If you are a pet lover, then you may have already seen the trend of pet clothing. Whether you are a cat owner or a dog owner, the first thing you want to do when you bring a pet home is to make sure it looks charming, cute, and cuddly. This is where pet clothing really helps.
You can visit any pet store in your area or just browse the internet for some time and you will find tons of options when it comes to clothing for your pets. You can buy towel wraps, fleece wrap, sweaters, and more. The options are simply unlimited. But one question that might come in your mind, is your pet really in need of these clothes? The answer could vary depending on whom you ask the question. For example, if you ask the pet shop owner, the answer would be a resounding YES! And he will encourage you to check out the collection, but what if you ask your veterinarian? In most cases, the answer would be a NO!
They have several reasons to back that answer. Cat clothes could raise the body temperature of the cat more than normal, which can result in all sorts of problems including unnecessary itching, temper issues and, dehydration to name a few. As we know nature is the best when it comes to humans and animals. The way your feline friend has been equipped to handle excessive highs and lows in temperature is with the natural coat they are born with. There are certain clothing like sweaters, which can cause the cat to get into accidents such as getting tangled in tree branches, having the sweater stuck while jumping from one position to another.
An important aspect of putting clothing on cats is that it hinders their ability to move around freely. So the ideal situation is, not to consider clothing and instead invest in other stuff that your pet can enjoy for a longer time.
