I bought this based on the good reviews and that the size would meet United's requirements. Unfortunately, the first carrier I received seemed to be defective. I could not assemble--the black stiff base piece was too long, so the provided Velcro tabs did not work. Chewy promptly sent a replacement, and the base piece was a bit shorter, and the Velcro just barely attached, keeping the base in place. The carrier did fit just fine under the seat in front of me on both Boeing 737 and Airbus A319 airplanes. Interestingly, the United agents didn't check the size of the carrier--they only looked inside to see if my dog could stand up and turn around.
My kitty hurt her nose rubbing against the inside of her old plastic carrier too much. This carrier has more room and has a soft interior. Perfect for my loving kitty! It's strong. The bottom is solid so you don't have to worry about feeling like the cat's in a bag (pun intended). Happy with this purchase!
This carrier is lightweight and easy to get my cats in and out of. I like that it is open so they can see and the flooring is good for them to grip. Not that cats are easy to get into and out of anything they don't want to get into. lol
Bought this carrier to try instead of the old heavy animal carrier. Placed it open on the floor when it arrived. Both of my cats got in and laid down. Used it to transport my rescued cat who hates to be confined. She did meow while in it but was calmer. Glad I purchased this one.
My cats are terrified of their old carriers so I thought I’d try something new. They both love these carriers - Suzy taken up residence. I did buy a larger size than the specs indicated.
I bought this carrier for my cat and it is great. As I don't have a car I wanted something easy to carry for my cat and it is exactly what I needed. My cat also loves it and it is a safe place for him, especially at the vet !
Seems to be well made and sturdy. Would be better if it had a pocket or 2. The top opening is nice but unfortunately my dog still refuses to get in it.
These are the best carriers, especially if your cat is a difficult one to coax into the standard hard shell carriers. This one has a front or top entry. We had one, from years ago, and I just ordered 2 more...thought I had ordered the same size as before but had accidentally ordered the incorrect size :( the lady at Chewy was so kind and quick to help and resolved the error and got the right sized ones sent right out to me! Thank you so much!!
I bought the medium bag for my 7lb cat and the large for my 15lb cat. These were good choices for the two cats; they both have plenty of room in each bag. The top of the large bag does sag, however. I liked the faux wool liner that is easy to take out and wash in the washer. The rest of the bag has been easy to wash too (remove the cardboard insert and soak the whole thing in warm, soapy water).
Haven’t traveled with it yet but Daisy loves hanging in the carrier at home. Getting her used to it before taking it on the road. She is almost 12 lbs and the large is perfect.
