What's a safe minimum temperature to keep my apartment during the day while my cat is home alone?

I live in Chicago, and as always, the winter this year is ridiculously cold. It's a brisk 14 degrees out right now, and it should get down to 7 or so tonight. Heating my charming (read:old) little brownstone apartment cost a fortune, and I'm trying to cut down on the cost wherever I can. I've already sealed all of my windows, and put those little pillow-log things on the doors to keep the drafts out. Now, I want to now, how low can I set my heat during the day while I'm out without hurting my cat? I've got it at 63 now without much of a complaint from him, but I'm hesitant to set it any lower than that.
