Keep Cats Warmer with Snuggle Safe Heating Pad

Keeping the outdoor cats warm in winter can be challenging if your winter months are bitter cold.  I take care of the outdoor cats with KH outdoor heated cat houses.

I also have handmade wooden insulated cat houses that are overstuffed with straw.  The straw is a natural way to provide insulation however when the temperature dips into the single digits I am always worried about the cats

Today I found a product online that will add extra warmth to the straw cat beds without the use of electricity.  The Snuggle Safe Pet Bed Microwave Heating Pad is warmed in your microwave and will keep your outdoor cats bed warm for up to ten hours.

While I like the product, I never buy without checking it out and so I called one of the cat caregivers to ask if they heard of this heat pad.  Sure enough one of girls had bought the snuggle safe pet bed microwave heating pad and told me to buy it.

Features and Benefits:

  1. The heating pad is small in size but that does not mean that it is less effective.  Once it is heated in your microwave the snuggle safe heating pad will keep your outdoor cat house warmer in winter.
  2. For best results, heat the pad in your microwave and then set it underneath the straw in the corner of the outdoor cat shelter so that the cat does not lie directly on top of it.  The cat then can move closer to the heat if there is a chill in the house or they can lie on straw that is not heated by the pad.
  3. Another way to use the heated pad is for cat beds in the garage or on an unheated porch.  Put the pad under a fleece blanket and the cat will snuggle up to the heat and stay warm for ten hours.
  4. The Snuggle Safe Pet Bed Microwave Heating Pad is  inexpensive, easy to use, and will keep cats warm
