This is like if someone was reading your cat’s diary of hopes and dreams and made them a reality. It’s just big enough for your cat to fit inside. It is made top and bottom of heavy duty formed felt (think a really well made hat), and has a velour poof cushion bed that has the heating pad / elements inside it. There’s a cord that is reinforced with metal tubing like a pull out sprayer cord in a kitchen sink so your cat won’t be tempted to chew on the power cord.
Assembly is putting the pillow heating pad down, zipping the top and bottom pieces together via zipper, and plugging it in. That’s it - fool proof. There’s even a notch in the back to let you know where to run the cord out. The remote has a power button, a temperature button, and a timer button, and a display to show you what you have selected.
The inside gets warm quickly because the heated pillow warms up fast and also because the small felt egg shape cave inside radiates the heat back to the cat.
The whole thing is very very well made and was clearly designed with the safety and comfort of your cat in mind. That’s all well and good, but this product might be TOO GOOD. What about my comfort? Once my cats get a taste of this I don’t think they’re ever coming back to my lap. Great product, but beware the law of unintended consequences. If your cat only tolerates you to use you for your body heat this might not be for you. If you’re a glutton for punishment like me, you’ll give this to your cats because you love them more than is reasonable. I highly recommend this! It’s frankly genius.
