About This Item

  • Innovative cat carrier is the ideal alternative to a traditional hard-sided carrier; a zipper runs the length of one side and the bottom to quickly and easily wrap the bag around your cat.
  • 100% cotton bag is soft and roomy, allowing her to move and stretch inside of it while providing gentle, comfortable restraint.
  • Soft fuzzy fastener collar wraps gently and securely around her neck to keep her head outside the bag and ease her fear of confinement.
  • Convenient handle becomes a shoulder-strap and a seatbelt loop for the car; easy to lift and move unlike most bulky, awkward pet carriers.
  • Zipper access also allows the vet or groomer to access your cat for exams, nail trims, etc. while the bag stays on; available in three sizes and three colors.

Questions & Answers

22 Customer Questions

How do I know which size? My cats weigh 10 pounds.
Answer by ChewyMar 25, 2018
The sizing for this Carrier is based upon the cat's weight as well as their body length. Please refer to the attached size chart to find the best fit. If your pet is between sizes, it is recommended to go with the larger size.

Has anyone ever had their cat escape from this carrier? Also, while the cat is inside the bag, how easy is it for the cat to take off running? The bag looks loose and that is my main fear, that they will take off even with the bag on them. Thanks in advance for any answers.
Answer by ChewyAug 22, 2018
This carrier has an adjustable Velcro strip that allows you to tighten the collar snugly around your cat’s neck. Make sure there is enough room to get a finger under the collar. This way the cat is held securely and comfortably. There is no tension on the neck when the carrier is lifted by the handle. Their carrier is roomy and the cat cannot brace against it to work his way out. Make sure to get the right size to fit him properly.

Is it possible to trim claws while in this bag? I found a little kitty, about 5#, that has razor claws, and there's no holding this little munchkin still. I don't see a place for a leg to stick out.

This Carrier has zipper access that also allows the vet or groomer to access the cat for exams, nail trims, etc. while the bag stays on

can you give your cat a bath in the bag
Answer by ChewySep 09, 2018
The Cat-in-the-bag can be used to bathe your cat.

Purrfect Cat Carrier!

I cannot say enough good things about the Cat-in-the-bag Carrier Bag! My sweet kitty boy always dreaded being closed into a traditional cat carrier, and I wondered how I could make it better for him. Turns out, all he wanted was the ability to see what's going on, receive love and pets, and move around while traveling. This carrier bag is absolutely PERFECT! So easy to use, and he loves it. When we have a support human with us, he gets all the love, pets, attention, and visual entertainment he wants. And if I'm alone, I can safely strap him into the car seat near me. PERFECT for a nervous kitty who just wants to see what's going on.

Easy 2 get her in & out. Kittie doesn't like being confined. As soon as u unzip it she runs & hides. She's claustrophobic so I needed something easy 4 she & I both 2 use. My kittie's groomer was so impressed she asked where I got it, she wants 2 get some so when customers don't have 1 they can loan them 1.

Not for my cat

I get the concept and thought this would work for my overly anxious cat. She is a “cave dweller” so it seemed like a good fit. Well, she LOVED going inside the bag, and we let her get used to that for awhile… but as soon as it zipped we had to unzip it for fear she would hurt herself. She freaked out. We may try this again in the future because she hates the crate so much, but at least in the crate I don’t worry about her strangling herself.

Allows our spicy boy to be examined!

We have a VERY factious cat who just cannot be handled at the vet and this is now the only way the vets can handle him. I wish I had found this product years ago. All the office staff loved it and I can tell our cat feels secure in the bag. 10/10 all around!

Go Before You Leave Home

As advertised this was pretty easy to get over his head and zip him inside. He sat nicely on the trip to the vet. All was going well until he emptied his bladder. The item is cloth - My car seats are cloth - not a good combo.

Worked on one cat, not the other

My cat at home was terrified when I put him in this carrier. I had to extricate him and use the old carrier box. My cat at work accepted it, but grumbled loudly. I'm saying, some cats do NOT like the carrier bag.

Cats escaped

as the title says. Mine escaped. Maybe others would be better but too much effort for an easy escape

I have two big Maine Coons. In order to carry both at the same time I use these bags. I still have free hands to open doors. The cats also prefer to have their heads out. They feel less confined and can see more of what is going on, hence less stress. Don’t know what I’d do without them!

dreamboat of a bag

from someone who has had to literally cancel or be late to vet appointments trying to get my cat in a loud, clunky swinging door having kennel... this is fantastic. i just opened the bottom enough to slide him in while I pick him up and hold him like it's routine and boom. hardly a peep from him and he loves to stick his head out and look around. carry it like a purse on my shoulder. wish i would have gotten it sooner.

the cate in the bag

I really prefer this cat carrier to the hard shell kind. It is softer and nicer for my cat.
