    Posing for a Medium size

    By Dixie on Nov 30, 2020

    I hope the photo of Boots helps you to decide on a size of Paw Pods. Boots is a lively 12-14 pounds. He would fit in a medium. When my cat Jonesy passed, he weighed about 7 lbs so I was able to include his towel in the medium size. I calculated that the small size would be way too small for Jonesy even without his towel. I was very pleased with the Paw Pod. This is my second purchase.

    For my cat, Layla

    By Logan on Aug 6, 2020

    Laid my baby to rest in this. Wish it was a little longer, but she fit well in it and it locked and secured well. Shipped super fast as usual. Glad to have found this affordable option to lay my girl to rest in.

    Fits with extra room

    By HamFam on Mar 5, 2020

    Already used two of these for our syrian hamsters. They fit along with more than enough space for some additional bedding and treats/food/small toys you may want them to rest with.

    Poor quality control

    By imagoodshot on Jul 15, 2019

    I ordered one of the med pods and we could not get the included clamps to go onto the box by hand no matter how hard we tried. My husband tried to tap one onto the pod with a hammer and the edge of the pod broke off. Chewys sent me a replacement and six different people at my office, including a mechanical engineer, tried to put the clamps on the box with no success. This 2nd box was also warped and one corner would not close all the way leaving a 1/3" gap. Chewy issued a complete refund but this is not a product that should have such sloppy QC problems as it just added to the grief of an already traumatic experience of losing a beloved pet of 21 years.

    Pretty and well made

    By DorisPants on May 3, 2019

    When our cat was diagnosed with cancer, we decided on a natural burial when it was time to say goodbye, which happened much sooner than we expected unfortunately. The pod is sturdy and well-made, pretty, and snaps closed tightly. The medium was the perfect size for our 12 lb boy. We lined our pod with Chewy packing paper (he loved that more than the famous boxes) and had enough room at the tops and sides to add flowers. This is the first time I've had the luxury of a planned goodbye for one of my pets. The pod was a beautiful piece of our send off, and allowed us to do something special for him one last time.

    The small is too small and medium is really big

    By TRock on Mar 16, 2019

    The small is too small and medium is really big. They need a size in between the small and medium. My chihuahua weighs about 6 lbs, and I could fit at least 4 in the medium pod. I have no choice, but to keep the medium! Unless you have a 2-3 lb teacup furry friend, you will need the medium size. Otherwise, the product is well made, and biodegradable. Love the customer service at Chewy.com

    Perfect but...

    By dakota on Aug 11, 2018

    It itself was perfect! But I was unsure what size too get. Just letting anyone know in the unfortunate circumstance, this size is perfect for an adult rat. And our flowers sprouted from it within two weeks. This made losing him ALOT easier to cope with all around an very well thought out product.

    Appears perfect

    By Micki13 on May 11, 2018

    I hope I don't have to use this for a LONG time, but it appears to be exactly what I will need when the time comes. Felt insensitive when I bought it, but the WONDERFUL Chewy folks assured me I wasn't and it was just good planning.

    Great product, but....

    By Emma on Jan 22, 2018

    Love the durability of product. Only thing fasteners are not well made. Was supposed to come with four, received three and the fourth was broken. While trying to fasten, one broke so only had 2 to fasten. Ended up using cable ties to make sure pod was shut tight.
