You hot? I’m hot too

You will get Heatstroke, why wouldn’t I?

While there are many benefits to your cat sunbathing, they too can get sunburns and heat stroke from lying too long under the sun

Have you noticed that your pet reacts weirdly when you touch them after they have been sunbathing for a while? Or spot any red spots that are painful to touch?  You can assume that they are sunburnt and may need your help. 

Here are some common symptoms of Heatstroke in pets: 

  • Quick breathing
  • Drooling
  • Fast pulse
  • Falling over
  • Vomiting
  • Panting
  • High body temperature

If you notice any of these symptoms in your pet, please take fast action since heat strokes can be fatal. First, keep your cat in a cool area like the bathroom and give them water, see if the symptoms reduce. If your pet is vomiting or the symptoms ain’t reducing, take them to the vet immediately for medical assistance.
