It’s empty in here!
bought to replace material iglo because i couldn't clean it properly. perfect for my nervous cat who likes to stay in the greenhouse in the garden, she went straight in and i can clean it easy
Very cumbersome. Vet was not impressed, especially when fiddling with the toggle with a crazy cat involved. Took the gate off and now a fixture in the living room. Has only been used once. Still hoping.
Looked lovely, arrived fine. Cats seemed happy with it. Used it one day later to take a cat to the vet, and the entire bottom dropped out. Fortunately they were unharmed and the door was closed. Had to borrow a carrier to get him home. Very upset. Would not encourage anyone to buy.
Two new cats to collect and bring home... after reading lots of reviews chose these specifically because they could be both travelling and cosy bed. A bit of carpet and the cats totally agree, it was an excellent choice (lucky as I bought two for when they're older)
I ordered this with the intention of using it for longer car journeys, as the carrier we had already was a little small. As soon as i got it home BamBam was straight in there, plenty of room for him to stand, sit and move around, even with a bath towel folded up as a bed- it's perfect! He's an average size cat, around 4.5kg, not worried about the security of the door either as the pin was stiff to get out. Not tried it yet in the car but i'm sure it will be fine!
Ordered two Trixie Whicker cat basket carriers to transport our two cats as we are moving home. Ordered on Sunday they arrived today. Perfect size for our adult cats and super value for money. Very impressed with the service and quality. Thank you
Very spacious and sturdy also the door is very tough metal with a gate piece that fits very snuggly over the end before you put the toggle in. A few sharp ends which you would expect being wicker, but easily clipped shorter, vet bedding or a pet cushion would solve any other sharp bits. Really great value, it will last for years....the cats and I are thrilled
I bought this for my cat Mitzilie which was ideal for trips BUT it ended up my daughters 2 chihuhuas loved it (its roomy) and i bought myself another but i have to say 3yrs later and lots of use with my daughters two little dogs and its still going strong ! Fantastic quality and looks very nice
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
This is not practical or small. It is bulky and both of my cats refuse to use it. Very disappointed.
Lovely basket but the ends of wicker are very sharp and can easily injure cat. Not used for that reason, otherwise looks lovely.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
Love this cat basket my cat loves it too I would definitely recommend this if you want a good affordable cat basket/bed.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!!!
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...
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!
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!
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
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.
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.
