Giving 2 stars because the design isn't stupid. But the plastic is cheap, light-weight and, well, warped. The bottom part and the 2 top ;ids don't fit together properly. It requires quite some fiddling and bending to close the carrier properly.... Just the kind of nonsense you don't wanna deal with when trying to take a disgruntled struggling cat to the vet. Be glad it's sold out, because really: it's no better than a cardboard box.
