How can cats stay outside in the winter?
When it's cold and wet, we humans retreat indoors. We’ll keep ourselves warm with blankets, we light up the fireplace, or the notch the heating up a bit. Curtains closed from the outside world.
Yet many cats stubbornly stay out in even the worst of conditions!
Do cats really enjoy being exposed to wind, rain and even snow? No! They're just like us: cats also want to feel warm and safe.
So next time you pass thought the garden, take a moment to consider your cat, and arrange a place for them to stay that is:
- Protected from the wind
- Protected from rain
- Elevated, to alleviate the risk of frostbite and damp conditions
- Situated to provide an unrestricted view over the garden.
- A rabbit hutch with the door always open would be 'purrfect'. Add comfy cat bed and any cat will be happy all winter long!
