Cold Weather Care
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Not all pets live in places where it gets cold. People who live in Florida don't have to worry as much about their pets in the winter. But people in the North have to pay attention to their pets during the cold winter months. Cold weather can be dangerous for cats and dogs.
 
2     During the winter, cats that are outside will sometimes sleep under the hood of a car. It is warmer there, especially if the engine has been running. This is dangerous for the cat. When a car motor is started, the cat can be hurt or killed by the motor or the fan belt. If there are cats where you live, bang loudly on the hood of the car before you start it. This will scare the cats and give them time to escape.
 
3     A snowstorm makes it easier for a dog to get lost. The falling snow makes it hard for the dog to smell a trail. More dogs are lost during the winter than any other season. Keep your dog on a leash. Also, make sure it is wearing tags so that if it is lost, your pet can be returned to you.
