Rated 5 out of 5 by kristarodz Nice secure pet kennel/carrier
I wanted a spacious and secure carrier for transporting my cat. I had both a small, soft top-loading carrier and a hard plastic single-door carrier. The plastic one had clips that "secured" the lid to the base, but when I was moving from one apartment to another I discovered how NOT secure it was when the base separated from the lid while I was carrying it and my cat fell to the ground and ran from me (fortunately one of the animal-loving movers grabbed him before he got very far). I tried one other time to use that carrier and once again, it separated and that's when I knew I needed one where the lid was held on with screws. This Petmate kennel is perfectly secure and roomy. My cat recently had a leg amputated and I carried him to/from the vet in this carrier and the top door made it so easy to lower my kitty into it. That's the one thing I loved about my soft carrier, but now I have both the ease of the top-loading door and the security of the hard plastic carrier in one. I am so happy with this purchase!

I am so pleased with this. Have always bought Petmate carriers but with the 15-16 lb. cat I have now who hates to go in a carrier worse than any I have ever had - this is the best yet.
No more turning the carrier on its end - propped up against a wall with one knee - trying to hold the door open with the other knee - while trying to slide a long, heavy cat into that small opening!
I am also pleased that there are screws securing the top to the bottom instead of the fold over plastic clips, which were always the first to go, requiring the purchase of a new carrier. Hopes this one lasts as they seem to get much more expensive with every purchase.

My cat likes it so much she naps in it. Very sturdy and extremely easy to put together. Just what I wanted and the price is excellent too. I'm sure it will give us many years of service.

This is a good sturdy carrier. It bolts together so it is more secure feeling than the snap together ones. I have a 20lb. cat that hates being pushed into the small carrier front doors and this one is so much easier just to open the top and put him in that way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by msrubi54 Small is small
I purchased the small for my kitten, 6 lbs. She can't even stand up fully in it and despite the 2 doors, was difficult to squeeze her in. Small is good for little kittens. Don't go just by weight. Easy assembly and seems to be constructed well. Exchanging for the medium.

Love that this is a USA-made product. It's easy to assemble; feels sturdy; door is easy to open and I like that you can access pet from "sun-roof" type door. Hard to know from a web site whether or not you'll like a product, but this was definitely a hit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hazelanne two doors are exactly what everyone needs!
Having two doors is so important. The front door allows my kitten to enter and exit to explore comfortably. Once it was time to use the kennel for travel, the top door made it so much easier to place her inside.
Only wish I'd had one like this long ago and wish now I'd gotten one a bit larger for my dog, too.

HAVEN'T USED IT YET BUT I'M CERTAIN IT WILL BE GREAT FOR OUR CAT CHARLIE AS HE IS A GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST. GOES TO THE VET IN 2 WEEKS AND THEN WE'LL KNOW FOR SURE. I'M NOT EXPECTING ANY SURPRISES.
