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.

I own and operate a house call cat care service in New York City. Cat grooming and cat sitting. My training and experience includes years of working with animals in veterinary clinics, shelters and private homes. I do comfort grooming, for the purpose of keeping a cat clean, un-matted and free of excessive shedding fur. View all posts by Spiffy Kitty House Call Cat Grooming
