Cold weather, no problem for outdoor cat

For most of the winter, Charleston has been unseasonably warm with daytime highs of 70° and nights at 58°. Our average winter temps should be 55° day, 35° night. Then overnight, just as the new year begins, the weather changes and the temperature drops. A lot! All of a sudden we experience temps dropping to 19° at night.
We have two small fruit trees, one orange and one lemon. Both are still in their post so we dragged them as well as a few other plants under the porch. Then rapped the pots with a big blanket.
The next morning we looked out the window and saw Salem, our black cat, curled up and sleeping in the pot of the orange tree and surrounded by the blanket.
