The Kitty Tube *SAFE* Low Voltage Outdoor Electric Heating Pad | Free Shipping
|Expected release date is 5th Dec 2017|
The Kitty Tube “SAFE” Low Voltage Outdoor Electric Heating Pad with Fleece Cover AND FREE SHIPPING.
Please note: The safe low voltage heater will work either on top of or below the straw or pillow in your Kitty Tube. It produces a temperature that might not be obvious to the touch as it is only 102/104 deg. F. If you are not sure this is warm to your cat, try sitting on the heating pad for a short time, and you will see how nice the heat is! (102/104 deg. F is the maximum allowable heat for cats. )
This is the most technologically advanced heater available for your pet, and this new design is only available from Kitty Tube. This new heater design incorporates a completely sealed heating element that won’t break or burn out. Unlike most heaters with a wire element, this element is permanently and hermetically sealed between 2 durable layers of PE film. This heater is of a “SAFE” design as there is no high voltage power inside the Kitty Tube. This design eliminates the risk of fire or electrocution to your pet. Along with re-designing the heater, we also improved the plug in adapter so it fits ALL outdoor outlets. This heater is 15” diameter, and will be approximately 102 to 104 degrees F. This is the maximum allowable safe temperature for cats.
- 12 month replacement warranty!!
- Safe low voltage design virtually eliminates the risk of electrocution and/or fire in the Kitty Tube.

I have 3
Posted by Barbara Hunter on 10th Nov 2017
I can't say enough about kittytube. They are so easy to assemble. The shipping was fast. They are easy to clean. And now a word from the ferals......."We think they are warm and cozy on the coldest of winter nights. A couple of buddies will fit into one tube., The heater is great and it doesn't run up our persons electric bill. We really like the pillow. Oh, so comfy. Now back to my person.
I would like to make a suggestion. The pillows are great but need a few snaps or a zipper so the outside can be washed separate from the inner fluff.
How about an optional double pained window so I can check to see if the tube is empty before cleaning or sometimes I just want to check on an injured cat.
Thanks for making a great product. Oh and how about a SALE????
Next Best Option to Being an Indoor Cat
Posted by Cat Lovers in Kansas City on 24th Dec 2016
We "adopted" a TNR neutered male cat that showed up in our back yard in May 2016, and wanted to provide a winter shelter for him. We looked at lots of cat house options via the web and decided on a Kitty Tube. We ordered the Gen 3 Kitty Tube with 2 layers of insulation and straw. We received the Kitty Tube in late October 2016, but our cat didn't seem interested in going inside the Kitty Tube until the temperature started to drop in mid-November, and then he decided it was a nice place to sleep. I was curious about the air temperature inside the Kitty Tube versus the ambient outside air temperature, so I placed a temperature sensor inside the Tube (between the straw and side insulation, about 90 degrees from the doorway) in addition to an outside sensor I already had set up. Both sensors feed a wireless monitor inside my home. I found that the temperature inside the tube was only 3 or 4 degrees higher than the outside temperature. I expected the difference in temperatures would be higher than this. Then in early December 2016, we ordered a Kitty Tube “SAFE” Low Voltage Outdoor Electric Heating Pad, to see if the temperature inside the Kitty Tube would increase. The temperature inside the Kitty Tube with the heating pad in place is about 5 or 6 degrees higher than the outside ambient temperature – not as high as we had hoped for or expected, but better than without the heating pad.
I asked Jim Bradac (Kitty Tube inventor, founder, and president) about this, and he indicated that the cat should be warmed by contact with the heating pad, but that the heating pad was not intended to heat the air inside the Kitty Tube. Our cat’s “tummy” does feel warm to the touch when he first comes out of the Kitty Tube, but the fur on his back feels cool/cold. If I understood Jim correctly, sometime in 2017 he may offer a heating system that will have a warming effect on the air inside the Kitty Tube.
I think the current heating pad certainly keeps our cat warmer than not having one. Maybe our cat feels perfectly warm, but I would have been more confident of that if the air temperature inside the Kitty Tube were higher. Incidentally, we put a pretty thick layer of straw on the bottom of the tube, and around the sides, and our cat rearranged the straw so that there is almost no straw on the bottom (so he lies almost directly on the fleece cover of the heating pad).
We built a platform that is 24 inches above ground and has 3 enclosed sides plus a roof and placed the Kitty Tube on this platform. We read that cats feel safer being elevated above ground level, and thought that having the Kitty Tube inside this partially enclosed platform would be effective in blocking the wind and discouraging predators. To further reveal what fanatics we are, we even have a webcam set up so that we can determine when our cat is inside the Kitty Tube, since we can’t see the Kitty Tube from inside our home due to the 3-sided enclosure!
In really cold weather, we move the Kitty Tube into our garage. For example, we had a 3-day period last week with low temps below zero degrees Fahrenheit, and highs of about 10 degrees. The ambient temperature in our garage did not go below 35 degrees. Our cat seemed to have no hesitation in using the Kitty Tube inside our garage.
Overall, we think the Kitty Tube is a great product, and surely makes our TNR cat much more comfortable in cold weather than any other outdoor cat house that we found or could have made ourselves. So overall we are very pleased with the product and with the courteous and prompt service that we have received from Jim and his staff. It’s great that they are receptive to customer suggestions, and are continually making improvements as they gain experience with the product.
One other item I want to mention is that the ceiling insulation disks (both the one that comes with the single layer of insulation and the one that comes with the second layer of insulation) were “bowed” (ie, did not lie flat) when we received our Kitty Tube. Jim Bradac told us that it would be fine to bend the insulation disks the opposite direction of the bowing to try and flatten the insulation disks so they would more nearly lie flat. Jim said we could not damage the ceiling insulation disks by bending them. We tried this and it worked quite well – after bending the disks in the opposite direction of the bowing several times, the disks now lie almost flat.
Kitty Tube Safe Low Voltage Heating Pad
Posted by Mary Frances Lawler on 28th Sep 2016
Just received 3 of the Kitty Tube heating pads. Our 2 rescue cats Gracie and Lucie love snuggling on the pad. They are both indoor cats. Gracie has had the original pad for 2 years now. She likes to snuggle in 2 places so we got one of the new pads for her. And one of the pads is going to our rescue bunny, Coco, also an indoor pet. She likes to snuggle on hers with her little cardboard cave over her. They are great. And the company stands behind its product. One of the original pads had just stopped working and Kitty Tube replaced it at no charge. You don't get that kind of customer service anymore. They are great!
Heated Pad for Kitty Tube
Posted by Jeanne on 26th Jan 2016
My feral kitty loves her Kitty Tube bed and the warming pad. When the warming pad that I purchased last winter stopped heating, she wasn't happy. It was still under warranty and I received a speedy replacement from Kitty Tube. I love their products and excellent customer service.

