It took a few days to get him used to it but now Seymour likes it and even sleeps in it when we get home. It's light, the straps are comfortable, and over all the backpack is very well made. Seymour's harness clips in easily. It's fun to share the outside world with him and take him to my favorite places where he can see birds, sniff new scents, and feel grass under his paws. It's fun to see him happily exploring
Ever wonder how you could capture Jackson Galaxy’s awesomeness in one item? I don’t think it’s possible. Although, you can capture a happy cat in this backpack or tote, it’s great that it can switch. I wouldn’t say capture as much as ‘Watch Pepper jump in!!” Love it and I’m hoping to train our kitten to love it but I know at least one cat loves it so it’s already a winner!!
Yes, it is a little expensive. But to me, it was worth every penny. It is great quality and its amazing. There's more than enough room, it's not awkward to wear at all. I love that it also can be used as a cat carrier. Most importantly, my little guy LOVES it.
Every day I take my cats out in a walk around our 10 wooded acres. When I leave it out on the ottoman they go inside to sleep.
My cat Sirene and I are looking forward to using this carrier. She always cried in the other plastic transport, but so far, she loves this one!
