With extremely high temperatures set to hit us over the next few days, we need to be extra thoughtful about helping our feline friends stay cool. Visit the Cats Protection website for lots of great tips on keeping cats cool, and take their quick quiz to see if you are clued up on cats and summer health.
Getting too hot can be dangerous for cats. Make sure they have access to shade, fresh cool water and can move freely to cooler areas in the house or garden. If you suspect your cat is suffering from heatstroke (signs include drooling, panting, collapse or appearing agitated) please contact a vet immediately as this can be life-threatening and requires urgent action.
