I bought this to help spoil my older girl who is always cold (hyperthyroidism and lymphoma are tough). At first a I was a bit disappointed with it as the material didn't feel very good to me, and the heating pad is only about 1/3 the size of the outer pad, but both of my cats adore it, and the smaller heating pad appears to let them adjust how much heat they want without having to leave the pad. I might have to get a second one, since I've caught my younger boy (who she does NOT like) trying desperately to share it with her.
Bought this on a whim for my elderly cat who used to use a heated blanket (until it stopped working). Instantly fell in love with it when i laid it out on the bed, and pretty much lives on it now. Even the dogs try and steal it from her from time to time! Easy to set up and easy to clean!
A surprisingly 65 in FL this morning. Lovey Bug is loving her new, heated pad. At 13lbs there's plenty of room for her to spread out, once she warms up. Fits nicely under any one of her beds. Great price
I set this out tonight and my cat immediately sat on it to test it out, then sprawled his body over the entire thing. I have never seen him lay like that. It's like he's trying to get every part of his body to feel the warmth. He has a healing leg injury, and he is laying with that side on the pad, so I think it feels good for that. I am sure he would get off or shift of it was bothering him. I felt it getting warm so I know it worked. I'm keeping an eye on him via the camera (I'm attaching a couple pictures from the cam in night vision). He actually has a fixation with cords and was playing with the cord for the heating pad for a second, but luckily he can't really bite it because he has an e-collar on and hasn't figured out how to get things into his mouth. I also said "no chewing cords" through the cam and he stopped. I'll have to figure out some kind of barrier for the cord if he keeps playing with it. I had no idea he would love it so much. Too bad I didn't get it earlier!
We purchased this heating pad for our cat who was dying of cancer. It was exactly what he needed. A safe, gentle heat that was constant throughout the night. I was greatful it was safe enough to leave plugged in 24/7. Have seen other reviews of the heating element not covering the whole pad and to that I say it would have gotten too hot had it been any larger. Thank you K&H for giving our baby the comfort he needed at the end
I bought this because my cat likes to lay on my router that sits on my desk because it is warm. At first I wasn’t impressed. The one side is made out of some weird material that my cats want to scratch and tear up. I flipped it over and was using the wrong side! Now they both want to sit on it but only one can fit at a time. So I bought another today. I wish the color was prettier. I plan on getting some fleece fabric to make a cover like a tie blanket to spruce it up. The heat is just right. My cats love it!
My cat LOVES this totally.... His tendency to perch on my neck for warmth has declined. And it really doesn't get too hot which was my hesitation in purchasing it... It is easily portable & good price as well. So if I want him near me all I have to do is bring the matt over, plug in and get him to lie on it. We have found a good compromise for 'his way or the high way' when it comes to cuddles.
I think the material used for this is weird, but my cat Scooter who was always laying on our router for heat seams to like this pad very much. So, I am giving this 5 stars.
This was on sale and I have a skinny older cat. The grey outer pad is not well thought out. It sluffs off and a cat could lick and eat. Not safe. But I put a pillowcase over it and my cats are loving it. One cat or the other is on it constantly, and my skinny Mojito is on it all night. Four stars because of outer pad being no good at all.
Bought this for our elderly cat and she loved it! Our other cat and our Chihuahua never missed an opportunity to take it over whenever she got up. It's easy to unzip to remove the heating pad for washing. However, even before we washed it we noticed that the pad would shed in big clumps. That's the only reason I'm not rating it 5 stars. If it had a cover, it might prevent this issue.
