As we are nearing the end of our second week of sub-zero temperatures, it is important that we keep our pets in mind. I feel like I should be driving around picking up any strays I find wandering the streets just to get them out of the cold.
I watch my dogs outside during those brief potty breaks and see how cold their little feet get (I've tried using the booties and they won't keep them on) and can only hope for those poor homeless or lost dogs and cats that they are able to find warmth somewhere.
It iritates me to no end when I still hear those morons say "my dog is fine, he has fur", "cats were meant to be outdoors, he'll survive". If you don't want to do outside, what makes you think your pet wants to go outside, especially for any length of time.
Anyway, warm thoughts to everyone and their pets.
