How to Choose the Best Astronaut Cat Space Backpack 

Your furry friend needs a carrier that’s comfy, secure, and breathable. Here are the features to look for in an astronaut cat space backpack:

  • Air holes
  • Ventilated mesh windows
  • Security
  • Removable pad
  • Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Safety straps or clips
  • Space capsule design
  • Breathable mesh


Ventilation/ Air holes

While you may be concerned that your feline can’t breathe in their space cat backpack, as long as the carrier has air holes and mesh, your little tiger will be just fine. But if a backpack doesn’t have air holes, forget it. 


Ventilated mesh windows

Ventilated mesh windows give an extra boost to a backpack’s breathability. Mesh is a strong material that won’t tear easily when your kitty rips her claws into it, but it’s thin enough to allow your cat to breathe.



Most kitties are little escape artists, so your astronaut cat carrier needs to be highly secure. Usually, this means having sturdy zippers and tear-resistant material. 


Removable pad

This is one you may not think of right off the bat, but trust us, at some point, you’re going to need to clean up a little spill, and a removable pad will make that a lot easier. One sign of a great cat backpack is that you can take the pad out and put it through the wash, then stick it back in for a backpack that’s now good as new!


Adjustable shoulder straps

It’s not just your kitty’s wellbeing you need to think about. Adjustable straps will help you fit the backpack squarely to your shoulders, avoiding any shoulder or back damage.


Safety straps or clips

The last thing you want is for your feline to escape his backpack and run off. If your backpack comes with a clip or safety strap, you can clip on your kitty’s leash to make sure they don’t get free even if they manage to get out of the backpack.


Space capsule design

It goes without saying, but be sure to pick a backpack you like the look of. A space capsule design is a fun way to show off your kitty while out and about, but more importantly, it gives your cat a window to look out of. If your fur baby can’t see what’s happening, she may start to panic, and no one wants that. 


Breathable mesh

Make sure your astronaut cat backpack is made from breathable material. Often, mesh is the safest choice to keep your feline breathing easy.
