Before my wife and I had kids, we decided to get a cat. We always loved animals and we grew up surrounded by these adorable and furry creatures. After some careful thinking, Jan and I decided what type of feline we were looking for. Our biggest requirement was that the cat was friendly because we knew one day, we'd have children.
I clearly remember the day we arrived at the animal shelter. There were so many adorable cats to choose from, but after what seemed like hours, we finally decided on adopting a two-year old orange tabby that we quickly decided to name Schmool, which was a name of a character in one of our favorite movies.
Schmool's a little bit older now. But, that doesn't mean he's slowed down one bit. Still, when Jan and I leave for work every morning, we like to make sure "Schmoolman" doesn't become overheated, especially during the summer months that are quickly approaching.
Our friend, a veterinarian, suggested that we put a couple electric fans throughout our home. These appliances don't just keep humans cool, they do the same for pets!
We've put fans in various rooms including our bedroom, where Schmool sleeps for about sixteen hours a day, the living room and the attic, which becomes notoriously hot in the summer.
After a long day of working, Jan and I come home, only to notice Schmool with more energy than a kitten! Our vet told us that cats are typically more alert the healthier they are, although she stressed that some cats are just lethargic no matter how healthy they are. Now, when we are gone for the day, we can be sure "Schmoolman" isn't overheating!
