Our Verdict

The PetKit Cozy smart bed is the ultimate sleek and stylish way of keeping your pet comfortable when it’s too cold or scorching hot, and you can even control it with an app.

For

  • Super stylish design
  • Seven temperature settings
  • App controlled

Against

  • Some pets prefer an old-fashioned basket

The PetKit Cozy smart bed may look like it has landed in your front room fresh from another planet, but it’s simply a hi-tech take on the traditional basket. With an enclosed top for security and seven temperatures to choose from, it’s designed to make pets feel safe and extra cosy. If only there was a version for owners too.

PetKit Cozy smart bed: Features

It’s fair to say that the PetKit Cozy smart bed may look out of place in a traditionally-decorated home, but for those who like their décor modern and their tech hi, it’s quite a style statement. Measuring approximately 43cm in diameter, the spherical bed is perfect for a cat or dinky doggie with a taste for the finer things in life.

The sleek design doesn’t just look good – its shape provides a clever cocoon for small to medium-sized pets to comfortably curl up inside, so you might get the use of your washing basket/fruit bowl/sink back. There’s even a round, fluffy mat so they can snuggle up, although some discerning owners – and their pets – think it’s not quite soft enough. Whatever your pet’s preference, the internal pad is removable, reversible and can be wiped clean just like all the plastic parts.

Infrared sensors within the Cozy bed accurately monitor the time your pet spends within it, and data is shown on the accompanying phone app. This data is used to generate a sleeping calendar to make sure your pet is getting the best shut-eye, and let’s be honest – it’s just interesting to see what they get up to while you’re at work.

The app can also be used to adjust the gadget’s temperature via a Wi-Fi connection. In fact, there are an impressive seven temperatures to choose from, ranging from warm to cool, so you can make sure your precious pet keeps cosy in the winter and doesn’t overheat in the summer months. An internal heat and cool induction plate, changes the temperature quickly and evenly. 

A fluid engineering duct ensures the bed runs very quietly, which is particularly important if it’s going to stay in your bedroom, to make sure your pet’s (and your) slumber is uninterrupted.

PetKit Cozy smart bed: User reviews

The vast majority of customers say the PetKit Cozy smart bed is expensive, but worth it. Most owners praise the quality of its materials and construction and say it is easy to plug in and set up, plus many say the app is easy to use too. 

The only point where this seems to consistently fall down is the plushness of the internal mat, which a lot of customers say to too thin for their cat to get comfortable. 

Another potential pitfall is that the product is often described as being suitable for small or medium-sized pets. Most users agree that only the smallest of dog breeds can be accommodated in the swanky igloo, unless they are adept at yoga!

But the smart bed is a particularly big hit among owners of old or particularly furry pets that can struggle to get comfortable when it’s a little too hot or cold outside. “My cat is a fluffy Persian, so it’s very beneficial for him. On cold days you can set it warmer too, which will be great in winter,” says one customer.

The only problem you may have, if you take the plunge in buying the smart bed, is feline jealously, which as one user found, can prove expensive. She writes: “Bought for 17 year old cat who loves sleeping in warm places. He sleeps in it a lot as it's so warm. My other cat was jealous so I bought another.”

Should you buy the PetKit Cozy smart bed?

If you have a permanently chilly chinchilla or a Himalayan puss that tends to overheat in the summer, the PetKit Cozy smart bed is a great buy. This purchase is all about pampering your pet and having fun with a new gadget to boot. While it’s a lot more expensive than a basket, it gives you tonnes of options to keep your pet comfortable and even looks sleek and stylish, which is relatively unusual for a pet product. We think it makes a pur-leasing addition to any cat (or dinky dog’s) home.
