This cat/dog carrier is perfect for a full grown cat or small dog. My kitty is a little chunky and she fits perfectly. There is a stable bottom so if your cat moves around, the carrier won't roll. The cushy bottom is nice for a cat to knead on and the sides are mesh so she can see outside. Also, a perk is that there are two ways to "load" up your animal--through the top or the side AND it folds almost completely flat for storage . The price is right and it was at my house in 3 days. Perfect!
I purchased 3 of the carriers, after looking for something similar locally. They are just what I was looking for, something small and light-weight to use for a quick run to the vet's office, or to take my cats to the kennel. Since I have 6 house cats, I needed something not too bulky, and these fit the bill perfectly. The price was right on target, as I could purchase 3 of these for just a few dollars more than 2 in store models. I don't know if I would trust it to be used as a carry-on carrier for air travel, but for my purposes they are perfect!
I already had the large kennel cab and was very happy with it. However, on my last flight with my 15 pound terrier, the large kennel would not fit under the seat in front of me without a lot of pushing and shoving. Eventually I got it under, but it meant that the wire on one end had to be pushed forward, making the space for my dog really small. To avoid this, I bought the medium. Like other reviewers noted, it is smaller. However, it easily fits under a plane seat, and there was enough room for my dog to lay down, turn around, and then snuggle in for the 2.5 hour flight. I thought the smaller size actually made him happier because he had less room to "slide around" when I was carrying him. I am very pleased with this.

Our Cat loves her new Cab, she travels with her Daddy on a daily basis. It keeps her warm and safe if the doors of the truck are open. She loves the kneeding carpet and climbed inside as soon as we took it out of the box. When she is at the office with her Daddy and the temperature is to cold, she stays inside the Cat Cab sleeping like a baby.

I've been looking for a soft-sided carrier for a few months. This is by far the best value I've seen. I was glad to see how well it's constructed, and its well-thought out design. It folds perfectly flat for storage. Only thing I'd do differently is to have ordered the large size. The medium is designed for pets 10 lbs. or under. My cat weighs 11.5 lbs. Fortunately, we do not plan to make long trips using this. Still, I'm quite pleased overall, especially by the value.
It is very light and has handles that enables you to carry it two different ways, on the shoulder or with your hand. Best part is when you are in the car and sitting next to the carrier with your cat in it, you can zip back the top of the carrier just so much to allow your hand to go into the carrier and pet your cat.
Why am I writing a review for an item I returned? Because except for the size, it's exactly what I need. This carrier is well made, sturdy, and looks very easy to clean if my carsick-prone cat were to make a mess in it. Though she would fit inside, the space is too small for her to move around, I have just ordered the next size up.
I purchased this item to transport my 10 lb cat across the country on her first flight. The carrier worked perfectly for carry-on animal use and fit easily under the seat in front of me for the flight. Since the design of the carrier doesn't have a tray, I lined the bottom with a piddle-pad just in case the cat had any accidents (turned out to not be necessary). Being able to access her from the top zipper was ideal when I had to take her out and hold her through the airport security metal detector while the carrier went through the baggage scanner and I was able to get her right back inside the carrier quickly and without issue. As the dimensions show, this carrier isn't much bigger than most house cats, so expect a tight fit, but this is more or less what is required for airline animal transport so it worked very well for my needs.

Does the carrier collapse easily? I want it to be sturdy when set up so that it doesn't cave on my kitty.paigesz711 on Aug 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question paigesz711. No, the Petmate Soft-sided Medium Kennel Cab does not collapse easily. Your kitty will not only be ok, but will enjoy the ride. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 22, 2013
In order to collapse it, it has to be upside down. It can;t collapse accidentally, but when you want to put it away, it folds very easily.carolyn11357 on Nov 9, 2013
