I have 2 cats, different ages & different breeds. My tabby took a while to like BC, but now looks for it to be included with her soft food, and she loves it.! My Torti immediately feel in love with the BC and both their coats feel just like silk. Great stuff. I will keep this stocked for my pets and order this again!
Both my cats loved this from the first taste. I don't know if it's helping with vomiting or not. But I'm sure it's pretty good for them and they're both on the thin side, so I'm glad they are eating a little more.
Multiple times, i have found each of my kitties licking their bowls completely clean because they love their Barley Cat that much. it has been great for their overall health as well as less fleas and random vomiting.
My cats have grown to love Barley Cat even more than their actual food; often they'll just lick the green powder off of their dry food and leave the rest of it alone. Since they were all getting fat (no amount of food seemed to satisfy them), this has been a huge step in the right direction. Barley Cat seems to satisfy the vitamin cravings where nothing else could--I tried vitamin pills; supplements; changing foods; everything. I highly recommend this product...though do wish it came in larger amounts. 3 cats go through 3 ounces mighty quickly.
This is a great product for my indoor/outdoor cats, who especially appreciate its "green-y" aspect in the winter months. The rest of the year they enjoy it as a welcome treat (the chicken liver component). Hint: sprinkle just enough for the cat to scarf up at one sitting, on only a small area/few pieces of food, because it will not smell "fresh" after an hour or so.
This is one of the best purchases I've made in a LONG time. It heats right up and stays warm all nite. It is winter and even my little Petey got to go along on the walk as I put the snuggle safe in the stroller and he kept warm! Never too hot - always just right. I use it in the car, in the dog stroller, on the couch. Highly recommended. You can see my crew gravitates to it and snuggles warmly all nite!
This is the third set of snuggle safe warmers I have purchased. (They used to have a lable that gave an approximate replacement time of 2 years). They are GREAT. I have elder cats - 2 are 20 years old and they need warm places. Disc stay warm for 12 + hours placed under a couple layers of a blanket for comfort. My 'kids' love them and therefore 'Mom' does too
I purchased several SnuggleSafe's for the outdoor stray cats that I care for. I put them in their beds beneath the bedding and the cats love them. We also put them in the covered shelters and they radiate enough heat to keep several cats warm during cold evenings.
We have been using Snuggle Safe Microwave Heat Pad for infant/aged animals in our foster care. The pads provide a reliable and safe heat source all through the night. Traditional hot water bottles last only about 2-4 hours but Snuggle Safe provides over 6-8 hours of lasting warmth.
Snugglesafe is absolutely FANTASTIC! Anyone living in NJ knows what a brutal winter we've had. During our last major snow/ice storm a beautiful little stray cat showed up at my door, freezing cold and starving. As I'm already "owned" by 6 rescued cats I couldn't turn him away. After a week of "temporary housing" I realized he wasn't leaving so I built him a gorgeous insulated house (now the envy of my indoor kitties) and then proceeded to find a solution to keeping him warmer. While searching online I stumbled upon recommendations for the Snugglesafe and figured I'd try it out. What a blessing it turned out to be!! Shadow LOVES his Snugglesafe! The temps have dropped as low as 5 degrees since he's been here and still it kept him warm and happy. It's heartwarming to know a product so simple in nature can make such a difference to a poor little lost and forgotten animal. I highly recommend this product to everyone who loves their furry little friends!! Buy this product, make a difference, you'll feel great!
Folks that say these things hold heat for twelve hours must be high with an accompanying distorted view of the passage of time. I've microwaved according to instructions, and even incrementally exceeded the recommended time for our oven power. I will give you they are hot when the first come out, but most of the heat is gone inside of an hour. We've also not been able to get any of our four cats to lay on them. Too uncomfortable I guess, even after covering with towels to pad the warmer and even out the bottom of the basket. All in all a waste of eighty bucks (for three). I will see if SPCALA has any use for them. At least then I can write the cost off my taxes.
