We do not only talk about the means of transport, but the most appropriate way to move our animal, either by car, by plane, by train, and so on; with a suitable cabin, in which our pet feels as calm and comfortable as possible and which, of course, is a safe travel system according to the transport chosen since we will not need the same transport cage to take the cat with us that when the animal travels in the hold of an airplane.
The case must have measures compatible with the size of our cat, it is not necessary to be able to walk inside the transport cage but it must have a minimum space in which you feel comfortable.
For a feline's travel, a covered briefcase is always better than a simpler transport cage, since the animal does not see outside and will always be calmer. The cages discovered are only advisable for cats of very calm character and who travel inside the car with us.
One of the advantages of this type of transport cages is that it folds completely and occupies very little space.
There are multiple types of briefcases on the market: with wheels, without wheels, rigid plastic, clothes, nylon or esparto. We should never choose the case on a whim, it can be a very nice transport box, but it does not fulfill the functions for which it has to be used.
Wicker cases, very attractive looking and very economical price, are the least recommended for the transport of our pets because they are of weak structure so it is easy to break them and, what is even worse, their Disinfection and cleaning are very complicated.
For short transfers, for example from home to the veterinarian, there are many advisable suitcases on the market: rigid, plastic or nylon. For the airplane transfer the model will vary a little depending, as we have said before, if the animal travels with the passage or in the hold. To travel with us, since the cat can be on our legs or at our feet, a very light briefcase is convenient for us.
We must consider that in addition to having to travel long distances by the airport carrying it, we will charge the pet's ticket for the peso (pet plus briefcase) so the lighter the bag, the better; Obviously, light but safe.
