I locked Oliver away on the back porch early this year, in middle of afternoon. He wasn't too pleased with that arrangement, but too bad! As the night progressed I think he came to appreciate that decision. He was super scared and desperately wanted to come inside. So, once again, I pitched my sleeping bag on the mudroom floor, so he could cuddle and feel safe.
Oliver purred and purred!
As you can see in the photos, we both suffered significantly by this arrangement!
