Bought this for my Maine coon and she's 5.49 kilos so it should cope with her weight easily, within one use of a trip to the vets the internal metal rods have come loose and it's now dangerous for me to use. Total waste of money.
Not secure to transport animals !
Although otherwise a nice product, the top is fastened by a peice of Velcro and a zip either side that have no 'stop'. My cat pushed her paw past the Velcro, was able to push the zips back with the force of her head and escaped into my moving car....under the pedals whilst I was on the motorway!
I would not recommend this product if you need your pet to be secure inside !
Please do not buy this for transporting a cat!!!!!!
A quality item at a good price. But the design is flawed. Fastens at the top with two zips (absolutely fine) and is then closed with a velcro tab. A quick push and your cat will be out of this in a flash. Please do not risk it. May well be fine for dogs but totally unsafe for cats.
My kitten got easily out of it
I wish I had seen all the reviews and not bought this item! Our kitten got out of it in the space of 10 seconds.
My cat got out, too.
My fully grown cat can easily escape from this bag when it is closed and secured. The gap where the fastener is is too large. I do still have this bag because I don't have room to store a full size plastic carrier. However, I do have to make sure I secure the opening with strong masking tape the second I get my cat in the carrier or I have to spend another five minutes catching him again.
My cat can escape from this
Despite securing the zip handle at the top and tying it tightly through the loop, my cat can easily escape. I discovered this whilst driving so was not best pleased. In fairness, the carrier is good value for money but not very useful if you have a lively cat.
Poor Quality item
The 1 rating is for the idea alone. On receipt one of the metal supporting bars had already burst through the fabric, and when it was used for the first time the "detachable" shoulder strap became permanently detached when it broke after 10 minutes carrying a small cat.
