I moved to a new house with a little dog which my cat is deathly frightened of . When we go out of the room to get a litte perspective she travels around with me in the pack to keep her safe. Its a huge house , so its our 1st step. Once she is harness / leash trained we'll go on hikes ♡ My cat loved it right away ! It didn't smell like strong chemicals so I just let it air out for a few hours. The bubble was easy to pop on. If she's wide awake she goes in height wise & if we need to drive she goes in laying down with the carrier horizontal. The padding inside is really soft & slides to fit upright or horizontal & I can tell Daisy is in a cozy , spacious , breathable secure contained carrier ☆ The pockets on the sides are really helpful & the changeable shoulder strap to add & remove is super convenient & easy. I like it & love it 😻😻😻😻😻

We had our first outing using this backpack and my 10lb Siberian cat loves it. We have a different backpack from a different brand and it is fine enough. The best part about this one is the roominess. We recently got a kitten to help our 1.5 year old enjoy more catty cat time. (And he’s such a cute black kitten.) anyway, he had to go to the vet and our cat and kitten both fit comfortably in the backpack! Our cat liked it so much because she could stay in the open backpack while the kitten was examined. It provided the comforting ‘safe space’ even though it was brand new.

We leave it out for the cats to go in and out of and they seem to do that from time to time. Our cat is about 50% leash trained and we always start with a backpack when we go for walks. We’ll be leash training the kitten, too and I’m glad we have this cat sack ;). May have to get another when the kitten grows up.

It arrived super fast. It is high quality and sturdy. We recommend it.
