As the summer approaches and temperatures climb to break record highs, watch over your cat. Any heat, especially extreme heat, could put you cat at risk of heat stroke.

While cats can cool themselves like dogs by panting, cats shouldn’t pant longer than 30 seconds because any longer than that could indicate heat exhaustion. So give your cat plenty of water and keep it cool so you don’t have to worry about heat strokes.
