Cold or just a trait of the breed

This is 1the second time I m typing this because I hit backspace on my Mac and lost my post....Grrrr. Ok. Here's my question/concern. We usually keep our house at about 74 or 75 degrees and after coming home from school tonight I noticed how cold George's paws and tail felt. He never shivers and he sleeps with a blankie and a chenille cushion on his perch. I tried to put a sweater on him, but he wasn't having it. I know that might sound like a dumb question but is this a trait of the breed or is he really cold. I am almost overly protective of him and it worried me.

I would not worry you keep your house warmer than we do in the winter and ours always find a warm spot to cuddle up on.

Poor Cleo was shivering at the cat show because they have the A/C on for the long haired cats.

Well i know Harley refuses clothes and feels cool to me at times but never shivers and is very active.:Wink:Must be a boy trait cause he is always into everything, even figured out how to open my kitchen cabinets...:Hysterical:
