Get an oil filled radiant heater, very quiet and safe, I use several of them in my house to heat individual rooms.
Is it at all possible to purchase a portable heater and stay at home with your cat until everything gets sorted? I know we had some portable, pluggable, heaters that worked wonders in the house I stayed before my apartment. We had zero insulation in this old house and a shitty built in radiator system so those portable heaters were a godsend.
Check Amazon! You might find a deal around this time of year.
Edit: This is the type of heater we had, it really did warm up a decently sized room and I think it'd help ya'll out for a short period and then you'd have something just in case things get messed up again.
Plants essentially stop growing at 7 celcius. Gotta get it up above 10 if you wamt results. Your light should help with temps and are fairly cheap
I currently have this radiator-style heater to heat my studio. It's pretty slow though and I have to keep it on the opposite side of the room because that's the only place I can plug it in.
I'm wondering if something like the Vornado would be better to push the air towards the other half of the studio where I sleep. What size room do you use it in? The amazon page says it's good up to 256 sq ft and my studio is about 500 total, but the actual living area may be closer to 300.
Get an electric oil radiator heater.
Heating up one room will be cheaper than your whole house, and oil radiators are pretty safe.
And blankets—get a nice heavy one, maybe even a quilt.
Here’s an Amazon link for an example:

I think that the oil radiators are the most efficient and safest for heating up a room.
You might want to look into a space heater for your nursery. We co-sleep, and in the bedroom we use one similar to this:
It's very safe to use and heats slowly and gently, and you can set it to whatever temperature you want to keep the room at.
You might consider two oil-filled heaters, one on each side of your apartment.
They are relatively silent, and unobtrusive.
The heating elements are enclosed, so they don't get dangerously hot - I can move mine around bare-handed if necessary.
Not sure what your electrical situation is, but using outlets on different sides of the room could prevent a circuit breaker from tripping.
I have a DeLonghi - an earlier generation of this, probably: [link]
Well thats good then. The one you have is basically like this one then?
Those seem to be the most common, and yeah, they work damn fine.
Where are you? Do you have an Amazon wish list for a heater? I can tell you that this type of heater is very effective.
If the landlord doesn't care that you're staying there rent free, just buy a couple of electric radiator heaters, like this.
If your heat is already electric, they shouldn't cost you much more to run.
I'd also start saving up to move to a new place once the landlord gets tired of having you there.
