- Super stylish design
- Seven temperature settings
- App controlled
- Some pets prefer an old-fashioned basket
For the perfect blend of style and substance, look no further than the PetKit Cozy smart bed which packs an impressive array of features into a seriously cool futuristic design.
When it comes to the best heated pet beds, this one from PetKit makes our list every time. We love its clean white spherical design, which will blend beautifully into the modern home, and its high-tech features, including smart temperature controls, make it well worth the money.
Cooling as well as heating, the PetKit Cozy smart bed will even track how long your kitty or canine companion spends inside it and then use that data to generate a sleep calendar so you can see how much shuteye your furbaby is getting and what temperature suits them best.
Granted, it’s an expensive option compared to other beds on the market, so with that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the PetKit Cozy smart bed and see if it’s worthy of a spot in your home.
PetKit Cozy smart bed: Features
The PetKit Cozy smart bed will make a distinctly modern style statement in any home. With an approximate diameter of 43cm, this sleek, spherical hi-tech plastic cocoon is perfect for housing small dogs and cats who enjoy being pampered. The controllable warmth it provides may even mean you get to free your washing basket or sun-soaked chair from your four-legged friends.
It comes with a round fluffy mat to snuggle up on, although some users have mentioned it’s not soft enough to totally delight their pets. On the plus side, this pad is removable, can be reversed to save on cleaning, and, when you do come to clean it, it can be wiped free of fur and dirt as easily as the plastic surround.
You’ll know how much time your cat or canine companion is spending in it thanks to its infrared sensors, which send the data to the accompanying phone app. Presented as a sleeping calendar you can easily monitor the time they spend snoozing and see if they are getting enough shut-eye. It also means you get some insight into the otherwise mysterious ways they are spending their time while you are out of the house.
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.
