I'm wondering why someone who is so heat sensitive would move to the desert? That would be like me moving to Alaska. (I hate the cold and snow)

And I would never shave my cat. (feline that is)

Actually I am heat sensitive but here in inland Cali as. Well.
Was worse in humidity. It's a condition that comes w/untreated
Autoimmune problems. Mine took 20 yrs to diagnose.

It will be a little hotter w/out break in heat btwn. Where I live
Now & Vegas
The real issue is that it is financially impossible for me in
Cali.


Thanks everyone. She only sits w/me on patio but is indoors
Otherwise. Maybe just the shave on the belly. It's soft ' thin
She eats it & pukes! Then she wants to eat cause she thinks
She is hungry...... In person words, about a 70 IQ.

Nice though. None of that feline arrogance. More dog-like.

Your cat is like my cats. They puke a lot too. Although a lot less now that I quit feeding them certain cat treats. I now have a baggie on my desk with their regular cat food in it, and i give that out as treats. They don't seem to notice the difference.

If I were you, try renting an apt/condo first before finding the home you want to be in long term. Most places accept cats. And most places have balconies or patios. Some places have garages, but they will cost more than places that just have carports. So by renting first, you will be able to scout out neighborhoods and find one you really like to settle down in. Many apt complexes do want long term leases, but if you tell them you are buying a place, some will give you shorter leases, like 3-6 months. The only downside to that, your rent may go up at the end of each lease.

Why wouldn't you ask your question of a Vet?

Have you considered moving farther north where it is cooler in general?

I have a cat that I always thought was dog-like. She fetches, comes when I snap, very smart. Then I got dogs and see that she is nothing like them

What is interesting about animals, when we lived in Montana, our dog had a thick undercoat, with dense fur. When we moved to Vegas, he became a smooth coat dog, and lost the thick undercoat.

Anyone else notice that about their pets?

Our cat still had long fur, and he felt 'sweaty', but even his coat was less dense. He was happier shaved down.

I've noticed it -- the fur thickness differing depending on the temperature.

Never has happened in our past or present Lhasa Apsos. But then again, they don't shed much at all.

Yep. Cats get a winter coat but only if they need it. One of my long haired cats used to get extremely wooly in the winter when she used to go outside. Once she became a full time indoor cat she no longer grew that wooly coat.
