Hey Darlili maybe we'll see you around Chicago with your cat stroller!
I bought a pet stroller very recently. It is called "Pet Gear Travel System Pet Stroller"."
They say it fits pets up to 15 pounds but I really loaded it down with stuff when I went to a cat show recently and it worked fine... It made getting into the show with all my stuff and cat very easy, I was so glad I had it! I also used it when I went to the vet, I was bringing two cats so I stacked my Sherpa bag on top of the stroller's carrier (fit perfectly).
I really like this stroller! It has a detachable carrier (where the cats go) with removable handles that can be used as a regular carrier and also used in the car, with a strap at the back that you can put the seatbelt through. It all folds up, the carrier part and the stroller part, so I can easily store it flat.
When I first bought the stroller, I put the carrier part together and then put my large older cat in it in the living room to see if she'd fit. She complained as I put her in but then she refused to get out! I had to leave the carrier on the living room floor for hours while she slept in it.
I got it on Ebay for about $40 with free shipping, but they usually cost about $100.
I'm taking TWO kittens to the Chicago Pet Expo next month, and their cat show is on the second floor (which you have to walk into the middle of the show to get to) so I know I will be very happy I have the stroller then! I also plan to take the kittens outside in it when it gets warmer, to help socialize them. The only downside to the stroller I picked is that when the kittens grow up they probably won't both fit in it together.
I considered the Kittywalk stroller, but I didn't like how the front part is so open and the way it's so low to the ground. I am probably going to get another stroller when the kittens grow up, and I'm thinking I'll get one of the Petzip strollers
because I like how they look and they fit more weight so I could also use it for my smaller dog (25 lbs) if needed.