Being a multi-trade technician and general nerd, good engineering is highly important to me with any product I am evaluating to buy.
I've been through the gammut of heated and unheated cat houses for a semi-protected space outside, and while all those products have served us well, this pad and KittyTube enclosure in general are at the top of all choices, short of a wooden or metal house.
The idea of a low-voltage heating pad is brilliant for durability, AND safety. With this design there is no need to worry about a fire hazard when you are away from the house, nor will this pad ever be a shock hazard for your beloved pet.
Plus, the choice of a coaxial connector is well considered on two counts. One, that you CAN disconnect the heating pad, serves well to replace either component upon failure, without replacing the entire assembly. Second, the coaxial connector is simply the best choice for outside use, providing physical durability and pretty robust water resistance. I would take steps to prevent the connection from being rained on or laying in a puddle of water, but the occasional spray of water and excessive humidity will not hurt this connector pair for many years.
Just make sure you clean and dry both parts at the end of each season, and perhaps even wrap it tightly with a foot of Scotch 88.
I'm buying two more houses with the pad, AND the pillow.
Kitty Tube Cat Bed and Heater THE BEST
Posted by Pam on 28th Apr 2015
I purchased the Kitty Tube and my outdoor cat went into it the first day/night I put it out. I then ordered the Heating Pad for extra warmth and comfort. This is an amazing product and worth EVERY CENT. No regrets whatsoever. My cat sleeps in it everynight and naps in it everyday
very nice warm house especially with the insulated extra layer

I like the kitty heater, and the cat does too. I had trouble with one not working after a month, and the kittytibe company replaced it promptly for me.I have a hairless cat inside who wants to be on the side of her bed. She is on it all the time. it's just the right temperature for her.
I wish all my feral cats outside would get along and not hiss and growl at each otherand would share the tube. If that would happen I would purchase another one. Right now only one can inhabit it at a time.
Warm and Happy Cats - Oh Joy!
Posted by Madlyn Powell on 9th Feb 2015
The heating pad keeps my cats warm every night in their Kitty Tube. They could not be happier - and neither could I. You will not have to worry about your cat or cats being kept warm and protected. The Kitty Tube with the heating pad is the best thing ever. No more worrying about your outside cats - what a relief!
Kitty Tube Warming Pad
Posted by Unknown on 12th Jan 2015
I purchased the warming pad to go with the Kitty Tube purchased last winter for a feral cat.
Kitty loves it!
This is a great company with great products.
Posted by Marcia O'Halloran on 6th Jan 2015
We were so happy to receive this product because last year we had to go out every several hours to microwave the heating disc to keep our feral kitty warm. He has since become a very spoiled house cat and we hope that his mother and father will make use of the heated kitty tube this year. My only problem is that I only have one outlet on the side of my house next to the driveway and will have to get an outdoor extension cord to bring it under the bushes in a more secluded spot. We love our kitty tube and now it is perfect with the warming pad!
