otherwise the fur of the cat would be affected in hot seasons.
