I HAVE this PetMate carrier in gray/blue and my hard-to-catch female Kat do not mind being in this carrier. She can SEE - top, sides and in front. Easy to carry, easy to lock. I use a self-warming (space blanket for cats) blanket to line the bottom of the carrier, during cold season, when taking her to the vet. This carrier CAN be built better by - having a thicker heavier metal locks (top and side) AND having three round holes in the back.
