I am very pleased to have found a cooling pad that works and is not filled with a liquid, however, it should have a non skid backing, as my dog likes to 'fluff' it before lying on it which then makes it less effective.
When I received them at my home in Arizona, the outside temperature was in the 100s. I went out to check my mail and opened the packs. They were pretty warm on the outside but cool on the inside when I unfolded them.
My kitties took a shine to them right away and I am glad that I ordered two sets.
However, my senior cat hasn't seem too impressed with it yet...I hope he eventually realizes how soft and cool it is and starts using it!
I was completely disappointed with this product not at all what I expected, flimsy and distasteful.
The mat is cool to the touch and my dogs seem to like it. I thought it would be cooler than it is. As long as my dogs lay on it that's all that matters (even my cat seems to like it.)
