Summer Safety Tips Infographic from #Pet360

We are NOT big fans of summer here at our house. You would think that in northern Vermont we would be free from yucky heat and humidity, but that is not the case at all. Tara had very thick fur and suffered terribly in the summer. I would brush enough fur out of her on a regular basis to make another cat but she would still lie around the house prostrate from the heat. When I adopted Truffles I thought she wouldn't mind the heat because her fur is very short and thin, but she much prefers cozying up in her blankies during the fall and winter too.

Our favorite way to stay cool is to stay inside in front of the fans and air conditioning. The following photos are a couple of my favorites of Tara. I kept a small desk fan near her at all times, and one day I looked over to see her back legs straddling the fan, her little hips moving as it turned back and forth. How I wish I had videotaped it because it was absolutely priceless!!!



She was quite the little exhibitionist, wasn't she?

The importance of staying safe and keeping cool in the summer cannot be stressed enough, and we're happy to share this Summer Safety Tips infographic detailing some of the top recommendations for keeping your furry friends out of harm’s way, compiled by Pet360‘s Chief Pet Parenting Expert, Rose Hamilton, and SheKnows.

Tara is adorbs! I’m glad we have ac. I know TW loves me cos she keeps the ac lower than they’d like it cos of my fur coat. The cats that came before me weren’t so lucky. they didn’t have ac and would stretch out in the tub or under the furniture to keep cool.

I'm trying to visit your newer post but I'm having a hard time, the first time it took me away saying your website was a phsishing website, now I'm getting a third party 'upgrade' request. I think you've got something going on you don't want..
