Snuggle Safe Heat Pad
Everyone likes a nice snuggle with a warm and fuzzy toy and cats and dogs are no exception. There are numerous heated dog beds available, as well as heated cat beds, but some people aren't comfortable using an electrical bed for Fido or Garfield. If that sounds like you, you're in luck -- the Snuggle Safe heating pad gets the job down without having to be plugged in. You simply toss it into the microwave, follow the directions for heating and voila...! Warm and snuggly object of affection for 12 or so hours! Not only that, but you can also buy adorable snuggly covers in the shape of a dog or cat that your 4-legged baby can cozy up to in the winter months. You might even want to get one for yourself!
Snuggle Safe Heatpad
The SnuggleSafe contains a non-toxic substance called Thermapol which heats up when placed in the microwave. Once heated it will stay warm for 12 hours during which time your dog or cat can curl up with it and stay warm. This is perfect for puppies or kittens or their mothers in the whelping box. It can also be used to keep rabbits and other animals warm -- but it's not meant to be used as a toy and shouldn't be chewed on; make sure you don't inadvertently encourage your pet to play or chew on it. The snuggle safe is made of plastic and should always be covered when in use. You can buy one of the fancy covers seen below if you'd like a backup for laundry day.
