Just like humans, your cat has a difficult time sleeping when he is cold. Cats prefer warmer temperatures. It's common to find your cat snoozing in the beam of the sun, or curling up in your lap in the hunt for warmth. From the time your kitty is born he has a keen awareness of temperature thanks to receptors on his face. As your cat ages, he becomes even more sensitive to temperature. It's this sensitivity to temperature that makes a heated cat bed a feline's best friend.

Is a heating pad too hot for a cat?
A heating pad for humans is too hot for a cat, so be sure to choose a heated pad or bed made specifically for felines.

Heated cat beds and pads also have different safety features like chew and claw-resistant casing and cords, low wattage, and even pressure-activated heating mechanisms to save energy. Always choose a heated bed made specifically for cats to ensure your furry friend’s comfort and safety.
