A few years ago, one of our cats began losing weight due to illness. We could tell he wasn’t comfortable when the temperature got cold in our home. To help with stiff joints and to keep him warm, we used a heated bed just for cats.
The Thermo Kitty Mat is an indoor mat that plugs into a household outlet. It’s designed to reach 102° when your pet is on the mat. It only warms to 12° to 15° above room temperature when not in use. You can remove the cover to wash it or use a lint roller to remove fur. It retails for $34.95.
The heated mat has also gotten a lot of use when we let our cats go into the three-season porch area. They have a comfy spot to watch birds while staying warm.
For safety, you should always inspect your mat for puncture holes or other damage. I would recommend only keeping the mat plugged in when you are home.
You can purchase the Thermo Kitty Mat and other heated pet products from Cozy Winters.
