So, our wonderful heated mattress scorched our sheets, my pillowcase and pillow, burned it's own connector black, and is now in the trash. DON'T get a Perfect Fit heated mattress pad. We took our BB&B coupon* and got a Sunbeam, which is a more reliable brand. We also put this Queen size one on our standard double size (quite sufficient for us) for one reason. Dual controls. I cook at night, D freezes. Now we are both comfortable. We shut the furnace off at night completely. I like to warm up the bed, then shut it off, most nights. The pad is a bit fluffy on our mattress, but not too bad, and we got straps to cinch it down a bit. And the controls have a nice dim light, the heat is better distributed, and modulated. All in all, I wish we'd known about this brand three years ago when we got the off brand one.
Moby is happy to have a warm place. During the day, since we turn it on for him, he sticks to D's side. At night, he still prefers to lean on me, so far. While we washed the sheets, Moby didn't care, and now it has black fur on it. I wonder why.
Heat seeking cat.
*Bed, Bath and Beyond, a ridiculously pompously named chain store that sells kitchen, bathroom and bedroom froufrou, with a small amount of actually useful items. Much better supplied with 'useful' in Boston, less so here, but it does work for bedding. And they send out "20% off one item" coupons with great regularity. You can also get a lot of "As Seen On TV!" items there. Shop with caution.
