If your cat is sick, or you’re moving home, you’ll need a cat carrier. Shopping around for one can be stressful because of the number of cat carrier brands and models. That’s why we’ve written our guide below.
What makes a high quality cat carrier? It has to be well built and durable, because your cat will likely try to get out of it! You should also consider price, because many cat carriers are expensive. Always look at other reviews to see whether a product meets your expectations. You can buy them from stores, but you can also buy cat carriers online.
When you finally buy a cat carrier, make sure to train your cat well. If you don’t, they won’t want to get in. Consult our many training guides for more information.
Cat Carrier Reviews
If it’s cat carriers you’re looking for, you’re in the right place.
They’re the kind of thing that you only really appreciate if you have an awful experience. Forcing a cat into a cat carrier isn’t fun, and if your cat hates the thing, then your trip to the vet or moving house is only going to get more stressful. By contrast, if you’ve ever had a good one, you know just how much more pleasant your trip can be. That’s why it’s important that you find the exact right one for your cat.
That’s where our guide below comes in. Picking the right cat carrier is easy when you have reviews and scores for all the best brands, different kinds of cat carrier and alternatives too. That’s what the post below is all about. First, there’s a brief section on picking the right carrier. Then, after that, you can take a look at each and every cat carrier review we’ve ever done here on Catmart.
Ready? Let’s go.
Finding a Good Cat Carrier
When you’re trying to search online for cat carriers, don’t just pay attention to a product’s reviews. A recent investigation by Britain’s BBC found that, unbelievably, five star reviews were being bought and sold online. The majority of these reviews were for sites like Yelp, but they’re used on some products too. When you think about it, it makes business sense: it’s not illegal, and for as little as $5, you can dramatically boost business. The only downside is that it’s incredibly misleading to consumers. That’s why you have to use your common sense when you’re buying online.
Reviews aside, it’s still possible to build up a picture of a product’s quality through online research. That’s what we try to do here at Catmart. We search for products online so that you don’t have to, and rate them for a variety of metrics. For cat carriers, we look at the following points to determine which score to give it:
- Build quality: does it look good? As much as a cat carrier can look good, anyway.
- Durability: is it built to last? Cats like to try and scratch or gnaw their way out of carriers, so they have to be well built.
- Price: how much does it cost relative to the other products?
- Other reviews: what do other reviews say about the product?
There are also many different kinds of cat carrier, although that doesn’t necessarily influence our score. The different kinds aren’t better than one another. They’re just good for different uses and for different people (well, cats) is all. We also review every single product fairly: we aren’t paid to favor one product over another, for example. Below are our favorite cat carriers: the very best that we could find, and that we’ve reviewed for our site…
