Rated 5 out of 5 by Lecee3 my kitties love the carriers!
I purchased three of the Petmate soft sided pet carriers because the hard shell carriers greatly stress out my cats. Soon after I removed and open one carrier from the box two of my cats were fighting to get in the new soft side. I had the top and front side unzipped for them. They love the soft plush insert bedding and the openness of the side panels that when they went to the vets their stress was greatly reduced being in these carriers. Three cats love them that I keep one open on the floor as a bedding and hideout.

I love this product. I can take my puppy Charlie everywhere and he is perfectly comfy. Mesh allows
for plenty of air flow and the zip top is easy to
unzip in case he wants to peek out and see what
is going on. Sturdy base has fleece lining which is
hand washable. Light yet sturdy. I use this product
everyday. Plus it keeps pet contained in car for

This carrier is perfect for my two cats One of my cats is medium sized and the other one is small and the fit perfectly. The carrier also has a soft wool bed inside which is very good especially for traveling which I'm moving to Florida from New Jersey so this carrier is the perfect size for the airline I'm so glad I picked these carriers I strongly recommend them for everyday use even traveling

I want to start off by saying what a terrific company Chewy is to do business with. It was the easiest and most direct on-line sale that I ever made. The site was easy to navigate and I immediately received a receipt of my purchase.
The product by Petmate is just wonderful for anyone that knows the difficulty of traveling with cats it is really the perfect way to travel. I got my two boys accustomed to the fur mat first before assembling the carrier itself. It was a very easy assembly too, just minutes. The zip top roof of the carrier is a very useful feature as the cats like to look around and it removes the feeling of being confined,
It has made travel with my pets an enjoyable experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by catmomma My kittens love it.
My two kittens like these carriers and so do I. I bought one for each of them. They are not very heavy to carry on their own. They fold up for easy storage in the closets, you can either hold the handles or use the long strap to carry it, and you can vacuum out the carpet. The only downside I have found to this carrier is that you cannot remove the carpet/fake cloth from the cardboard to wash it separately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lynseyklly Nice carrier
This is the first soft carrier I've tried and I really do like it. I used it for a cat that weighs about 11 lbs. I like that it's easier to see him and it is so easy to carry compared to the hard carrier. I was actually able to put it over my arm like a gym bag! I think the only down sides to a soft carrier would be if the cat has any "accidents" while in it, it would be much harder to clean. Also since the sides are flexible, they aren't as safe. I had it over my arm checking out at the vet and didn't realize a dog was checking him out until it started barking. Scared me a bit as I realized a dog could easily grab a hold of the bag, but it's a nicely made product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TigersMom Flimsy mesh sides destroyed in minutes by cat's teeth!
Bought this as an airline carrier as we are moving from PA to CO. Did a test run to vet, luckily. Found out that this carrier would not do the trick. Was planning on sedating him anyway, but the ease of which he destroyed the carrier was amazing. Mesh sides are very fragile and did not withstand the claws and teeth of my cat. He tore a hole and within minutes had his head out, followed shorty by his entire 16 lb. body. Would NOT recommend this for anything other than a kitten or extremely docile small cat.
