We are all feeling the brunt of summer. But our pets suffer the heat even more and these mute creatures cannot even tell. So how do you take care of them?

We would usually rescue our cat from the outside and take him in under the air-con. He would sleep inside all day:)
We have a little blanket our cat loves, and we position a char near the air condition which he sleeps on through the day. Happy Cat - Happy House! ;)
We don't have an air conditioner at home so with the 40+ temps that Melbourne experienced last week, I wet a towel and wiped down our cat every couple of hours to keep him cool. He also doesn't drink a lot of water, so using a syringe I squirt a little water at a time into his mouth so that he didn't dehydrate. We were very relieved when it cooled down again!
we bring our cat inside wear it is nice and cool.

We tend to give our dog out bit of a trim when the weather starts getting warm. Other than that we just make sure his water bowls are always filled up and sometimes he comes in the pool with us.
I actually leave the air conditioner on for them if it gets above about 32 degrees. I have an old dog and because he is used to being inside with the air conditioner on, I feel sorry for him if I go out and don't turn it on!
My younger dog is far more resilient and I would not leave it on if I only had him.

Several bowls of water, in case a bowl is tipped over.
Pets generally have their own cooling systems, however if I know there is going to be an awful hot day then I put the air con on in the morning before leaving, and I leave work as soon as I can to get home to check on my pets.

All my pets are indoor pets. I don't believe in keeping pets outside.
