lovley to look at but very poor product. First time i used it the kitten ended up on the dashboard.Second time i used it i tied it but still kitty still managed to get out and ended up on the dashboard so good bye i put it in the bin
Too big and my cat hates it!
This is not practical or small. It is bulky and both of my cats refuse to use it. Very disappointed.

Very sharp ends inside
Lovely basket but the ends of wicker are very sharp and can easily injure cat. Not used for that reason, otherwise looks lovely.

Superb carrier and bed!
Bought 2 of these and both my cats love them. Great to transport and comfy wee bed too. Excellent!
My cat put its paw through and lifted up the toggle on the door and let himself out. Had I been driving to the vets at the time this could have been a disaster. I really do not recommend this product it is not fit for the purpose. Very disappointed a waste of money.
Excellent for cat transport and as a bed
We used this basket to pick up our 2 kittens. Although it is excellent as a carrier (both cats ready curl up in there together despite it being a little tight for them now), my cats also use it as a bed / hidey hole and it is looks great in the corner of my lounge. No other bed I have bought them has gotten so much use. When we do go to the vet, both cats willing walk into the basket when I call them.
Brilliant product and very stylish
I bought this to transport our cat to the vets and also as a hiding space in the house. I loved the classic look of it as opposed to the modern plastic carriers available. It's very sturdy, our cat, who is quite small-framed, has lots of room in it, so I'd be confident that it fits a larger cat as well. Word of warning, not really suitable for young kittens, as we had a near escape in the car before! The wire grate at the front is quite spacious and before we knew it the little tyke had her head through it!! Other than that perfect for transport a grown cat and we always get comments on how lovely it looks at the vet's.

We purchased one of these some time ago and we have used for various cats at various ages. It's amazing. We have put two kittens in there and we have put an adult cat in it. Its safe, secure and very easy to use. Its a bargain at the price and I would say very good value. Very safe. Go on grab a bargain.
Have been looking for a new transporter for my cat as he hates his current crate. Found this, loved the look of it and as he's very partial to his igloo shaped bed thought it would be ideal. I unpacked it less than an hour ago and he is now curled up asleep in it! Fingers crossed he still loves it when it's time to visit the vet!
This is the perfect transporter for my two 8 month old Siamese cats. I used to have problems getting my previous cat to go into the plastic boxes, but they love this. They sleep in it a lot, so serves 2 purposes, and it's big enough for the 2 of them. I put a cushion at the bottom and a blanket, you definitely need that as it's a bit spikey otherwise. Looks nice too.
Really good for cats and dogs
I originally bought this as a cat carrier for our two cats, who both fot in together very nicely. It was ideal for that purpose. Now we have a puppy and it's great for transporting him too, he also sleeps in it and settles down really comfortably in it (wih the addition of a cushion and blanket). It's one of the most useful items Ive bought and with 2 cats and 2 dogs Ive bought quite a lot of stuff!
Wicker cat basket
I bought this for my cat to take her to the vet in, but unfortunately it was so badly made that all the pieces of cane were sticking out extremely sharply inside the basket, all along the bottom, sides and top, and despite trying to cut most of them down and putting a blanket inside it, it was still impossible to use without severely wounding my cat. Zooplus was very good about refunding me, and I have seen that a lot of other people have given positive reviews so I am wondering whether to get another one in case this was a one-off? But people do need to be warned to check how sharp it is inside as could be very dangerous otherwise!

Within fifteen minutes of this arriving my cat Oliver was inside, curled up fast asleep. I have high hopes of not having any trouble getting him to the vets in future!
The best cat basket!
Bought this basket to replace the usual rectangular shaped plastic one, as my cat was getting cramped during travel. This one is brilliant - it looks much nicer, makes travel less scary for him, gives him room to arch his back and stretch and generally seems more comfortable for him. Fits perfectly into any seat in the car too. Easy to carry and the wicker has stood the test of time. Before buying I had wondered if the single front opening might be a problem with getting him into the basket, but if anything it's been easier than with the old one which had both front and top openings, I think because the shape of the basket allows him to enter it less awkwardly. Very glad I bought it!
Fabulous very happy
Love this cat basket my cat loves it too I would definitely recommend this if you want a good affordable cat basket/bed.

