Fall is the purrrrrfect season to start spending more time outdoors, throwing the football in the backyard, and gathering around the campfire. With the changing of seasons, it is important to keep in mind the safety of your feline friend!
Here are 5 fall feline tips:
1. Cooler Weather
Cats that spend the majority of their time indoors don’t develop as much of a winter coat as those who are primarily outdoor cats. Once the weather starts dropping, it’s important to keep your furry friend indoors to protect them from getting too chilly.
2. Seasonal Allergies
During the fall and winter months, mold and different funguses are in bloom due to the changing of leaves. The blooming fall foliage can cause kitties to develop allergies with symptoms that include - excessive sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes. If you start to see your furry friend developing any of the following it is advisable to take them to the vet to be treated for allergies!
3. Holiday Decor
Most people start to unpack their holiday decor during the fall and winter months. Cats love new toys, especially if there are string lights, tinsel, or anything that will make your kitty curious. Make sure to keep all decor out of reach from your cat, so they don’t wind up in danger!
