FIVE THUMBS UP!!!
on January 27, 2010
Our fifteen year old cat, Buster, is very happy with his new heated cat bed by K&H Pet Products. It is a joy to see (and hear!) him sleeping and snoring away happily. (See photo)
It took him a few days to adjust, but he now uses it exclusively. Unsure of what size to order, I took Buster's actual dimensions while he slept, and determined that the medium sized bed would be best. With an inside measurement of 18" x 14" , it is small enough to offer him cozy comfort, but large enough for him to stretch out just a bit. Weighing in at just over 17 pounds(!), it seems to fit him perfectly.
At first, I was a bit "put off" by the actual size of the heating element. At 8" x 9", it seemed small for the size of the bed. After weeks of observing the cat, I can happily report that the element appears to be just the right size. It allows him to adjust his position to where he is most comfortable, giving him heat where HE wants it. Of course, everyone would be happy with a heated bed during the long Michigan winter! The element is easily removed so the zippered bed cover can be slipped off and washed. It is plugged in around the clock.
Three sides of the bed stand approximately 7" high. This offers something to cozy up next to, as well as giving the added feeling of security. The interior of the bed is lined with an ultra soft and touchable fabric. Like most cats, he prefers to be up off the floor, so the bed rests on a piece of furniture.
The cost of the bed caused us to think twice about the purchase, but has proven to be money well spent. Buster is an indoor cat, but he seems somehow in a better mood of late. Does this bed comfort his old bones so much so as to relieve aches and pains? I guess we'll never know that for sure, but we give it five thumbs up!!
