Walking cats outside in summer

Cats can feel heat on their paw pads, though from what I’ve read, they feel it less than we feel heat.  Some cats have heat-blocking fur on their paw pads, but many don’t. If you’re walking your cat on a hot day, try to walk on grass or dirt, or try to walk in early morning or early evening.  Cats are most active during early morning and early evening, so your cat might have more fun then.
