With this heat, I put out water for cats who can’t or won’t go inside - my cat’s can (but like it outside), but some other cats may not be able to. Probably the hedgehog who lives in our backyard also drinks from it and maybe birds or insects.
Also when I saw the mailman, I opened the door, offered him a glass of water and filled up his water bottle.
Not saying this to brag, but hoping others do the same. Also: if you have more ideas on how to help people and animals, I’d love to hear them.
@whakkee to help pets cool down, you can wet, twist and freeze a washcloth, and the animals can lick and chew on it and enjoy the cold and moisture but it's soft on teeth. And reuseable. Once it thaws, you rewet it and freeze it again.
