Sturdy Construction!

I feel so safe having my cats be able to be transported in this backpack! The materials are top notch and heavy duty!! I saw a review below where the front has potential to pop off, and it may happen with enough force or something, but I tightened the piece on and put lots of weight on it and it seemed fine so I am happy with it.

Super Awesome

This backpack is worth every cent it costs. It’s well constructed, roomy, looks cool af and my tabby loves it. Easy to carry around too. Thnx Jackson for making something that I’m sure will last for many years to come.

Great backpack. Careful! Cat can bust out window or grill

This is a great backpack— very high-quality. I do have some advice. A determined, or stressed out cat, can break out the bubble hole or the grill hole. This happened to me today while flying in a 737. my kitty pushed out the grill and the lock ring popped open with it. Next thing I know he’s struggling to get out. I will be gluing that part of the backpack shut, and thereby losing the option to change between the grill and the bubble.

Aki the travel cat

Have gone out on two walks with Aki, and she is getting much more fond of it. At first she was just curious; was not sure liked it; but what a great way for a less confident cat to gain confidence; going out but in a very secure and safe way.
