Winter Tips~~Part III

14a/365 I Didn't Do It
Here are a few more winter weather tips for you and your furry family members.

Outdoor cats can easily freeze or become lost, injured or killed.  Cats will also sleep under hoods of cars next to the warm motor.  This often leads to severe injury or death from the fan blades or belt when the motor is started.

**If you live near a body of water (lake, pond, etc.), REMEMBER that thin ice is just as hazardous for pets as for people.

**NEVER leave your pet alone in a vehicle or unattended outdoors during cold weather.

**Provide indoor pets with a warm bed and plenty of blankets AWAY from drafts and insulated from the cold floor.

Stay tuned next weekend for our final segment of Ten Winter Weather Tips for Pets!
