Make a Cat a Bed Warmer

Every cat needs a bed warmer for cold weather if it is an outdoor cat. Your cat has probably already made a cozy spot to stay out of the wind and snow, but when the weather gets about zero, even that is not enough.

Your cat can have a bed warmer just like a heating pad with very little effort on your part. It takes a sock and some rice, and maybe a couple of seams on your sewing machine.

Over time, the rice tends to break up and can come through a loose weave, so choose a sock with a tight weave or make a bag to fit inside the sock. Your cat can be a fat cat with a bed warmer or heater. Just put the rice in the sock and sew it closed. We use about a cup of uncooked rice. When you are ready to warm the bed warmer, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. Wrap it in a towel and put it in the cat's bed, especially if it stays outside in the winter.

Your cat will thank you for your cleverness and crafting ability.

Have a great week!
