Pet Carriers

Peek-a-boo! Here I am in my little red tent. I just love love love my little red tent. So do EK and Candy. We love them so much, we have two of them! We play in them, we sleep in them, & we hide in them and jump out to pounce on each other. We have fun every way a kitty can have fun in our tents.

You’re probably wondering, “What does this have to do with pet carriers?” Well, I’ll tell you. Our magnificent little red tents are actually pet carriers. They have two zippers, so you can arrange them to open front, back or top. There are handles at the top for carrying. We love our tents so much we don’t even mind getting in them to go to the v-e-t. That’s right. Off to the v-e-t no muss, no fuss, no crying, no hiding. We just get in our tents and go.

We’ve read about a lot of furriends that have had to visit the v-e-t lately. They dread getting in the PTU (prisoner transport unit). They hide and run away and make it very difficult for their humans to get them in the PTU. Now, none of us, anipal or human,  likes going to the v-e-t. But sometimes you just have to go. So why not make the PTU fun?

Our tents are out all the time. We don’t have any warning about being off to the v-e-t since nothing new happens until we get there. Mom scoops us up, puts us in our tents, and off we go. Our first hint that this isn’t a new game is when she seatbelts the carrier into the car. And since I’ve had stroller outings involving the car, for all I know we’re going on an outing!

I think everyone should have a fun carrier. I think it would make going to the v-e-t or anywhere else you have to go much less stressful. Don’t forget to get nice fleecy beds to put in them. That makes them extra cozy and comfy!

My tent came from Target. I’ve never seen this type of carrier anywhere else. If any of you know of other fun carriers, post the link in the comments. There’s three of us and soon the two little ones will be too big to share and we’ll need a third carrier. It would be fun to have a new shape.
