Each spring during “kitten season”, thousands of newborn kittens join the millions of cats already in shelters across the country.  That means your local shelter has tons of cute, cuddly newborns, in addition to all the mellow, older cats and everything in between.  And the shelter staff is ready to help you adopt your very first cat — or to bring home a friend for another beloved cat!

If you’ve been thinking about adding a cat to your family, now is the PURRFECT time =)

Of course we let our pets know everyday just how special they are to us, but this week is about going the extra mile and really showing our furry family members how much we love and cherish them.

Here are some ways we can celebrate Pet Appreciation Week with our pets:

  • Bake a special homemade treat for them.
  • Take them on a special outing–visit a new park or beach, or even just switch up your walking route.
  • More Toys!
  • Freshen your pet up with a bath or grooming.  (Remember Debbie’s Pet Boutique offers a Self-Wash area)
  • Lots of extra hugs and kisses–because they deserve it!!

How will you be showing you pet appreciation this week?

As the weather gets warmer, human and pets alike tend to get more active.  For humans that means we do a lot of running around, driving from store to store to get our errands done.

Though it can be tempting to take our dogs with us for the ride, all of the stops at stores will leave the dog sitting in the car waiting for you.  And that wait can be more harmful than you think.

70 degrees & above – leave your dog at home!

When the temperature outside reaches 70 degrees, the temp inside your car raises to about 100 degrees.  Even with the windows “cracked”, your car turns into an oven!

As the temps rise throughout the summer, the danger grows:

  • 75 degrees outside = 118 degrees in your car
  • 77degrees outside = 123 degrees in your car
  • 81 degrees outside = 138 degrees in your car
  • 90 degrees outside = 143 degrees in your car
  • 94 degrees outside = 145 degrees in your car

So if it’s above 70 degrees, leave your dog at home =)
