I often worry about our 3 pets while in the humid Summer weeks when the temperatures outside are really sizzling as well as humid.
My 3 pets love to be outside even though the temperatures are less than perfect.
They always spend all afternoon basking in the sizzling sun, although I think that isn’t comfy for them while the outdoor temperatures are in the 90’s. They come into the condo panting as well as very short of breath. All of us keep water out in more than two strange locations across the yard, but the pups still come into the condo painting, and last year while in the Last month of Summer I got such a wonderful idea. I decided to build an air conditioned section for the pets. I started off by taking the old kennel apart. I knew that I could use those pieces as well as repurpose them for something else. I made the area for the pets about half the size of the yard. I air conditioned the section using a portable evaporative cooler. The new portable evaporative cooler serves several purposes. It consistently recycles the water allowing cooled air to come out of the bottom as well as the reservoir is low enough to the ground that the 3 pets can drink from it as well, then during the afternoon the people I was with and I can leave the 3 pets in the air conditioned section for several hours. There is an area where they can rest in the sunlight as well as another spot where they can kneel in the shade. This Summer things will be a lot better for the pets. I guess they are really going to appreciate the swings that were made just for the 3 of them.
