At first glance, you may think these are dog bowls, but the new Crater Dot ($74) is actually a lounger for your dog or cat. The pet can curl up in the "crater" on the plush "dot" center with a foam base that contours to his shape and settle against the sides for more support. Snuggly.Plus, when chilly nights come, the sold-separately warmer kit — the same one that can be used with your regular Sleepypod — fits underneath. Whether at home, or on the road (with the 12V car adapter), your fur ball has a proper spot and a toasty bottom.
In addition to being a fab color, 15 percent of profits from sales of the style will be donated to breast cancer awareness and research charities. Although the donations began in October, they will be ongoing and not limited to just this month. Check out a list of retailers near you or contact Sleepypod to order directly for your lil pets.
Yay for CERWAY, who won a Sleepypod of her very own. The prize package includes the strawberry-colored carrier, mesh bed and cloudpuff blanket, and even a warmer for chilly nights! I know North is jealous 'cause he loves any warm spot. Congratulations!
Even if your pets are going no further than the vet's office this summer, there's no reason why they shouldn't travel in style! Whether going by bus, car, train, or plane, let kitties (and small doggies) get cozy in a Sleepypod or Sleepypod Mini. Offering a little bit of home wherever they are, it triples as a bed, carrier bag, and carseat. I can't get enough of the product's fun options – enter to win and learn all about them below.

We talk so much about crates and carriers, and how handy they are when it comes to travel, but the design of this carrier seems to be totally unique . . . and perfect for the kitties! Sleepypod Mini ($134.50) is a plush resting place for your tiny pal (under eight pounds) that's easy to care for, and best of all — take anywhere. Since I can't stress enough about how important car safety is, this carrier is PetSugar approved, since both the sleek Sleepypod and Sleepypod Mini come equipped to be buckled in while your animal sleeps inside.
I remember trying to lure my childhood cat, Precious, into one of those standard plastic carriers — there wasn't a single appealing thing about it and, I swear when she saw it, she knew it was time for the vet! This carrier, however, could easily double up as a pet's bed – with the removable top off — and it seems easier to coax a kitty inside this cuddly creation than a hard, sterile one. To make nap time even cozier, Sleepypod has an available Warmer ($55) that slips into the bottom layer, keeping your pets comfy on chilly nights . . . and, just to get a little more geeky, it even has a car adapter to keep the toasty warmth coming on the road! Maybe this should have been a Spoiled Sweet or Rotten poll, no?
I'm thankful for November! It's time to put the hot cocoa on the stove and warm up in front of fires with family, friends, and pets. To celebrate getting and being together, I've rounded up some great products that you simply must have.
