#1 Never under any circumstances leave your cat alone in a hot car. Cars can quickly heat up and your cat can suffer from heat stroke. Heat stroke can be fatal. Signs to watch for include heavy, loud breathing, a staggering gait, and a bright red tongue or gum tissue.
#2 If heat stroke is suspected, bring your cat to a cool place, put cold compresses on its belly, or wet it down. Do not waste time as this is a medical emergency, take your cat to your veterinarian as quickly as possible.
#3 Use a hot water bottle filled with ice for your cat to lay on. You can also have a mini fan nearby as well.
#4 Make sure window screens are secure. Cats do not necessarily land on their feet and severe injuries can occur.

Urban Resource Institute (URI) is launching New York City’s first-ever co-sheltering program to allow domestic violence survivors and their pets to reside together in a shelter. The project, called PALS—People and Animals Living Safely—will run as a 6-month pilot which began on June 1.
The URI is partnering with the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals because of its expertise in ensuring pet safety in crisis situations.
Currently, as many as 40% of domestic violence victims delay leaving abusive situations out of concern for their pets’ safety, yet no domestic violence shelters in New York City—and only few nationwide—allow pets in residence.
URI PALS is addressing this need by equipping its largest emergency domestic violence shelter to house families and small animals together, preserving the welfare and safety of all.
Great idea! Kudos to all!