Travel in Style!
This is a lovely basket.It is well made and larger than i expected and I am hoping that if my kitten is not too traumatised with her vet visit she will use it as a posh place to sleep!
All round excellent product!
What a great idea - my cats both HATE journeys in the car and love kipping in small tucked up spaces. This combines that feeling of a bed in a carry case. TIP - get your cat used to it as a comfy new bed for at least a week before you use it as a carry case so they think positively about it - this worked a treat! I feared they would never go in again after their first journey, but quite the opposite, they still love them and now find them comforting for their journey. I've got 2 maine coons so bought one each, they're a great size for them and well made - perfectly capable of carrying a 6kg cat. In the house they like them hidden under the table or behind a chair, the metal door is easily removed for this. Definitely purchase the trixie fleece bed to go inside, perfect fit! Plus they look great in my house, all round excellent product. So glad I bought them! 2 very happy cats!
I purchased this about 6mths ago and my cat Percy is happy to go in it to be transported around. He can see 360 degrees so I think he doesnt feel trapped like other plastic transporters. I have managed to take the front off too and can reconnect when needed. Its a nice piece to have in the house too and he uses it now and again for a extra bed.
Excellent cat basket
We purchased this basket for our two new Birman kittens together with the Trixie bed. My kittens couldn't wait to get into the basket and fell in love with it straight away. I'm just about to order another as I know when they get a bit older they will definitely fight over it.
Light, pretty, perfect fit for the Trixie Cuddly Cat Bed
Lovely dual purpose basket. Makes a lovely cat basket with the Trixie Cuddly Cat Bed fitting perfectly. You can bend the iron gate back to the side to make it a welcoming open fronted bedroom for the cat. Very good value.

Travel with Style
I bought this beautiful wicker carrier for my 7 week old kitten. I want him traveling in style when I take him to the vet. Although it’s very stylish it definitely needs a soft blanket on the base for that extra comfort. Its fits nicely in the passenger seat and you can watch him through the bars driving to the vet. Now he is 3 months old and I have detached the front bars and use it for a sleeping hut, it looks so lovely in a corner. I definitely recommended this product, thank you Zooplus.
My cat loves it!
We recently purchased Trixie Wicker Cat Basket as we needed to take our newly acquired kitty to a vet. We went for this basket as we needed something we can keep in the kitchen for the cat to sleep in. (Bog standard plastic one does not look very pretty to have it around you...) Not sure how the cat will like it, but I did not have to worry. She loves going into the basket at night, and the basket is really sturdy - there was no problem when we carried it to the vet the other day. And great price is added bonus, too!
My Devon Rexes LOVE This!
Have just purchased a second wicker basket for rexes and kittens, multi functional whether transporting or using as a cosy den, hideout. Would recommend cushion and cosy blanket inside. Superior quality, style AND value from Zooplus!
06/09/12 |Amanda Kirkpatrick
I now have 2 of these baskets although I have no cats! I have two small dogs who, after I removed the grill at the front and included a cushion and blanket, use these as their beds. They love them as they are like a wee safe den for them and with being wicker I have to say, its cosy when needed but also well ventiliated meaning it can be cool for them during the summer months. Price is good too, although living in Northern Ireland I've had to pay a surcharge, I wouldn't hesitate in buying this as it really is great quality and value and will last a very long time for either cat or dog! Excellent product!
Fantastic, Stylish and practical
I have now purchased TWO of these fantastic carriers for my Ragdoll kittens Teddy & Monty. They are really well made, secure for your pet, have a nice large window on the front so your kitty can clearly see you while they are safely inside and it is stylish and large enough for Ragdolls. I have had so many comments on this when I have taken my kittens to the vets! Fantastic value for money!!!
Max loves it
We thought we would just use this for transporting our kitten to the vet, but he loves to play in it and relax in it too. We have tied his favourite toy spider so it dangles from the handle and he likes to lie on his back in the basket, wrestling with spider. It's really good quality and a fair price.
I always wonder with purchases I make for my cat, will this one be a waste of money, will he turn his nose up and never use it? But this was a hit as soon as I got it out of the box! (where as usually he would prefer the box itself) Barni now sleeps in his wicker basket every night and happily jumps in for vet trips or journeys to the cattery. I would definitely buy another should this ever wear out...
My Devon Rexes LOVE this carrier
Purchased to transport mum and three 9wk old kittens to vet for injections with room to spare !!! My two 1yr old rexes fit easily in this carrier together also. Regarding sharp bits - this is indicitive of willow - I would always use cushion and blanket for comfort. Superior style, quality and value...Thanks Zooplus!
28/11/11 |Cat Lover
This carrier is amazing! arrived in very good time. it is REALLY gorgeous and huge it is oval shaped but its almost better that way. i was only going to use it as a carrier but its so pretty im going to use it as my cats bed aswell which is cheaper then buying two separate things. its really surprised me with how amazing it is thankyou zooplus for selling this amazing product!

