In the winter, can cats get sick by going from a warm temperature (inside) to a colder temperature (outside)?

If your cat has been kept indoors and suddenly tossed out in the freezing temperatures, I can't imagine that it would be good for it. But, outdoor cats do develop thicker fur if they're used to being outside in cold temps. You can help to keep your cat healthy, especially if it faces being outdoors, by taking her to the vets and making sure she's healthy to begin with and has all her vaccinations. Make sure that when she's outside, she has some shelter, even an open garage or a cat door so she can come in if it's too cold for her.
