Cool cat carrier

Our kitties seem to like it but it’s too soon to give a it a awesome review. It’s exactly what we were looking for and believe it will work great.

Stephanie Krick
Perfect for our cats!

We love the quality and practicality of this backpack carrier. It’s great that we can use if as a duffle style carrier too but have yet to do so as the backpack style of wearing is so easy. Our cats sleep in it during the day and love going out for short trips around town with us. Fits our average sized cats (10-12 lbs) easily. Well worth the price.

Perfect Size for my 4yr old Adventure Cat!

The backpack offers the perfect amount of room for my cat to turn around and get comfy inside her backpack. It fits great over my shoulders and so far she’s taken a liking to it after her first couple of hikes! She loves looking out the bubble.

Marty getting ready for adventure

It’s a good bag, he now likes to get inside to say he’s ready to go out. Took a month to get him used to it. We’re currently at 30 minutes outside 2 times a week. He’s ready for 3 times ;). My older cat will not go near the bag though. If you have multiple cats, one may get territorial about it.
