Mod Thermo-Kitty Shelter

* Required Fields




Simply stated, there's nothing else on the market like the K&H Mod Thermo Kitty Shelter. Its combination of modern colors, simple zip-together design, rigid exterior, and internal heating pad make it an outstanding value for anyone caring for outdoor cats. Use it to keep cats warm in a barn, shed, porch, garage, under a deck or anywhere extreme temperatures exist. It's a modern cat house unlike anything you've ever seen.

Zip-Together Assembly

We put a great deal of thought into the design of our Mod products, and the Mod Thermo-Kitty Shelter is no exception. You'll appreciate the simple assembly with a clean, zip-together design that's sure to impress everyone who sees it.

Small Animal Heated Pad

The K&H Mod Thermo-Kitty Shelter includes a Small Animal Heated Pad for warmth and comfort. Pre-set internal thermostats automatically monitor the surface temperature to keep kitties cozy and safe.

K&H outdoor pads are designed to warm to your pet's normal body temperature of 102°F when he/she lies on the pad. When your pet is not on the pad, the heat will dissipate into the air and the surface temperature will vary according to the ambient air temperature.

Plug in the Small Animal Heated Pad and it will automatically warm on its own. There is no on/off switch to worry about and the pad will never exceed a cat's natural body temperature. And with the pad covering half the floor, your cat can choose whether to be on or off the warm area.

This unique heating pad features tough ABS plastic, water-resistance, thermostatic controls, a washable fleece cover, a 5.5 foot steel-wrapped cord (18" are also steel-capped), and an MET safety listing.

Front Door Flap

We include a 7" circle door flap with every K&H Mod Thermo-Kitty Shelter. Its clear plastic provides an added layer of protection while allowing cats to see outside. The flap adheres to the inside of the shelter with hook & loop material and cats can push their way through it easily.

Low Power Consumption

The included K&H Small Animal Heated Pad consumes a miniscule 25 watts of electricity––less than many light bulbs. With this high level of efficiency, you can care for your outdoor kitties and still keep energy costs low.

Tough Exterior

600 denier nylon provides water-resistance and durability. You'll be amazed at how the fashionable design of the Mod Thermo-Kitty Shelter also stands up to rain, snow, and harsh weather conditions.

Important Safeguards:

  • Consult your veterinarian before use with young puppies/kittens, convalescent pets, during surgery/surgery recovery, or any animal that cannot voluntarily remove themselves from the heated pad. K&H recommends using ONLY the Deluxe Lectro-Kennel Heated Pad for these animals as this pad has an adjustable thermostat.
  • Do not place pad in confined area where the pet does not have the ability to remove themselves from the pad. Always allow your pet enough space to be able choose if they want to rest on the pad or off the pad.

General Questions about Outdoor Heated Beds

What temperature will an outdoor heated bed or pad reach?

K&H outdoor beds and pads are designed to warm to your pet's normal body temperature of 102°F when he/she lies on the bed or pad. When your pet is not on the bed or pad, the heat will dissipate into the air and the surface temperature will vary according to the ambient air temperature.

Are your heated beds and pads pressure sensitive?

Our beds and pads are NOT pressure sensitive. All K&H heated beds and pads feature dual thermostats and are designed to warm to your pet's normal body temperature when he/she lies on the pad. This is a function of the insulation provided by a pet’s body, not the weight of the pet.

K&H beds and pads will emit heat anytime they are plugged in so your pet can sense that heat and be drawn to the bed or pad for warmth and comfort. When your pet is not on the pad, the heat will dissipate into the air and the surface temperature will vary according to the ambient air temperature.

How long is the cord?

The cord is 5.5 feet long.

Can I use an extension cord with this product?

MET requires that all manufacturers put the extension cord statement “Do not use with extension cord” on every item that is MET listed by UL 499 standards. This is because they cannot test every extension cord on the market in conjunction with our products for safety. Also, MET suggests that an extension cord is not recommended as a permanent fixture and should only be a temporary solution when using any electrical product.

Temporary use of a UL listed cord is fine, but consult your electrician for the proper cord for your application. For more information on MET safety testing, please visit their website at

How long can a heated bed or pad be plugged in?

MET Safety Laboratories suggests unplugging the bed if you leave your home on an extended vacation, as they do with any electrical appliance. Otherwise, it is designed for 24/7 operation and you can leave it plugged in all day. This item has been certified by MET labs to adhere to strict electrical safety standards. For more information, please visit

Is there an off/on switch?

There is not an off/on switch. The pad is always on when plugged in.

Is placing an additional blanket or towel on top of the heated bed or pad recommended?

You never want to place anything on top of a K&H outdoor bed or pad other than the cover provided. This cover allows the warmth to go through whereas a blanket or any other cover will trap the heat inside the bed or pad, possibly causing a malfunction.

Can you place an outdoor heated bed or pad on top of another pet bed or blanket for extra cushioning?

Outdoor heated pet beds and pads should be placed on a flat, stable surface rather than on top of a bed or blanket.

Are K&H outdoor heated beds and pads waterproof?

Our outdoor heated beds and pads are water-resistant. We understand that pets collect snow and water from being outdoors. Our products are designed to be used safely with pets, even when the pet is water-soaked.

Please make sure to place the bed or pad in a relatively dry area such as a covered porch, garage, kennel or dog house. The bed or pad should not be placed where there is a potential for standing water from heavy rain and the product should not be immersed in water.

Is it safe to use this without the cover?

Yes, you can use K&H outdoor heated beds and pads with or without the included cover.

For a garage, would you advise an indoor or outdoor heated product?

For a garage, we recommend an outdoor heated product. They have the features necessary to ensure your pet stays warm in even the coldest of temperatures.
