Pet carriers are a necessity for transporting our cats and dogs safely, whether to the vet or on vacation. Our pets are usually scared and do not want to be contained no matter how short or how near the destination. We owe it to them to provide security, safety, and comfort to our family members always. Therefore when shopping for pet carriers, soft sided, padded and aerated sides should be your first consideration. The comfy straps/handles of the carriers being held close provides a sense of security to our to our pets knowing we are very close-by. The safety of a well ventilated carrier with soft sides, padded sides help prevent suffocation and injuries. The mesh sides allow our loved ones to see our proximity and enable us to pet them while in transit.
