I've used these carriers for several years now for my Norwegian Forest Cats who regularly go to shows- our carriers get more use than the average pet owner's! The carriers are robust (unlike what other reviewers say) and it is perfectly possible to get even my 7.5 kilo male in and out of the top opener with no problem. It's handy to have the slots on the top to use the seat belt to strap the carriers in, and I occasionally use the wheels (bought separately). I often recommend them to people to buy if they have Norwegians, or big cats.

i lvoe this carrier its really big and roomy with a openning at the top.
I use it to take 1 or 2 big cats to the vets or one mum cat with her 6 kittens! We could have fitted more in!
I never bothered with any strap you dont need it, easy to put together to, even if the instructions that come with it are for another crate!

The best cat basket you can buy!
I bought this cat box for my bengal cat a few months ago as he is terrible getting into a front opening cage & I thought it would be easier for me (& him) to pop him in through the top. It is a great success for him as he is far less stressed through this method.
But the real beauty of the cage was revealed when another of my cats has become very ill recently, the ease of the top opening allowed me to gently place him down into the box instead of pushing him in through the front, in fact he was so ill the vet was able to unclip the top from the bottom and examine him without having to lift him out.
I would recommend this transporter to all cat owners, you never know when you might need it.

The reason this cage is a life saver is because it literally makes the transition stage from my house to the vet so much easier. My sweetie likes to travel, but every time we get in the car, she always insists to climb into my lap. This comfortable easy to access dog cage prevents me from getting in a wreck, and gives her the comfort that she needs. I would recommend this durable and practical pet cage to anyone.
