I bought this carrier because my cats have gotten to be too large for the dog carriers available in the stores. My one cat had seizures, and the vet said he would do best in the fabric carriers with the mesh on all sides rather than the hard plastic ones. But the largest Sherpa(-like) ones in the stores barely fit my largest cats. So I ordered this carrier. I read the other reviews saying that the carriers ran large, so I ordered a Medium, which carried 30 pounds, because the largest Sherpa said it carried something in the high 20s. This carrier is SO much bigger than the Sherpa. Really, the issue is it is so much TALLER than the other fabric carriers. There is nothing comparable to it in pet stores. It is exactly what I wanted; I just need it to be about half that height and maybe a little shorter in length. I will probably need to order new ones that are of a smaller size. :( But it is built sturdy and meets everything else I wanted; there is mesh all around, and it will keep my cats happy. :)
Love tis carrier! Asked for black, came in yellow but a great color so I kept it. Light weigh and comfortable for my kitty. Lots of room for her(12 lbs)
When you take this out of the box it looks like the only thing that would fit in it would be a lizard or snake....but when you unzip it, the rest of it is inside. Mine didn't come with directions and it took awhile to figure out how to put it together. When together, there is plenty of room for a cat or small dog. There is a pocket on one side that is about 6 "x 7", an inside safety cord with a collar clamp on the end that you can attach to the pet's collar, a mesh zippered door on the opposite side from the pocket, a fabric carry handle, a fabric (tough) shoulder strap and the hard plastic fold down pull handle. Besides having the mesh door, there are 12 large vent holes on the top. The pull handle attaches to the carrier by 2 fabric pieces with a zipper so you can carry it instead of pulling it. Nifty. When the pull handle is extended without the carrier, it looks like a dolly that you use to move heavy boxes etc. Also, on the bottom of the middle part of the carrier there are 4 Velcro strips to fasten it securely to the pull handle bottom (the flat dolly looking part). I am sure it will be perfect for my 2 cats and my Chihuahua. I am leaving it all put together because if I needed to go to the vets in a hurry, I know I would get frustrated putting it back together.
