A great solution for when you need to quickly and effectively put a cat into its carrier: a top-loading door. It’s much easier to get a reluctant cat into its carrier through this large door that takes it right into the wider dimension of the carrier. For ease of exit, you have the regular front door as well.
This is a fine, no-nonsense, airline approved carrier (always best to check with your airline carrier before the flight!). Sturdy, spacious and well aired, made of durable and easy-to-clean plastic, it will be just as great for short distance traveling in your car. For longer journeys in unfamiliar suroundings, you may want to lay a piece of cloth, preferably with the familiar scents of home, over the top of the carrier, to block the top door and create a more secure environment.
