    Hi, Yes I love the idea and had been thinking of doing this but it was the cost which worried me to be honest.

    yes i agree they arent the cheapest BUT an average size cat house would require the smallest panel available which costs £451.31 inc vat and if you think this is going to last for years, and say (im guessing here) the average stud cat would work for 3-4 years?????? these panels would see you through 5-6 studs probably more and the running costs are minimal and there is no risk of fire with these and they can be wiped/disenfected when needed and above all the heat they provide is very very healthy heat.so even though initially they seem expensive with the low running costs and all the other plusses they actually work out to be cheap in the long run.:cool:

    Yes, they do. Unfortunately I just bought tubular heating but will definately give this more thought when I am a better off financially.

    I worry with staying in Scotland that they won't be as effective, as it's dark and dreary and cold, the majority of the time?

    Oh that's good to hear. I will think about it for the future, I do agree in the long run it's better and more cost efficient.

    We found that reptile heat mats under dairy board is inexpensive, heats just a small area when the cat is laid on it and at 12watts, is very cheap to run.

    I love my cats but I couldn't justify spending £400+ on heating my cats - we bring them into the conservatory when the weather is that cold as they have seperate pens indoors.

    As soon as I win the lottery, move and have enough money to do that, I will, but not on my salary! :eek:
