If that’s not possible, look for a feline sun cream or one suitable for babies. Check that it is at least SPF 15, fragrance-free and comes without an ingestion warning. Ingredients such as zinc, can be toxic to cats if licked. 🧴p
Discourage your cat from lying in the sun during times of peak UV intensity, either by keeping them inside or ensuring that they remain in a well-shaded spot. ☀
Sunburn can appear as red skin or hair loss. The most common areas affected to look out for are the nose, belly, inside legs, ear tips and the skin around the lips and eyes. ❗
Can cats get sunburnt? While all cat owners need to take precautions in the hot weather, cats with pale fur and/or a thin coat are particularly at risk. 🐱 Keep your kitty safe this#Heatwavee with our help.v

Never leave a dog in a car, even for a moment. 🚨 'Not long' is too long. ⏲️ Please RT our thread and help spread the word!
The Criminal Damage Act 1971 provides a lawful excuse to commit damage if you believe that the owner of the property that you damage would consent to the damage if they knew the circumstances (under section 5(2)(a). 🤔
Make sure you call the police using 999 and tell them what you intend to do and why. Take pictures and/or videos of the dog in distress and the names and phone numbers of witnesses. 📸
If you decide to break into a car without proper justification, this could be classed as criminal damage and you may need to defend your actions in court. 🧑‍⚖️
Depending on the severity of the situation, the police may attend and break into the car to gain access to the dog, or they may advise you to do this. 🚗
If you see a dog in distress, official advice is to dial 999 immediately and ask for the police. 🚔 A dog in distress in a hot car is an emergency and the police will advise you what to do based on the situation.
A car can become an oven very quickly even when it doesn’t feel that warm. When it is 22°C outside - within an hour - the temperature in a car can reach an unbearable 47°C. 🌡️
Dogs succumb to heatstroke quickly and, cannot keep cool as easily as we can. 🥵 Here's what you should do if you ever see a dog in a hot car.#Threadd#Heatwavee
