It’s not really their cat anymore as they’ve basically abandoned him and I now provide all of his care, including food, shelter, water, toys and everything except being inside. I would bring him in in a heartbeat except that I have a large dog who hates him and I also have budgies.
Anyway we are in the grips of a severe cold front. It’s -8 right now and -14 with the windchill. I brought him inside last night and set him up in my bathroom because it’s just too cold for him to be out there. I have to go to work this afternoon and I’m not sure if I should let him out and then bring him back in for the night or if I should just leave him in my bathroom for the day as well. By the time I get home tonight it will be -10 not including the windchill factor.
He’s a bit unhappy in the bathroom when he’s alone in there and meows and meows but when I’m in there he’s the happiest guy in the world.
He has plenty of beds and shelters on my covered deck so I don’t think he would be in danger of dying while I’m at work.
