The actual plastic pad heats through well but does not hold its heat for nearly as long as claimed - I think the best I have had is around 4-5 hours. The pad itself is quite heavy but does the job required. However, the material sleeve you use for it is very poor quality and has only a flimsy velcro sticker holding it shut which doesn't work with such a heavy pad, and the pad gets so hot that you really need some sort of sleeve so I ended up wrapping the pad in a towel instead. Ultimately it is not great value for money.
My little dog sleeps in a fluffy donut bed so I was hoping we could put this under the middle if it, which is not thick. I heat it for the correct time for my microwave but it is certainly not hot enough to need oven gloves! It's warm but not hot. It stays warm for about 4 hours. If I put it under the bed you can't feel any warmth at all and anyone having one of these beds knows it is not much thicker than a folded blanket in the middle. So, it will useless and we so wanted it to work as we have cold stone floors. We live in Spain and it does get very cold in the middle if winter at night, but we have limited heating.
If I send it back it will cost a fortune as it is heavy, so we will use it to just warm her bed inside before she gets in. I wouldn't recommend at all as it does not really deliver what it says it should.
This product holds the heat really well, through most of the night, but my little poodle doesn't like to lie on it because it is too hard. I have tried putting it under her padded bed and blanket, but she avoids that corner. It is as hard as a rock. I guess I was expecting something softer.
Brought this for rabbit, heated in the microwave for recommended time for day - didn’t really feel warm on taking out the microwave and barely stayed warm for 2 hours. Tried again tonight with a minute longer, still wasn’t particularly warmer and lasted 3 hours. Made myself a hot water bottle at the time time which lasted 5 hours. Very disappointed after the suggested 10 hours of warmth. Whilst I thought that was a little over ambitious was hoping it would be able to achieve at least half that time. Wouldn’t purchase again
It does what it says. Stays warm for hours but I thought once it was microwaved that the pad would become softer. But no it is solid so my cats were not showing any interest to sit on it despite being lovely and warm. Can't imagine it would be comfortable
Although this heats up just as described in the microwave, and holds its heat, the fact that is that this unyielding thick chunk of plastic is just too darned uncomfortable to place where my cat Benny sleeps.
It's not so huge that it would fill the base of his bed, nor so flat he wouldn't notice. If it were flexible it would help but this really is a solid lump.
So I have tried it and may use it if he needs extra warmth by placing it under his bed and a few blankets to make it softer, but in the meantime is stays on the cat shelf. A pity.
Bought this for my cat & she doesn't use it. I know it could be preference, however it's completely rock solid, so it can't be moulded under something comfy, it's a lot smaller than what I thought too. Hold heat well though. Wouldn't recommend for a cat.
I love the idea of this and our cat has sat on it a couple of times but it takes ages to heat up and it's rock solid. I was expecting a soft pad, it's like a solid plastic disc. Okay but just not what I expected and not used much by our cat!