Wicker cat basket
This was a lot bigger than expected and I agree that it needs a cushion as there are lots of spiky bits on the inside. My cat doesn't want to go in it but I bought it to collect my new kitten so let's hope she likes it
16/09/11 |shirley hambelton
one of my two cats makes a big fuss in travelling, but he is much happier now he is in one of these attractive baskets, both of them can see out better, I can also just get my hand through to pet them.......they are well made and much nicer than the plastic ones they had previously. Easier to pop kitty in - also if you line with newspaper and blankets (in case of the odd widdle!)they are very safe and cosy.
28/07/11 |Janet Harnblow
This basket is spacious and very attractive to have in room as a bed.i have three kittens and they play chase makes a perfect place to hide. Good size pet carrier as well. Will fit at least 2 cats to go to the vets. Good all rounder buy it and see.

Don't buy it to use for vet trips.
I bought the large basket for my 2 new Ragdoll kittens to collect from the breeder and intending to use as their carrier. As they got bigger I knew I would need another but I decided to steer clear of this Trixie Wicker Basket. While they love the basket and happily sleep in it all day, it is extremely cumbersome and not at all ideal for any travel. The handle is small, the basket quite large and round, plus my cats like to move around in the basket, making the task much more difficult. Do buy this product if you want to give your cats a stylish sleep spot. If you are looking for a convenient travel bag I strongly suggest the SturdiBag.
could not believe the size of this.. seriously its huge! my 6 month old kitten presley loved it, then we got an 8 month old siemese kitten memphis (yes Elvis fan here) and they both snuggle up in it with plenty of room. the base had a few sticky out bits but nothing to bad , i just put an old cushion down with a pretty blanket covering it and it looks lovely! they actually love travelling in it, so no probs getting them to the vets! Presley HATED the old plastic one i had!
This carrier can also be used as a bed or a chill out area. My kitten took to it straight away and because he often snoozes in it in the afternoons it makes trips to the vet that bit more familiar for him and comfy. It's sturdy and well built and because of the ample space inside I expect it to last for years.
This carrier is seriously big!
This carrier is seriously big! There is room for three full size cats with ease. Another review said they got a smaller one. Well, so far I can't find a smaller one advertised. The door is removable, so it can be used as a den or a carrier. Having read another review, I saw mention of sharp edges inside. So I looked at mine and must agree. I have now cut a rubber backed car mat to fit the floor inside. The spikes can't get through the rubber, but being so sharp may well get through material. I think because my cat can see through the wicker, she finds it far less scary or intimidating than a closed sided carrier. It is beautifully made by an obvious craftsman and bearing in mind the above provisos, I would certainly recommend it to my friends. Oh and I did say it was big. Seriously big!!!
22/10/10 |Caroline James
