Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsD720 Very pleased!
We felt we needed more warmth inside the shelters we build for the stray kitties, using 50 gallon totes. We insulate the totes, but even with 2 inch insulation & blankets, in the bitter cold winters here, we didnt feel that was adequate enough for the kitties.
I searched all over the net looking for a heated pad this size, & was literally shocked at how expensive they were online, & locally at the high priced pet stores. I had no idea I'd find an affordable outdoor heated pad at WM online!
This does an excellent job of keeping the kitties warm, without being too warm. And I always make sure they have enough room in their shelter to move off the pad, should they become too warm.
I gave it only 4 stars for meeting my expectations, because the fleece pad that comes with this is very thin & offers no cushioning or comfort from the hard plastic of the heated pad itself. However, that isnt an issue as I have fleece blankets to put over the pads.
I highly recommend this pad for anyone who has an outdoor or indoor pet who likes to stay cozy warm.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ohiokittylover A lifesaver
Product does exactly what it says it does. We purchased one last year in November for an outdoor kitty that someone dropped off. I had my husband build a small plywood house with insulation in it, placed the pad inside, plugged it in, and the kitty stayed nice and cozy through an awful snowy, icy winter. Now someone else has abandoned another kitty and we are repeating the process this coming winter for the newest household member.

This sounded good in the specs, but doesn't heat up enough to do any good.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SadiesandDaphneysmom Good heating mat
So far my outside cat seems to like this heating mat. As a matter of fact my inside/outside cat will take over the little house that it is in and not let the outside cat use it if she can get away with it. So I have to make sure the outside cat is in it before I let the outside/inside cat outside. It doesn't get as warm to the touch as a human would like but the manufacture said it was designed that way!? They also said on the paper that came in the box with it that it is not intended for outdoor use. So I guess it is up to the customer weather they use it inside or outside. One thing I didn't like about this mat was it is made of hard plastic! It is not soft what so ever. But overall my cat seems to like it and that is what matters.
Rated 4 out of 5 by BlueAzaela Small Heated Pet Mat works and is easy to use
We purchased this small heated pet mat for a neighborhood cat who likes to live at our house. We built him a shelter using a large clear plastic storage container elevated off the ground. I didn't know that the mat was hard but it's well-made and the cat uses it often during the day and all night. There is a thin sheepskin pad for the top of the mat. The cord appears sturdy and safe. We have an outdoor electrical outlet, so it's no problem to plug it in and we didn't need any utility extention cord. There is metal wiring around part of the cord for pet safety. We put electrical tape around where the two electrical cord pieces meet. Temperatures have gone down into the twenties so far and the cat seems to be doing okay. The pet mat arrived in a nice box with instructions and it came within a week of ordering directly to our home. Outdoors, it feels slightly warm to the touch. We haven't had any problems with it and it's keeping the cat more comfortable and the shelter keeps him dry. I would recommend it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by rayjob Can't rate since my cat refuses to use it
I purchased this heated bed for my cat for use in the igloo cat home but she refuses to go into the igloo so I can't give a better rating since it hasn't served its purpose yet.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Puyallup02 neither pad or door fit the pet barn,WAY too large
both these items were right next to the pet barn we bought for a cat.AND yet neither
one of them fit the barn, i had to take them right back to the store,as soon as we got them.
i was VERY disappointed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MaxsMommaBear Excellent Quality! Excellent price!
I was looking to purchase 3 heating pads for my outside kitties....Prices at other Big Pet Stores were nearly 3X this price. The warmers come with fleece covers too, which were not advertised..
And an indicator light that lets you know it is working! Is supposed to turn off on its' own when it is warm out...I am very happy with this purchase.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Makettle2 Cat loves it!
Great product. Very good price! Only thing I
didn't expect was that it was a hard surface, not flexible,
pad. Guess I pictured drug store heating pads.
But works well and is very popular now that winter is coming.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HomeInGA Works great for outdoor cat
I purchased this to put in our outdoor cat's shelter area. She needed something to keep her warm during the cold nights. So far it's been working great and the cat seems very happy with it.
