Cat transport bags & cat carrier bags at the Maxi Zoo online shop
When should you use a cat carrier bag?
When out and about you see them occasionally: small dogs that are quickly put into a transport bag by their owners so that they don’t have to walk around between the feet of all those people. For a long time now, bags specifically designed to carry small four-legged creatures have been available. These are made of robust material, with window panels and soft interior upholstery: a comfortable solution for the animal. There are also chic and practical cat carrying bags from Silvio Design, Trixie, Hunter and AniOne for your furry feline friend.
As a cat owner, you probably don’t take your pet with you in a bag when going for a walk. However, there are situations where you have to move your cat from one place to another. Usually a visit to a vet is such an occasion, but the cat needs to remain in a transport container for a while, also when moving house or travelling. The carrier bag for cats has some advantages over the classic transport box made of plastic:
Comfortable to carry: a high-quality bag for transporting cats, whether as a backpack, handbag or travel bag, has ergonomic, wide shoulder straps. The bag is comfortable to carry, especially when you are on foot or riding a bike.
Flexibility: if you are travelling on public transport, store the cat carrier bag under the seat or take it on your lap when travelling by train or plane. On planes, cat bags with flexible side walls are better than rigid transport boxes.
Weight and shape: a cat carrier bag is significantly lighter than a cat box and can be stored in a space-saving manner when not in use.
Nearness: you can carry your pet close to your body and this can have a calming effect on your cat.
Does your cat feel comfortable in a cat transport bag?
Most cats love to hide in textile containers, sacks or bags. If you leave a large open bag on the floor unattended, it usually does not take long for a cat to sit in it. The shape and feel of these bags really appeal to our feline friends; they are soft and comfortable. Therefore cat transport bags are much more pleasant for many animals than classic transport boxes. However, there are also cats that feel unsafe in a bag precisely because the material is not rigid; these animals prefer cat boxes.
What should you pay attention to when buying a cat carrier bag?
Wide and padded straps are important. The side walls should be robust enough to form a box-like interior, but sufficiently flexible for the shape of the cat bag to be compressed slightly when needed. Make sure that all burr fasteners and zips are fastened securely. The material should be breathable and robust enough to withstand cat claws and teeth.
