Dear Designer of the wonderful Cat-in-the-bag carrier, Thank you for creating the Cat-in-the-bag carrier. No longer do I anticipate, or have a stressful time when we need to take our kitties Sheba and Rascal to the vet. Both cats HATED the plastic box carriers that we had used previously. To get Sheba and Rascal in and out of the plastic box carriers was extremely difficult and never went without them putting up a big fight with hissing and biting. I felt horrible putting them through it. If only one kitty needed to go to the vet, I began carrying him or her in my arms wrapped in a towel while my husband would drive. If my husband wasn’t able to take me, or if I had to take both kitties alone it was really terrible. They would have to ride in the plastic box carriers… I now am able to easily and securely hold one kitty in each arm. They’re not able to get loose, and not only do they feel better but I feel better too not having to upset them by using those old plastic box carriers. When I have to take them in the car by myself, it’s no longer a problem thanks to being able to safely secure them by using the seat belt through the carrier’s handle. Another great thing was that the vet was able to get their temperature by simply unzipping the bag… Sheba and Rascal are very spoiled. They’re children and we love them dearly. We care about their health and happiness. Thank you from all of us for the Cat-in-the-bag carrier!
Sid loves his cat bag. I have it folded on the arm of the couch and he insists on sleeping right on top of it.
“I always tell my vet how nice it is, and the vet is always very interested.”
I purchased the cat-in-the-bag at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus, Ohio in August, 2005, and I love it! I rescued my cat from a heavy traffic area, thus she’s scared to death to hear cars driving by when I’m carrying her to and from the car. There were several instances where she almost jumped from my arms while carrying her to the car. Since purchasing this awesome product, I don’t have to worry about my cat getting away, and she seems to feel more secure while riding in the car as well. I thought my cat would not be receptive to the idea, but she doesn’t mind one bit. I would recommend the cat-in-the-bag to all cat owners, it’s really a great concept.
We took Precious to the vet on Monday in her cat bag. She was very relaxed for the entire visit. That is saying a lot since we took our 3 year old dog to the vet at the same time. While we were there, the vet commented on how nice the cat bags are. He told me he used one of his just last week to treat an abscess on the face of a feisty old cat who had been fighting the treatment.
“I bought one of you bags at the last Pet Expo in Columbus, Ohio. Saw it recently on the shelf and said to myself – it was such a great idea but haven’t used it – why did I buy it??
THEN, my cat got a puncture wound on his ear which was looking worse after a few days – I began to use the bag, put a warm wash cloth on his ear 2x a day for 4-5 days and a little antibiotic salve and his ear is now all better. Of course I would have taken him to the vet if it had not improved!! I couldn’t have cared for the ear without your bag! And I was able to do it by myself – otherwise, it would have taken both my husband and I and somebody would have gotten scratched. The cat tolerated the bag well, with a little wiggling here and there but that was it!!!! Thank you so much!!!“
I wanted to let you know that I LOVE these! I originally got one at the National Capital Cat Show a couple of years ago. It was a blessing for my kitty that hates being in a carrier. He would rub his head raw and howl the whole time. Ash took right to the Cat-In-The-Bag. He gets in without fighting and sits quietly through the ride and I like that I can pet his head easily. Everyone at the vet’s office thinks it’s great too and they’ll call people out from the back to look at it. I recently got a five month old kitten and needed to take both cats to a vet appointment and immediately regretted not having a second bag. Now they can both travel in style! Gizmo took right to his bag too, and, even with the large bag, it still works well for him. The neck cinches right up to fit, and its great that it can be adjusted as he grows! Thanks so much for this wonderful invention!
