Questions & Answers

10 Customer Questions

Has anyone used this on a southwest flight? Does it fit under the seat?
Answer by ChewyNov 15, 2017
On Southwest Airlines your personal item must fit within the 18.5 x 8.5 x 13.5 inch dimensions so this product may be too wide to fit underneath the seat.

Is there a strap with a clip on the inside? I've seen some carriers come with this, and I find it helpful to clip to my cat's leash harness so that if she gets out of it I can get her back in (she's broken a zipper on a carrier on the way to the vet before, and ripped another).
Answer by ChewyNov 05, 2017
There is a clip and small leash inside that you can attach your pet's collar to.

Does this bag have what would be classed as 2 ventilated sides as specified by American Airlines?
Answer by ChewyApr 15, 2018
This product is airline approved; some restrictions apply. Please contact your airline prior to booking a flight to ensure this product meets their specific requirements.

Is the carrier 10in wide or 13 in wide? The picture says 10 and the key benefits says 13
Answer by ChewyMar 30, 2018
This Carrier measures 17 inches long, 10 inches wide and 13 inches tall.

Zippers do not hold

We first used it 11/11/20 to take the cat for a check-up at the vet. He got out twice at home by poking his paw through the zippers at each end of the carrier. Once in the car on our way to the vet. Finally had to buy cardboard box to get him home.

Already broken

Taking my 2 pound kittens to the vet today, and the zipper is already broken... never even used it before. This was their first time in here. That's crazy....

She loves it!

It's great! 2 different style, soft mats for my cat to be comfortable. The front opening needs more enforcement. It droops.

Great for calm pets

I am using this carrier for my 5 lb rabbit, Ted, and my small 11 lb cat, Jada. I strongly recommend the carrier for an average sized Rex Rabbit--it is roomy, has some external storage space, and allows for comforting pets for stressed out kids through that little window on one side. While it worked splendidly for Ted, and I will continue to use it for Ted, it didn't meet expectations for Jada, who battled me every step of the way. She easily pushed through the zippers (which were just as easily repaired) and it was a touch too small for her. I was able to use the carrier to get her to and from the vet, but I was acutely aware of her escape and that worried me.

wish it were bigger

I like the carrier but it's small and for my 7 lb. cat ii's pretty tight. I like the padded floor and multiple zippers.

Perfect carrier

This is perfect for my 6lb yorkie. He can sit and stand in it comfortably.

Not Worth Purchasing

Although this is a nice looking carrier, after several times of use, the nylon began to separate from the zipper which I tried to tape closed, but didn't quite work - afraid the cat will push her way out - will look into buying a more sturdy one. I purchase food and other items from Chewy and do not feel they are responsible - just the way it's manufactured.

expensive cat bed

Went to use this carrier *for the second time* and the zipper separated. It's useless as a carrier, but the cats think it's an awesome place to nap.

Airline approved and more!

I bought this carrier for my daughter's pet bunny rabbit to travel with her from FL to AZ. The main selling point was that it was airline approved to fit under the seat. But, it turned out to be better than I'd hoped for. It's roomy and padded on the inside. It has several easy access storage compartments. And best of all it was so comfortable to carry. A great value!