I originally bought one of these SnuggleSafe pads last year. A neighbor's cat likes to sleep on my front porch. Then my neighbor across the street got one for her outdoor cat. Then she got a second one to make a larger sleeping area for the cat. Intrigued, another neighbor got 2 for outdoor cats. Then two more. They are so great. 4-5 minutes in the microwave and they're good for 10 hours.
My outside kitty loves this microwave heat pad. I put it in her little house and she can't wait to get inside and snuggle down for the night. I would highly recommend this for any outside or cold-natured animals or those who suffer from arthritis.
My old arthritic dachshund loves this--she cuddles up to it even though it seems far from cuddly. I find her draped over it in all possible configurations, and have found her more than once with her cheek against it, smiling.
My 2 outdoor cats each have a cathouse on the back porch that includes a door and lots of blankets but I wanted something more to keep them warm, especially at night. Snugglesafe was the PERFECT answer! The product works great & stays warm for a long time. Great size for a cat or a small dog. Definitely worth the price for the added piece of mind that my cats will definitely be warm.
I have a colony of feral cats in the woods behind my apartment building that I feed and try to keep warm. I like Snuggle Safe because I can just whip it in the microwave and wrap it in a towel and not have to worry so much about the kitties freezing at night. It does hold the heat, too. I would definetly give it a try.
I have been warming this disk & placing it in my outdoor cat's house. She's not big on change, & hasn't figured it out yet. It's been the best solution for her I've found so far. I may pick up another one for my older cat with stiff hips.
I bought this product for my two outdoor kitties. It worked so well and they enjoyed it so much that I bought another so they each have one. Easy to use - just microwave the disk and place in flannel holder. The disk is hard, not really a pad, but they don't seem to mind. It stays warm for hours and there is no worry over wires or electricity. Love this product.
So far, so good. Depending on your pet, you can alternatively prop the heat pad against the back or arm of a chair/sofa so that if your cat doesn't want to lay on the hard surface, they can cuddle up to it as if they were cuddling next to another cat. I bought it mostly for RVing, but am trying it out now during the colder months in the house.
I use this for my outside cat's bed. He loves it. He is 11 years old and I have to go and wake him up in the mornings, he is so cozy with the Snuggle Safe Pad. Thank you!
Great item for the ferals. No cords to worry about or shutting off when temp is reached
Bought 2 of these for our barn cats. With temps going below zero at night I feel better knowing that the cats will be warm in their beds. The discs hold heat through the night. On cold days we reheat the discs so they have toasty beds all the time. Gives me peace of mind knowing the cats are warm,
This the third SnuggleSafe pad that I have purchased for my own cats and the cats/kittens I foster for a local shelter. They provide warm, safe comfort that I can count to help my cats for hours. No false advertising on these.
I found this product while I was searching for a warmer for my puppy. I ended up buying this for myself, it is an amazing product, works so well for the cold nights. My son likes it too, I am going to buy one for him. I got another benefit from this warmer, I used it in my car when I took my puppy to the vet or go for grooming, because it was cold last week. I am very happy to have it, it is a good buy.
Hi. I'm Carlton. My owner just bought me the SnuggleSafe Heat Pad. It keeps me warm in the cold winter months and even in the summer if the air conditioning is running. When home alone, I feel safer too than being around electric heaters that can burn me or catch fire. Any temperature under 70 degrees is dangerous to hedgies! I put my sleeping bag on top of this thing and snuggle inside for hours of warmth. For extra heat, I even crawl under the pad at times! Great for all hedgies or other pets living with people whom refuse to turn up the heat!
I purchased 2 of these 3 winters ago.The Goldens seek out the draftiest part of the floor, but my Lab enjoyed sleeping on my bed w/ the warm electric blanket beneath her. In old age she became frail I was afraid she would fall, so she had to sleep on the floor. I purchased 2 of these (because I didn't really think one could stay warm all night) and was pleasantly surprised when the SnuggleSafe did indeed stay warm ALL NIGHT! Towards her final days, when I was also sleeping on the floor at her side, I curled up around the other SnuggleSafe and it kept me warm too! They still work as well as the day I purchased them 3 years ago. Yes, I HIGHLY recommend this product. TIP--keep the cover ON when you microwave the disk as it gets very hot to handle uncovered. Just put a paper towel on the micro tray for sanitation and you're good to go.
