Winter is here and it’s tempting to snuggle up with your pet by the fire and stay put. Cats will love you for this but dogs may get a bit bored and mischievous! If your cat does venture out make sure that they can get back into the warm easily as cats left in the cold will often go in search of warm places and can end up trapped without food.
