Cat Cooling Mats

Cats are pretty resilient to weather, but extreme heat and cold can knock any animal for a loop. Sadly, the weather is becoming more extreme each year and that puts our pets at risk for injury and death. Heat is particularly devastating to animals. Despite hailing from the desert, cats are very susceptible to heatstroke and exhaustion.

Keeping Cats Cool in Summer

Encourage water consumption

Chances are excellent that your cat is not drinking enough water. To ensure sure your cat drinks enough, consider adding a pet fountain. Most cats prefer running water. Here are two of favorite fountains.

There are many things you can do to keep pets cool in summer – even outdoor cats. But, let’s begin with some ideas for our indoor cats.

Self-Cooling Pads

Consider purchasing one of our favorite types of cooling mats. They are natural, they require no refrigeration, they are affordable and they are very resilient. Cats love them because it did a very gentle cooling rather that doesn’t keep your cats cool. This cooling pad is the only one that doesn’t need water or power to generate long-term coolness. The pad is weight-activated, so as your cat lies down, it automatically begins to cool. When it warms up, your cat will remove herself and the pad automatically recharges.

Provide Cool Places

Cats love dark, cool places. The indoor cats love the cool bathtub and if it’s in a darkened bathroom, all the better. Outdoor cats need to have some access to cooler places. Be sure you provide your feral cats plenty of access to cool, shaded areas in your yard or near your feeding station.

Keeping Outdoor Cats Cool In Summer

Providing safe places for feral cats is key for surviving summers. Some cats are less feral than others and that means we can be a little more fashionable in keeping them cool. It takes only a few hours to freeze a jug of water, but it can help keeps outdoor cats cool in summer. Simply wrap in the frozen jug in an old t-shirt and place in an area where the cat likes to relax. They will wrap themselves around the jug and stay cool most of the day.

Dig a Trench

For outdoor, feral cats, try this trick if you have a very small colony or just want to help out a stray cat who visits your yard:

Dig a small trench
Place large rocks inside
Punch holes in the frozen gallon of water
Place it on top of rocks that lie in a hole you have dug
Cover with an old towel or shirt
As the ice begins melting, the rocks will absorb the cool water and will create a cooling effect for cats.

Note that ferals will take awhile to get used to this idea and may not use it right away. Just keep trying. They take time. If they really hate the frozen water jug, try just watering rocks down – the effect will be very similar.

If you have a Catio for your pet, be sure to provide them access to a climate controlled room during the day. This is especially important in areas where heat is extreme.

Staying Cool on the Road

If you have to take your cat to the vet, remember that heightened anxiety severity increases body temperature. Stress increases the core temperature of a cat and that can increase the likelihood of heat stroke. If your cat doesn’t like to travel, you’ll need to take extra precautions when you’re heading to the veterinarian.

Learn to recognize signs of Heat Stroke in Pets Panting Anxiety, possibly demonstrated by pacing Increased heartbeat Respiratory distress or hyperventilation Dark red gums Lethargy Increased body temperature: Your cat’s internal temperature should be between 100.5° and 101.5° F. A temperature of 103° or more is a definite warning sign.
