I live in an attic with my cat and it just started getting really warm (+30°C). It is not well ventilated and I'm terrified for my cat. Do any of you know how dangerous it is to leave him at home during the day? Or any ideas on how to keep him cool?
You could use a fan. Make sure he has plenty of water.
Do you have an overhead fan? Seems like a couple of fans may be the only way to help your cat stay cool. Maybe oscillating fans would work better. Just be sure they are setting on a sturdy area, probably one on the floor and another on a table pointing in whatever direction your cat likes to lay. Try to find fans that have good protection in case your cat tries to play with the moving blade.
Be sure to have a couple of bowls of water placed where your cat can drink but where bowls will not turn over.
Hopefully there is some air circulation in an area that your cat can lay but not where they can hurt themselves.
i agree with the others--fans and lots of water. Is there anyone who could check on the cat for you during the hotest days?
Thank you so much for your answer. I am afraid to leave any fan or AC on, it's an old house and I don't think if it's safe. I am probably too anxious, I have AC but I am afraid to leave it on for 12 hours ( some days) when i am not there. But I don't know what would be more dangerous for my cat, staying in an attick at more than 30°C or leaving the AC on in an unsupervised old house for an entire day?
