Trim your cat's feet
Cats sweat through their meat pads and noses, and when it's hot, they open their mouths and stick out their tongues to dissipate heat, just like dogs! Cats love to lick their back hair, as the wet hair evaporates and dries in the air, taking away some of the heat, so it is advisable to shave your cat's feet if you want to cool them off!
Prepare sufficient water
Cats are born with well-developed motor cells and are very active with a high body temperature, so it is easy to become dehydrated in the summer heat.
Maintain air circulation
What cats need is a smoothly ventilated room, or a breeze from an electric fan, as long as the air is circulating cats will not be uncomfortable because of the heat.
Give cats more wet food
Cats, like humans, don't have as good an appetite as in other seasons once summer comes. This time you will find that cats eat very little dry food, so this time should be appropriate to give cats some wet food, canned food, and cat food are good choices, not only can help cats to improve their appetite but also help them to replenish some water!
Prepare some cooling "magic tools"
The cat's cooler, the cat pot, the ice pad, and other summer "magic tools" do not need to be introduced, you can buy them directly through the Internet, but also be prepared for the cat does not like the psychological preparation, after all, the cat's mind, the shovel is impervious to guessing!

Three, so afraid of the heat of the kitties, how to let the cat cool down?
As the weather gets hotter and hotter every day, people would rather take one step than go out and blow the air conditioner at home in the face of the outdoor heat of more than 30 degrees. And those who have pets at home will also find their pet cats at home have recently become less appetizing and less active. They are not sick but caused by the hot weather. So what exactly can you do to cool your cat down? There are these three ways: trim the foot hair, keep the air circulating in the room, and drink more water.
The first trimming of foot hair is very useful, but we need to note that we must not shave the whole body of the cat because cats are different from us humans, their sweat glands are distributed in the feet, and if we blindly shave their whole body, it will not only make the cat feel uneasy, but even cause various skin diseases, and may increase the risk of sunburn. So what we can do is just shave the hair on the kitty's feet, so that the kitty can better sweat and dissipate heat.
Be sure to maintain a well-ventilated environment indoors. The ancestors of cats were living in the desert for a long time, so cats, their heat resistance is relatively good. But cats can also easily cause heatstroke in a closed environment. So when we are at home, we can choose to turn on the air conditioner to lower the room temperature, but do not set the air conditioner temperature too low. When only the kitty is at home, be sure to open the windows and open the doors to keep the air circulating throughout the room.
Another way is to let the cat drink as much water as possible. Due to the hot temperature, it is easy to cause the cat's body to lose too much water. In this case, it is necessary to replenish a large amount of water in time, once the cat can not replenish water in time, it is very easy to have heatstroke. Due to the physiological structure of cats, they may not like to drink water, we can choose to put some water bowls in all corners of the house.
This gives the cat more choice, and as soon as the cat sees the water, it will take a few sips. Of course, some cats prefer to drink flowing water, pooper scoopers can also choose to buy a pet water fountain according to their conditions, which can create a liquid water source for cats, but also increase the number of water cats drink. However, one thing to note is that please be cautious about providing ice water to cats, as many cats have weak stomachs. In hot weather, giving cats too cold water may lead to intestinal discomfort and diarrhea.
You should not be too nervous and anxious, because kittens are also very smart and will choose to stay in the shade when they are hot, we just need to try to do the above points I mentioned above to be able to reduce the probability of heat stroke problems in cats. If you find that your cat suddenly has difficulty breathing, drooling, depression, vomiting, and other symptoms, we must consider whether the cat has developed symptoms of heat stroke.
At this point, we must cool the cat as soon as possible, and promptly take the cat to the veterinary hospital, must not delay, knowing that is considered human heatstroke for too long, may also cause life-threatening. I hope that the cats under the sky can be healthy and happy through every hot summer day.
