I have a large number of these heated mats for outdoor cats. I use them in a variety of shelters for feral cats. Aside from one incident (which was my fault), I have never had a problem with any of them. My ferals seem to be quite comfortable and warm during the winter.These have a wire-encased cord for safety, and the fleece cover is washable. The price on the one I just purchased was exceptional - the same item in PetSmart costs almost $10 more, if you can find it on sale, and up to $30 more for the regular price.
