Cats should be transported in a carrier at the veterinary hospital
While there are tons of different types of cat carriers — from soft carriers to hard carriers and everything in between — the most important factor in determining what style of carrier you should get is dependent on the type of cat you have.
However, it is possible to work with your cat to take away some of the negative associations he has with the cat carrier, so try these steps and hopefully we can ensure that the hissing, growling and clawed attacks become a thing of the past.
Why is the Cozy Comfort Carrier better than a box carrier?
Many cats do not like forced confinement. The Cat-in-the-bag Cozy Comfort Carrier is designed so the cat’s head stays out, and the roomy bag doesn’t make him feel trapped. The bag allows your cat to have this full range of motion: lying down and stretching out, sitting up, standing up, and turning around. He will be restrained so that you don’t lose him while traveling, but he will be restrained comfortably so he will not be as stressed as he might be in a crate. Your cat can be secured next to you on the car seat by using the handle on the bag as a seat-belt pass through. The bag carrier does not add any weight to the cat and is not as awkward to carry as the crate. The cat does not slide or scrabble back and forth like he would in a crate — the hammock-like bag keeps him in one spot. In the exam room at the vet’s, the bag becomes a tool for the technicians and the doctor. They can leave the neckline fastened and access the cat by unzipping the bottom to take the temperature, check skin and hair or draw blood. They have more control over him, and he stays calmer. The bag carrier also has uses at home too, for medicines, dental care, bathing and nail-trimming.Can my cat get out of the Cozy Comfort Carrier?
Our carrier has an adjustable Velcro strip that allows you to tighten the collar snugly around your cat’s neck. Make sure there is enough room to get a finger under the collar. This way the cat is held securely and comfortably. There is no tension on the neck when the carrier is lifted by the handle. Our carrier is roomy and the cat cannot brace against it to work his way out. Make sure to get the right size to fit him properly.
