With the summer come thoughts of being outdoors and enjoying the warm weather, going places and just having fun in the Sun. But what about your Cat? They like to have fun as well and can’t wait to get outside in the Sun. Here is our ultimate list of cat summer gear to help you enjoy more time with your cat this summer.
With outdoor cats it’s easy to just walk out the door, start exploring and have their little adventures. Their needs aren’t as many but we have some cool gear for them. Indoor Cats are stuck inside and spend most of the summer looking through the window so we have some neat gear to get them outdoors more and enjoying the season with you.
We searched around and put together a handy list of fun Summer Gear for your Cat or Kitten so you can spend more time with them enjoying the days of summer together.
Cat Summer Gear
Outdoor Cat Tents and Nets
Is your indoor cat clawing to get out and experience summer first hand? Getting an outdoor tent or net is a great idea to spend time outside with your cat without any worry of them wondering off, getting lost or bothered by other animals or insects.
Now you can bring your indoor cat with you on those beautiful summer days with complete safety and protection. Start with a short walk around the block, then some trips to the park and before you know it you and your cat are going to the mall and even jogging together. It’s a fun way to spend time with your house cat outdoors enjoying the summer sun.
Keep your cat or kitten properly hydrated this summer with a drinking fountain that encourages your cat to drink more. A good drinking fountain will aerate the water while keeping the water fresh and clean with a carbon filter. If your cat is dehydrated by not drinking enough then a drinking fountain may be the best answer.
Outdoor Cat Houses
This is a great way to protect your cat from the elements (wind, rain, cold, etc.) when the weather is not so nice this summer. An outdoor cat house can provide a secure, safe place where your outdoor cat can relax. They can be used indoors or outdoors and they work well all year round.
They are not just for taking your cat to the vet. Carriers are a great way to bring your cat with you on trips and weekend travels. Start with short excursions and build up to longer trips and soon your cat will really enjoy traveling around with you.
Cats shed more in the warmer weather and a good way to help them stay cool and feeling great is with regular brushing. It’s also a great way to connect with your Cat. Pick up a nice grooming brush and spend some time with your Cat each day to brush away some of their unwanted fur. They’ll love you for it and enjoy their time with too.
A Cat flap is a great idea for an outdoor cat. They can come and go as they please and you don’t need to worry if your cat has been let out or in. There are many great Cat Flaps to choose from so you can find the best one for you and your cat!
Scratching posts and pads
These are essential and chances are you already have a scratching post or pad. But if you’re in the market for a new scratch post or you just got a new Cat or Kitten then give one of these a try!
Some indoor Cats have no intention of going out and love to lay in the sunlight that’s streaming in through the window. Window perches are a great idea. Your Cat has a front row seat to what is going on outside and can grab a few sun rays while napping all from the safety of their air conditioned home. Check out these popular models that your cat is certain to enjoy.
