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 I put a wet cool tea towel over my greyhound to cool him down.

I also give him and my other dog ice cubes to crunch up—but it’s important to watch the size as they could damage teeth on big cubes.


@Brainship ah I don’t have a dog, and my cats aren’t that much into wet things. Great idea otherwise!
