The K&H Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed with free Cover
The Lectro-Soft is a soft, orthopedic take on the award-winning Lectro-Kennel that has been warming pets for more than 30 years. It has all of the great features of the original Lectro-Kennel, but its exterior is made of a super-soft, waterproof and durable PVC material giving owners much more flexibility in placement and transportation while giving pets extra comfort. The 5.5-foot cord is steel wrapped to ensure your pet's safety.
The Lectro-Soft bed utilizes an energy efficient, thermostatically controlled heater designed to never exceed the body temperature of your pet down to 20 degrees outside. It warms your pet's normal body temperature and includes a free super-soft, removable and washable fleece cover that is specially designed to deliver maximum heat and comfort to your pet.
Please note: This product is not recommended for pets that chew or are destructive in any way. If this is the case, try the Original K&H Lectro-Kennel Igloo Style Heated Pad.
The K&H Lectro-Soft is easy to clean, just wipe with a damp rag. Allow to dry completely before plugging it back in.
The free Fleece Cover is machine washable.
Testing your K&H Lectro-Soft
You'll notice that the K&H Lectro-Soft may not feel warm to the touch when your pet is not on the pad. You can test the pad by placing a large pillow on top of the pad. After about 20 minutes, feel under the pillow. It will feel warm, not hot. Do not use an extension cord or place anything on the pad (other than the fleece cover provided) any other time. This should only be done during testing.
Features in a nutshell:
- Rugged, heated pet pad for indoor or outdoor use.
- Free machine-washable fleece cover included
- Ideal for doghouse, kennel, garage, basement, or porch.
- Great for cats and dogs.
- Internal thermostat warms bed to pet's normal body temperature when in use.
- Low wattage and economical.
- Available in 3 sizes.

I will add insulation below the pad and test some more. Then I'll update this review.
1. Even if the pad runs 24/7 the most it costs me about $1.25 / month in electricity. I enjoy a .low rate of $0.085/KwH rate. YMMV It is likely less than this because it is thermostatically controlled.
2. 80 degrees is not 102 but it is still a warm bed for a feral cat.
3. Since the temperature appears consistent at between 78 and 80 the thermostat is working
4. I'm adding a thermostatically controlled socket ($14 on Amazon) to turn off the unit when above about 40 degrees.
5. My information regarding not being pressure sensitive is directly from the manufacturer
I'm generally pleased with the pad but dislike when sellers try to imply things do something they do not. It makes no difference if there is a pet on it or not. Just be honest.leave off the bogus 102 degree statement.
This year I resolved to get her into the darn shelter. I started by placing her favorite blankie (the "Mysterious Purr Pad") into just the flipped lid on the deck. No problem. Then I moved the pad into the body of the kitty tube, with the lid off so she could see the sky and not feel trapped. After a while, she adjusted. But when I put the shelter's lid on, she took off for parts unknown again. I decided to try a heated pad in a last ditch effort, and settled on the small sized Lectro-Soft because it was reasonably priced and would easily fit into the 22" diameter (round) Kitty Tube. I started with the Lectro-Soft underneath the Purr Pad in the top-free shelter again. She took one step on it, settled down, and barely budged for 48 hours. Impressive. The moment of truth loomed when I saw rain in today's forecast. The shelter top went on just as the first drops hit after breakfast. She poked her nose through the entrance, pondered her options and lit out for the territories. Rats. But wait! I went down a few hours later, and there, between the raindrops, glimpsed a furry ear inside the shelter. She peered out at me through the downpour like, "Yeah? You were saying?" I'm now feeling much more sanguine about the winter.
PRACTICAL DETAILS: the many heated pad options may be confusing (I was confused!) This one is more flexible than the rigid "Extreme" or "Original" versions, but it has a tough vinyl coating with a removable soft cover, and seems plenty durable. The 14" x 18" pad initially looks small, but cats hunker down or curl up in ways that compact their bodies. The only caveat is the size of the plug head, which didn't fit through the cord hole in the Kitty Tube (the pad the Kitty Tube folks manufacture - at twice the price - has a segmented cord that threads through the small opening.) I just ran the cord through the door of the shelter instead. I'm attaching photos so you can see the set up. (First = Lectro Soft inside the Kitty Tube with the roof off; second = power cord coming through the KT opening.)
Bottom line? This thing makes cats happy, which makes us happy. Get it.
EDIT: I discovered the Lectro-Soft's one weakness: if anyone pees on it, it's hard to get the urine smell out of the soft vinyl cover. I discovered this when another (male) stray tried to move in on my girl cat's territory. I ended up buying the "original" pad, which is rigid plastic and doesn't retain odors, for my girl feral. The new male inherited the lectro-soft he'd peed on. Now they're both warm & happy.
Prior to using this pad, we used straw to further warm and insulate the cat in the Kitty Tube. Straw is the ideal material to use for outdoor animals as it does not absorb moisture like fabrics do. I'm using the fleece that came with the pad for now, but will have to keep an eye on it to make sure it does not get moist. I don't know if the warmth of the pad will be enough to keep it from doing so. I may have to go back to the straw. I'm attaching photos so others can see the setup in case they have outdoor cats who need something like this. We keep the entrance to the Kitty Tube facing our house to minimize wind/water intrusion and the green container on top is a covered "feeding station".

However the problem with these mats is that only the mat surface directly underneath the animal will actually heat up. Measure even an inch away from the animal the mat will be stone cold (ambient temperature). This is just the design of the mat, which supposedly has "dual thermostats", although i think really it just means that the heater is weak, because it cant actually heat specific parts of the mat separately (so really it is just too weak to maintain a high temperature when exposed directly to the air). This is not good when the temperature is -10C or -20C, because the entire area around the animal will be freezing cold, except for the small area underneath them. So if they move around or change positions, it will take another 15 minutes to heat up underneath them.
The Farm Innovators mat on the other hand heats the entire surface of the mat at all times, regardless of whether an animal is on it or not. In cold weather (-10C) the fleece cover (which is exposed to the air) will sit at around 20C, and the mat underneath will be at around 30C. When an animal sits on it, it will heat the area under the animal to 37C very quickly. So the area around the animal will be sitting at around 20C, which also warms the air a bit too. This allows them to stretch out and change positions more easily without getting very cold for 15 minutes, or forcing them to sit in one position.
Also the Farm Innovator mat is easy to test. It has a red indicator light and is noticeably warm to the touch. The K&H mat you have to bring inside and put something that doesnt create its own body heat on it to tell.
So overall the K&H is a good mat, it's lasted a long time and it does the job, but for very cold winters, the Farm Innovator mat is better in my opinion.
The best measure of life investments with Krazee Katz is them thanking you, in their own way, and acknowledging with an equal "purr"...cat talk!
Great investment, great quality for practical purposes, unselfish.
it works amazing, keeps his bum warm and shuts off when he comes in the house. Now I can sleep knowing he is warm and comfortable. He has a heavy coat but I always worried the cold cement in the garage would penetrate through his bed and make his joints ache.
Great product, does what is says it does. Arrived on time and was easy to set up. - I should get one for Grampa to sit on the couch, he always complains about aches too! and it would shut off when he is not sitting on it.....There's a new product line......:)
