Description

Help ease your feline friend into her carrier with the Van Ness Calm Carrier E-Z Load Sliding Drawer Cat Kennel. Putting your cat into her carrier can be an anxiety-inducing experience for her and you. This carrier helps make loading and unloading your pet easier, and overall creates a less stressful experience for both of you. When you’re ready for your kitty to go inside, simply pull the drawer out, load her in and close the drawer. This carrier is crafted from high-impact plastic, so it’s easy to clean and since the base and the drawer nest completely inside the top, it stores efficiently. With flow-through ventilation on all four sides, your kitty will get plenty of air and even a view, too! And to ensure that she stays securely inside the carrier, the heavy-gauge wire door is designed with an easy-squeeze door latch. This carrier is engineered and manufactured in the USA to IATA Airline Standards (always double check with your airline before travel). Best of all, it’s easy to assemble and there are no tools required!

Key Benefits
  • Helps reduce travel-related anxiety and fear (FAS) for your feline and you!
  • The sliding drawer eliminates the need for forced loading and unloading.
  • Delivers flow-through ventilation on all 4 sides.
  • Crafted from durable, high-impact plastic—it’s easy to clean and maintain.
  • Designed with a heavy-gauge wire door with an easy-squeeze latch for extra security.

    Great carrier

    By Flow on Oct 7, 2021

    The other reviews are saying the door is flimsy and falls off - that is not the case if you install the door correctly. It took a LOT of elbow grease to push down so that it actually clicked. It DOES click, and once it clicks, it is secure. Very easy to use for cats that hate getting in the carrier.

    Good, but perfect

    By Catmom on Oct 8, 2021

    The concept is great. My vet recommended this style. It’s a little smaller then I’d like. The door is flimsy when you pull it out. I used zip-ties to secure it. Other then the door issue, I like it

    Needs some construction alterations

    By MissKitty on Aug 11, 2021

    Fabulous idea but needs some construction alterations. When you slide it open the cage door always comes out so trying to position it back in each time you use it isn't user or cat friendly. I wired the bottom of the cage door to the carrier to anchor it in place but the door spring is difficult to get into the hole on the left side of the one I received. I think if the outside of the carrier were or rigid the problem would be solved.

    Happy customer

    By Laurie on Aug 2, 2021

    Purchased the cat carrier. As a pet parent it's hard getting your 4 leaves child into a a carrier From top or sides. This slide drawer made it so easy. Need to get another for the oversized cat he might not fit as comfy as the first one.

    Very cheap but will keep until there's a better alternative.

    By Vianca on May 30, 2021

    This carrier would be amazing if it was better quality.The bottom is warped so it jiggles when there's nothing in it, the hinges to the door squeak loudly, and it's a struggle to close the door more often than not. My cat doesn't like it when I have to force the drawer shut because things don't align the first, second, or third time. I won't be returning it is because, for now, it's what we got to work with. For the price, I expected a little better, but this is a good idea that I hope will improve in the near future for future buyers.

    Clever idea, defective execution

    By AprilM on Jun 23, 2021

    Your animal will escape from this carrier. The front gate does not attach securely to the blue pull-out tray; there's no promised "click," just a wobble. In addition, the horizontal bar that takes a 90 degree turn into the blue pull-out tray at either side blocks the blue pull-out tray from sliding fully into the top & bottom sections, which prevents you from being able to slide the two spring bars into the lid to keep the tray in place.

    Not so great

    By Mona on May 23, 2021

    While this type of carrier is a great idea, this one just isn't so useful. It is very cheaply made and the bottom does not slide very easily at all. None of my cats will sit in it long enough to get it closed. They are jostled around to much as it is not a smooth slide. A much better design would have been to have a top opening to put kitty in and just use the slide out portion to remove them.

    Rabbit loves the drawer

    By Gretyl on Apr 9, 2021

    I purchased this to transport my medium sized rabbit, she had an appointment at the local Humane Society Spa Day :) This carrier is on the small size and I would only recommend it for small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, turtles. The drawer is a fabulous design and it was a big hit at the Humane Society! The drawer design makes it so easy and less stressful, to take your animal in and out of the carrier. The carrier is made from a lightweight plastic but I feel it's sturdy. The drawer does pull completely out but I like this option, in the event It needed a deep cleaning. It takes a little getting use to operating the drawer and it feels a little cumbersome at first, but after a few I purchased this to transport my medium sized rabbit, she had an appointment at the local Humane Society Spa Day :) This carrier is on the small size and I would only recommend it for small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, turtles.

My rabbit truly appeared less stressed being taken in and out of this carrier than my traditional door carrier. I'm happy I gave this carrier a try despite some negative reviews, I highly recommend it! … more

    Van Ness Calm Carrier E-Z Load Sliding Drawer Cat Kennel Van

    By BeBe on May 10, 2021

    Was apprehensive about purchasing a cat kennel online but this is really a nice carrier. Easy to assemble. Just have to open the sliding drawer - sit my cat inside slide the drawer closed and away we go! Much easier than trying to cram her in thru a small opening with the carrier moving all over the place.

    Flimsy carrier

    By KMKK on May 8, 2021

    This takes 2 people. Harder than my soft carrier. As soon as you start to close drawer, cat jumps out. Also a bit on the small side. Wire door does not fit easily into the holes and can fall off. Hard to close as you have to move it around to get it to line up with the slots.
