Heated Option

We offer a heated and unheated version of the K&H Outdoor Kitty House to meet the various needs of our customers. The heated model includes our small 14" x 18" Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed while the unheated model does not come with a bed.

The patented Lectro-Soft is the market's only soft outdoor heated pet bed and made of a water-resistant PVC material. It features thermostatic controls, a washable fleece cover, a 5.5 foot steel-wrapped cord, and an MET safety listing.

Also included with the heated model are 2 door flaps. Hook & loop material is sewn above the doors of the heated model to simplify flap installation.

Thoughtful Construction

While the Outdoor Kitty House is lightweight and easy to assemble, it's also strong. A unique design and water-resistant 600 denier nylon allow it to withstand snow and help protect cats from brutal winter weather. The zip-on roof hangs over the 2 doors to keep cats warm, safe and dry.

Front and rear door door flaps on the heated model provide added shelter while allowing cats to enter and exit the house. These lightweight, clear flaps attach to the inside of the house and can be pushed open easily.

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.

Care & Instructions

Cleaning Instructions

Wash the faux fleece cover on the gentle cycle with cold water, then line dry.

The heated bed can be cleaned using a damp towel or sponge and mild dish washing detergent. DO NOT wash in a washing machine.

To clean the house, wipe with a damp cloth.

Testing Your Lectro-Soft (Heated Model Only)

You can test the Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed by placing a large pillow on top of it. After about 20 minutes, feel under the pillow. It will feel warm, not hot. DO NOT use an extension cord during this test. DO NOT place anything on the pad (other than the fleece cover provided) any other time. This should only be done during testing.

Product Q&A

Product-Specific Questions

What is the difference between the unheated and heated versions?

The heated version includes our small 14" x 18" Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed while the unheated version does not.

The heated version also comes with door flaps and hook & loop material sewn above the doors so you can attach the flaps easily.

What are the walls made of?

The walls are made of 600 denier nylon with a vinyl backing that makes them waterproof and capable of withstanding snow.

How do the door flaps attach?

The door flaps adhere to the inside of the frame with hook & loop material. Cats can push their way through the door flaps easily since they're not heavy.

How many adult cats fit inside?

This will depend on the size of your cats. The sleeping surface area for this product is 14" x 18". For multiple cats, we recommend our Outdoor Multi-Kitty A-Frame, which has a sleeping surface of 19" x 24".

What size are the door openings?

The door openings are 6" wide by 8" high.

What is the interior height of the Outdoor Kitty House?

The interior height is 15” at its highest point.

Can I purchase just the 20 watt heating pad that goes inside the Outdoor Heated Kitty House?

Yes, you can. You will want to purchase the small size Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed.

Do you make a larger heated cat house?

For additional room, please consider the Outdoor Multi-Kitty A-Frame. This item has the same features as the Outdoor Kitty House, but it's larger. While the heated Outdoor Kitty House uses our small 14" x 18" Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed, the heated A-Frame uses the medium 19" x 24" Lectro-Soft Outdoor Heated Bed.

General Questions about Outdoor Heated Products

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 www.metlabs.com.

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 www.metlabs.com.

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.
