Hi guys. Wally here…along with Ernie. Now that the weather has changed and the temperatures are getting cooler, we’ve been seeking out warm, cozy napping spots. You can never have enough of them…right, Ernie?
You got that right, Wally. That’s why when we got the new Petmate® Jackson Galaxy™ Kitty Zip Mat to try out, I said to myself, “Cool! Another napping spot for us to fight over.”
C’mon, Ernie. We don’t fight over napping spots. Well, not much at least. But it is important to have lots of comfy spots available for us cats.
Y’know, we’ve reviewed some of the other Jackson Galaxy cat products in the past and always found them to be great quality products designed around those things that come naturally to us cats…hunting, catching, killing, eating, grooming and sleeping. Remember the Comfy Clamshell? That’s still a popular napping spot for us…so much so that sometimes we do fight over who gets to sleep on it. But now we have the Kitty Zip Mat so maybe there won’t be as many squabbles.
The Kitty Zip Mat is a comfy and cozy mat that can be converted into a tunnel. As a mat, it measures 36 inches by 22 inches which, when lying flat, provides a whole lotta lounging space for a big mancat like me.
The fabric is plush and soft…great for biscuit-making. It’s reversible, too. The other side includes a layer of mylar fabric that reflects a cat’s own body heat and makes the mat self-warming. It’s machine washable so no worries if a hairball or two gets yakked on it.
The mat converts to a tunnel with the use of a heavy-duty zipper. As a tunnel, it provides us cats with a fun but comfy hiding spot…purrfect for getting away from it all. It appeals to our nature to burrow and hide, but it’s opened on both ends for an easy escape if needed.
We found that we used the Kitty Zip Mat mostly when it was a mat and not as a tunnel. We’re more loungers than hiders. Ernie even uses it as a mat when it’s converted to a tunnel. He’s kinda strange like that.
We give the Kitty Zip Mat paws up! It’s purrfect whether your cat is a lounger or a hider…or both. And y’know…we bet even small dogs would like it, too. Between the Kitty Zip Mat and the Comfy Clamshell, we’re all set to be warm and cozy during the cold winter months ahead.
You can see all the Jackson Galaxy cat products on the Petmate website. And follow Petmate on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