Bigger than I expected, plenty of room for my kitten to sit upright in it. Slightly oval in shape, wider than it is deep, there is plenty of space inside for a 4 month kitten and a small adult cat to lie curled round at each side without touching in the middle! My only gripe - the door was fitted slightly off centre so there is a slight gap one side of the round hole before the round door begins but this is purely cosmetic and doesn't affect the use at all. Perfect for a cat bed and a nice size for using as a travel basket. Great!
ordered the item on Saturday morning, arrived by Weds afternoon...just in time to pik up my 2 new kittens on the thurs.....they took to it well....couldnt get them out of while they were still nervous...Would definitely recommend this item AND the site
27/09/10 |Miss A Leach
Great value and much nicer than plastic carriers
I bought this carrier for our Kitten for her first trip to the vets for her injections. It is very spacious and i could fit my fingers through the bars to comfort her when she got a bit nervous. The door can be removed so it doubles up as a very attractive cat bed. Probably not suitable for tiny Kittens as the gaps in the bars are fairly wide but at 9wks her head was too big to fit through!! Great value for money and very quick delivery thanks
Great but watch for sharp bits
My cat adores it, went straight in it after I'd dealt with LOTS of sharp ends inside it! Seriously had to trim them and put many strips of clear strong parcel tape over anything still a bit 'pokey' inside, which sorted it no probs. Otherwise its total hit with a boisterous big 4 yr old 'ex-tom'. You can play good games too with 'dangling' toys, he can see them from inside if you move them on the outside of basket.
Excellent value for money.. My cat had trip to vet recently for dental work..even the nurses remarked on it..said she really was travelling in style!! She loves it,even sleeps in it during day..worth every penny...
It is lovely. Looks wonderful sitting in a room and great for visits to the vet. I bought the small one and it's the perfect size, even for a large cat. Get it you will be very pleased.

Wicker Cat Basket
Excellent buy, Tilley my 12 week old Maine Coon was brought home from the breeder in this basket and she has used it as her bed ever since.
This is a fantastic carrier for our cat Boo, she loves it. It's always a good sign when your cat volunteers to get in the carrier when you get it out instead of having to force her into one! Boo uses ours to nap in when it's left in the corner of the room. The vet always knows which is our carrier too because it's so posh! As already mentioned on here, just be careful when buying for a kitten as the front bars are wide enough for a tiny cat to fit through if it really wants to.... Highly recommended though.
Excellent & a bargain!
I love this carrier and so does my kitten, Spot. Fantastic for short journeys and doubles up as a great resting place afterwards, he loves it, as do I! Only negative is that it does need a cushion at the bottom, but sufficing that it's fantastic!
A cat carrier and den in one - a perfect product. When using it as a cat carrier I do support the whole basket rather than carry it by the handle. Had if for a couple of years and my cat loves sleeping in the den as it makes her feel secure whilst at the same time being able to peek through the wicker(she prefers it over the cuddle den Minou we recently bought). Put an ordinary pillow in it for super comfort.

