Products to keep your pet warm and safe all winter long.
The wintry season shows no signs of slowing down, with more snow and sleet on the way in many areas. Recently, we've talked about cold weather pet care, and suggested some ways to beat the blizzard blues this season.
But what if your pet just needs a comfy bed or coat to stay warm indoors or out? If your furry friend could use an extra layer, we've rounded up some of our favorite gear for keeping your pet snuggly and safe through the winter.
You've probably heard about the Snuggie or the Slanket, but did you know that you can also get a Snuggie for Dogs? These wearable blankets come in four sizes, and are comfortable and loose-fitting for your dog to use inside the house or outdoors. And if you're also feeling chilly, you can buy a matching one for yourself!
If your dog is more the rough-and-tumble outdoorsy type than the Snuggie type, try the Ruff Wear K-9 Overcoat. This durable, easy-to-use jacket also improves visibility as your pooch romps in the snow.
For even greater visibility and safety in overcast weather or windy snowdrifts, clip the Ruff Wear Beacon Safety Light to your dog's collar or clothing. The Beacon stands up to the most vigorous outdoor snow play, and keeps your dog visible up to ½ mile away.
Of course, many dogs prefer a long winter's nap to a lengthy session in the snow. So if your pooch could use a toastier sleeping spot, try the Eco-Friendly Napper Dog Bed. As a bonus, the fabric is created from recycled plastic bottles, so your pet can "go green" while staying snug.
And if your cat needs a safe spot to curl up, keep her warm with the Slumber Pet Thermal Cat Mat. And because the Slumber Pet reflects a pet's own body heat, your kitty will stay comfy without you having to worry about batteries or electric cords.

You might as well say that it's spring in Longview now, So Skitters with all this rain she could use a raincoat. If I take Skitters for a walk in the rain and I have an umbrella I try to hold it over her but she runs from it and won't stay under it. But she doesn't care if I hold it over my head as long as it is not over her head. The neighbor's cat Charlie seems to love being out in the rain what a strange kitty. Teddy hates the rain and Shorty will watch it but he wants to know what the heck it is. As for Skitters she hates the rain and won't go outside unless I go with her or I am taking her for a walk.
