I am very excited to review this new backpack that I got for Kitty Mojito recently.
Kitty Mojito is adventurous and likes to spend time outdoors. Even though she walks on a leash, sometimes I need to put her in her carrier to transport her to various places such as the vet, pet shop or the park. A good carrier is a must have in any pet household!
As someone with neck and shoulder issues, the traditional carrier puts a lot of strain on my body. The carrying handle on regular carriers are usually fairly thin and when you add a 10 pound cat to the mix, it just really does some damage to my already delicate neck and shoulders. I have tried out many carriers and finally learnt about this Petsfit carrier from a friend who takes her very adventurous kitty on hikes and trails! (Thanks Jude!)
Let me first tell you about what the product description says on Amazon.
1. Thick padded straps makes it easier to carry.
2. Features mesh window for safety, ventilation and visibility, sturdy adjustable shoulder straps and comfort grip handle.
3. A waist strap and a chest strap make it easier to carry.
4. Removable and machine washable pad.
5. Front and top entrance.
6. Soft fleece mat is comfortable for pets.
As you can see from the pictures above, there are two flaps, one on top and one in the front. This keeps the air flowing through the carrier to keep your pet comfortable.
One of my favourite aspects of this carrier is the fact that it is really roomy inside. Kitty was able to comfortably move around and lay down inside. This is a really important thing to keep in mind as you want your pet to be able to move freely and not feel constricted.
You can also attach a harness inside the carrier for added safety. I made it extra comfortable by adding a small blanket on top of the fleece mat that comes with the carrier.
Now on to the real test….. many people who saw my posts and videos on Instagram asked me how comfortable it is to carry this around. Even though I was skeptical at first, I was really impressed by how easy it was to carry Kitty around in it. The padded shoulder straps were very comfortable and didn’t put any strain on me. The chest and waist strap kept the carrier from bouncing around on my back.
We took Kitty along some snowy trails and she really enjoyed chilling out inside the carrier when she wasn’t out walking around. I could tell she felt safe and cozy. Even though she meowed a little bit at the beginning, she got comfortable enough on our walk and eventually just stretched out and enjoyed the view 🙂
We spend a good hour or so walking around and I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t end up with a sore neck and shoulders!
To end this review, I give this carrier a big THUMBS UP! Not only is it a great option for everyone who has a pet who weighs less than 15 pounds, it is the only carrier I have found so far that doesn’t give me severe neck and shoulder pains after carrying it!
It is sturdy and provides great support. Most importantly, it is the most comfortable carrier for Kitty Mojito!
