Rated 5 out of 5 by Mews EXCELLENT
I am SO thrilled with this carrier. My neighbor moved out Summer of 2015 and ABANDONDED one of her outdoor cats. Last winter she used to go under a nearby inhabited trailer to hide and warm herself but it was torn down last month and the house is being re-done (no furnace in the crawl space anymore as a heat source). She can still go under it at nite but - no heat. I have tried to get her into a front door carrier with no luck for a year and a half. I purchased this carrier with the hope I could load her into it and WOW FIRST TRY with the top gate open and IN SHE WENT - NO HASSLE. She is now in my garden shed with a heater, beds, food etc. When this cold snap ends I will let her out of the shed and HOPEFULLY she will have learned that this is a good place to shelter in when she needs it. This carrier was SO easy to set up with good screws not just flimsy turn knobs .THANK YOU CHEWY for the FAST delivery - you probably saved the little girl's life as we are now at 9 degrees and going down to -2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texashousewife Great quality!
I purchased this crate for my large cats. I figured the top opening door would make it easier to get the scared cats in and out of at the vet. I was right! The top door made it so easy for me to pick up my cats and put them back without pulling them out of a dark crate. The weight limit for the crate was also surprising. My 15lb and 19lb cats each did great in the crate with their own blanket. I do not recommend putting animals in their together but as far as getting a heavy cat or small dog to the vet, this was the best crate so far. The sides being solid plastic with smaller holes calmed my cats more than their old metal crate did. I didn't have to put a blanket over it, they just slept in the crate quietly because it was so dark and comforting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gloria Chewy has great Customer Service!
I ordered 2 of these pet carriers but one arrived damaged. Chewy replaced it immediately! I really appreciated that. The product assembles very quickly and is just the right size for my 12 pound kitty (I got medium). It's a little lighter than the Petmate one we had before which is a good thing. Highly recommend getting a top loading carrier--lot easier to get a frightened kitty into it. Highly recommend the product and Chewy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppymom Love how tall it is.
We have a small puppy, but she was not able to sit up in her last crate because, although it is long enough for her, it was not tall enough. This crate is much taller than most so she is comfortable sitting up, but the length is still snug enough to keep her from having an accident in it.

The pug mix that I have loves it. We travel a lot and she comes too. This is great for her.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elliott Perfect size and very sturdy
I got this for my cat and researched top loading kennels quite a bit before settling on this one. Also I can tell you as far as I saw Chewy definitely has the best price on this product. I'm very pleased with the kennel. It was easy to put together, sturdy, and a perfect size. I'd recommend it for a cat or a small dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MotherNature1 A good buy for the money
The carrier arrived packaged well, in great condition, and swiftly. I'm not a fan of everything being made in plastic, but this is a carrier that is plenty sturdy for our needs. It was easy to assemble. The side door, however, didn't fit as well as one could hope, but letting the carrier sit in the hot sun for a day with everything installed and closed re-formed it enough to be just fine. They provide extra bolts and wing nuts - bolts are metal, nuts are plastic so be careful how you tighten them.
We haven't used it yet; it sits on the living room floor where both cats can go in and out, investigate, even nap inside. Both are big cats, both are were feral and still skittish so getting them into the carrier is a big deal:>) I am confident this carrier will work well. If we can't get them in via the side door, I'll pick them up and place them inside from the top - we really needed this option.
Chewy, as always ships lightening fast:>)
