I don't usually use the word "best" in product reviews, but I am this time. There are so many things I love about this carrier I figure it would be easiest if I just did it in list format:* The frame on the carrier is very sturdy* It is a large cat carrier, but not oversized. My cat has more than enough room to chill out and move

Great carrier! I needed a cat carrier with an easy top load opening. My 15 pound male kitty is super strong and I can't get him in a front load opening. This is perfect, durable and it's easy to

I especially like the versatility of this product. It unzips and folds flat which is ideal for saving space! Having the ability to unzip and fold flat does mean it’s not quite as sturdy as some of the other cat carriers that I’ve had, but it’s a small price to pay. The material is quality and the additional straps that can be

Qualifier- For me, the purpose of buying this bag was strictly to transport my dog as carry-on in cabin on a plane. I have no intention to use this as a regular crate for daily or frequent use. The collapsible soft sides are perfect to squish to fit tight spaces that it was intended for.Nice bag, I bought the large one for my 15.8 lb

Great carrier. I decided to go with the large, we were able to fit our "thick" 27 lb. pug in with no issues flying Southwest. He had space to turn and lie down but I don't think a pet any larger would fit. For reference the little guy is 22 inches long (excluding tail) and 14 inches high. We did start training him to get in

I have become skeptical when I purchase things from Amazon. Sometimes the quality is on par with what I’d expect, other times it is not.This is one of those times I was pleasantly surprised. I expected a budget (but good quality) cat carrier and I received a good quality cat carrier!Since it is a soft carrier there are some minor

This is nice and light and I like that it is mesh but is not large! See my pics of cat out of the carrier and cat inside without it closed. My cat is about 13 lbs and clearly long. I don’t think he will be able to turn around in it but will probably work to get him to the vet which is what I bought it for. However I was trying to

I really wanted to like this carrier. I purposely bought it because it said it's for Large cats.I have to disagree with that description. I have a 18lb male large, long Ragdoll cat and I was sad to see he was very cramped inside this carrier.On the positive side, It's a very well made carrier, and I'll use it for Vet and Groomer

1st time I used it today to bring my cat in for surgery, first I noticed it was flimsy and a bit on the small side.

This is a perfect product for what I needed. I had a bonded pair of male rats. One passed away, and the other cannot be resocialized. (Adult males can be aggressive, and can end up hurting or killing new cage mates.) He is still fairly young, and unfortunately has to be a solo rat for the rest of his days. We try to interact with him as

TL;DR Sept 2020: You can use this with a kitten, and you can use it with an adult cat if you cut one side of the elastic/if you're in a sitting position.Original post:As soon as it arrived, I took it out, wrapped it around my right shoulder and under my left arm (which was kinda tight- clearly it’s not meant to be worn this way, but

Just received this and my northern blue tongue skink lizard loves it. He wanted to come out of his enclosure, so I placed him in this. He settled down and went to sleep as I did my morning chores. I just made sure he had already done his business. Even though it's washable, I don't want to deal with that. I didn't get a photo of him

So I have a bad experience prior to purchasing this product and trying to fly an animal. Short story I was turned away at Denver international and a vet had to come to the airport so I didn't miss my flight. Extremely expensive FYI.

I bought this to travel on a flight from California to Wisconsin over Christmas. My mini-schnauzer pup had never been on a plane. He's about 16 pounds and 13" at the shoulder. As some folks have said it was pretty hard to get the support wires down the length (not the arching ones) in by myself, but I was able to do it with a bit

Very Good product, do the job! After an exhaustive search for pet carrier to transport my 15 pounds cat overseas I found this one. I strongly recommend this product to bring your pet in cabin with you. My cats flew comfortably for about 24 hours (from Pittsburgh to Sweden). The carrier is extremely flexible so even the large one fits

After doing a 2 month long test with a hamster using it.This one is sturdy and dosent seem to break very easily.

This is a really great product! It is far superior to the hard-carrier I have had for at least 15 years when I had cats who weighed in at around 15 pounds. I now have two cats and find that although they like to keep each other company in the car, they are best in separate cages (due to combined weight) and getting jostled on the way

I have Sunny the cat in the car more than usual lately. I realized the small nylon carrier I had, was collapsing around him and too small for anything further than around the corner.

Okay so here's the deal with this carrier. I think the idea of it is really great. It zips together fairly easily, is lightweight, and very roomy! I have a 17 pound cat and it can be a struggle to find a carrier that's comfortable for him. The downside is that the foam-like material making up the sides is not the most durable, and it

I originally wanted a cat carrier for my rats because other small animal carriers just weren't sturdy enough and/or didn't have handles.

I bought this item to transport my 4 large male rats to and from the vet. It is a good size for them. I don't think it would work as well for more rats, as it would get crowded, unless they were young or much smaller. However, it works perfectly for us. The top door works well and the basket can be completely opened for easier in and out

It is pretty soft and flexible, however and might possibly not hold up if the occupants are intent on escaping. My 14 year old cat immediately opened the zipper front and got out. I found

I just want to say I would have given this 5 stars, but the bottom isn't hard or 100% waterproof. One of my cats needed emergency surgery and had an accident on the way home afterwards.
