Smart 2-Door Design

Thoughtfully designed, the pet kennel features two doors, one in the front and one on the top, which means twice as many options compared to most kennels for getting little fluffy calmly into her kennel. Easy entry helps promote a less stressful experience – for both you and your pet.

Convenient Features

For added convenience, the top door can be opened to the left or right. Simply pull one of the two black handles forward to release, then lift and swing to the side to open the door. The door on the front of the kennel features a spring-loaded latch. Pinching together the top and bottom levers of the latch and pulling forward allows the door to gently swing open.

    While the carrier served its purpose…I will need to purchase a larger one as my cat is getting bigger…overall the carrier is ideal and a great buy

  2. (verified owner)

    I love that this has screws that can be tightly bolted to prevent the separation of the top and bottom in comparison to others that break off and have to be zip-tied. I got the bigger version and it fits a big cat or a couple of kittens.

  3. (verified owner)

    I have three cats, all with distinctly different personalities and body size and build. I bought this for my strongest, messiest, squirrel-esk, loudest cat to go to and from the vet. I’ve had others with similar design and found them not to be able to hold the middle connectors with active cats. So far this one is holding up well, but I haven’t used it much yet. I will say the top loading feature is more cumbersome and does not have the same ease of use as the former model of this that I owned. One needs to work fast and hard to keep the cat in the box and get the latch secured. But it’s easy to clean up and does the job to and from the vet for an escape artist cat once he is securely inside.

    I received this product yesterday and might I say this one sturdy pet carrier! The security to hold a pet in place and still give them room to move around is outstanding. I know I’m over-doing it but I’m really satisfied to the T. I have a 8 month old Tabby and he’s real peculiar about small spaces, especially small spaces he can’t get out of lol. But when I put him in it to take him to one of his Vet visits, he didn’t put up a fight or “yowl” the whole time he was in it. If anything, he was very comfortable and went to sleep lol. This a great product I would recommend buying. Best money I’ve spent thus far 🙂

    Despite the bad reviews I saw, mine was pretty sturdy and great. great choice for hard carriers and great price

  6. (verified owner)

    First off, the 19 inch size is so tiny, like it would only be comfortable for a kitten. I like that are added security features, but where the screws go in, the plastic is so close you can’t tighten them and the top comes completely off – another brand I own opens sideways and stays on. Will be returning this and looking for a better one; usually I love amazon basics but not this one.

    Just bought this for one of my cats and had such a great experience with taking her to the vet that I just ordered a second one for my other cat, (who happens to be chonky boy).I hadn’t seen the 1 star reviews but it actually looks like the design issue was fixed and there’s an extra clip function they added to the top lid to keep it secured.

  8. (verified owner)

    I loved it!!

  9. (verified owner)

    This crate is amazing because it’s easy to take apart and put back together. So, if your dog has an accident, you just unclasp the sides and you’re able to clean it. No 12 screws to have to undue.

  10. (verified owner)

    I recieved a product that was missing one of the latches for the holding the carrier together.

  11. (verified owner)

    Not 23 inches long even if you include the edges, which do not constitute useful space. It’s maybe 20 inches long. It’s small, in fact, and not big enough for a 10-15 lb cat to be comfortable in.

  12. (verified owner)

    This is a great value for a top opening carrier. Perfect for trips to the vet. Easy to clean, carry and use. You can’t go wrong here.

  13. (verified owner)

    We bought one and liked it so much we bought a second. Since we take cats for adoption events every other weekend little things like the ease of top loading make a big difference when loading up for an event.

  14. (verified owner)

    Obviously this carrier was never tested with the weight of a pet. Just another example of garbage from overseas with no quality control or proper engineering. This carrier is prone to pop open when carrying with the handle.

  15. (verified owner)

    I bought this to use with my 12 lb cat also for my 20 lb dog. Excellent, love that it can be opened from the to or front. Top off makes easier loading. However. I would never use it for any animal over 20lbs.

  16. (verified owner)

    i was undecided between the smaller and larger of the two carriers, but in the end decided on the larger. glad i did. it fits our two cats perfectly and should be ok when they’re fully grown. combined weight of our two cats is 10.8 pounds.we used the carrier to take our cats to the vet today for their shots. i underestimated the value or need for the top door. it works great and is much easier to get them in and out through the top. highly recommended. the carry handle is solid, but i didn’t use it because it’s unbalanced when the cats aren’t centered in the carrier or are moving around inside. easier to carry two-handed.for the money, this has to be the best of the low-cost pet carriers. highly recommended

  17. (verified owner)

    My cat and it’s pretty big and comfy

  18. (verified owner)

    Good case with multiple ways to open.

  19. (verified owner)

    The plastic smell is so hasn’t gone away no matter what we do…I wish I could return it and buy something else in return.

  20. (verified owner)

    for transportation

  21. (verified owner)

    Works for our pet

  22. (verified owner)

    Love it works like a charm

  23. (verified owner)

    Good quality at a good price

  24. (verified owner)

    As advertised. Easy to get our cat in and out. My husband loves that the top opens although it was easy to get our cat in through our the door which is larger than on some of the carriers I considered.

