Princess got far too hot a couple of days ago and started panting like a dog 😿I was really worried she was over heating so I put cold water on my hands and brushed it through her fur- she loved it and started purring. I figured she might lick off the moisture which would keep her hydrated, which she did. I also mixed water with some tuna so she got some extra liquid that way.
I lay down on the tiled floor because she always lays down nearby wherever I am and the tiles cooled her down as well. That worked well 👍
I kept on putting cool water on her so her temperature stayed down and brushing her so any excess fur could come out easily- she really loves being brushed. I already groom her every day but right now she is moulting so much it’s crazy, she needs extra help clearing the fur. I don’t want her to swallow too much of it and get sick.
She was sick twice the next day (although she doesn’t seem to have too much fur in her tummy 😊) so I took her to her vet, who checked her out and said I was doing all the right things so just to continue. She wasn’t dehydrated and has been fine since, so fingers crossed it won’t hit 32 again this summer!
