I have this carrier http://www.petsmart.com/global/produ...=1118811074530

My 3 seem to love it! None of them have freaked out in it but I think that is because they can see through.

Also I love that it has carry handles and a shoulder strap, as well as a big mesh pocket to store things in

LOL The bright colors didn't hurt either

I think Petsmart will be fine. We get our airline approved carriers from our local petstore.

Just wondering . . . do you have to have separate carriers for each cat?

Air Canada is selling us a carrier for the kitten that we are shipping on July 6 to California. It is $51.75 (including all taxes and we have a lot of taxes here in Canada) and it is ours to keep. It has a built in water dish as well. They recommend that we get this one and I can't see that it is any more expensive than the pet stores.

Personally I would not get a soft-sided carrier for air travel as the animals will be in with other items and something could easily bang into the carrier and hurt the animal.

According to the information I received from our Toronto Customs, if you are shipping 2 small cats or dogs they can go in one cage, or several rabbits, ferrets, etc. They have a maximum number for each of the species which you can find on www.aphis.usda.gov (that's the US customs information).

My kitties will be In the cabin with me. Thats the whole point of me going on the trip they are my carry on hehehe....and the airline I am going with suggests soft sided for carry on so that it can be flexible to fit under the seats.

They dont ship cargo at all, but yes if they went cargo..they would certainly be in a hard carrier.

nope they are littermates and of a certain age so they can go together.

I bought a hard carrier when I flew with my birds, it fit under the seat (in economy class!) and afforded a good view.

I'm bringing Seamus on vacation with me and just bought the Sherpa carrier. He's riding in the cabin with me also. He's usually really good in his hard carrier for car trips, so I hope he enjoys this soft sided one too. It certainly wasn't cheap.

yeah i am gonna break down and get the sherpa, on petsmart.com its only 39.99 and maplewood petsmart matches
post #15 of 23
That's the one I got, only I bought the large size in black. I should have checked online first. The medium black sherpa was on sale for $49.95 at my store.

I agree with you that if I were also flying, the little one would be with me in the cabin (and only under the seat until we were airborne then on my lap). Unfortunately I'm not going to be on the flight with our little Blue Girl, so she'll have the hard sided carrier and be sent in Cargo.

aw well thats ok too two of my persians babies are coming by Cargo i am hand delivering these little guys tho..besides its an excuse to get away for a while hehe

It's expensive to fly with your pet either way. Continental's charging me $80 to bring Seamus in the cabin each way. Delta's only charging $50 each way.
post #23 of 23
Air Canada is charging $168 one way!
