Trixie Wicker Cat Basket

Trixie Wicker Cat Basket

Trixie wicker basket with mesh door and handle. Ideal for short journeys and trips to the vet. Also a lovely place to use as a cat cave to snuggle into.

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!

Perfect transporter

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!

Lovely looker

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!

Great Transporter

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.