I always enjoy doing business with this company. They are always very helpful on the phone and the few times when there was a problem, it was quickly remedied to my complete satisfaction. I always come here first to find products for my pets (3 cats) and I always recommend Entirely Pets to my friends and acquaintances.
Helps puppies sleep through the night! Especially great for a single puppy. You don't have to use space heaters to help keep them warm. I have bought at least six and give them away to shelters and new puppy families. They also make excellent foot warmers for cold nights. A friend uses it for her older small dog to stay warm.
I live on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. I provide food and water for some stray/outdoor/feral cats. On cold winter days, I place this heat pad under the water bowl in a hut on the deck. The water gets cold but it stays ice free for many hours.
I'm satisfied with the pet warmer. It is a somewhat hard disc that doesn't get much more than warm; however, it stays warm for 10 hours. It has provided a little extra heat through the winter for my kitty who sleeps in the garage at night (northern California winter that is).
Yes, this is my second "SnuggleSafe Microwave Heat Pad" and they are AWESOME. I have three cats - one without hair and they get cold during the day when we're at work and the heat is turned down. These things stay warm for 12 hours or more. My first heat pad is 3 years old, still going strong. Use them every day.
Very good product!It is very useful and a easy way to keep my cat warm.for 10 hrs.
I found this product when I was searching a warmer for my puppy, but I ordered this one for myself. It is so nice, easy to use, my son likes it too, I may order another one soon.
I loved the idea of this thing because my dog is in the car a lot and we're at a high altitude, cold temps. But so far he is not interested in this and avoids it. We'll see if he warms up to it (ha), sometimes it takes him a couple weeks to take interest in new toys etc. I love the idea of this product.
I purchased this for my little dog for in the car, when I take him, now that it is cold outside.. I am very pleased with it. It heats up in the microwave in less than 3 minutes and lasts a good 8 hour or more. Though it is for animals, I have used it also while sitting and watching tv. I put it under my legs. Keeps me very warm also.
The snuggle safe is perfect for keeping a tiny kitten cozy during the ride to vet, on a cold winter day, or just to keep it content through the night. I love the safe chew-proof plastic covering and the soft outer cover.
My recent purchase was to keep some recently abandoned cats warm in their beds. I can provide shelter in my garage, but it is unheated. The SnuggleSafe Heat Pad does the the trick! The covers are great, and I bought an extra so I can always have one ready.
Cats are outdoor cats. in a puffly fluffy cat bed in a sheltered area. They seemed to like lying on the covered heating pad. I put it between two thin towels. so I guess they liked it. Did not seem very warm though. I put it in an 800 watt microwave for six minutes and one minute resting in the microwaive; Hope I did it right.
Easy to use and works! Great for rabbits that stay outside.
My two, four month old Yorkies, required more than a blanket, at night, in Ohio winters. Hugs and Kisses watch me heat up this pet warmer in the microwave. When I remove the warmer from the microwave, they head for their crate for a comfortable nights sleep. The pet warmer is excellent in their car seat while traveling short or long distances. It even fits in their dog carrier during cold weather. Would not be without the pet warmer!
I loved the idea of no wires and no constant electric useage. One of my cats lives in the garage and this is PURRfect for him,, keeps him toasty all night long.
great product, it absolutely does hold the heat for a very long time, and my cats love it. :)
It is a great concept but the product is so hard, even with a blanket the cats won't sleep on it
I foster kittens for a rescue group and the snuggle safe is an essential part of keeping them warm when sleeping. It is also wonderful to put in your cat's bed if they have any issues with arthritis.
I purchased 2 snuggle safe microwave pads. One for my dog and one for friends dog. I was surprised the heating pad was so hard, my dog did not even want to sleep on it. After lots of padding, she finally started sleeping on it. It did heat well for about 15 times. Then it would heat but only last for about 3 hours, which makes it useless for keeping her warm throughout the night. I was very careful not to overheat or heat before cool. My friend experienced the same problem only hers lasted about 20 times.. A big waste of money!
