10 Winter Warmers for your Cats in 2019

If you are starting to feel cold and uncomfortable as the weather gets cooler, then chances are your cat is likely feeling the same way! Luckily, there are a number of simple ways you can keep kitty safe and warm this winter.

If your cat is usually outdoors, please ensure they have access to a safe and warm outdoor shelter, preferably off the ground or you could install a pet door to ensure so they can come in at any time.

If you have a senior cat or one suffering from arthritis, the cold weather can make their joints stiff and uncomfortable. Jumping up to their favourite nook will now be more difficult so you could provide a step up using another piece of furniture or buy / make a pet ramp.

If your kitty normally sleeps on the floor, this is the time to move your cat’s bedding higher up away from cold hard surfaces to avoid drafts and maybe throw in an extra blanket !

Another great way to help keep kitty warm is by using an enclosed oil-filled radiator heater in your cat’s den. During last week’s cold snap, we did this for our kitten Arya and every time we checked up on her, she was lying on the warm carpet right next to it!

Probably one of the biggest dangers for cats in colder months is their eagerness to seek heat sources in weird and wonderful places, which may include your closet or your car. Cats love going to sleep on top of the engine or the tyre of a parked car so always check where kitty is before starting up your car!

Few parts of Australia see freezing temperatures during winter but if you’re using anti-freeze in your area, watch out because its sweet taste is particularly attractive to cats and extremely dangerous as it causes kidney failure.

To inspire you to create a cosy nook for your kitties this season, we went on the hunt for the latest cat winter accessories.
