Fortunately my other one opens at the top, so I use that one for Maisie and the older one for Zephyr, who usually goes in voluntarily because his curiosity gets the better of him.

Next time I'm in the market for a carrier, I would gladly spend more money to get one that opened at the top, because it's so much more useful!

I've always had hard-sided carriers. I'm interested in the soft ones, but I'd like to try one out to see how I like it before I commit to it. Maybe when one of my current carriers wears out I'll take the plunge.

Actually this one looks like its open in the top with just a separate canopy for shade; for a dog....a cat would jump out of that. You should get one that zips the cat in completely with the nylon mesh windows to look out. You certainly want one that the cat is secure in and can't get out. Good luck in finding a cat friend.

Maybe try this w/the one cat. I watch all the animal shows and once they were trying to catch all the feral cats and put them in the hard carrier with the gate in front....what they did was turn the carrier on the side (in other words, the gate was on the top and they dropped the cat in the carrier closed the gate and that was it....Do you think that would help you?

I've actually tried that, the problem is he wedges his legs in the opening. I could force him in, but I'm not positive I could do it without hurting him. It would be worth the risk if there was an emergency (house burning down, etc.) but not so much when I can just put him in the other carrier.

Thanks for the suggestion anyway, though - it's a good one that may work for someone else who is reading this.

I've looked around for strollers to fit BIG and multiple cats. Finally, found this pet jogger. We take our 2 Mainers out in this with harness and leash on. It also folds up easily for storage or travel.

Lily, that is perfect. Just what I was looking for, one that will work for jogging when I get there. What brand is this one?

Hi! I purchased the pet jogger at Aosom.com,the source for all your Outdoor,Home Office,Fitness,Party Tent and Pet Supply needs. (pronounced awe-some). They have 3 colors to choose from and free shipping in the USA. It's about $160. They have promo codes from time to time. Well worth the money. Just make sure it's the one for pets and not for human babies cuz they've got both.

It also converts to a trailer for a bike so if you ride a bike, you can take your kitties along.
