Every time my pet parents leave the house without me, I’m afraid they’ll never come back. More than anything I want to go too. I use all my tricks to try to convince them to take me with them. But my pet parents know that I’ll be safer and happier at home. I’m not allowed to go inside many places and it’s too dangerous for me to stay in the car … even for a few minutes. According to the ASPCA, it only takes ten minutes on an 85-degree day for the inside of your car to reach 102 degrees, even if the windows are left open a couple of inches. And in 30 minutes, the car interior can reach 120 degrees. When my pet parents leave without me, I sit by the window and wait for them to come home … cool and happy and safe.
