The heater does warm the rooms but it takes a while. Especially if in the 20s. This heater will take my worry away about Chance. True it is not cold - in the 20s - often. but it gets cold enough for him to possibly get sick.
There is a thick flannel cover that fits his large cage. I used to have an older heating bad that worked perfectly lying on top of a thinner cotton material. Chance loved it. Unfortunately it died last year.
The newer heating pads are auto to turn off. That doesn't work for Chance.
I really think this heater is the answer. If he fluffs up and likes to sleep near the heater. I bought a winner. 8-)
