Our Persian cat was shaved yesterday and now it's become sensitive about touching and I think also he could become cold at home by this situation, his conditions now and before are like this:

So I like to know does he needs the cloth at this weather situation (temperature in Celsius). What temperature in home is good for him at this condition?

Also, what other method for helping him to stay warm do you know, which he also liked that and be available easily?

  • Since this is an international community, it would help to specify weather the temperature is given in °F or °C. – Elmy Mar 16 at 10:16

    Unless there is a real need to shave your cat (overly matted coat--prevent this by brushing, medical procedures, etc), you should not shave him. His coat lets him regulate his temperature just fine on his own; there's no reason to "help" by taking it away. – Allison C Mar 16 at 12:44

I am assuming your car is an indoor only cat.

Keeping your home at a temperature that feels comfortable to you should be ok. If you are cold your cat will be too.

You can get your cat a cat sweater or you can make something out of a childrens shirt or something similar. Be aware that the cat might not like it at all then you should look at the other options. If you decide for a sweater please also look at this description how to safely put a sweater on your cat.

I recommend to give your cat sleeping places (blankets, beds) next to heaters where it will be warm.

If you feel he is particularly cold you can make him a hot water bottle and wrap that in a blanket. He will probably like sitting on/next to it.

Otherwise you have to wait for the hair to grow back but your cat should also adapt to the circumstances within a few days. The cat will search for warm spaces by itself, make sure they are available to it.
