What should I look for in an ideal cat carrier?

How do soft and hard cat carriers differ?

1 Answer

Cats need to be able to turn around, stretch and for longer trips be able to stand up in their carriers. Aim for a carrier no more than twice your pet’s size with room for food and water dishes that will attach to the side of the carrier.

Soft cat carriers resemble large gym bags with mesh siding for ventilation and usually have zippered openings on the front and top. Hard cat carriers are made of sturdier stuff and are ideal for larger cats. They are also the easiest to clean, requiring only a quick spray or rinse after use.

For longer distances, wheeled carriers are also available. Safety, above all else, should be your consideration when selecting the right carrier for your cat.
