    Wow, this works really great! My cat is almost impossible to get into normal carriers, and will hold a grudge on me sometimes for days when I force her in… but I slid her right in the Calm Carrier on the first try, and she isn’t mad at me at all! Definitely recommend this carrier!!

    What normally took two people and a lot of patience and planning has been scaled down to one person and little effort! I can’t wait to show this off to the vet since they used to have to put on gloves and pull Winston out by the scruff. Now they can just slide him out no problem!

    I was so excited that this was finally available that I missed the part about the 20 pound limit. Unfortunately the cat I got this for is way over 20 pounds and he doesn’t fit. I’m hoping some day to get him down to a normal weight but until then this carrier will work fine for other cats. It was easy to assemble and it works great.

    This is an excellent product. A sturdier carrier than other carriers I have had. I am not handy, but I had no trouble with quick assembly. Working great for a skittish cat I just adopted.

    Finally, a carrier designed for cats who don’t like being shoved in a hole. Very nicely made and I now I can relax a bit when taking my cat to the vet. Recommended.

    My cat loves it! No problem getting her in that carrier.

    Best carrier EVER! It’s much easier to use than the traditional type. I used to have to take my old one apart at the Vet’s office to get my cat out. The drawer is so much easier to use, there’s no more lost time at the clinic because you don’t have to take it apart and then put it back together. It’s worth every penny!!! Snickers gives it two paws up!

    Amazing carrier – so creative! I love the type of plastic it’s made of – nice and shiny which will be easy to keep clean. Van Ness has excellent customer service!

    This cat carrier is great. I am so glad I made this purchase. It is so much easier to get the cat in and out of a carrier and the cat is so much calmer. I wish I had seen this sooner.

    This is the greatest design for a cat carrier I ever saw!! What a wonderful idea– a sliding drawer!! I just hope they manufacture one in a larger size for cats heavier than 20 pounds or to carry 2 cats at once!!

    Amazing design. Best for Fear-Free access to cat and for getting cat in the carrier

  12. Casey Leonardo (verified owner)

    Very cool design, well made and easy to assemble. It’s just a bit small for most of my cats is the only downside.

  13. Karen (verified owner)

    Such a smart idea! No more struggling to shove my pet through the doorway, I just slide them in or out. The only thing that would make this better would be to offer it in larger sizes – one of my pets is “fluffy” (that’s the nice word for fat) and it’s a bit snug for him. Will definitely buy again when larger sizes are available.

    Easy to put together. Will use it first for two tiny kittens together. After they grow, I will purchase another carrier so they will each have enough room.

    Brilliant Concept. This has changed my life . Was finally able to get my very cranky, but adored, cat to the vet for a wellness check and lethal nails clipped. I’m so grateful Van ness for this perfectly designed crate. It was easy to put together and more importantly easy to get cat into. The Vet hadn’t seen this crate and she asked if she could show all the staff in the clinic. She was very impressed.

    I use the carrier to transport fostered cats to and from adoption events. They’re typically scared so it is good not to have to force/push a cat into a carrier which would start the day on an anxious note . . . not something you want potential adopters to experience.
