CatComfort Filter: We are leaving our three cats alone in the house for three weeks. At what temperature should we set the thermostat?
We have three cats: two 1-year-olds and one 13-year-old, all healthy. We live in Cleveland, where it is winter now. Our house is old and drafty, with (good) radiator heat on the first floor and (crapass) baseboard heat on the second. While we're away someone will be feeding them daily, but not staying in the house.
Without cats, we'd leave the thermostat set at 55 degrees. Is this too cold for them? What's the lowest temperature at which they will be comfortable?
