Bismarck – You’re not the only one suffering through this latest arctic blast.
So is your pet.
Animal experts say just because your pet has a fluffy coat or lots of fur, doesn’t mean they can’t suffer the same types of Frostbite humans do.
This is also the time of year when local shelters are inundated with calls from people concerned about stray dogs and cats.
KX News spoke with a local rescue shelter and they tell us it’s been an especially bad stretch for cats.
“We’re seeing a lot more phone calls with individuals concerned about the cats. There’s just a lot more, to begin with, and once they have to find places to hide, people are going to see them more because their scattering all over, it kind of feels like desperate times.” Said Terri Woo with Furry Friends Rockin’ Rescue.
She adds– watch your pets body language when you’re outdoors with them.
If you don’t like to be out more than a few minutes in the cold, chances are neither does your pet.
