Cats and the cold: how to protect them in winter

Winter brings its fair share of challenges for felines, including the risk of hypothermia and frostbite for those who venture outdoors or live in cold environments.

Protection strategies:

  • Heated shelter: It is essential to provide a warm and secure indoor space. Heating pads or cozy beds can provide additional comfort.
  • Nutrition: Slightly increasing calorie intake can help offset the energy spent warming up.
  • Limited access to the outdoors: Reduce outings during particularly cold days to avoid the risk of hypothermia.
