Cat Carriers

Cat Carriers (Airline Approved)

It is important that, in addition to the health and documentation requirements, your cat travels in a suitable container which must be well ventilated, large enough for the animal to stand up, lie down and turn around freely. No part of your cat is allowed to protrude from the carrier and the carrier should be both secure and leak proof. The Pets on the Move Cat Carriers are built with maximum comfort and safety in mind and all cat carriers are fully airline approved and are sturdy with a carrying handle.

To ensure your cat is comfortable, each carrier is large enough to ensure that your cat can stand fully erect and turn around in the carrier, at its adult size.

With relevance to construction of cat carriers please note the extract within the mesh section.
