What outside temperature is too hot for cats
One of the most common questions we get from cat owners is “What is too hot for my cat?” While some cats are born with a naturally built-in “heat sink” that allows their body to adapt to the climate of their native habitat, most cats are not as hardy as their owners might like. Even cats that are well-adapted to their native climate can be affected by heat waves.
Unfortunately, there is no hard and fast answer to this question. There are several factors that contribute to the health and well-being of your cat including age, physical condition, genetics, and environment.
The best advice we can give you is to consult your veterinarian. He’ll be able to advise you on your cat’s particular needs and whether or not an elevation has any effect on the health and well-being of your pet.

ME: (Cutting her off) "Maam, None of that matters for anything. We don't allow cats here and the ADA is quite clear about the laws regarding service animals, plus your husband is threatening to sue me. There's nothing further I can do for you."
