If you’re a cat lover, you’re going to love this unique and trendy product that cat owners are going crazy about!
As seen all over the internet, cat backpack carriers are the newest and most convenient form of pet carriers available. Since you wear them on your back, you can carry more things in your arms when traveling or even going to the vet.
Kitty Backpack is the company responsible for these carriers and they have many different styles and colors to choose from. “The Navigator”, which is their best seller, has a full transparent window that allows your cat to see the world around you. “The Space Kitty” is another popular model, which will literally make your cat look and feel like an astronaut with its unique bubble window design.
Are these backpacks adorable or what? I know what you’re probably thinking: are these even safe for pets? According to the company’s website, there are many ventilation holes and breathable mesh that allows your cat to breath. They are cat lovers, and would never sell anything that your furry companion couldn’t breathe in. Each backpack even has a clip that can attach to your cat’s harness or collar, which ensures they won’t be able to escape.
Adventuring with your cat has never been easier! People from all over the world have enjoyed a wide range of activities with these cat backpacks. You can go hiking, bike riding, exploring, and so much more! Bring your cat to a cafe on a rainy day or to the beach on a beautiful day, the possibilities are endless.
While many people only use these carriers when bringing their cat to the vet, they are actually airline approved so you can bring your pet with you on airplanes! Whether you are going on a family vacation or backpacking the world, you can bring your cat with you. Although most major airlines allow these carriers, it’s important to check with each individual airline to make sure they meet the correct dimension requirements.
Although they are mainly for cats, there’s no reason why your small dog or other animal can’t enjoy one of these backpacks as well. I’ve seen pictures of Chihuahuas, Guinea Pigs, and Rabbits using these awesome bags.
These carriers are extremely comfortable for both you and your pet. The area that is placed along your back is padded, so you won’t get sore on long walks. The shoulder straps are adjustable which is perfect for people of all sizes. Your cat will love it too! There’s a flat and soft area for your cat to sit or lay down.
Many of the backpacks are recommended for animals up to 13 pounds, but they do have options if your cat is larger than that. Although not very many cats are this large, it’s nice to know that Kitty Backpack is accommodating of larger cats. I’ve even seen people stuff two cats inside of one backpack!
I recently got one of these carriers and my cat loves it so far! I bought “The Space Kitty” and have no regrets. What’s really nice about this model is that there are three different attachments that can replace the bubble window. You can even remove the bubble so your cat can hang out the window! My cat loves to stick her head out and admire the scenery around her when going on long walks through the forest.
If you’re planning on buying one of these cat backpacks, there are a few things you should know.
First, if you bring your cat out of the house for a long time, you should always bring some water and food for them. I have a portable water bowl so my cat can have water on hot days. It’s not safe to leave the house for long periods of time without one. You definitely don’t want your them to get dehydrated. If your cat isn’t used to going outside, you may want to avoid bringing them outside on really hot days altogether. Cats can only sweat through their paws, so they have a really hard time cooling off.
Also, it may take some time for your cat to get used to the carrier. Cats are very territorial, so they are often cautious at first when it comes to new things. If you set up the backpack in your house for a few days, they can familiarize themselves with the backpack’s scent. I’ve found putting one of your shirts inside will make them more comfortable as well.
Ever since I purchased one, I’ve completely stopped using my old cat carrier. It’s so convenient being able to wear it on my back, and it’s incredibly easy to travel in the car with. Although I haven’t gone on any long adventures yet, I did bring my beloved cat on an airplane. Bringing her through the airport while I wheeled luggage was really easy. I would recommend a cat backpack to anyone!
You have to admit, these are definitely superior to your traditional cat carrier! What do you think? Would you buy one of these for your cat?
