My Cat Likes Having A Sunbed With Me!


I have a sunbed at home and whenever I use it my cat likes to lie next to me and sprawl out in the same position as me, half under the sunbed so she can feel the heat - is this dangerous for her? I think she just likes the heat but I'm worried about her eyes...



Dear Debbie,

You should keep your cat away from the sunbed. Not only for the sake of her eyes, but cats get skin cancer also, especially cats with any white fur. Why take the chance.

Thank you for writing,
