Pros:Heated water in sub-zero temperatures
Chew resistant cord
The Bottom Line: If you have an outside cat or dog and don't want to keep chipping ice from their water dish, consider the Thermo-Bowl.
I thought I had my feral cats prepared for the winter with their insulated cat house and their Cozy Cushion cat bed. However, I was in a dilemma as to how I was going to maintain their food and water supply during the harsh, cold winter months.

My husband came to the rescue again and built a feeding station with a roof so the food would not get saturated with water, nor would snow fall into their dishes. The cats could stand under the roof to eat without getting wet. So, the cat food problem was solved, but how could I make sure they had water to drink when the temperature would become below freezing.
I searched the web and found the perfect solution: a heated water bowl! The bowl I decided to purchase was a plastic type bowl made by K and H Manufacturing. It is called the Thermo-Bowl.
The Thermo-Bowl I chose is a 96 oz. bowl in a bright blue color. The Thermo-Bowl also comes in a 1.5 gallon size which would be much too large for my feral cats. It is an electric bowl that can be plugged into an electrical outlet to keep the water from freezing all winter. It is guaranteed not to freeze water even below 20 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. The cord is 5' 6" long and is steel wrapped and chew resistant. All electronics are safely sealed. It is UL Listed and runs on only 25 watts.
The Thermo-Bowl is available in blue in the 96 oz. size and the 1.5 gallon size is only available in a gray granite color.
The Thermo-Bowl was reviewed in the May-June 2008 issue of Shooting Gunman Magazine.
The cost of the 96 oz. Thermo-Bowl was approximately $ 30.00.
I am relieved that my feral cats are able to drink heated water all winter long and I don't have to worry about their water freezing.
Now, my only worry is, when we move from this house, what will become of my spoiled feral cats?!
