    This is is a low-quality cat carrier. Flimsy, cheap, collapses way too easily.

  2. (verified owner)

    to transport my 25lb MaineCoon cat

    I have 3 new kittens that all needed to go to the vet at the same time. My old carrier was heavy to begin with plus the weight of an animal! I ordered this carrier. First day I unpacked it they climbed in it, on it and enjoyed it. Two days later when we went to the vet they were calm because they could see out. It was easy to get them out of at the vet, unlike my old one that a cat could brace themselves in and refuse to come out. This is a great product. I saw another client at the vet with several puppies in a larger tent shaped carrier and they seemed to be having a great time with it.

  4. (verified owner)

    There is plenty of room for 2 cats. I have 2 kittens who take their naps in the carrier and play with each other inside. Great carrier.

  5. (verified owner)

    My dog lije it

    When we travel on airlines with our 8 lb silky terrier

  7. (verified owner)

    My 12 pound shih tzu fits in here perfectly. It’s also the perfect size to fit under the seat in a plane. I highly recommend.

  8. (verified owner)

    The other carrier I had did not have much netting for my cat to see out , this carrier worked perfect . More viewing room & comfortable , plus easier to get my cat in & out of

  9. (verified owner)

    I like this but I only put my dog there when he barks…It works…

  10. (verified owner)

    I like that it asks for a comfort rating as if my cat can tell me . It looks comfortable and I like how sturdy it is. I recommend 🙂

  11. (verified owner)

    Cats actually nap in this carrier. It’s lightweight and easy to handle. I’m going to order another.

  12. (verified owner)

    This carrier bag is awesome. At first I thought it might be too big for my dwarf rabbit, but it was perfect! He fit in there with a little bit of room to hop around, but not enough room for him to slide around or be in danger. I got the small size. The fleece padding at the bottom was comfortable, and easily removable for cleaning. The bag was very sturdy, and I found it to be the perfect minimalistic carrier for my wee bunny!

    Got this kennel for our kitten. He LOVES it. Seemed to be great quality. Love that it can fold and break down for storage.

  15. (verified owner)

    My kitten who was terrified of the hard plastic cat carrier I had, absolutely loves this cat carrier. He’s not afraid of it, he gets in it by himself. it’s made of great high-quality material, very sturdy. I’m very impressed! well worth the money.

  16. (verified owner)

    A bit over a week after purchasing it, the metal pieces that keep the bag standing came out. It would slowly slide outwards as I was walking. It scratched me so many times.I got a replacement, but that’s something to keep in mind.The strap can get uncomfortable if you use it on your shoulder for long, and the size regulator for the strap slides as you walk.My dog is 5-7 pounds

  17. (verified owner)

    This pet carrier is light and easy to get a pet in and out. The shoulder strap is great for heavier pets.The side zipper opening is great to get a pet in the carrier and the top opening is great to get the pet out.I have four cats. They weight from 7 pounds to 16 pounds.The large carrier was the only one big enough to give even the smallest one room to be comfortable.Large is the new small. The Amazon Pet Travel Carrier is a great investment.

    I found a puppy while I was on vacation in Antigua. I named her Annie and taught her how to love and trust people again after being thrown in a trash bin. I had intended on bringing her home with me, so had my fiance bring this travel carrier with him so we could take her back. Well, my plans fell through, but she did use this carrier to travel to her new furever home in New York!! The carrier is well made, super portable (squished down easily into my fiance’s carry on suitcase), and perfect for under-the-seat pet travel!

  22. (verified owner)

    Practico , cómodo , y pertenece a las medidas necesarias para poder viajar en la mayoría de las aerolíneas

  23. (verified owner)

    My cat hated it so much that he ate his way out of the carrier. After Two Minutes..

  24. (verified owner)

    It’s light weight and so convenient when taking my dog in the car. He’s safe and secure.

  25. (verified owner)

    Just perfect for my ‘fat-cat’, a 20 pounder, who fits very comfortably! it’s just right so that he has room to turn around, yet he can still feel secure. it’s easy to handle and carry, and was just what I needed to transport my cat to the vet!

