The Pro and Cons of the safest heated pad beds for cats. 

Are you one of the Cat Owners who have a cat or cats who are always cold in winter. Your Cats choose the place who gives the most electric heat like your computer or behind the TV. Well, then I welcome you to my club for cold kitties. 

If you decide to buy a heating pad for your cat then you should look out for the safest heated pad beds for cats. 

One caution,  heating pads that are made for human are not for cats. You can injure your cat. Cats have sensitive paws and when the heating pad gets to warm it can burn their paws. 

KH Mfg Thermo-Mod Dream Pod Pet Bed.

The MET Mark indicates that the product has been evaluated for safety by an approved independent lab in accordance with the national standard.

I have to say I bought this one myself I thought it is a great look and fits easy anywhere. It was important to me that it has a kind of cover for my cats. 

Available in green and Tan. It has low wattage, gentle warmth and it provides ultimate comfort. Cats love it ( at least my cats do) it is also suitable for smaller size dogs.

The great feature I find is that the K&H Pet Bed Warmer can be taken out from the cushion so that you can use machine wash on the cover,( not the heating pad) A great thing is you can use it all year round with or without the heated pad. 

I like the simple modern design and low wattage. It has a large entry ( that is important if you have two cats trying to get in at the same time) 

Easily assembled together ( zipped together). The pillow has the polyfill. You can also use a blanket in summer when you remove the ped bed warmer.  The cat should never use the heating pad without a cover or the original cushion.

The Mod Dream Pod exterior is EVA based and has a rugged 600 denier polyester fabric surface. A two piece clamshell design with a zipper in the middle. Easy to store and taken for trips. 

It comes with a one year warranty. It has the safety listing MET.

Testing your K&H heated pad beds for cats:

In the beginning, I thought the bed is not heating up, but then I read the instructions and it says that the K&H heated bed may not feel warm when you touch the pad when your cat is not on the pad. That is normal. Test it out with a pillow. Place the pillow on top of the bed. After around 20 minutes, touch and feel under the pillow. You can feel that it is warm, not hot.

All the best heating pads for cats should have a safety standard. Those Cat houses can be used throughout the year with and without heating. Depends on which part of the world you live there are always summers what are cool at night. 
Cat houses with heating are great for older cats. It is like a good treat for them to keep the old bones warm. The same as humans our pets can get arthritis. 
There are more heating pads for cats available but those two I have tested and I use myself for our cats so I thought I share my experience with them.
