Self Heating Cat Pads: Convenient Warmth for Kitty
Keep kitty Warm!
It's that time of year when your cat wants to snuggle up and get warm. We all know how much cats love heat and the best thing I've found is self heating cat pads. These reflect your cats own body heat back to him and make him comfortably warm. They also make electric heated cat beds and these are also great, but not as convenient as the pads. For one thing, you don't have to plug in the self heating pad and so it can be put anywhere you please. Or I should say anywhere your cat pleases!
Add one to a cat bed you already have!
One nice thing about these pads is that you can add one to any cat bed you already have. That way it can be put away during the summer months, although I find my cats like them even then. With the air conditioner blasting away, they still cuddle in the beds with the pads in them. They are washable and help keep the cat bed cleaner. Instead of having to take the cover off the bed, which can sometimes be frustrating to get back on, you can just toss the pad in the washer.
Add one to your own bed!
They come in many colors and patterns and sizes, so finding one to fit whatever spot you have in mind is easy. Another place I use them is on my own bed. My cats like to sleep with me, but get mad when I dare to move, so they tend to sleep on other parts of the bed, instead of snuggled up with me. I put a couple of these on the bed and they love them. I wake up to find at least a couple of my babies on each pad.
Most of us are trying to save money right now and I have lowered my thermostat to help with heating bills. I always worry though that my cats aren't warm enough, but now that they have their heated pads, I know that they are nice and warm. These pads are reasonably priced too. The best thing about the Internet is that you can find some great prices from some of the more well known companies, so you can really save that way.
Great for cats recovering from illness or surgery!
I noticed at my vets office that the animals recovering from surgery were on electric pads. I have also put my cats on electric heating pads covered with a towel when they were sick or home from surgery. Now that they make electric heated cat beds, electric heated cat pads and the self warming cat pads, it is easy to give your kitty some safe therapeutic heat when they are sick or recovering. These are all a very low source of heat that is safe for your cat, as opposed to human heating pads that I always worried were too hot.
