The carrier measures 16″ x 11 5/8″ x 10 1/4″, the perfect size for small to medium cats. Simba, who weighs about 10 lbs., is shown here modeling the Sheraton Luxuries carrier.
A slight step up from the AmazonBasics model, this one offers a few more bells and whistles for the pet owner on the go. In addition to similarly good ventilation and handy straps, this one offers pockets for treats and medications.

It’s available in either medium or large in the following colors: Crimson Red, Juicy Hot Pink, Lavender Purple, Mineral Blue, Onyx Black, Rose Wine, Sapphire Blue, Shamrock Green, Spinach Green, and Sunshine Yellow.
