 Cat Basket or Carrier Previous Next

A cat carrier is essential, even if you plan to travel no further with your kitten than the Veterinary Surgery. If you accustom your kitten to the carrier from an early age, it will make future trips to the Veterinary Surgery or groomer much easier.

Most pet stores stock a variety of travelling baskets. Look for one that will be roomy, well ventilated, escape-proof and easy to clean. Be sure to choose a quality basket. Avoid baskets or cages that have sharp, exposed edges that could injure your kitten or protrusions that could snag your kitten's collar and choke them.

The most useful cat baskets are made of lightweight plastic or fiberglass. Wicker carriers may be more attractive but they are draughty and hard to clean.
