Love it!

Great quality. Cat loves it. It is a good size. Vent holes in the plastic dome and bottom are perfect for feeding him treats. Plenty of mesh so there is good ventilation. He is 8lbs right now and can lay down/turn around comfortably when the bag is upright. Likes to go for walks harnessed in with the top unzipped. I'm 5'2" and my husband is 6'. It fits us both well and comfortable. Seat belt fits around it nicely as well. Kids in the park like our "astronaut cat"

Great all-around pack

A very versatile pack. My kitten is only 7 lbs but I love that it gives him room for either laying in at home, moving on the trail, or resting. Breathable, with options to change out the front from the bubble to a screen or just left open. Also big enough to throw a cooling or warming pad in the bottom depending on the season. Also maybe important to some, I'm petite and this wears comfortably for me as well! This will be his backpack for life!

Great way to transport your feline/small canine kids in!!!

I live in a hurricane area and we are due to have some serious storms this season so I bought the Fat Cat Travel Cat Backpack and am SO impressed! I have another cat carrier backpack, even has the bubble window but it's way smaller, and while it's got a hard shell, for my pets comfort, it misses the mark that my new Travel Cat Backpack so directly hits. There's a lot more airflow which both of my cats really enjoyed when I took each one (separately, of course) out for a stroll around my neighborhood. Upon arriving back home and after being let out of the backpack each one gave me a signal of approval. One arched his back and rubbed on my leg and the other one got back in it of his own accord later on in the evening for a cozy and secure, I imagine, cat nap. So, good job, Travel Cat! I know two things now. 1. My cats will be safely and easily and securely transported if we ever have to evacuate from a hurricane or other severe weather warning. And 2. I'm ordering a second one really soon to replace my inferior other cat carrier backpack!

Great backpack!

My little adventurer loves this backpack - even when we’re not out and about exploring. He’s a small cat and has tonnes of room.

Patricia (Pat) Collins

Our 10month old 3/4 Maine Coon - 1/4 Bengal now weights close to 12 lbs and this Fat Cat Backpack is PURFECT for her! She is in it every morning when we take the dogs for their AM walk. She enjoys watching from her "moon window" and then she walks on leash on the return portion of our walk. Very Happy with the purchase and tell all who stop to ask about it...
