My 15 year old cat, Roxy, is feeble, but she gets around slowly. When I put her on the bed at night, she goes right to the mat! During the day, she sleeps on the dog's mat, which is on the floor! -)

For some reason my cat doesn't like it. She will lay on it for a few minutes and then gets off. But we will keep trying.

It's difficult to say if this is helpful for my 11 yr old rescue chihuahua. At least she doesn't resist it. Probably too warm for summers, we'll see but will continue to have it one of her beds.

My cats love this. They were immediately drawn to it, and they seem to have arranged a silent agreement for sharing it among the three of them. It is always occupied!

MI ordered this mat for my elder cat who has joint issues. He loves it. I am thinking of ordering another to have in his other favorite spot. It seems to help him feel better and move around a bit better. I highly recommend this healing mat.

This mat is fabulous! My arthritic cat of 12 years just loves to rest on this mat. It is soothing and comfortable. Thank you for creating and carrying such a wonderful gift to and for a elderly pet.

Okay. I bought this for me, after reading the reviews. I really think it works! I put it on my pillow under the pillowcase and have noticed I get a better nights sleep. I let my husband use it for a week and he thought the same. We'll be ordering another one so we each can benefit.

We have two sweet pups 7 and 4 years old both rescued, one from a foreclosed home by a realtor!! And they really like these pads, got one for the 7 year old and had to order another quickly, they were starting to compete for the pad. I think they do feel more comfortable on them and they do like them. And they do not smell doggy!!

My cats love their warming mats. I appreciate that the mats are washable.

It took a while for my cat Julian to recognize and get comfortable with the pad. I'm not sure if it is the feel of the material or just that it was a new and strange surface. I ended up putting a thin cotton covering that had been on one of his abandoned cushions over the pad and it is now one of his favorite places to curl up and sleep. He's getting old and has arthritis in his back, the pad seems to be soothing and comforting to him.

My 17 year old Balinese cat, Starbuck, has recently lost considerable weight. The mat has proved itself...where ever I place it, usually on my bed in the sun if available, he settles in purring contentedly. As a major added benefit, his appetite has improved!

I ordered this mat for my 9 year old bunny whose muscles are deteriorating in his back legs. Since laying on his mat he is much more mobile. It's his magic mat!

I purchased one of these pads for my dog who has trouble with a bad knee. He gets various supplements, occasional Reiki and acupuncture plus a homemade whole food diet. We are managing his knee well so I wanted to add this to his regimen. I believe this pad has pushed his situation another step closer to wellness. He's quite happy to romp, jump and spin.I also bought a couple pads for my husband and I to sleep on. The pad feels "cuddly" comfy on my low back. However, after 2 months of an ongoing family emergency, I started having sick headaches so one night I put the pad on my pillow. I felt noticeable improvementrelaxation of my head and shoulders after one night's sleep.At these prices, it's well worth a try.

If this mat works how wonderful for my cats. If not, at least I tried. I bought it mainly for my cat Max, who has trouble moving. But at any given time, I find one of my four cats laying on the mat. I plan to buy more so each one can have their own space. What a nice thing to have this Winter especially when the weather turns cold. I am now a believer!

My 12-year-old doggie has not taken to this. But the weather here in the Gulf Coast is still hot. Perhaps she will gravitate toward it this winter.

It took about a week before one of my two cats actually attempted to go near the therapeutic mat, but when she did, she seemed hooked. The other cat takes no interest in it, which surprised me, as he enjoys lying on anything similar to a towel or flat material. I'm not sure about the healing benefits, but my cat who lies on the mat seems happy and relaxed, and I guess in that case it is worth it. But I have no idea if she is actually experiencing any healing benefits, so the jury is still out on this product for me.

My cat Duster is loving his new mat. Being an outside cat sometimes it is difficult to bring him out of the elements but since I got the mat he tends to stay through the night to sleep. He's happy I am happy.

Our 15 12 year old shi tzu has bad acl's, other conditons and just old age. She lays on this mat most of the day. I notice she does not whine as much anymore and we have been able to dial back her pain meds. Not sure if that is the mat or just coincidence. Regardless she likes to lay on it and she seems more comfortable

I gave this as a gift to my brothers cats-one who is very arthritic and sleeps on a heating pad. He was very excited about the benefits of this new pad. However his cat did not agree and will not go near it but I will update this review in the future because sometimes it takes animals a while to test new things out

My 18 year old cat is not impressed with this mat. Nice enough but nothing special. Advise passing on this one.

My cat, Louie, LOVES this mat! He is an older boy that I had found seeking out cushions, throw rugs, etc. trying to get comfortable for what I believe to be some stiffing leg joints. As soon as I unwrapped this mat and put it on the floor for him, he immediately laid down on it in obvious relief. I have even found that he seems more attentive and alert since using the mat. I sat on a portion of it, myself, one day while grooming him and I found it to be pretty darn soothing for my old bones! Can you make one for humans, too

My 15 year old cat spends almost all of his time on this mat. I hesitated to purchase the mat as I was afraid he would not use it. He is resistant to change. However, once I got him on there it quickly became his favorite spot.

This item was touted in the catalog as a terrific pad for animals that experience pain. And that they may even be drawn to it and no longer desire to sleep with its owner. Not so with our dog, he could care less, in fact he often times noses it out of his way...

Put it in my dog's bed, but can't say she has seemed any more drawn to it than her regular bed...

My 10 year old dog loves this mat. I have it setting on the hardwood floor by my desk. He will lay on it until he is ready for bed. I clean it with a lint roller as a vacuum makes a charcoal mess.

This was a gift for my parents' cat. My Dad, who has very thin legs, uses the mat on his lap to make the "senior citizen" cat more comfy when she naps on his lap. She naps for a couple of hours, then jumps up, all feisty. She definitely likes it!

Both cats love it. First came sniffing and circling and backing away. Now it's the go-to spot.

I bought the small size for our large dog because he curls up like a rosebud and sleeps between us on the sofa. I bought it because he has bad knees, and I've had good results with the charcoal wrist and knee wraps sold by Isabella. I wondered if the blanket would be eaten before I would have a chance to review it, and it wasn't in the house more than 10 minutes before there were two bites out of it. Sadly for Mr. Wookie and happily for me! it must taste TERRIBLE, because those 2 holes are still the only ones in it. It is soft and cozy and he enjoys sleeping on it.

My three Bengal cats love this mat. So, I'm ordering another mat for the cat that gets left out when the other two are sharing. Despite all the places my cats enjoy lounging on, there's always at least one of them on the Therapeutic Pet Mat.
