The K&H Thermo-Kitty Mat is an affordable heated sleeping mat with a dual thermostat heater buried beneath soft foam to make a comfortable napping place for cats. The surface temperature of the K&H Thermo-Kitty Mat will remain 10-15 degrees above ambient air temperature when not in use by the pet. The product is designed such that the surface will only warm to full temperature when the pet is on the mat. As a simple test, you may place a pillow on top of the K&H Thermo-Kitty Mat – after about 15 minutes the under-side of the pillow should feel warm, but not hot. This is the warmth that your pet will feel when lying on the K&H Thermo-Kitty Mat.
The Secret Behind It All
The secret to this pet bed is its surface which will remain at 12 to 15 degrees above the ambient air temperature. As you pet lays down on it, it begins to warm to the animal’s normal body temperature making for a happy kitty or dog.
How to Test Your K&H Thermo-Kitty Mat
You can test your K&H Thermo-Kitty Mat by placing a large pillow on top of it. After about 20 minutes, feel under the pillow. It will feel warm, not hot. Do not use an extension cord during this test.
The surface of the bed will be about 15°F above ambient air temperature until the pet lies on the bed. Then it will warm to about 102°F, which is the natural body temperature of dogs and cats.
Care Instructions: Unplug and remove the internal Pet Bed Warmer. Remove the cover and wash it on the gentle cycle with cold water. Line dry or use the no-heat cycle on your dryer.
