Anyone who owns cats knows they are finicky. I have purchased beds, sacks, kitty condos, and cushions in the past. With few exceptions, they have been rejected by one or both of my brood. One of my two cats is almost 19 and she had been seeking extra warmth by curling up on a heating vent. Because of these reasons, only 1 of these was purchased at first. This was a mistake, since there were almost fights to get in the heated bed. I quickly had to purchase another to make everyone happy. Now both cats have made these beds their sleeping place of choice at night, even over sleeping with us. It seems the very low wattage heats the bed perfectly for them and keeps them happy. Buying a heated bed was somewhat of a concern, since I worried that it might burn the cat. Since 4 watts seemed extremely low, I decided to try it and it works perfectly. The bed is barely warm to the touch if not covered and feels comfortably warm after a cat has just slept there. No hot spots were noted. After several weeks of use, I can highly recommend this bed. One note, both of my cats are smaller than normal at only 6 lbs, so this size is perfect for them. A larger version would be suggested for larger cats.

Love - repurchased
By A. Alexander
This is our second time purchasing this bed for our 16yo cat - after using her previous one for over 2 years, the foam padding inside was pretty flattened not very cozy anymore. Our cat doesn't like to lay on really padded things like pillows or blankets, and this bed is not too squishy for her. She is about 8 lbs and fits comfortably in the bed. In the winter we keep the bed plugged in most of the time, but will make sure to unplug for a few hours a day so she doesn't get dehydrated from being on it for too long. Kitty loves to sleep in the bed even when it's unplugged!

World's most evil cat has found love
My cat, who is the Master Hater of All Things in the Universe, loves this bed. It's good for her to finally know love in her old age. The bed does stay surprisingly warm even when the cat is not in it. I thought it would shut off completely when no weight was in the bed, but it is pretty warm, especially on the underside. I haven't been too concerned about it, though. I've washed the cover once and it was easy to get on and off. My cat weighs about 6.5 pounds and she nearly fills up the bed (though she be but tiny, she is fierce). If you have a large cat, you might want to look for something bigger.
