Hi. Although I haven't found a place to purchase,
I am still likely to move to LV in the last 2 wks
Of may.

I am heat sensitive, so lots of water, sun bloc etc.

Am concerned about my 10 yr old challenged cat.
She is deaf, has neuropathy & overall
Heat sensitive (labored breathing - way worse
In humidity.
Here on SoCal I usually get her shaved
To decrease her heat & furball puking. Rich
Undercoat like down.
Here I shave her in July as it is still cool
Thru evenings w/ June gloom. Low clouds
In from coast.

Do you think I should shave her before the
Move - weather charts indicate LV June's can
Be like inland empire aug.
thanks

You could probably shave her. I'm from SoCal (Northern LA County -- nearly upper desert), and I'd say it's slightly warmer here but far less humidity.

That said, if you're going to keep her indoors, and you're going to use air conditioning to a suitable level, it would be hard to guess whether she needs to be shaved. :shrug:

Me too...My main man is a Maine Coon who is as hairy as they get. He gets his belly cut short to stop the knotting and weed acquisition. But he does fine with multiple levels of heavy hair.

These creatures are thermos bottles. Their fur and skin do not allow heat to pass. They cool by aspiration not conduction.

Just make sure they have lots of water.

I had my cat shaved into a neat lion cut when I lived in Vegas. He looked great. The place is in Green Valley, can't remember the name right now...will post later.

lvoc speaks sooth.

But the main thing is you can't let a cat roam free outdoors in Las Vegas anyway. Especially not a cat that is deaf, and has other health problems. Indoors she will bask in air conditioned comfort, so why put her through the stress of losing her fur?

We moved here with a deaf cat in 1964. We realized he wouldn't hear danger coming, so he stayed inside and fathered several children. Hey, it was the 60's ...free love and all that.

There must be 50 ways to shave your kitty,

I would leave the cat alone, and let IT adjust to the weather. I have several friends with cats
and they all get along fine..
