Travel with Pets/in cabin carriers for my cat


Hello Lisa,

if you please i would like to ask about best in cabin carrier for my cat . she is kind of fat 7 kg with big belly once she sits down ( has small head,big body)

the airline iam travelling with allows in cabin bags of a total 115cm ( addition of W+L+H)

have 2 bags in mind and wonder which is better for 4.40hrs

1- Bergan soft carrier, Large size  48.5L - 25.5W - 33H = 107cm
2- zoofari carrier      51L - 30.5W - 33H = 114.5 almost 115

the thing is that i couldnt find any reviews about the zoofari bags...either very new brand or not much known

would appreciate any advice which bag is better .zoofari bag looks better taking size in account but i dont know if the material is good enough!!!

thank you for your help
best regards...

thats link for the 2 bags on eBay



Hi ludovic marty, I too am clueless on this other carrier. My concern is what holds it upright. If it is rigid poles then you may find it hard to fit under some airlines seats. If it is flexible then you can. I was unable to read the description and specs since it was in another language I am not familiar with. So I think I would go with the bergan at least we both know it is flexible in height and can conform to fit under most airline seats.

My main focus is teaching pet owners how to choose and properly prepare an airline carrier kennel for a safe and comfortable trip. I can answer any questions on the subject of purchasing an airline approved carrier or kennel. I can also answer questions on how to modify or prepare an existing pet carrier kennel to be safe and considered airline compliant. Also any questions on how to ship a pet domestically in the USA. I can not answer questions on required paperwork for importing or exporting pets internationally.


My experience includes owning and running a Luxury Cat Care Facility since 1997 - Kitty Cat Condos. While running the facility I have used my daily pet experiences to invent and develop many pet travel products, many of which are Patented. The most well known is DryFur® Travel Pads. I now run a blog dedicated to sharing free information to pet owners who are often overwhelmed with the task of traveling on airlines with their beloved pets.
