If You Want To Keep Your Cat Happy, Read This Article and Buy a Heated Cat Bed Now!
In this article, you will read about the important items to consider when purchasing a heated cat bed for your feline.
Cats like warm places and will sleep in areas where they can get warm and comfy, such as near fireplaces, sunny windows and even on top of your head when you're in bed. If you keep missing your cat around the house, chances are he or she is out someplace sleeping in a warmer corner of your house or garden.
If you want to keep your cat in one place, it's probably time to get her a heated cat bed. These are great gifts for your feline friend and will be greatly appreciated especially during the winter months. Heated cat beds are also recommended for ailing or older cats or those with hip or joint problems.
Tips for buying heated cat beds
Look for a reliable heater unit. Some units are battery-powered, so there's not a lot of concern there, but there are
some which are powered by electricity. If this happens to be your choice for a heated cat bed, check if it is UL and CUL listed to ensure maximum safety.
Choose soft materials or fabrics that your cat will like. Plush materials like wool or fleece will do nicely and keep your cat coming back to her bed again and again.
Look for designs that are smooth with orthopedic bottoms or those that have indented centers to provide a cozier feel.
Cup-shaped heated cat beds are a hit with cats too, because even the walls can radiate warmth, ensuring your cat an all-around source of heat as long as it stays in bed.
Look for a heated cat bed that allows you to wash and dry conveniently. This is important for cat hygiene, since sometimes, vacuuming the bed may not be enough. Also, the bed will need to dry immediately, to prevent fungus and mold growth. Look for beds where the heater can be removed or the fabric can be peeled off and thrown into the washer.
Most products come with one-year warranties. Be sure to ask what parts or service are included in the warranties before making your purchase.
Simple does it
Cats don’t appreciate too much frou-frou. We do, but what we think could be cute and stylish may mean a choking hazard to your cat. Worse, he might ingest it and cause a blockage in his intestines.