Dora my cat hated her plastic carry basket but loves this one!
Not so good for small cats
Bought the largest size so I could fit both my cats in, unfortunately due to the design of the door and shape of the carrier, it left gaps big enough that I was worried my (admittedly very small) female cat would be able to get out. The design of the hinges is also different from the picture, (faux?) leather type straps with flimsy buckles, which my cats liked to try and chew from the inside, as well as being rather fiddly to close. Pity, as it's an attractive carrier, although it did have a fair few sharp ends that needed trimming, and both cats seemed to find it quite fascinating when it arrived, happily Zooplus where very good and arranged a courier to pick up and return the item.
Our cat loves it...
The first night I put a few of her toys by it, she slept in it and has done every night since. Well made. Front grill is detachable. A great buy.
24/05/09 |A Majewska
Worth every penny, good quality and my russian blue kitten loves it!!! Fast delivery.
14/05/09 |R J Brooke BSc
This makes a lovely house for your cat or kitten. Mine uses hers daily. Very good value. She has been using hers for two years.
When the product arrived I took it out of the box, opened up the door and left the room to get a blanket for the floor of the carrier - by the time I got back to the room my little man was curled up inside and dozing off! Never seen anything like it - normally takes a week for him to get used to anything new
This basket/carrier really is superb. Great for trips to the vets and makes a very fine and cosy cat bed in my computer room too! Excellent value for money!
Best ever carri!er
My cats have one each and they are great for trips to the vet, etc. and they double as cozy beds at home. My cats love them!

WICKER CAT BASKET
I had purchase this to carry my cat to the vet's , but he loves it so much, itnow sits by the fire place, and it's used as his bed. FANTISTIC PRODUCT, GREAT BUY
This basket is gorgeous and is excellent as a cat carrier as well as a cat bed. The door can be removed and it sits nicely in the corner of our living room, looking more like a piece of furniture than a carrier! The only issue I had with it is that there are a few straggly bits of wicker here and there which could jab your cat or kitten however, these can be easily snapped off with no adverse effect on the look of the basket. All in all, a really good looking, practical cat carrier that everyone with a cat should own!!
absolutely perfect for bringing my two kittens to the vet and they love playing in it. Very sturdy
I completely agree
The basket doubles up perfectly for a carrier and the kittens love sleeping in it as well as climbing on it. It also makes for a very good scratching post on occasions!

The Cat's Whiskers!!
We are thrilled to have this lovely carrier - it is big enough for both of our children! They seem to love it too, as they haven't left it alone since it arrived! Hopefully rhey will be as keen once they have journeyed to the V-E-T-s in it!!!
Stylish cat basket!
I knew the second I saw this basket that it was the one for my BSH Kitten, however, I ordered the lagest one, and it really is huge!! It looks twice the size of the smaller one! Very hard to get in the car! I would say more for a small dog not cat, Zooplus were great though they sent me the replacement smaller one, which came very quick, and is perfect for her! And would look great in any home! dont hesitate.. buy it!!
couldnt wish for better,they like sleeping in it and great for transport to the vets!!
Our 2 kittens love sleeping in this basket - very good value for money!
I purchased this basket from Zooplus and am so pleased with it! It is really good quality, excellent size and very stylish. The same basket sells for more than double in my local pet store. Also very quick delivery, Thanks.
21/08/07 |Catriona McLeod
I purchased this basket for my kitten Albion and was very pleased with the quality and the overall look of it. Even the vet commented that it was a very classy cat basket. The front "cage" part can be removed and with a wee bit cushion and a blanket in the bottom it can be used as a cat bed - luxury! It really looks fab!
17/06/07 |S Cottam
I am very pleased with this carrier. It is well made and will be great for trips to the vets. My kitten has already taken a liking to it and is fast asleep in it right now! The delivery time was great, and as I will be ordering more items from zooplus as the service is first class.
14/04/07 |linda livermore
This is such good quality and at least £12 cheaper than I can buy at our local pet shops
13/03/07 |amanda wallington
The wicker carrier is really good it is cat shaped for the perfect fit, However the catch is not very good and mine has fallen off. Do you know where I can get a new catch from? the maker or suppliers address/phone number would be helpful. thank you
Good -but watch the fastener
Have both sizes, large one is great for carrying 2 cats together but can be a bit heavy. They look great but the fastener on the large one is a bit tricky sometimes- watch out your moggies don't escape!
lovely cat basket
really good and snug baskets, my cats are in first rate transportation. They are ultra stylish too.
