Comfortable room temperature for cats in winter?
We have had a really awful summer this year in the UK (worse than usual) and its already getting chilly in the evenings. We have a system called central heating here which one can thermostatically control so it turns off and on automatically according to the room temperature.
I'm concerned about Toby being in a cold house all day in the winter when I am at work but my lack of pennies don't allow him the luxury of a toasty warm home all day either. But, if I turn the theromstat to a temperature he can live with that won't cause me to faint with horror when I open my heating bill after Christmas that would be great.
What do other people do in a similar situation in the winter months? And what would you suggest is the lowest comfortable temperature for a cat? I think Tobys pretty 'tough' so he wont wimp out at a little chilliness but I don't want him getting too cold!
