Mod Dream Pod Cat Beds

Would your cat like a heated bed that looks like a flying saucer? Check out the Thermo Mod Dream Pod heated cat bed. Recommended by MyCatSylvia.

As autumn approaches, Sylvia and I are looking forward to cooler weather and all the benefits that come with it. For me, that means comfort food. For Sylvia, cooler days mean lots and lots of snuggle time. And yes, I like to snuggle, too. But in this case, with the awesome cat bed that I just found, Sylvia will be happy on her own. Same with her cat friends and I can promise you that no cat could possibly complain about these cat beds. Why? Because they're heated! (Or not. Your choice.)

Check out the Mod Dream Pod cat bed, available with or without a built-in heater. It's shaped like a flying saucer, or a clam, with a shallow bowl-shaped bottom and another bowl for the top. Zip the top and bottom sections together to form a cat pod, or cave, a comfortable place where cats who like a hideout can nap the day away.

But wait, there's more!

I mentioned the heater. Inside the Thermo Mod Dream Pod is a microsuede-covered cushion that zips open to reveal a small, energy-efficient 4-watt heater. Plug 'er in, the cushion will heat up, and kitty-cat will stay warm all day. The heater is designed to increase the surface temperature of the bed about 15 degrees above room temperature when you plug it in then, when your favorite feline curls up in the bed, the heater bumps the temp up to about 102 degrees Fahrenheit, a cat's natural body temperature. Cool! Well, actually warm!

Is the Thermo-Mod Dream Pod Safe?


Yes! The pod with the electric heater has been carefully tested and is perfectly safe. You will need to place the bed near an outlet as the cord is 5 1/2 feet long and using an extension cord is not recommended.

I love the modern look of this cat bed and adore the pretty green color. Note that the heated version of the Mod Dream Pod (called the Thermo Mod Dream Pod) is available in the green and black and the tan and black colors. The unheated version is also available in gray and black.

From reading the reviews, it appears that these beds sold out last winter and were on back order for some time. With that in mind, you might want to go ahead and order your cat's new bed (you know she wants one) sooner rather than later.

The Thermo Mod Dream Pod would be a fabulous gift idea for someone with a new cat or kitten and, of course, your cats should have one, too. Note that the pod is 22 inches wide so if you have a couple of cats who like to snuggle together, they probably wouldn't mind sharing and probably would fit. Watch the video to get a better idea of the size when the cat comes out of the pod. He looks tiny, but he isn't.

Amazon seems to have the best price for these Mod Dream Pod cat beds, but do yourself a favor and compare with what's available on eBay. The price varies by color and, of course, whether or not you choose the heated version. Again based on customer reviews, I'd definitely go with the heated version. Clearly, cats love that feature. 

So tell us, does your cat like to snuggle to keep warm? Would he or she enjoy a heated bed that looks like a flying saucer? Sylvia really wants to know!

    1. Totally agree with you, Grammie O! I've never met a cat who didn't think he or she (especially she) was an all star! Appreciate your comment!

    1. Good catch, Kyla! Yes, use a lint roller on the outside plus the cushion inside is machine washable. Thanks so much for commenting!

  5. What a cute kitty bed! I have one grandkitty who would love a heated bed, but I worry that the other two would chew on the electric cord. Still, I am going to send the article to my daughter to see if she will let me get one for our "little girl"

    1. I've had a dog chew a cord (fortunately the internet cable and not anything electrical) but never a cat, though I'm sure there are some that do chew cords. That's a good point and could rule out the heated pod for some families. Hopefully your daughter could situate the bed so the cord wouldn't be in a tempting position for the two nibblers. Hope they can work it out. Appreciate the shares!

  6. These are cool! I've seen instructions how to make "felted" ones...but I am not that crafty. I like that there are some for sale.. pre-made.

    1. One of the cat hats in the next post is from felted wool. I'd love to try it. It certainly would make a cozy cat bed!

  7. I don't have a cat but if I did I am sure I would get one of these for her. I always have female pets. But I'm more of a dog person. I think they would like it too.

    1. Heather, I think any small-ish dog wouldn't mind one bit that it's a cat bed if they could get in there with that heat!
