7 Ways to Keep Your Cat Cool This Summer

Any cat owner will tell you that their cat is cool but when the temperature starts to rise how do you keep your cat REALLY cool?  

According to my cat, Buster, there are 7 ways to keep your cat cool this summer: 

                             1. Get plenty of sleep

2. Camp out and get comfy in a shady spot

                    3. Lie on your tile floor 

                               4. Stay close to your breezy fan


5. Drink plenty of water

6. Keep your paws cool with a few rounds of ping-pong aerobics

7. And above all, keep your chin up! The dog days of summer will be over soon!   
Now that Buster has shared these cooling tips, he'd like to know how you keep your cats (and dogs too) cool in the summer heat?


  1. I not a kitteh Kat but those are great tips and most appreciative in you sharing. I just hopes nobuddy decides to takes da cooler to da lake...hehehe.

  2. I love the picture actually in the cooler...I think that would definitely help cool you down.

  3. Great tips for a kitteh or a pup! Thanks for sharing thems with us!

    Woofs and Licks,

  4. We hope Buster and Henry are beating the heat on this hot summer day! Love the kitty in the Cooler Picture best of all.

  5. That is some good advices! I like to stretch out on the tiles to stay cool.

  6. I'm not a cat, but those look like good ideas to me!


  7. Great suggestions Buster. We will pass them on to our kitteh sisters & brother.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  8. Olive would say you should eat ice. I give her a couple cubes a day and she loves it!

  9. We cheat! We live in Colorado, high today 68. :-D

  10. Wonderful suggestions Buster!! We love the pictures of you and especially the one of you in the cooler!! We are trying to stay inside in the AC and mom makes me go out to do my business and makes me come back inside. It's 100 degrees plus! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  11. We wouldn't mind playing ping pong to cool off

  12. Hey, sounds a lot like what I am doing all summer.

  13. thanks for the pro tips, buster! me 'n asa are big fans of a breezy fan, too! see what i did there? teeheehee.

  14. Love the ping pong ball idea. I freeze vanilla yogurt in little paper cups and give them to my pups out on the patio. It takes them a while to lick all the coolness out.

    By the way, I am a former NH school librarian, now retired to New Mexico. I'll tell you, I'll take dogs and cats over 8th graders any time! (Obviously, it was time for me to move on...).

  15. We crank down the a.c.!


  16. Cute post, Buster!...We LOVE our a/c, but Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat get ice water, lie in the shade and we have fans in the garage...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki
