Can kitties survive temperatures under 25 degrees F? Mine are outdoor cats, than stay in a pen next to our birds, and we are going to Illinois this weekend and i'm worried about them.. They have 3 walls, and the front is wire. We are going to put plywood around the whole front but keep a little bit open so they can look around outside. Plus a heat lamp through the winter, but we are going to do this after we get back from Illinois.. Do you guys think they will be fine?

Thank you!

Quote:as long as the cats have a place to hunker down thats dry and draft free they should be ok. barn cats survive all year round in unheated barns

They have a draft free place in there, there is a blanket over half of the wood box I have for them.

Oh, yes they are healthy.

My one cat, Cinnamon, is naturally thin, we are thinking because she was a rescue, and starved.

Provide a sleeping box filled with hay/straw/blankets and they should be fine. A VERY FERAL cat showed up here last winter. She spent half the winter living under a coop/loft that houses some of my pigeons. She finally moved to a utility shed where I provided a sleeping box filled with hay. She was sleek, shiny, and fat. After a brush with a coyote this spring, she left. I thought that she had been killed, but she came back about a month ago. She will no longer go near the shed - I think the coyote trapped her in there. I'm not sure where she will spend this winter?
