our cat's travel safety relies on a quality pet carrier. Whether for quick jaunts to the veterinarian or expeditions around the world, your pet carrier needs to offer comfort, safety, and security. This helps reduce stress levels and protect your cat while she's on unfamiliar grounds.

Many cat carrier styles are available. Choose one based on the following criteria:

Size
Large enough for your cat to turn freely, stand, and lay down inside, with ample space for food and/or water dishes. For longer trips, it should also accommodate a small litter box.

Construction
Sturdy with doors that securely latch or zipper is best. A water-resistant bottom with an absorbent pad inside helps contain any accidents and cushion your pet's ride, so a removable fleece liner for extra comfort is a plus.

Ventilation
The most important feature of any carrier, designed for any distance of travel. Choose a carrier with at least three sides of ventilation.

Features
Zippered pockets, leash clips, and carry straps make for convenient travel.

If you are traveling by airplane, consult your airline for their specific size, ventilation, strength, sanitation, and design requirements.
