The durable plastic shell of this pet kennel from Petmate provides stability while a unique top load door provides convenience. This kennel boasts metal doors and sloping sides to prevent cutting off ventilation when placed flush against another surface.

Ensure your pet's optimal security during transport with this medium-sized kennel. The coated metal handle allows you to comfortably carry your pet, while durable plastic construction protects your pet from external irritants, such as groceries or other items positioned in your car, that could fall on your dog or cat during transit. Keep your pet safe and contained while traveling with this deluxe kennel from Petmate. The kennel has a two-door design, making it easy to load reluctant pets, and you can remove the top for easy cleaning. This kennel is sized to fit a cat or small dog and has a slide and spring latch to ensure it stays shut when pets paw at the gate.

  • Great cat carrier
    Verified Purchase

    This is the second Petmate cat carrier I have owned. I like the opening in the top. It makes it so much easier to put a cat in the carrier. I only use it going to vet appointments. I don't know how it would work traveling on an airline. The top latches could come open if not secured.

  • Wonderful Carrier!
    Verified Purchase

    I have two of these carriers and they work perfectly for my two cats! No more struggler to get the cats inside - that top door Is genius! I lined mine with a small piece of throw rug and placed a cat bed on top. Cats seem very comfy on their ride to the vet. Highly recommend (and the price here is fantastic compared to the large pet stores!)

  • So glad I bought the deluxe
    Verified Purchase

    I am a dog trainer and have seen and used a lot of crates. However my own personal crates have only been for big dogs. I have the extra large model and this is exactly a mini version except the small one has a top opening. I am so glad I got the one with the open on top feature especially for this small dog I have now. I release him from the crate from the front door, as you would do for a larger crate, but when I put him in I always use the top opening.

  • Top opening carriers are the best
    Verified Purchase

    I have bought many of these, as I do cat rescue. I have learned that the locks can open easily and I'll use cable ties to put in the holes of the locks to secure them.

  • Great pet carrier
    Verified Purchase

    I really like this pet carrier! It's a nice sturdy design and I like that it has the metal cage door on the top instead of plastic like others...you can feel it is sturdy and I don't worry about it opening on me.

  • Easy loading carrier that cats love.
    Verified Purchase

    Best cat carrier on the market. Only problem is that the top door must be securely latched when carrying a cat in this carrier. Latches have been known to become loose with time. I even got some once that came loose. But you can't beat the advantage that cats are easy to load into this top loading carrier. The size I purchased is much better than the small things they now sell in pet stores.

  • Great carrier for hard to handle pets
    Verified Purchase

    I have used this carrier several times for my feral cat. The top access door is great for the vet and less traumatic for the cat. It has held up well and I still have it for future use.

  • Great carrier!
    Verified Purchase

    Always so much easier to put kitty in through a top-loading carrier. The top door could open back more though it works fine. All-plastic is good as I use a bleach/water solution to clean and my metal one is rusting from the solution (I leave it on for about 10 minutes before rinsing and sometimes I forget for a while so it rusts...).

  • The BEST Cat Carrier
    Verified Purchase

    We purchased one of these cat carriers about 10 years ago. They are great for putting a cat that doesn't want to be put in a carrier IN the carrier! The top opening is the secret. It is much easier to pop one of your fur babies in through the top than to push them through the side door. We liked this so much that we bought four more-one for each cat. We put these in our safe room (we live in Oklahoma-Tornado Alley) and just bring them out in the spring and have them ready to get our cats in them quickly when we need to. This carrier is very sturdy-metal doors that close and lock quickly. This is an excellent carrier for tiny dogs as well. I had a had time finding the last 2 of these, but thankfully, was able to purchase them on Overstock for a great price. I'm so glad I did!

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Do you have this carrier in a small? If so, what color is it? Thanks. I used to get the bigger carriers thinking they would be more comfortable for my cats and sometimes used them for 2 or 3 cats during multiple appointments. Some of my pets love to use them for their beds. As every size larger is heavier and bulkier to carry, and I am getting older, I have started using the xs or small sizes. I really like this model if you can find me a small or extra small and the colors are as pretty as the dark blue or maroon. This model is much lighter than other top entry carriers. Every pound matters. Thanks!"

    • A:

      The item is not available.

  • Q:

    "Why did you choose this product?"

    • A:

      already have one but it is now strictly for sick cats and I need one for routine vet trips for healthy kitties

    • A:


    • A:

      I have one of these two-door deluxe kennels already and I needed another. Great product. Room for a 18lb cat.

    • A:

      Good product for affordable price.

    • A:

      need carrier for cat

    • A:

      Have others like it & it's the only one with top door for easy kitty in & kitty out. Is great quality...allows for bolts to have utmost security for travel. Will be moving & need more carriers to move my cats.

    • A:

      I left one kennel off my previous order

    • A:

      I chose this carrier because I saw a lady with it at my vet`s office and really liked the top loader. It gives the kitties more room to look out as well without feeling so enclosed. They can see me when I drive them too.

    • A:

      Fits my pet to a "T".

    • A:

      This will be given to my daughter who also was looking for this exact crate - which we could no longer find in the pet stores.

    • A:

      Like the plastic sides,the size is rght for my pets,and reasonable price

    • A:

      I already own two and they are great. The one I'm ordering today is for my brother's cat!

    • A:

      love the top opening

    • A:

      I have one now and I love it. Two of my cats are rescues, they were feral. I can pet them but they don't like being held. It is convenient to be able to "drop" them in the top of the carrier. Trying to push a struggling cat in the side door can be very tricky!

    • A:

      Best ever carrier for cats, especially rescue cats who are often being transported by people they don't know well. So sorry it is no longer made. The newer versions don't measure up.

  • Q:

    "Is this ok for a 30 pd dog? Came up in search, but looks small. My puppy really wants a top loader."

    • A:

      Hello Katanya, I hope your day is going well. The kennel has a tag saying up to 15 pounds. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • Q:

    "Can you tell me which one of the crates would hold a 6-8 lb dog giving room to turn around? Thanks S"

    • A:

      Hello Sharon R., a small dog could turn around in this cage but it may be too small for extended lengths of time. I would recommend Item# 12307340 as an larger option. Please let us know if you have additional questions. Thanks for shopping with us.

  • Q:

    "Is this carrier heavy?"

    • A:

      Hello berardi, no this is less than 5 pounds. Have a great day!

    • A:

      I definitely would not describe it as heavy, but it is sturdy & feels secure & well made.

    • A:

      Not heavy @ all. Very sturdy.
