Last time, I gave you 8 awesome ways to help your cat stay chill in the summer heat. That post was all about staying hydrated. This one’s more about getting some cool air circulating. (Are you sensing an elemental theme here?)
When I first started researching subscription boxes for cats, it was actually for my American friend. Since I’m British, it seemed weird to write a blog post that wasn’t aimed at other Brits — but it also seemed like a waste of a good list to not write a counterpart to my UK Subscription Boxes.
You might have seen me mention this before, but KitKat was supposed to be a British shorthair. I’ve never minded that she turned out to be the fluffiest cat that ever fluffed (though my carpet has suffered somewhat because she likes to scrape off dead fur by rolling all over it), but it did add some concerns to my already worry-warty ways.
Chiefly: how the heck do you keep a cat with that much fur cool in the summer?
KitKat has had cystitis twice since January. Apparently, water infections can be lethal to cats, so I spent some time researching ways to minimise the risk.
Beyond preventing her from eating human food (I know, I’m a terrible cat mom) and switching her to a wet-food-only diet to reduce the minerals and whatnot in her system, the best answer I could find was to get her a drinking fountain.
