Kitty Shack 2-in-1 Cat Mat is the cozy and warm 2-in-1 cat bed that traps unwanted hair. The Kitty Shack 2-in-1 Cat Mat converts from a tube bed into a full size mat in a second – just unzip! It also features a Thermo-Reflective Core that reflects your cat's body heat to keep your feline warm. As a mat, it can be used on the couch, the floor, your bed, or virtually any other flat surface that your cat may want to recline on. Kitty Shack is machine washable so it won't be hard for you to clean whenever it gets covered with hair and dander.When I initially agreed to review this mat, Baby Boy Morris was still with us. But between agreeing to review and the actual shipment, Morris passed away.
But, 2 weeks after Morris passed, we rescued/adopted Chase. I had no clue what to do with the Kitty Shack... it's made primarily for cats. Would he even use it?
^^Kitty Shack laying flat^^
^^Kitty Shack zipped^^
So, one day, I threw it down on the floor in the zipped up position. Chase was still small; I thought he could crawl into it and take his naps in it, especially in the winter, when the house was on the chilly side.
Chase wouldn't even go NEAR it while it was in the zipped up position. I then unzipped it and threw it on the floor in the flat position and threw a few of his toys on it. He LOVED it. He would lay on the mat for HOURS, playing with his chew toys and napping. We even took it outside and laid it on the concrete porch for when he was outside, so he wasn't laying on the hard concrete.
Sadly, Chase is a little destroyer, and he ended up chewing a hole through it, so we ended up tossing it out at the end of 2016.
It washes very easily, just throw it into the washer and dryer, and it's clean and fresh.
The only problem I see disabled people having with this is zipping it up into the 'triangle' position. It zips just like a coat would, with having to 'lock' the ends together. it zipping a coat is a problem for you, you'll have a problem zipping this as well.
This is available from Amazon for $23.70.
I think most animals would enjoy this more unzipped and flat than zipped up.
WOULD RECOMMEND: Yes
