Our carrier has an adjustable Velcro strip that allows you to tighten the collar snugly around your cat’s neck. Make sure there is enough room to slide one finger only under the collar. Our carrier is roomy, and the cat cannot brace against it to work his way out. Make sure to get the right size so he can stretch.

The bag is made of a tightly woven cotton, so that even if nail tips poke through, nails don’t get stuck. The bag is also very loose-fitting, so it’s difficult for a cat to rake against it like he can on a solid-sided carrier. The bags are also guaranteed. If a cat is ever able to rip a hole in it, you get a replacement.

Tighten the collar a little more, so that one finger only can slide underneath it and there’s no gap he could slide his paw through.

The carriers come in extra-small, small, large and extra-large.

  • Extra-small is for smaller kittens or adults with short bodies and under
    five pounds.
  • Small is for most cats under 10 pounds.
  • Large is for most cats 10 pounds and up.
  • Extra-large is a specialty size for very large cats who are not only heavy, but long and tall. These cats start at 20 lbs. and can range to over 35 lbs.  Big-breed cats such as Maine Coons and Norwegian Forest Cats are examples of cats who may need extra-large.

If you have some cats over and under 10 pounds and you only want one
carrier, get a large. The necklines adjust to the neck of a smaller cat
and extra room is not a problem for him. Extra-Large is not appropriate
for a small cat.

If your cat has a history of accidents in the car, we recommend Acci-Don’t’s, our disposable liners that adhere to the inside of the bag. In many cases however, it’s the crate that’s causing anxiety so bad that cats get sick or have accidents. If so, the Cozy Comfort Carrier could solve the problem.

Typically, we ship orders within two business days via First Class or Priority Mail.  This means that any order in the U.S. should arrive within a week.
