It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, whether it’s cold out or not, Pierre’s feels better when he has some extra heat. And let’s face it, sunbeams can be hard to find. What he needs is his own little patch of sunshine no matter what time of day it is. So when our friends at Art of Paws asked if he would like to try one of their heated mats, Pierre said he was the cat for the job.
The Art of Paws heated pet mat is about two inches thick, and unfolding it from the box, I found it had a nice, removable cover that will make cleaning easy. The cord, which has a protective cover to prevent chewing, extends through the cover at one end, and an inline switch so you can turn the mat on and off. The covered cord connects to the shorter cord attached to a little power brick, and the power brick, of course, plugs into an outlet.
I really liked that the whole cord assembly was over six feet long, so I was able to put the mat just about anywhere I wanted instead of having to be really close to an outlet. Setup is easy and common sense, no manual needed.
Once the mat was set up, it took no time at all for Pierre to find his little patch of sunbeam-like warmth. I’m not sure exactly where Pierre’s arthritis is, but there was room on the Art of Paws heated pet mat to warm all of him so he’s sure to get comfort from it. The mat so big that you could fit two of him on it when he is curled up. Or he can sprawl across it and really soak in every inch of its warmth.
The Art of Paws heated pet mat proved so popular that it when Pierre wandered off to use the litter box, a line formed to use it. Newton claimed it, and he immediately spread out to absorb the warmth.
There was still a little bit of space left on the Art of Paws heated pet mat, even with him spread out, and Cupcake saw her chance to get some of that warmth. She stepped onto the mat right next to Newton, but Newton made it clear he wasn’t in a sharing mood.
Cupcake decided she would wait in line for her turn. Getting a chance to hang out on the heated pet mat would be totally worth it!
