Thinking Of Pets On This Frigid Monday

When temperatures drop this significantly, I can't help but think of pets. Here are some great tips (via Wisconsin Humane Society) from the Dane County Humane society's Facebook page:

--Cats need to stay indoors; no exceptions.
--Dogs should ONLY be let outdoors long enough to relieve themselves. If they don't go after a couple minutes, take them back inside, warm up their paws with your hands or a towel, then try again.
--Doggie coats and booties aren't just a fashion statement, they can be hugely important in keeping your animal warm; fur can only insulate so much and paw pads (along with ears and tails) are easily susceptible to frostbite.
--If you feel guilty about your pet missing out on their usual exercise regimen, there are plenty of ways for them to stay active indoors. Laser pointers, treat-dispensing toys, or tricks-for-treats are great ways to keep your animal busy (and warm) on bitter cold days.

Keep your pets safe this season!
