Cool Surfaces for Hot Cats

As I previously mentioned in "Cooling off in 100°F Weather" Suki lives in Southern California, where it gets so hot inside and outside.  We don't have a very good air conditioner (it only cools off in about a 3ft radius right above it), so I've been looking for ways to keep this kitty cool.

One thing I have noticed is that Suki has really enjoys spending the hottest parts of the day on my yoga mat. For good reason to! While hardwood floors remain cooler than the carpet, the yoga mat offers some padding and a little bit more comfort for her.

It's also pretty funny to watch her stretch on it.

How does your cat or dog cool off in comfort?


  1. Hi, thanks for popping over to visit us and for taking the time to leave a comment. It is lovely to make your acquaintance. Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

  2. Our house is on a slab and we have ceramic tile in the kitchen and hall, so that's the best place for belly flops when our house is hot.

  3. Maybe I'll cut one of mine & use the pieces in their carry-bags, as they may just get hot due to stress from flying for their 1st time...Thanks!
