We will be doing some cross country travel some time in the near future. While we will have a travel trailer we believe that our cat (our first), needs to be in a carrier and feel comfortable while in it. There are many, but reviews on their quality is varied. He's about 13lbs. and I've read articles on training them to be comfortable while in their carrier, however, I need one that's well made and the appropriate size for him. He's an indoor cat and shy around people as he was frightened when he was a kitten and left on my front porch.
