Why Choose "The Fat Cat" Cat Backpack, Our Customer-Favorite
Are you sick of leaving your cat at home alone as much as you do? Want to spend more quality time with your fur babies? Maybe you're hoping to train your kitty to love the outdoors? Or do you need a convenient carrier for every-day errands with your cat or trips to the vet?
"The Fat Cat" Cat Backpack can help you spend more quality time with your cat beyond the great indoors - giving your cat the enrichment and stimulation they need in a safe way so they can live a long and happy life.
Here at Travel Cat, we believe every kitty deserves a life full of fun & adventure. That's why we created our line of Travel Cat gear to include felines of all sizes - from the little floofs, to those who are "big boned". Adventure should be a pawsibility for all cat parents and their kitties, to embrace the wild side & get outdoors together.
What you've stumbled upon - a site and community filled with people who do more with their cats - is a small but mighty and growing community. The Travel Cat community is filled with cat parents who realize exploring with your cat - getting in the sights and smells outside of the house - is rewarding, healthy, and benefiticial for both human and feline.
Having high-quality gear is the most important factor when looking to spend bonding time outside of the house with your cat. We design our products with your cat's comfort and safety as top priority, along with your convenience and comfort as the cat parent, of course!
This sturdy, well-ventilated, breathable, and versatile cat bubble backpack will be a safe space for adventures with your cat, big & small - whether that's walks around the block, road trips, hiking at National Parks, flying across the country, or anything in between.
“The Fat Cat" cat backpack is our international best-seller! It holds the most weight of any cat backpack on the market — up to 25 lbs of cat.

It comes with a bubble window & screen attachment that you can swap out at your convenience!
All of our styles have a clip and bungee for you to attach a leash so your cat can "hang out" of the backpack.

My cat Enid loves looking out the bubble and is very comfortable inside her The Fat Cat backpack. Simon is still warming up to it but he seems to be more comfortable than in a traditional carrier. We call it their spaceship.
We bought one for each of our cats and the cats are pretty happy with the ride.
If they would have put half the effort into the comfort of the human on the outside as they put into the Kitty on the inside it would get 5 stars.
Truly uninspired suspension. We do quite a lot of Backpacking and Day Hiking with a day pack. For the money they are charging they could have done waaaay better.
The backpack is great for my cat and DHL delivered it fast.
My cat loves his backpack and getting to explore the world from inside of it. It can be a bit of a challenge getting him inside it sometimes, but once he’s in he loves going anywhere and everywhere
Waiting to receive two 3 month old siamese kittens to use this backpack. Have not gotten to use it, but it looks like a quality item. I feel good that it’s larger so I may put both cats inside, even as they grow up.