I bought this heatpad for a feral cat that I have been caring for, as New York winters can be very harsh (he will not come into my house, even in the worst weather). After heating it, I put it under a thin, soft blanket on my doorstep, and he sleeps on it for most of the night. I do heat it slightly longer than recommended in the microwave, with no ill effect. It should be noted that the heatpad itself is very hard, so some cats may not find it comfortable to sleep on. However, putting it under a thin cozy blanket solves this problem, at least for my cat, who is not very fussy. I would recommend this product.
Great product for feral kitty who hangs out at my front door - i have one of those pet houses/sofas for her - put microfiber throw on top of it and slide microwave pad under throw and she sleeps there all nite ! Don't buy the extra cover - it doesn't make it any softer-
I purchased one Snuggle Safe for my older outdoor cat who has his bed in our garage. I heated it in my microwave for 7 minutes, put the cover on it, and took it to my cat's bed in the cold garage. I put the Snuggle Safe underneath one layer of a fleece blanket in our pets bed and checked it with my hand to see if I could feel any warmth. Wow! It actually worked great. My cat loved it and has quickly learned to recognize when his Snuggle Safe is being put in his bed! I place the Snuggle Safe in a leaning position up against the side of my cats bed. This way he can lay against it with his body instead of having to lay on it. It is quite hard and heavy so you might want to try placing it up against the side if your pet likes sleeping in a softer bed. I am going to buy two more because it stays warm for hours, is easy to clean, and is ready to use after a few minutes in the microwave. This is one of the most useful pet products I have purchased in a long time. I highly recommend the Snuggle Safe.
The pad kept my puppies warm all night and I didn't have to worry about them chewing an electrical cord.
We take care of a feral colony and have used these for a number of years....It is the best! Right now, our temps are between 10-15 at night and when we check the Snuggle Safe in the morning, it will still be warm.....I highly recommend this to any one that takes care of outside cats, it's wonderful.........
I take care of several feral cats and these disks are fantastic at keeping their bedding warm and cozy in the winter months. They stay warm for 10-12 hours and have literally been a lifesaver.
The products does hold heat pretty well but it is very hard
We love the Snuggle Safe discs; I'm typing in bed with three of them (for 2 people). We've given then to my mother, my partner's ex, and most recently our chiropractor. The ex persists in using it for her dogs; silly rabbit! Snuggle Safes are for PEOPLE, too!
Good product- disc holds heat for 12+ hours.
I am a moderator on Handicapped Pets.com and recently had a near tragedy with a Snuggle Safe. Please read the thread and see the photographs. After being a customer for nearly two years, I will never endanger my pets or my home again. http://handicappedpet.net/helppets/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15296&p=81714#p81714
I heat up the disc as per directions, leaving the soft fleece cover in place. I usually place it under one of my cats beds at night, and when I check it the next morning, it is still nice and warm :)
Bury this disc once heated in the microwave in between some plush blankets because it is very hard. Other than that it's a good spend. One of my cats took to it like a hen on her eggs!
The produced did not perform as promised. I read the instruction and heated it up according the microwave and the time. It never got hot just luke warm and it only stayed warm for maybe 15 to 30 min.
My senior cat loves it! I pop it in the microwave while getting ready for work for 4 minutes, then put it under her blanket in her catbed- she sits in it all the time! at first I thought it wasn't hot enough so put it right in the bed, until one time I saw her like hunched to the side off it so must feel much hotter when sitting on, so I stick it under the blanket. It does stay warm close to the 12 hrs, bc it says not to reheat when warm and I've gone to reheat it at about 10-12 hrs and it is still warm. Worth the buy!!
I love this and my chihuahua loves it too. It solves the problem of using an electrical heating device and worrying about my dog chewing on the device. It REALLY does stay warm for 8 hours plus.
This is a great product for keeping newborn puppies warm. I like the fact that it is non-toxic and I don't have to worry about it burning the puppies' skin. I would also use if for keeping older arthritic dogs warm and comfortable.
