Truffles' Guide to Heated Cat Beds


Hey everybody, it's Truffles! I don't know about where you live, but here in northern Vermont it has been downright *frigid* the last few weeks. While I love snuggling with Mommy in the winter, I can't tell you how much I miss laying in the bathroom window and enjoying the whiffies coming through the screen. I am definitely suffering from cabin fever...and I'm a housecat!!! There's just nothing to do but take a long winter's nap and dream about the warm, sunny days to come.

I am a connoisseur of comfort, particularly when it comes to cat beds. I have a snuggler bed, a few different donut beds, a kitty lounger, plus I enjoy quality time in Mommy's big girl bed. But recently while browsing Petsmart.com I discovered that Mommy has been hiding something from me...you can buy HEATED cat beds!!!

Today we're participating in the Keeping Pets Warm event hosted by Davinia and Indiana from Two Little Cavaliers (http://twolittlecavaliers.com) so I decided to highlight a few of my favorites here with the hope that Mommy will take a hint a buy me one! (And if she doesn't...I know where she keeps the credit cards.)


Obviously, I have a thing for leopard print. I think it goes just purr-fectly with my tortie colors.

Do you have a favorite? Or are you a lucky kitty who owns a heated cat bed???

  2. Wow Truffles, I didn't even know they made those types of beds! If we bought one I am afraid that Scooby Doo (chihuahua) would still the bed from Molly. BOL! I bet you do get cabin fever living in Vermont. I sure hope you at least have a bird feeder or something to bring the wildlife to your windows. I know I love the realistic pictures of staring out the window.
    Happy Monday!

  3. I am so unfancy and just made a heated cat bed by cutting a hole for the cord of a heating pad between the layers of a favorite bed. I am going to check out the window sill bed though. We have been wanting one of those and a warm one would be even better!

  6. We don't have heated beds although as Hannah sleeps next to Mum through the night she enjoys the warmth. While the radiators are on Lucy gets on the window sills above them and warms her paws there. Of course we both manage to get on Mum's knee for a warm too if she's sitting down reading or watching TV in the evening.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  7. These all look great. The mom once put a heating pad in one of our cushions and y'know what? We didn't use it! We must be crazy. MOL! She would like to get us a heated bed, but based on experience, we may not use it.

  11. Those all look great. We have heated throws ( human ones) that I bought at Target for $20, I keep them on low and they have a heating pad I keep on low and covered with a fleece blanket.

  13. Mom bought us a little cat house to go into and none of us, yeah Mom thought WHAT??? We do live in FL and although it gets cool and sometimes down to freezing we really have few days and nights like that. But up there in Vermont we think one of those beds would be a great idea for you Truffles.

  14. They make beds that are heated? MOUSES! I never knew... Only heated beds 'round here are ones recently vacated by a member of my fur-fam. Or even a chair recently vacated by a peep will do. I am SO GONNA tell my peeps about these.

    Purrs,

  17. When Autumn was old, she had a heated bed. It wasn’t a fancy electric one but one with a layer of insulation like aleuminum foil in it. It would reflect her body heat. TW threatens to use Reynold’s wrap in my bed. She’s always afraid of electromagnetic fields and cancer.
