I bought two of these for my two indoor cats. It's been incredibly cold here and my rental is old and not well insulated so it's always chilly inside. My cats absolutely love these and lay on them for most of the day, although they leave them at night and hang out on the bed instead. One of them didn't seem to like the texture at first and wouldn't use it, but I put a blanket over it and now he'll curl up on the mat. It doesn't feel like it's heating much at first, but if I put my hand under the cats or touch the mat after they've jumped off, it's very, very toasty. I've also used the mat as a back warmer for myself and I'm debating buying another one for that purpose. Overall I'd recommend, and if your cat seems to avoid it, maybe try a blanket or shirt or something on top. Also, I pre-warmed them at first with a stack of books so when I introduced the cats they'd feel that the mats were warm.
Not Warm Enough
During the winter time my cats love a heating pad. I always put out my human heating pad that has 4 settings (from low 1 to high 4). I wanted a heating pad designed for cats, so I bought this mat in green. Unfortunately, Katniss still prefers the human heating pad. This product doesn’t get warm enough. It is destined to feel warm after sitting on it for at least 20 minutes. That’s not how my cats are drawn to snuggling on surfaces. This product is not warm to the touch when you plug it in and There are no settings to increase heat. The quality itself of the product is nice, I’m not disappointed in the production. Side by side, my cats prefer the human heating pad because it is warmer immediately. They investigate the cat pad but almost never prefer it. I don’t recommend because it isn’t warm enough immediately and my cats don’t use it.
17yr old cat loves these
My cat alternates between my lap and two heat pads. He sleeps all night on one of them. Very nice for a cold climate and a senior cat. My only complaint is how the internal foam gets a little bunched up and needs to be straightened when my cat has used it for a while. I also leave the zipped end open so the cord can be better placed in the middle of the pad, so the heating element can be where my cat likes it. Apart from these changes admittedly made by me and not my cat, he loves his "toasty pads"
Soft warm bed for kitty to stretch out on
Got this bed for my big boy to lay on, but he liked the round one with high sides better, so I gave this one to my girl cat instead and she loves it. Put it in her favourite chair and she immediately started kneading it. Alternates between curling up on it and stretching out. It's a bit longer than I like it, as both ends hang over the sides of the chair. But its fine and she enjoys it.
This isn't the first K&H Thermo mat I've purchased; I bought this one to have an additional mat. My cats are all getting up in years and the strictly outdoor ones appreciate warming beds in the cold weather as much as the indoor/outdoor gang. I have used this mat in dry sheltered areas as well as indoors (I have others for outdoor use with protected cords). In the past cats sought out warmth on my DVR--no longer. This soft mat gives them a warm, comfy bed as long as someone else doesn't beat them to it.
My cat is obsessed with this mat
I bought this because I have a big fat snowshoe cat who seems to be part lizard. He loves anything warm: heater vents, heating pads, laps, other cats, anything. I didn't feel secure having my medical heating pad plugged in all the time so I bought him this. He loves it. Before I even got it heated up the first time he was already making biscuits on it and started his 2nd breakfast nap (part hobbit I guess too) but he loves it. I haven't noticed my power bill going up significantly and anyway it's a small price to pay for our not-so-wee beastie to be warm.
Max loves it
Max, my 26 pound cat seems to enjoy this heated pad under his blanky on his favorite bed which happens to be the guest room bed. The pad is large enough for him to stretch out on and heats up quickly. He seems happier and seems to sleep more soundly. Max is a re-homed 9 year old cat who has been struggling to adjust to my other 3 male cats for a year. This heated pad seems to help him feel secure, rest comfortably and be less aggressive to his housemates.
This barely works. I wasn't even sure if it was actually on and working that's how little warmth is generated. It is also kind of lumpy, the heating element is smaller than the sleeve it goes in, and doesn't have a lot of padding. Not a great product and I will be on the search for one that actually gets warm.
I have two old cats, one is 17 and the other is 18 and wanted the heated mat to help them with arthritis on the colder days. The cover on both the front and back was nice and both cats liked the covering but the amount of heat is almost non-existent. Also wish it was a little bigger, and the cord a little longer. We only bought one to see if they would like it and would have bought a 2nd if they did. Considered returning this item, but more trouble returning than keeping. This is the first item we have bought from Chewy that we did not like.
PIglet loves her bed warmer. She was feral and now is spoiled rotten, but still prefers to be outside. She sleeps in the garage and I worry about the cold as she gets older. I looked all over for a bed warmer, but should have started at Chewy. The warmer arrived in just a couple of days, and she loves it. We can always depend on Chewy.
