Whether your cat is an outdoor cat or just likes to roll around in the backyard from time to time, there are some things to be mindful of this warm weather season.
The first is heat! Make sure there is a shady area for your cat to rest in while outside. Cats are even more sensitive to heat exhaustion and sunburn than we are, check out the symptoms of heat exhaustion in your cat here.
