Question: Cats

as many of you know i have two adorable cats - Albus and Minerva. they are currently living with my parents up in duluth in a kennel that chris and i (mainly chris) built. soon (december 1st to be exact) chris and i move into an apartment that allows pets and then i can have my babies back :) until then....

the kennel is located in the garage - not one that is attatched to the house and one that is not heated. the cats cannot be brought into the house for health (allergy) reasons and i'm worried.

the northland can get pretty darn cold into october and november and i'm worried about the cats being out there! my mother insists that they'll be just fine - that they are inside the garage and not outside. i say the garage is at maybe 1 degree warmer than the outside temp and that if forced to stay outside until december 1st they'll turn into catsicles!

am i wrong? will they be fine? ideas?

The cat that adopted my parents (Riley - I don't know that you've met her) lives in the garage during the winter and usually goes out for a little while now and then when it's not ferociously cold. Granted, northern Ohio isn't Minnesota, but it did get pretty fracking cold last winter, including a period of at least a couple weeks where it barely got above zero at all. And the coldest weather doesn't usually hit until after December, at least around here. Maybe they'll be okay if you give them some blankets to snuggle up in.

I suppose you're right. And I can't really argue with her when she's been paying for their food and litter and what not since I moved....sigh...

i need to be a better cat mom
