ABILENE, TX - Don't forget about your furry friends.
Veterinarians tell all pet owners to bring your pets inside.
Some people believe dogs and cats are resistant to cold weather because of their fur.
But-that is a myth.
Like people, cats and dogs are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia.
For any animals left outside, make sure they have a warm shelter that blocks out wind.
Also make sure they have blankets or hay for extra warmth and access to plenty of food and water.