  25. (verified owner)

    This carrier has been great for our cat so far. She hasn’t gotten out while in transit to the vet. However, I am concerned that sometimes I can see the side latches for the top-opening wiggling up. So pay attention after a car ride when you go to lift by the handle, and double check that the side latches/tabs ensuring the top opening is closed, are down.

  26. (verified owner)

    Received it with a broken latch-see pic. Overall easy to assemble, other than the tightening the nuts with the screws to secure it better. Unable to tighten it properly. Gave three stars because although it is fairly easy to assemble and pretty sturdy hard plastic, the overall quality isn’t great and it was delivered with a broken piece.

  27. (verified owner)

    The product I received arrived already dirty and scuffed. I could not get the dirty marks out. Also when you screw in the bolt it is too hard to do without tools. I couldn’t get it tight and it is just loose, unsure if it would come apart while my cat is inside. The product is not sturdy. I will return for refund

  28. (verified owner)

    The ability to open top and simply drop our squirmy cat in this carrier is a major plus. Simply ensure the lid latching pins are fully engaged before transporting.

  29. (verified owner)

    I bought four of these. Sending cats on United. United roundly rejected them because of “ventilation” issues.

  30. (verified owner)

    Its functionally OK. You need three hands to op the top!

  31. (verified owner)

    This cage is super small, I have a kitten who’s only 7 months and he’s very crammed When we put him in. It was frustrating to put the screws on the sides because there was limited space.

  32. (verified owner)

    Prefect size. Using crate for one of my yorkie’s to travel in the car.

  33. (verified owner)

    This is a perfect cat carrier. It’s super sturdy and very easy to assemble.My chonk,Walter loves it.

  34. (verified owner)

    strong material. my cat weight is 12lb and I have no difficulty to put him in. Top door is very helpful.

  35. (verified owner)

    I initially ordered the smaller 19″. My cat did NOT want to go in it at all to go to the vet. I returned it and purchased the larger one, I think it’s a 23″. Works like a charm. Construction of both literally took 5 minutes.

  36. (verified owner)

    Great product, it fits my ferret really good. Still figuring out if it can be used for flights.

  37. (verified owner)

    This keeps the cat secure! He hasn’t figured out how to escape it yet and not having thumbs helps a lot! Wonderful security features! Easy to assemble and the handle is a puuurfect size for any hand size to grasp. Love the color scheme as it matches my kitty. Would recommend and purchase again if the dog eats it.

  38. (verified owner)

    Works great gor my smaller cat not so much for bigger ones…very sturdy

  39. (verified owner)

    Got the large kennel for my big 15lb tom cat. The second we picked up the crate by the handle (which is connected to the top load door), the sides of the top door started giving away like it was going to pop off. We had to carry the crate from the bottom the whole time. This is an incredibly stupid and dangerous design.Side note: the screws are really difficult to get in properly. If not for the top door/handle, this is an excellent carrier with lots of room.

  40. (verified owner)

    Low quality, not sturdy. I returned it

  41. (verified owner)

    My cat is sneaky so I love that I can put her in and take her out through the top instead of trying to get her in the front hatch. (The other cat can be bribed with treats. He’s gullible.) Just make sure the top is on very securely before picking up the carrier!!Initial setup is challenging. The nut/bolt combo is difficult to tighten due to placement.

  42. (verified owner)

    Top entry door is kind of a pain. My squirmy cat will probably make closing it a challenge. Not a simple open & shut. Disappointed.

  43. (verified owner)

    Easy to assemble (my wife put it together!) This is a good quality, sturdy carrier for a small to medium sized animal. I have an 11 pound cat that she is a little snug inside it but it appears to be working pretty good. It was cheap and I feel worth the money I spent on it

  44. (verified owner)

    I like how sturdy this pet kennel is and that I have two options on how to put my dog in or get her out of the kennel. She likes it because it makes her feel secure when we have thunderstorms.

  45. (verified owner)

    This is just the right size for the money everywhere else I looked for a carrier this size was 30+ dollars.

  46. (verified owner)

    This is for a small cat or dog. Mine weighs 9 lbs and was almost too big.Works great for cats. We load her in through the top which is nice.

  47. (verified owner)

    Like that the top opens since my cats aren’t too eager to jump out on their own when I take them to the Vet! Well constructed.

  48. (verified owner)

    My cat who is about 6lbs. 6years old had enough room. Stayed upright on backseat and stable. She settled quickly. She has only been in a soft carrier to go to for her yearly shots. This year I purchased this one and as i stated she settled in quickly. She had a couple of her toys and a chew stick. She was content. She also had enough room to move around a little and lay on her side to stretch out. This carrier had an end door access and door on top. The vet tech could easily get my cat from carrier by top door. Put her back in carrier by end door. Less hassle for all. Her name is Dog.

  49. (verified owner)

    My cat could get out of the soft cloth zipper ones so I tried this one out. Very well made and he even goes inside to sleep in it occasionally.

  50. (verified owner)

    Sturdiness of the carrier surprised me. A tiny bit of assembly is required but we are thoroughly happy with this carrier for our cat.
