5.0 out of 5 stars Now going into our 3rd winter, and it's still working, November 3, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: K&H 3093 Extreme Weather Kitty Pad with Fleece Cover (Misc.)
Updated 12/29/11 It's still working fine going into our third winter. I am planning on buying another one for another perch. The cat loves it.

Updated 11/5/2010: Still working after one year. Our cat seems to like it, and with only a 40W rating, it uses little electricity. I have been keeping a large bath towel over the supplied cover, and it works fine. The cat is nice and toasty. I have also upgraded my review from 3 stars to 4.

Like another recent review, this is a hard plastic heating board, not a flexible pad like a human heating pad. Let's see how this goes. Instructions say not to cover it with anything other than the special pad provided. I think the manufacturer wants you to buy their covers. With only 40w output, anything would probably work. I can't imagine a 40w output would burn out with another cover on top of it. It you are expecting something soft and flexible, keep looking.

I have had two of these beds and I used them only with the recommended fleece pad. The thermostats on both went bad after about two years, and overheated. I am afraid that this might be a fire hazard.

I would not recommend using towels for an outdoor shelter in general. They're made to absorb moisture and so they tend to get damp and stay damp, even when not exposed directly to rain/snow. In very rainy weather, they can feel almost wet from absorbing so much water in the air. For safety and comfort, I would recommend using the cover that's made for use with the pad, because it's very thin, and I actually think the thinner the covering, the better, so that the heat really comes through.
