What happens if a cat gets wet

When a cat gets wet, its body temperature increases, and the cat will be at greater risk of becoming chilled. If the cat is extremely wet and you cannot find a dry warm place for the cat to dry off, you may need to use a heating pad or a hair dryer set on the lowest heat setting. Do not use a heat lamp or a radiant heat source as they can cause burns.

What should I do if my cat has been out in the rain?

Cats are very susceptible to severe sunburn. A cat that has been out in the rain and then is exposed to the sun will have severe sunburn. This will cause the cat severe pain and can cause permanent damage to the skin. The best thing to do is to take the cat to an animal hospital and have the cat checked by a veterinarian. It is also a good idea to rinse off the cat with cool water and apply a mild, unscented lotion to the skin. This will help prevent a secondary infection from occurring.
