1. My old cat of 16trs has started to sleep
    Outside on a garden chair under table. She never did
    This before . She eats and will
    Not come in the warm. She stays under the table in the rain cold .
    This is really unusual for her . This has gone on for a month

    1. Hi Theresa,
      Sorry to hear that, it must be unsettling for you not knowing why she has suddenly changed to sleeping outside. Has anything changed in your house? Is it noisier? Could she be in pain and so needs her own space and is avoiding being touched? I’m just providing you with some thoughts, I’m no expert! I hope things get resolved soon. Best wishes, Rachel

  2. I have 2 male, neutered cats 7 & 8 years old. They are indoor/outdoor cats. About 4 or 5 days ago they both started staying outside all the time except to come in to eat. There is a little table & 2 chairs on the patio by the windows & that’s where they lay & sleep all day. They used to lay around in the house most of the day. It’s hot outside so I don’t understand why they wouldn’t want to be in the cool house.

    1. Cats are significantly less effective at regulating their body temperature than people are, which makes the situation worse. They just slightly perspire from their paw pads, which is insufficient to adequately cool their entire body in hot conditions.

      As a result, they prefer a hot climate to a cool, dry one.
