If you don't want to plug-in to the drivetrain and don't like hot water bottles, you can use this :

Snuggle Safe | Snugglesafe | Heated Pet Beds
Snuggle Safe Microwave Heat Pad is great for heating pet beds. Up to 12 hours of long-lasting warmth! Your pets will love the warmth of Snuggle Safe Thermapool at home or traveling. Heat in microwave for only 5 minutes (*depending on power of microwave) and then pop it under your pet's bedding.

6 minutes in 800 watt microwave provides all the heat of a regular hot water bottle for up to 12 hours.
Up to 12 hours of warmth
Quick and safe
No wires
Bite Resistant
Perfect travel companion
Ideal for newborn, convalescing and eldery pets.
FREE cover included
You can't sit *on* it, but you can keep it on your lap. Not a perfect/professional solution, but it helps.
