A couple of years ago I reviewed the Art of Paws Heated Pet Mat. The cats seemed to like the mat but living in Florida we really didn’t have enough cold days for it to be useful. I think shortly after I got it I removed the heating part of it and just used it as a cat pad. We had it on our coffee table and Floki used it quite often there.
We brought it with us to West Virginia along with the heating element. I used it as a pad to one of the cat crates during the trip here and it fit perfectly.
When we got here and realized how cold it was I reinserted the heating element and plugged it in. It was a big success.
All three cats took turns lying on it and often there were two cats at a time on it. I have no photos of Floki lying on the mat for some reason but I assure you he was just as interested at Chris and Frankie.
We will be heading back to Florida on Saturday and I plan on bringing the pad with us but I will leave the heating element here.
It’s pretty cold here in the Panhandle so that pad might come in handy. Safe travels!
I bet it will in January.
Thanks, by the way.
Love and licks,
We’ve set up heating pads in a couple of places for our senior cat. It’s cold enough here that even our young cat likes them. Sounds like you’re settling in just fine!
I need a heating pad for myself. I feel like I’m cold 24/7.
My home office is in the coldest room of the house, and I’m always cold too. I finally bought a space heater for under my desk. I’m sure you’ll enjoy Florida this weekend!
Every room is the coldest room in the house. My wife and I reaffirmed today that this is a summer home. Next year we will be gone by Thanksgiving, even though all our Christmas decorations are here now. 🙂
They’re drawn to those heating pads and beds like magnets!
You are right about that.
We have a heated bed that Miss Fitz is the captain of but we all will get a snooze in it here and there. Take care traveling
Thank you so much.
This is how some of us get sucked into never throwing anything out ! 😉
I am almost like the king of throwing things out. I think I considered throwing away the heating element but something stopped me. Perhaps it was my wife. I don’t remember.
That heated mat is wonderful and purrfect for winters in WV!
I wonder if they make those the size of a king size bed. 🙂
Cats do love their warm spots.
They sure do. Frankie still spends a lot of time on the heat vent.
A heated mat is perfect for West VA winters!
I’m looking for a human size one right now. 🙂
Ollie gets his big heiney in my lap to get warm. Then, he warms me. LOL!
I think that is called symbiosis. 🙂
Look at them enjoying their mat!