These "heating bricks" are a good product. The ten hours heating is a bit of an exaggeration, and a lot depends on ambient temps. On a cold night, I would not bet on 8 hours of warmth. We put them out in the feral shelters at about 11:30 at night to get them through the coldest part of the night, and take them in about 9am. If it is a cold day, we reheat them and put them back.
My dog is becoming less cold tolerant as she ages & this has been a great addition to her life. I use it in her crate on especially cold nights & in my van when she comes with me on cold days. I didn't want anything electrical.
Since I don't know how many Ws in my microwave, I can't determine how long I have to microwave it (according to the instructions, it is critical). It gets warm, but so far mine doesn't last for 8 hours of warmth. My cats weren't interested, maybe, it's hard in touch (w/cover)? But my objective is fullfilled which is to keep some warmth around them, so. Know your microwave!
I was a bit hesitant when purchasing this item but once I received and used it I'm SO glad I did. This is the perfect solution for keeping my hedgehog nice and toasty warm during the Fall/Winter in WI. It stays warm enough to suit her needs for a full 12 hours. It fits perfectly in her cage and the fleece cover protects her from getting too warm. The size of the disc is great, as it's only about 10" in diameter, so it can be used in a smaller cage yet still leave enough room for my hedgehog to retreat to cooler areas of her cage if needed. I would definitely recommend this product to friends/family.
I recently ordered the SnuggleSafe Microwave Heat Pad and promptly received it a few days later. I followed the directions on the box to warm it up, and then placed it under a blanket in the cat bed. I have an indoor cat, but I got this for an outdoor cat who has been staying on our porch. The heat pad provides the extra warmth for her to be more comfortable on these cold nights with lows in the 30s. The heat pad stays warm for about 10-12 hours.
I purchased the Snuggle Disc after reading so many positive reviews. A stray cat has adopted us and it has been so perfect to place in her bed outside. Really does stay warm for 10 hours!
I ordered two of the Snuggle Safe Microwave Heat Pad for Miss Priss and Chester. I read all the reviews and most were spot on. The disc is hard with a liquid core that holds heat for about 8 hours. The cats don't seem to mind that it is a hard "pillow". The curious kitties have no cord to chew and that in itself is selling point. Would highly recommend this product. It took them a few days to figure out that is was providing warmth but now they follow me to the microwave and wait for their buddy to finish cooking.
I wanted something that did not plug in so I'd feel comfortable leaving it while at work. This was it. I think my cat is still warming up to it. She often still sleeps on my DVD player but I think while I am at work she sometimes uses this now. If she does not use it more often I might take it to work for my own use because I am always so cold at work.
I was using a flax seed heating pad (the kind people use on their neck) and she loved it but being 20 years old, she does not always make it to the litter box. I didn't want to use an electric heating pad for obvious reasons. So this is a perfect solution. Easy to clean, safe and effective. And it really does stay warm for a REALLY long time. Really. I didn't believe it until I saw it. Worth every penny.
Works as described. Heat lasts for hours!
This is easy and safe to use. I would like it to be a little warmer. My cat seems to like it. When she's not interested, it warms my sheets and helps to warm my feet.
The Snuggle Safe Microwave Heat Pad is the best invention for cats. My formerly feral cat, Tommy, now lives in my garage. He loves to cuddle up with the Snuggle Safe in his cat bed. It keeps him warm all night with no wires to deal with. Just warm it in the microwave and it is ready for all day or all night warmth. I also purchased several for my inside cats as well. I highly recommend this safe, warm product.
This Snuggle Safe pet warmer is fantastic & so easy to use. It stays warm throughout the night to keep my babies warm as toast & they love it! Nothing to plug in, no cords to deal with, or too high a temp w/an auto shut off. I put it in the micro for 7mins & we're all ready to go for the night. Highly recommended from all my cats!
Two years ago a mother cat dropped two of her kittens off in our back yard. With the help of an organization called "Alley Cat Rescue" we trapped them and had them neutered and vaccinated. They now live in little houses in our back yard that are heated in the winter with 'snuggle Safe heat pads'. We are now halfway thru our third winter and they are doing great.
