RAMBO RAMBLES ABOUT… THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING LIT!
There are several things in life that are not very ideal… like trekking all the way across the kitchen only to be greeted by an empty food bowl… or getting hit by a car.
Now, I personally have never set paw out of the warmth of my home, but rumour has it that other felines are more adventurous. I’ve also been told that canines go on “walks” daily - and they actually have fun doing this! One can only wonder why.
Tricky thing with being outside in winter though – it’s dark most of the time.
Now us animals, we have decent senses that allow us to navigate in darkness pretty well. But the humans… they’re pretty useless. They don’t perform well in the dark. And bad news: THEY are the ones behind the vehicles zooming around.
My handy tip for my fellow pets who are out and about in winter: GET LIT
The equation is simple, really:
BEING LIT = BEING SEEN = NOT HIT BY VEHICLES = NOT DYING = HAPPY DAYS.
Here are a few handy things to throw on yourself to get LIT in the dark.
LED Dog Safety Collar by PetSol
Light up collars are a great and effective way to get your pet seen in the dark! I’ve taken a liking to these ones for several reason:
Very good level of brightness - first things first, it’s got to do the job it is made for!
Rechargeable - the USB charging on this means not having to worry about batteries.
Reliable and long lasting - the low power LEDs last really long and work consistently.
Easy to use - we all like quick and simple things, don’t need anymore stress in life.
Decently priced - let’s be real, we got to spend wisely. I need to make sure humans have enough to buy me treats!
A Reflective / Hi-Vis Jacket
These types of jackets are very helpful when it comes to being seen by car drivers!
To be completely honest, my humans have not used this one long enough to give it a fair review, but it’s been great so far!
Check out the jacket on Amazon, or have a click around to see what other brands are available!
And to the humans… if you are around a residential area, there will be cats and dogs around - slow down and drive carefully!
