Thx, spirite, I thought kitties don't feel the heat and I get the impression that they actually enjoy being kept warm cos I always see stray cats sun-tanning or go under the car while the engine is still hot.

Thanks all for the answers. I live in an old drafty house that needs a lot of heating. I was worried about him getting cold during the night. I've bought a bed that is off of the floor

I'm thinking of adding a cat sleeping bag too just in case. Thanks again for all the answers and the cute pictures.

I think cats deal with temperature adjustment,the same way humans do. If the cooling is gradual,(Indian Summer,Fall) kitty can cope a lot better,than if there's a sudden drop in temperature. You may know someone who went to Florida,stayed awhile,and when they came back were chilled to the bone-in 65 degree weather. Later they adjust to the cooler temps.

?,is thinning/thickening blood responsible?
