Cats need to be kept warm and cared for properly safe in the winter. This will keep your cat safe and disease-free.
Limited outside when the temperature is low
Being a thin-haired animal, protection in the winter will help it withstand the cold weather outside. Therefore, when the temperature drops too low, you should not take your pet out into the street. This will keep it safe in the winter and avoid catching a cold.
In case you have to go outside or you want your cat to exercise safely in the winter, you should buy warmer clothes. That way the cat will be safe in the winter.
If you let your cat outside, it is possible that these conditions will happen to your cat such as:
- Tired, shaking, shivering.
- Go into a coma.
In this situation, you need to take them to the veterinarian quickly. Before you go to the vet, you need to slowly re-warm your pet by wrapping him in a warm blanket, placing a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel around his belly to keep his body warm. Give them warm (not hot) water to help warm them up from the inside out. So be careful in winter so that cats are not in danger.
