So far our cats love this carrier, so it’s a win for us. It looks very classy and grabs compliments from staff and clients alike at the vet. However, the plastic is stubborn. To close the top and the door takes some practice. Please PLEASE, especially if your cat is likely to run out into a potentially unsafe place if it takes you a while to close the openings, practice opening and closing the carrier several times until you’re comfortable. I wouldn’t trust putting our most skittish cat in here until I’m much more comfortable with the top closure, for example, because we would put her in through the top.
The carrier itself is beautiful and comfortable. We leave it on the coffee table and the kitties love to take turns napping in it, even if we’re not going anywhere. Our cats are large and it’s only big enough for one cat, but quite spacious for one.
