Nature provided a a mega slip and slide during the night. It's a good day to stay inside, but dogs still have to go outside for quick bathroom breaks. Cats don't. Keep your cat indoors, especially in the cold.
Remember to thoroughly wipe off your dog's legs and stomach when he comes in out of the sleet, snow or ice. Unknowingly your dog can eat salt, antifreeze or other potentially dangerous chemicals while licking his paws, and his paw pads may also bleed from snow or encrusted ice. Do something inside with your dog or cat. Read them a good book. For ideas, check out the book selection on the right hand side of page. You'll need to scroll down a bit. Stay warm.
