Just to be clear, I had a very specific intention for this bag and it worked like a charm. My cat is everyones favorite cat. Even those that will never have a cat tell me they love mine. With that said, she becomes a true nightmare when its vet time. She loathes her crate and at this point I think the crate is possessed because the cat that goes in completely transforms into something else. It makes every vet trip for me heartbreaking, Im sure beyond stressful for her, and a little embarrassing. I saw the cat bag and though well why not and since my cat likes to be held during car travel, I figured the bag might be a less stress option. Initially she was pretty confused by the idea and that definitely worked in my benefit of catching her off guard but here comes vet day and we all hold our breath. I get her into cat bag, get her in car (holding her while I drive not putting her on the seat since she seemed to squirm more that way), and as I walk up to the vet doors Im waiting for hell to break loose..and it doesnt. Shes looking around and sniffing some, but no growling, no tussling, not a peep coming from my 6 yo cat. Im shocked thinking she is too. Vet examination time (plus shots) and chillest cat on earth. You can tell shes not having a blast but seems pretty content in her bag. The vet can do most of the exam without taking her out and for the rest of the exam and shots, vet was able to just unzip the back and look at what she needed too. Im amazed. Now, would I ever use this bag for travel? Im not sure. Unless you plan on being close to your cat at all times, I wouldnt recommend the bag. I also didnt use the handles at all. I just held my cat like she was in a pillow case with her head sticking out. And that worked perfectly.
I dont say life changing easily. You slip the bag over the cats head and zip it up. It seems that being able to see through the head hole makes them freak out less. We just kneel over the cat so he backs into our legs. After the cat is in the bag it is MUCH easier to put them in a hard or soft sided carrier for the vet. Our 20 pound cat with claws used to claw us up trying get him into his carrier. He is strong and resisted going into the carrier with all his might. Now he just goes right in the carrier if you put him in the bag first. Highly recommended.
My big boy (23 pounds, 2 feet long from head to butt) had to go to the vet for routine vaccines and I had donated my old hard carrier to the shelter. So I took the leap and bought this one. He loves it!
We bought this for vet trips for our big ginger boy. We put it on the couch and let him get his scent all over it before first use. Works great. The cat is calm in it because he can see, and will even stick his head through the collar/hole by himself.
