Hey there, fellow cat lovers! If you’re a proud owner of Ragdoll cats like me, living in the sunny paradise of Malta, you know just how paw-some and lovable these furry companions can be.

But as the temperatures rise and the humidity kicks in, it’s important to take extra care of our Ragdolls, Pancakes and Mango, to keep them cool and comfortable. In this meow-tastic blog, I’ll share some tips and tricks to ensure our whiskered friends stay chill even in the hottest of days.

Pawsitively Cool: Keeping Your Ragdolls Happy in Heat and Humidity

Hydration Station for Cool Cats

When the Maltese sun is blazing, we need to keep Pancakes and Mango well-hydrated, no hissy fits allowed!

Make sure to have multiple water bowls available throughout the house, strategically placed in shady spots where they can quench their kitty thirst. Don’t forget to add some ice cubes for an extra refreshing touch!

Cool Retreats for Chill Kitties

It’s time to create some cool kitty hideaways, a true feline paradise! Set up cosy nooks with soft blankets or mats in shady areas of your home, away from those scorching sun rays.

Make it a purr-sonal kitty cabana, complete with fluffy pillows and maybe even a mini fan to keep the air flowing. Let them nap away like the cool cats they are!

Grooming Galore

Ah, the joy of pampering our Ragdolls! Regular grooming sessions are not only a chance for bonding but also essential to keep their fabulous fur in tip-top shape.

Get your paws on a quality grooming brush and gently remove any loose hair to avoid uncomfortable mats. It’s like their very own spa day!

Take It Easy, Meow-stay Calm

We all know Ragdolls can have bursts of energy, but let’s not turn up the heat too much! Save the playful antics for the cooler hours, like early mornings or evenings.

Engage in some gentle cat yoga or a leisurely game of chase-the-string. It’s all about keeping them entertained and happy without turning them into overheated furballs!

Heat Watch

Signs of Overheating: Being the responsible cat parents we are, we need to keep a sharp eye out for any signs of overheating.

Look for excessive panting, lethargy, or your Ragdolls seeking out cool surfaces like tiles to lie on. If you notice any of these signs, it’s time for quick action! Offer them a cool towel to lounge on or a delicious frozen treat to help them beat the heat.

Indoor Oasis

Let’s transform our homes into a cool kitty oasis! Keep an eye on the temperature and humidity levels using a fancy thermostat or hygrometer.

Make sure the air flows freely with fans or air conditioning. Maybe even set up a little kitty pool with some cool water for them to dip their paws in (if they’re into that kind of thing)!
