Love this bag!!

We have two cats we travel with, and started them off in other bags. We bought Loki “fat cat” backpack because we weren’t huge fans of his other bag. We fell in love with the back support, bigger bag, pockets. Loki also loves to shoulder and the bag has made that easier. We plan in the future to upgrade the other cat to a “fat cat” backpack

The new way for my boys to travel

My boys love the new way to travel. As they are two big boys taking them both in a cat carrier is difficult for me. Chang is used to a harness so he has been the first one to use the “Fat Cat” Backpack. It makes it easier for me especially as the last vet
‘s visit meant they both had to go so having one on my back made it easier to take the other in the carrier. My vets loved seeing them and how the backpack has made life easier for me. They also found it easier to get Chang out the backpack as Lao made it difficult to get him out the carrier. Once Lao is trained to his harness I will be taking them both out for excursions.

This is our second one and my travel cats love them

Two out of our five cats love to travel with me. Our main coon was the first one to have this backpack and I found it to be very spacious and comfortable for her. We decided to purchase a second one for the other travel cat and she seems to like it just as much

Even my hater cat likes it

Other than food, my cat likes one thing and it is a shoelace with a hair tie attached to it. I got this carrier because he gets so upset every time we go to the vet that he can barely be examined (even w/medication), I hoped getting a new carrier and attaching different feelings to it would help. I wear it in the front so that I can pet him while we walk around. I leave the top just a little open so that he can stick his head out. (Otherwise he jumps onto my shoulder, even tho he is attached to the carrier). He won’t admit it, but after three walks outside, he is starting to like it. It’s very sturdy and well made. Happy with my purchase.. which almost never happens with cat products.
