Hot Pavement Equals Hot Paws for Maine Coon Cats

It’s important to remember that if the pavement is too hot for you to walk on without shoes then it is probably too hot for your Maine Coon or other cat to walk on as well. It’s important to take note of the outside temperature when letting your cat out for the day. If your cat likes to walk around and prowl a lot then you should keep her in on hot days to prevent her from walking on hot surfaces and burning or blistering her paws pads (or the bottom of her paws). If you are used to walking our cat for periods of time on a leash, then you may want to consider putting cat shoes on her to protect her feet. Only do this if you can supervise your cat. For additional ways to keep your cat’s feet cool and safe from hot surfaces, talk with your best veterinarians Northwest Columbus, OH.
