Cat Collars & Transport
Help your cat explore the world!
Take your feline friend on all of your travels! Many cat owners find that using a cat carrier makes journeys easier and relaxing for their cats - whether it is just a short trip to the vets or a longer journey by car, train or plane. The range of designs at zooplus UK offers comfort with both small and large cat carriers, ensuring that your pet has plenty of space and is happy on their travels. Here you can also find collars, which allow your cat to roam free without worrying about them going missing!
Why should I get my cat a collar?
A cat collar is a great way to identify your feline, an ideal choice for outdoor cats that are liable to go missing. If your cat gets lost when out and about, a collar and tag can ensure a safe return. Here at zooplus you can find a great range of collars, including leather and fabric designs, patterned options and even reflective cat collars to allow easy visibility at night.

What different kinds of cat carrier can be found at zooplus?
Soft cat carriers
Soft cat carriers offer a safe way to transport your cat when travelling locally. Soft cat carriers are particularly warm as they often come with extra padding, so cats find them very cosy and love curling up inside! Most designs can be folded up easily, which is useful for storing your soft cat carrier in the car. At zooplus, we also have a selection of cat bags, so your feline friend can be transported in a cat carrier backpack or shoulder bag!
Traditional and stylish, the selection of wicker cat baskets at zooplus will definitely keep even the fussiest kitten happy! The grab-handle design makes the cat carrier easy to transport and the barred door will keep your cat safe and secure inside. Pop your cat's favourite cuddly blanket inside for added comfort and you are good to go! Wicker cat baskets are ideal for shorter trips or quick journeys to the vets.
Plastic cat carriers
Plastic cat carriers tend to be more durable than the other designs; they are more suited to long distances. Plastic cat carriers come in a variety of different sizes, so it is best to measure your cat first before purchasing. Cat carriers should be high enough to allow the cat to stand up and long enough and wide enough for adult-sized cats to lie down and turn around. Many of the designs at zooplus are light and easy to wash. If you are looking to fly with your cat, make sure you pick a case that meets the International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations and double-check with your airline's individual dimensions.
Are there alternatives to cat carriers for car travel?
If your cat is unhappy in carriers or crates, a car harness can be a great options. These cat car harnesses allow you to fasten your pet into the car for safety during travel, spreading pressure across your cat’s body to prevent pulling on the neck and clipping into your car’s seat belt slots for easy use. We also offer harnesses with leads combined, which are great for taking your indoor cat out on a trot around the block!
