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.

Love it!

I love this backpack. It’s comfortable and not too heavy. I like the extra straps for your chest and abdomen area.

Barbara Dunn
Love it!!!

Didn’t get to use for purpose I bought it for, but love it.. well made, plenty of room

Seymour likes it and so do I !

It took a few days to get him used to it but now Seymour likes it and even sleeps in it when we get home. It's light, the straps are comfortable, and over all the backpack is very well made. Seymour's harness clips in easily. It's fun to share the outside world with him and take him to my favorite places where he can see birds, sniff new scents, and feel grass under his paws. It's fun to see him happily exploring

All that and a Bag for Cats

Ever wonder how you could capture Jackson Galaxy’s awesomeness in one item? I don’t think it’s possible. Although, you can capture a happy cat in this backpack or tote, it’s great that it can switch. I wouldn’t say capture as much as ‘Watch Pepper jump in!!” Love it and I’m hoping to train our kitten to love it but I know at least one cat loves it so it’s already a winner!!