  26. (verified owner)

    Our cat really prefers this carrier over the more “closed” old-fashioned carriers. He’s much less stressed in the car on the way to the vet because he has room to move around a little, and he can see out all sides and get lots of air. Well-constructed carrier, folds flat when not in use, excellent buy for the money.

  27. (verified owner)

    I was very satisfied with this carrier. Very nice!!

  28. (verified owner)

    I bought the smallest carrier for my quiet 6 pound chihuahua. It’s a perfect fit. I use it for travel in car, plane, walking. It would not hold up if your dog got restless, frightened or tried to get out. I’m sure the mesh would tear.

  29. (verified owner)

    This worked well for our weenie dog. It was comfortable inside with this little pad. I like the fact that it has lots of windows on the side for air, yet has the mesh so he cant get out. It has a carrying handle, which really helps and was sturdy. It didn’t bend, even though he is 15 pounds. I also like that I can load him in through the top or the front. Convenient.

  30. (verified owner)

    Was smaller than I thought it would be

  31. (verified owner)

    It’s for a small animal, like bunny, kitten or something like that, I got it for my rats, which will I learned will chew through it –.-

  32. (verified owner)

    Pretty simple to use, depending on your cat’s temperament. We put some soft material inside and our cat would go into it willingly. She also used it during our road trip when she was stressed, so that was a good sign. We didn’t use the top-load feature, but for some cats that might be the easier way to get them into the bag.

  33. (verified owner)

    Thanks for awesome travel bags

  34. (verified owner)

    The mesh insert of the carrier is very flimsy. It moves pretty easily. Also, the strap for the shoulder is not comfortable.

  35. (verified owner)

    It’s been a year. Both wires supporting the sides popped out scratching my arm

  36. (verified owner)

    The size was perfect for a large cat. She had room to move around. Plus, the ease of getting her in it.

  37. (verified owner)

    This is a well made carrier. Sturdy and well priced

  38. (verified owner)

    I bought the large originally assuming it cold fit both my small cats but it can only fit one, cant imagine how small the small size is.

  39. (verified owner)

    This carrier is well priced but after a couple uses the wire frame poked through the material and scratched me every time I used it. I’ve since replaced it with the Sherpa.

  40. (verified owner)

    My 8.5 lb puppy rides securely in this carrier with the attached strap that clips to her collar. Can sit up and look out as we travel.

  41. (verified owner)

    Smaller than I’d hoped, but nice

  42. (verified owner)

    Well I needed this item to carry my new pooch. He got flustered while traveling in the car. Maybe because he was not use to a carriage. One thing I like about it. Cats or small dogs its very airy. Good for summer travel.

  43. (verified owner)

    Just perfect

  44. (verified owner)

    For a long time me and my wife wanted to get a new carrier for our cats besides the solid plastic one we owned. We searched for one with soft sides and an opening on top as our fur babies can get a little fussy when they know they are going to the vet. This one works perfectly and even folds down for easy storage. It has been awesome for transporting our cats and comfortably fits them despite some being a bit on the larger side. Worth the buy!

  45. (verified owner)

    Love it and Hope loves it too. Cons: doesn’t fit well under airplane seat. The support board on bottom should be sturdier. Puppy is sort of tossed around when being carried

  46. (verified owner)

    to carry my cat!

  47. (verified owner)

    I was looking to replace a bulky carrier for my (on the chunkier side) cats. I was hoping this would be sturdy enough to do that, however I’d really only be comfortable even trying to use it with my 8 lb cat. My other two I’m afraid would break it as there’s very little support on the bottom to keep it from collapsing.

  48. (verified owner)

    Great product! Roomy on the inside and comes with removeabke pad, which makes cleaning up super easy. It also has the top slot which makes in and out much quicker.

  49. (verified owner)

    The carrier is perfect to transport your pet safely. Love that I can fold it and put it away easily unlike the box carriers that take a lot of space. I left it in the middle of the living room to see it my kitty would get in it. It took some time but he finally cuddled in it for a nap (could hear him snore, lol).

    Works great
