When is it Too Cold for a Cat to be Outdoors?
Typically, if it’s too cold for you to be outdoors for more than 20 minutes or so then it’s too cold for your cat to be outdoors. You should also consider keeping your cat indoors during snow storms. The temperature may not be all that cold, but white out conditions and heavy snowfall is good enough reason to keep your cat inside. If your cat refuses to come inside, make sure you leave the garage door open a small portion so your cat can get in. You may need to shovel this area throughout the night for your cat. If you know the weather is going to get colder or a storm is possibly approaching then you may want to start trying to ‘trap’ your cat indoors ahead of time.
