Cats are loving and attentive until a point, but only until a point. As soon as they get bored or overstimulated, they would much rather escape for a while than stay. So, if you want a companion who is not overly needy, a cat is a good choice.
What temperature is too hot for cats and dogs?
Dogs and cats have a normal body temperature between 101 and 102.5. Hyperthermia is a body temperature over 103.5, which indicates heat exhaustion or heatstroke. A proper care should help you avoid these kind of situations.
