if you have an outdoor cat and you live in a cold climate, make sure your cat can survive the frigid weather. Even if your cat stays indoors, it’s important to keep your cat warm. Fortunately, the Humane Society offers some tips for both indoor and outdoor cats to stay safe in the winter months.
Indoor cats need a place to get away from drafts. Outdoor cats need a shelter so they can get out of the cold. If you feed your cat outside, make sure the cat has access to food and water. Water dishes can freeze over, which can keep a cat from drinking it. In those cases, cats may look for an alternate source of water, which could be a puddle contaminated with chemicals.
Just as winter requires that you bundle up to stay warm, think of your cat too. Keep your cat warm with plenty of food and water, and both you and your cat should get through the cold winter months just fine.