I ordered this last week to help keep my dachshund warm. She had surgery to repair her ruptured disc's last year and now it is important to keep her very warm in the winter. She loves is so today I ordered two more, one for each of her housemates! Thank you!!! http://www.petsnugglesacks.com
This is my second Snugglesafe. Stays warm for hours and hours. Keeps me AND my pets warm!
Works great in the house we have for a feral cat who lives in our yard.
Snuggle Safe Heating Pads are great! They work wonderfully in my whelping box. Puppies love to seek them out and snuggle up to them staying toasty warm. No cords to worry about. Also kept puppies warm when transporting puppies to the vet office and back home. Keep them close at hand, just great for any time you need warmth! Thanks for offering them at such a great price also.
i have used this product for eight ears EVERY day!!! in my 1000 watt microwave is is only 4:30... it finally failed and i am now happy to purchase another... my elderly yorkie and the outside cat are most pleased!!!!!!
Am buying this for my mother in law's outside cat. I have one and they are great, they really stay warm for 12 hours and our kitty kloves it even inside.
I bought this for an old dying cat. She loved it. After she passed, we gave it to another old cat.
My outdoor older beagle, Ginger, LOVES this warmer. She is getting older and has spinal problems, so she cannot be around my other dogs who she used to sleep with in their igloo doghouses. I purchased this disc; heat it up for 6 minutes in the microwave, put the disc cover over it that comes with it and place it under the blanket I have on top of her dog bed in the igloo doghouse. It stays warm all night long and keeps her comfy. She watches me put it in and immediately goes in her house to lay down on her warm blankie. I recommend this highly for outside dogs to place in their house when the weather is cold. And it DOES stay warm all night long. Thanks for a great product!
This is the best thing for keeping my outside kitty warm during long winter nights. She gets so excited when I put it in her little house and can't wait to jump inside and snuggle down for the night. What a fabulous invention! I wish every outside pet could have one.
I seem to have become the local crazy cat lady and constantly have cats showing up at my house. I bought one of these last winter and it is so great. The cats love it. I'm hoping to buy a couple more.
Bought the Snuggle Safe microwave heat pad and an extra cover for my small Chihauhau which has to stay in the car whenever I run errands. If I leave her at the apartment she howls till I come home. So I take her along and now with winter here I don't have to worry about her getting cold. She loves it.
The two I ordered work just like it stated in the description, my outdoor cats took to them immediately. I put them in both Kitty Tubes and it keeps it warm all night.
I was pleased to find this product. It works like it says and stays warm for hours! I needed to keep my extra small kitten warm. I would definitely recommend this product and will use it for years.
Product does stay really warm for HOURS, but it's so hard, it's difficult to place close to pet for comfort. Disc cannot be laid on directly due to discomfort of hardness. Something to consider. It does really keep the warmth in though.
The heating pads are great, because they don't require electrical wires (which, frankly make me nervous) and the warmth lasts for hours.
These microwave heating pads are wonderful for keeping newborn kittens warm during our Maine winters! They are so easy to heat up in the microwave and they stay warm for up to 10 hours! I put them under several towels or blankets well hidden so the kittens are far enough away from the pads and they still give out enough heat that the kittens are kept toasty warm! I love the product and think anyone with young kittens should have these on hand! They are a great help to anyone who breeds cats! Hermina
Stays warm for very long time. I bought two!
This product is great for keeping your lizard warm when taking him on a trip, it will keep the little guy warm at night or when there is cold weather.
I foster kittens for my local animal shelter. The snugglesafe disk warms in minutes and stays warm all day or all night. The generous size of the snugglesafe disk keeps a small pet bed full of kittens warm for hours. I warm the disk in its fleece cover and place it below the kittens bed to prevent accidental overheating of the kitten's skin.
We bought some of these in the 1990's. Over time, 4 of 5 have been permantently "borrowed". We got them for our chihuahuas, but our kids take the to football games. We've used them in parades.
We use these discs for very young orphaned kittens. The discs are so popular at the shelter, they tend to develop legs and we must re-order them frequently. Placing the disc underneath a comfy blanket in a cat carrier allows the kittens to snuggle comfortably on the disk, or they can choose to move to the side of it if they are too warm. A wonderful product.
