Venus fly traps

Has anybody ever kept these ? I've had 2 for about a month on a indoor windowsill but now I've got a cat that needs to be kept in more they will end up on the floor as he's aways on the windowsill. I've got a south facing shed window which is warmer and more protected and a plastic walk in greenhouse which is kept open with tomatoes and cucumber in, which is better for them please also I'm hoping to get some sundew (the sticky ones) some time this week. Any thoughts greatly appreciated

    mine have been outside in a bog garden all winter, unless it drops below -10 they are totally hardy plants, they need full sun and be kept damp, apart from that they're not picky.
    there are some native and hardy sundews but most you can buy in this country aren't particularly hardy
  • Mine live outside all year in a pot standing in a bowl of rainwater.

    Thank you for all your replies much appreciated. I think I was just being a bit over protective regards heat
