Why Choose "The Fat Cat" Cat Backpack, Our Customer-Favorite

"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.

He loves it..!!!!

Omg. I had a little carrier from PetSmart & he HATED it. I mean I would leave out for him to sniff out & even hang out in it & he did not do any of that. Tried putting my scent a scarf, his toy, kibbles, even cat nip. Then I discovered this beauty & he loves it!! Hangs out each time I’m on the couch & I give him a toy to slap at..!!! And he is PICKY..!!! Finally thank you so much great backpack cat carrier. Highly recommend.

Great Cat BackPack

This is a well made backpack. Cat is not loving it yet but we'll get there.

Best Backpack Ever

This backpack is AMAZING. I have two kitties, one is about 1.5 years and the other is about 5 months, and they both love this backpack. Better yet, they both fit in it! I got this originally for them to travel together with me when I fly home. They both fit comfortably. My older kitty gets stressed during travel, so I opted out of flying with both of them. But, I had 3 connecting flights during one trip and my older kitty had so much space and was more than comfortable throughout the whole trip! It fits underneath plane seats, which is something I was stressed about as well. Cannot recommend this backpack enough!

Happy kitty

I have a 8yr old large cat. I got her this for Christmas so she can go hiking with us and outside. She loves it. Lots of room for her to move around. Straps are comfortable on my shoulders. Great quality material. I love it. Thank you for making me and my baby girl happy.

Better for him, and for my back!

Reggie cries a lot when he's in his crate, even with all of his favorite blankies, toys, and treats. Not to mention, it is a huge hassle to get him in there, and carrying it absolutely murders my hands and back.

The Cat Backpack made the 5-hour car trip a breeze. He laid down and fell asleep, and was comforted by being able to open his eyes and see me, right there, through his little astronaut dome.
