Winter is soon approaching, and even if you have an indoor cat, there are still a few items to remember before the temperature drops.
First off, making sure that all your entrances and exits, including kitty doors, are safe and secure is the best way to ensure your cat’s safety in the winter. You do not want your cat to be able to slip out of the house when temperatures are dangerously low, especially when they stray far from home and for long periods of time. If you do choose to allow them to go outside in the winter, make sure that you keep a close eye on them, as well as have an accessible entrance for them to get back into your home.
Second, create a cozy and warm space for them to snuggle up inside your home. While your home may be heated, it is great to give your cat their own space where they can get cozy and relax. Just like you may enjoy curling up on the couch under a big comfy blanket, your cat could enjoy a space of their own to do the same.
Lastly, make sure that you stock up on extra cat food during the winter months. In the case of bad weather or icy roads, you may not be able to reach the store immediately when you run low on food. It is best to tuck away extra food that can be used if ever needed.
Indoor cats have the luxury of having a warm home to live and sleep in, but there are still a few important things to remember in order to be best prepared for the winter months.
