    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 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 tries, it became easy for me. 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

    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.

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

    By on

    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.

    Had high hopes, but ...

    Bought this at a local store and returned it the next day. Good idea. Bad design. Poor quality. Door doesn't stay on when closing. Would be a battle to keep door on and close the carrier while keeping the cat in. Caps were barely threaded and did not tighten onto screws.

    Smaller than expected.

    By on

    Smaller than expected for the price. Says up to 20 lbs. It also says cat should be able to stand up and turn around comfortably. My larger cat will need to be stuffed in here which will be traumatic but I need to keep it for a Vet visit tomorrow. I wish the door opened, so it could be either slide out or open door. Best for kittens or a small cat.

    Easy to put together

    It is easy to put together and is sturdy enough for my 5 pound rabbit.

    Seems like a good idea...

    By on

    I haven't had the chance to use this kennel yet, but I think it will make life easier for me when I do. As my kitty has gotten older it has gotten harder and harder to get her in the kennel. I'll vtry to update this when I do get the chance to use it.

    Too small for average size cats

    By on

    Too small. Front door not secure. Cute idea, not really user friendly for adult cats.

    Chasse's New Ride

    By on

    We needed a carrier that made it easy for the vet tech to test the sugar level in Chasse's blood. We found this carrier the easiest and least traumatic to both vet tech and Chasse. This is a very cleverly built carrier.
