Do cats feel the cold?

I ask because I know some cats spend their nights outdoors even when it's realy cold. My Moggy wants to be in the cat run when it's freezing outside and hates it when I bring her in. So cuz they have nice warm fur do they not get as cold as I think they must?

Re: Do cats feel the cold?

I would have thought they feel cold although my 3 eldest coonies will sit out in the run in all weathers! My moggie boy never wants to come indoors although my 2 girl moggies are straight on top of the radiators as soon as the weather goes below 20 degrees!

I guess we should remember that they essentially came from wild animals and are therefore used to the cold....although I am still adding extra cushions and blankets to the runs, just in case!!!

Well yes my siamese have about a million blankets etc at present but the mogs just seem to get on with it. They are all sat in the cold conservatory at the moment. I went in there and it's blinking freezing!

My conservatory doesn't have a radiator They do all have heat pads and hot water bottles. They can come into the dining room at night to sleep but they stay in the freezing conservatory!!! I think I may stock up on some igloo beds. Though my lot are so silly they end up squashing them down and sleeping on top of them!

Mine do exactly the same normally but they have taken a liking to these ones....they were only about 12 from our garden center so I think I got a bit of a bargain there! If we had ours indoors at night, they would end up all over the kids beds and I don't think that would be the best idea!!! We normally put an extra oil filled radiator out there for when it gets really cold

Re: Do cats feel the cold?

I wondered about this. Mine have been in with me for most of the day as it is cold and rainy outside.

With the cost of heating increasing so much I haven't had my heating on yet and just put an extra jumper on. I am at work all day but I do feel a bit guilty about the cats being in a cold house. They have plenty of beds to snuggle up in and there are eight of them so maybe they will keep each other warm?

I don't want to be a nasty, cruel slave but I can't really afford to leave the heating on all day either.
