There has always been the traditional carriers for cat, but these carriers weren't necessarily conducive for airline travel, safety in the car, or comfort for your feline. When you are traveling, you need to determine the needs and requirements of airline rules for pet travel and the comfort and convenience for your cat and you.

Did you know that cancer afflicts an estimated 2% of the 80 million (2021) or more housecats now living in the United States?
