Hi! I’ve recently been taking my cat outdoors on a leash, but today it’s really cloudy and windy, no raining, no pouring…

The temperature is 19 Celsius and my cat does not seem bothered by that but I worry about it because I don’t want her to go through cold.
Im not from a place that cold is really strong since I live in the south of Spain but still curious about it

:yeah: Since I live in FL 19C/66F isn't exactly 'balmy' to me, but it certainly isn't anywhere near cold enough to bother a cat. If your cat is older and less tolerant of temperature changes, the odds are she will let you know when the temp isn't to her liking!

Some of the best advice a former vet gave me for our dog which can also be applied to your cat is - if it's too cold for you then it's too cold for your cat. That being said, I agree with the above members, 19C or 66F is a pleasant temperature.

If 19°C is a cold temperature, then I couldn't take my cats out in the backyard with leash and harness for more than 3 months a year ;)
The opposite question might be, when is too hot not to take the cats out? This past summer was extremely hot here, we had 35°C/95°F everyday for 4 months in a row, so I could only take them out after 7 pm.
