Great, solid carrier for larger cats. Our cats are all around 10-11 lbs and the flat bag carriers never looked comfortable for them, likely increasing their stress at being transported. This carrier is basically a baby carrier and has a firm/solid bottom with propped legs but can be stored flat. Apparently it also has straps on one side for seatbelt use. Our cats can all comfortably sit and lay down in the carrier, oftentimes choosing to chill on it instead of other cat beds. We live in a somewhat fire danger zone, so having easy to use carriers that could be comfortable for the cat for a longer drive than just to the vet eases my pre-prep mind.
Getting my little female cat to the vet is a nightmare. I can’t catch her or get her in her old carrier. Granted it had been used a few times by both cats and even wiping it down with a calming wipe she just saw the carrier and would run and hide. I got this one and put it in the living room next to me. She jumped into it on her own! But then her big brother took it over. They were fighting over who would sit in this new thing that came in a Chewy box. They can read Chewy and know it must be good and just for them. It got so bad between the 2 of them that I ordered a 2nd one with pink and red flowers. Sheldon took that one over and even putting the sides up Gracie jumped in the black one to finally claim it as her own. I hope she feels that way in June when she goes to the Vet for a dental cleaning.
I love this carrier and think it’s so cute how people always mistake it for a baby carrier! it’s super spacious and I’ve caught my girl laying/sleeping in it at home. I mainly wanted it because her old carrier just seemed way too cramped - this one is heavier and a bit more difficult to carry but definitely worth it since my girl has more space to chill now
I have a cat who gets carsick, and this has been amazing! We’ve dubbed it “The Cat-illac” and she loves how she can sit, lay, standup, and turn around. Because she gets carsick, I will put a duffel bag on the passenger seat and sit this carrier on top. Then, I’ll “put the top down” and she’s able to nicely look around. Also love that the bottom/base of the carrier is hard (feels like wood?) so I don’t feel like she’s unsturdy when walking.
Surprisingly high quality. The all around mesh gives kitty a nice view and removes that trapped feeling. However, consider using a small blanket to cover for those who want to feel more secure. The existing bottom is sufficient, but not luxurious, so I added a small donut bed for added cushion. Be sure to secure the metal supports to the bottom with the provided Velcro fasteners. Unsecured, the basket collapses for storage. Easy push buttons open either side and lower entire cover for use as a bed. Bonus points for style! This carrier gets compliments from veterinary staff and friends alike.
this is the best safety seat for my pup. she didn't like anything at all that I tried with her to be safe in car. but she seems to like it and we go to different places. I am so happy that i found something she would be good in. its worth every penny I spent for it. I made a soft cushion for the bottom and I can't be any happier with the carrier. she is getting so calm now. thank you so much for this item.
I got this for my 16 year old as we were getting ready to move and start a new chapter in life together. They only reason its not 5 stars is there was some kind of defect it looks like where the car seat strap/attachment was connected. It was twisted and so does not hang or sit level. Unfortunately the day after this arrived my cat had to cross the rainbow bridge so this was here last ride and I dont imagine using it again. But it is wonderful for sun and fresh air and very roomy...I would recommend
I bought this for a vets appointment and put it on the floor two weeks before to get them used to it, they love to play in it but while just playing they ripped a huge hole in the side of the mesh. Now I’m in a bind and have to duct tape the hole together for their appointment and hope they don’t rip any more on the way.
These are amazing!! So glad I got 2 Mainecoon Owners this fits our 6 and 10 Month MC perfectly. Our 2 yr old MC can ride safely in the car leashed in. He is too big to be carried around/ to the vet in this carrier. For those of us with Domestic kitties too, perfect for life. I love these. We have many styles. I believe this is by far my favorite!!
My cats love this carrier already. It’s very spacious and I personally think it’s adorable. I especially love that there are loops for the seatbelt to secure them in transit. Rated 12/10 toe beans!
