Pros: great for the car.

Cons: a bit heavy

I got this carrier to replace the soft sided one which I had used a few times. I prefer the hard sided carriers. At first, it was impossible to get my guy into the carrier.

For some reason, this carrier seems so much easier.


I really do like having the top door, in addition to the front door. The top door makes it easier to get my guy out when he hides.


I keep the carrier out at all times. My guy, who is a very long slender cat, loves it! It is his hiding spot when he does not want to be bothered. 


I would definitely recommend this product. I like the way the top handle is placed. I can easily slide the car seatbelt through it, making me feel much safer to be in the car with my guy


Pros: Handle's sturdy, has two doors (front and top)

Cons: Hinge snapped off easily

I purchased this to take my first cat home. It served me well with vet visits.. the handle was comfortable to hold, and the top door was extremely helpful when it came to the vet.. my cat is a terror and top loading made it easier to get him out of the carrier.


However, after several uses, the hinge on the top door broke off and i was unable to fix it. I've since donated the carrier to the vet who could use it for parts.


Pros: Nice colour

Cons: Can't be used for travel

I used to have one of these things and thought it would be great for travel I got one of those air travel kits with metal bolts and ties but the airport would not accept it because of the top door. I got a petmate sky kennel instead.


Pros: I abslutely love the top load gate, it makes putting a cat in there so much easier! Well built.

Cons: Price a little high

I think they should all include that top load gate. It is sturdy and well built, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the price. But notice I bought one anyway!


Pros: Top opens

Cons: A bit heavy

Not sure if I have the medium size or large size. I bought it because I have a cat who is fat. But I really love the top opening on this carrier. It is convenient for prying cats out who do not want to be at the vet. Or anywhere else. I've used it multiple times and it still looks nice. my friends comment on oh what a nice carrier you have. I think it's better than the ones that open from the middle folding out. Although I've never had one of those, I did watch a video on them and I wasn't impressed especially for the money.


Pros: Easy to put feral/shy/fearful kittens in and out, roomy, well made!

I LOVE THIS CARRIER. I already had 4 cat carriers that I used for my small rescue, but I began searching for one that opened on the top that I could use for feral/shy cats and I found this one! It is great! I got the large size which is good for every cat that I have used it for, it also will fit several small kittens in it which is nice! Overall, this is now my go to carrier!


Pros: Opens from top and end, secure

Cons: Neither size is great for cats

I have 3 of the previous models of this carrier and LOVE them.  Those are no longer manufactured, so I got the replacement.  I'm disappointed at the size.  They now only make 2 sizes.  The smaller size is ideal for young kittens, but it's terrible for an adult cat, unless the cat is very petite and doesn't weigh too much.  The larger size is huge and very roomy, however.  It would work for a large adult cat.  Unfortunately, there is now no size in between, which would be perfect for the average cat.


Pros: My cat feels secure, it is spacious, and the fleece lining you can get at PetSmart fits it perfectly.

Cons: Hinges seem slightly questionable for fat cats

I love this carrier. I love how comfy my cat looks in it, I love the size of it, and I love how secure I feel traveling in the car with my cat in it! My cat actually loves this carrier so much that he will choose to go in it by himself. I highly suggest :)


Pros: It light until cat gets in lol

Cons: My cat princess gets out off it

Good carrier for kittens as my oldest cat princess knows how to get out. Its hard to close up and make sercure.
