Spoil Your Kitty
Most animals prefer a cool surface to lie on. However, in a typical home the options are limited to hard floors or pet beds that don't account for a pet's thermal discomfort. Over time, sleeping on an inferior surface or pet bed that can't mitigate the build up of heat next-to-skin, can lead to hip and joint problems and pre-mature aging. It's not at all different from your own sleep surface! Outlast large machine washable cat beds are designed to keep your cat cool while also being soft, supportive, and durable. Interactive, dynamic technology keeps your pet Not too Hot, Not too Cold™.
Outlast "Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold" technology, originally developed for NASA, utilizes phase change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort. Outlast technology is comparable to ice in a drink; as it changes from solid to liquid, it absorbs heat and cools the drink, keeping that drink at the desired temperature for longer. Outlast phase change materials work in the same way, but are microencapsulated to be permanently enclosed and protected in a polymer shell. We call microencapsulated phase change materials Thermocules.
This encapsulation process makes the Thermocules exceptionally durable for many applications. These Thermocules can be incorporated into fabrics and fibers and have the capacity to absorb, store and release excess heat. This gives any product containing Outlast technology the ability to continually create a perfect microclimate. As the cat's skin gets hot, the heat is absorbed, and as it cools, that heat is released.

Outlast Rating At-A-Glance
Outlast's comfort rating system will help you distinguish the right product for you. Product performance is based on the following levels: Gold, Silver and Bronze. A higher rating indicates a greater capacity for heat storage, resulting in more comfort.
Gold: appeals to people who experience night sweats such as women exhibiting symptoms associated with menopause.
Silver: suited for thermally incompatible couples
Bronze: sufficient for normal sleepers in search of a more comfortable night's sleep.
** Products carrying the silver comfort rating do not offer the same heat and moisture management capabilities as our gold level core bedding products. This is due to the fact that an Outlast fiber is used as opposed to a fabric coated with substantially more Outlast technology found in our gold level products. As a result these blankets should be sold as a supplement to our gold level core bedding products, not a replacement.
