Awesome for cat adventures

As a vet student I always feel like I want to spend more time with my cat, Shuri, after long hours away. She always wants to go outside but walks on harnesses overwhelmed her and she would get very anxious. With this backpack she is so happy! I open it up and she jumps right in. When I get home we go for a destress walk and she purrs the entire time! She feels much safer up high on my back and able to see everything. The back pack is built really well and actually has lots of extra storage in the side pockets which is a huge bonus. The ability to add a hydration pack is also great, we might try some longer hikes this summer as she loves her daily walks.

Finally - A backpack that fits my body, is super comfy, AND is spacious for my cat!

The quality and fit of this backpack is just as nice as my REI backpack! I'm so impressed by the size, materials, and comfort of this backpack. All other backpacks I tried were truly a waste of money...this is THE ONE to invest in, 1000%. So over the moon about it.

Exceptional backpack!

I surely didn't expect this backpack to be THIS good. The moment I unpacked it, my 1yo cat jumped into it (not long before this, I've bought him a bed (from other site) and he could't even be near it) and started purring and sniffing it, not long after he started sleeping there. For one week I let him get used to this backpack and then we had some short trips. My cat isn't a big fan of car rides, but this backpack definetely made it more pleasant for him and it's clear that he loves this backpack and enjoys these rides and walks much more.
Before buying it I was a bit afraid that my cat would be too big for it as he weighs 6kg (13lbs) and is quite big-boned, but it's perfect. It is not only comfortable for him, but for me too!
The quality is also superb! I can't recommend it enough!

Love This Backpack!

We love the Navigator cat backpack! My cat, Basil, feels so safe in it when we are out and about. We haven taken him to parks, restaurants, and on a road trip in this backpack and I can’t imagine going back to before we had it. Thank you, Travel Cat, for making a backpack that so well suits our cat’s needs.

Awesome backpack

I was a little worried before I ordered that the backpack would not be sturdy enough to hold my boy as he he quick big and still growing! But I do have to say the back exceeded my expectations. It is very sturdy and made extremely well. The materials are quality and you can tell that by only having the back for a shot period of time. It has now also quickly become Figs favorite thing, he loves to just go and sit in it, play and take naps. Could not be happier with my purchase!
