Seasonal Recommendations: Keeping the cool in the summer for cats
Have you ever noticed how much your kitten loves the heat? How does he always find the sunniest, hottest corners to cut, right? Follow these simple tips to keep him safe during the long and hot summer season:
Cats are not famous for being ‘sensitive’ to the sun. Your kitten will probably go directly to the sunniest corner in your garden or balcony on summer days. That’s why it’s important to protect it from sunstroke. You can try to encourage him to go into the shade during the hottest hours of the day.
Balconies, winter gardens can be a real danger to your kitten. They can enter here to enjoy the heat, and when the door closes behind them, they can remain closed. Also, if you have a balcony, make sure that your kitten is sheltered so that it does not fall off the balcony.
Not only people are affected by sunburn. If your kitten’s hair is white and its nose or ears are light colored, it may need sunscreen. You can get some advice from your veterinarian about this.
Not everyone loves fireworks
You might think that fireworks are great… However, your kitten is likely to hate them. We have several suggestions to make the celebration times near the house safe and bearable for him:
Even if you allow your kitten to go out under normal conditions, a night of firework shows is definitely a night that should stay home and safe.
The sound of fireworks can be terrifying for your kitten. Keep it as far as possible. It may be a good idea to leave the radio or television on to distract you.
You can close the curtains. Your kitten may not want to see fireworks!
Attention to lilies
Lilies can be deadly for cats. All parts of this plant are poisonous to them. In fact, it is not mandatory for a cat to eat anything in order to be adversely affected by lilies. Even if a lily creeps gently as it passes and then licks pollen from its feathers, this can even be dangerous. Blindness, vomiting, kidney failure, paralysis may occur in your kitten and may even have worse consequences. If you suspect that your kitten is affected, you should take it to your veterinarian immediately.
For this reason, you should try to avoid having lilies in your home as a precaution. However, if you cannot avoid, be sure to place the flowers out of the reach of your kitten. Ensure that any pollen or spilled leaves are safely removed, and after touching the flower, wash your hands thoroughly before touching your kitten.
