Your Cat Backpack Style Comparisons and Feature Details

If you're here, you might be wondering what type of cat backpack we sell is best for you. Here are some more details to help you decide! You can also always contact us with any questions you might have - we love sharing the excitement in adventuring with your cat! 

Features of all of our cat backpacks:

  • Tons of features that allow breathing and air circulation. Trust us, we wouldn't sell something your cat or pet can't breathe in. 
  • A mat at the bottom for comfort, that's removable.
  • Adjustable straps.
  • A leash clip on the inside. Many folks keep their cat on a "True Adventurer" harness while in the bag, and clip the leash to the clip in the bag.
  • Potentially airline safe and compliant - every airline is different. Read more here.
