No way. I would never let my pets out in the cold. That is so cruel that some people do that. I bet they would not like to stay out in the cold.

Make sure if you let them out, you don't forget about them. I always use to yell at my neighbor for leaving her cats out too long. >:(

When we had an outdoor dog we put her in the garage in the winter.  Part of it was heated.

I couldn't leave any pets outside even here where we think 50 degrees is freezing and it makes me sad to think about.

All my animals are indoor.  My 2 cats have no desire to go outside.  They have heat in the winter and AC in the summer.  If they want to enjoy the snow they sit in the window and watch it.

My dog loves to go out and play outside but when the temperature drops he only stays out for so long and then returns to the comfort of his warm cozy house and his mom.

I don't agree with leaving pets out in the cold/heat. I did take my cat out on a walk yesterday because he loves the snow, but it was very short and I warmed up his paws as soon as we came inside. I know dogs can stay out longer and generally want to.

You should never leave your pets out in the cold.

My hardcore cat finally gave up her outside ways for a lil bit,Heard her crying at 5:30 am and she finally came inside when temps outside were in the low teens and  first thing she did was drink a  pint of water. Now we'll see how long she'll stay in and sleep on a comfy warm  extra blanket next to her sister ?
Please, try to ween her to wanting to become an indoor cat! I've 2 Spoiled Brat Cats named shadow (thief) who stole my heart into keeping him; & Splat (after Blood Splatter evidence) Forensic Files was on when she walked into my life. Both were from the streets & I made them become indoor cats! Sincerely, from a concern fellow cat owner.

My dogs have the choice to go in, or out, at their own discretion as we have a dog door. The coldest temperature, this winter, has been nine degrees, which is in a non-humid climate (Colorado). The breed, Golden Retrievers, are known for having heavier pelts, being uber brilliant, fun loving, and having a deep appreciation for cold and snow. I take them for a walk every morning and evening and they are absolutely crazy when it is cold and snowy. My eight year Golden likes to run at break neck speed, lower her shoulder and do a somersault in the snow-which is a trick that she has taught her seven year old brother. They will spend at least ten minutes chasing each other and rough-housing at open space near  our home.We did have an ice storm last week so they were not able to get down our deck stairs but  I walked them four times that day. Gotta love the cold!
