Re: How cold can a cat stand?
When one of my girls was sick and colder than usual, I could easily see her shivering as she slept. If you notice your cat shivering, you've got the answer to your question. You can try leaving blankets or cat sacks around for them if they seem cold and you want to keep the heat down, but that didn't work with my girls since they like to sleep on top of things and not be covered up.
You might also call your gas company and see if you can sign up for budget billing, where you pay the same amount each month regardless of how much gas you use. That way you build up a surplus over the summer and don't get hit with huge bills in the winter. It's great for budgeting, and you can do it with the electricity too.
