Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect for a fat cat :)
My cat is 16 inches long and weighs 18 lbs, she loves this! I was worried it would be to small for her or she would fall out the bottom but when i got it and put her in she fit fine! I put her favorite blanket in the bottom of it for her to feel extra safe and not to feel her paws threw the bottom of it! :)

This is exactly what I have been searching for online. Leonardo really hates cat carriers, but I leave it set up in my living room and, sometimes, he will even take a cat-nap in it. I'm very satisfied with the price, the quickness of delivery, and the quality of the product. Thank you...

I got this carrier to transport my cat for vaccines. It looked more secure and comfortable than the others. The mission was a success and Tigger chose it for his bed. A picture is worth a thousand words.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyRiver Like it Lots!!
I have a 90' Chocolate Lab who has been crate trained since she was a puppy. If she wanted to come out of the crate she probably could, but because of her training and attitude it is a 'Moot' point. She sleeps in her crate in my bedroom every night and once in a while I take her with me on a trip & again she sleeps in her crate. I had a large portable crate for a couple of years that was actually a little big to haul around in the Blazer and the RV and I had to get a new cover because the 'plastic' zipper broke. Finally the hinges, (also plastic) broke and I started looking for a replacement. The Crate I bought from you is just the right size for my large dog to be comfortable in, but not too big to handle easily. It is easy to fold up, it has 'metal' hinges and a 'metal' zipper which I expect to hold up well. I also like the tan color, it fits in with any decor. I think it is going to be just fine!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by DaveFromSF Great soft crate at great price
I just got my 2nd Large Port-A-Crate 32". My first one was purchased 3 years ago. I just got a second dog, and needed a second crate. I use them when transporting my pets in my SUV, or when visiting.
This is a fantastic price for a soft crate; a fraction of the price you have to pay for other brands or from other vendors. I love that it comes in a 32" size. My 50 lb. Lab fits it with room to spare. Other brands come in 30" (too small) or 36" (bigger than I need). The sizes shown in Walmart's listing for the Large and Extra large are wrong. The Large is 32 x 23 x 23, and the Extra Large is 36 x 25 x 25. See the manufacturer's web site (firstrax.net) for more info.
This crate has a larger floor area than an equivalent sized plastic crate. That is because its sides are vertical. Plastic crates have angled sides, resulting in a smaller floor area.
Like other reviewers, my crate arrived a strong petroleum odor. It took a few days of airing outdoors for the odor to dissapate. Don't expect to use your crate for a few days after its arrival.
The floor material of my first crate tore after about a year of use. The failure was caused by it rubbing on the rear seat latch of my SUV. Fiortunately, Firstrax sells replacement covers, so I was able to repair it. I now use a sheet of foam under the crate when it is in my car, which has prevented futher wear issues.
Like any soft crate, don't use it with dogs that are strong diggers or chewers. Any soft crate can be destroyed in minutes by a determined dog. But if your dog is suitable, you can't find a better value than this crate.
Rated 4 out of 5 by LovingMySexGod Not a bad carrier. My only complaint is the bottom isn't solid, you can see and feel the paws stick out on bottom. Must not feel very sturdy to the animals.
Other then that, I like it and would recommend it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ILovePrada Good quality and affordable product
I was very satisfied with this dog carrier. I have five chihuahuas and it makes it easy to tote them around. It is sturdy and convenient. I like that it has the door on the front and also the top unzips which is nice. If you have a dog that is chihuahua sized, this is a great product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dogloverX3 Exceeds expectations
I was thrilled to receive my Port-a-Crate in less than 24 hours. It was easy to assemble, and is quite durable. My small mixed-breed puppy took to it right away. Since he is less than 2lbs., he seems to enjoy the security of it. In fact, the other night, my puppy jumped into it to go back to sleep. I use it for traveling and also to crate him overnight. It is also helping him to become housebroken. I would highly recommend this product for its price and value.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Judydog101 Deceiving!
I bought two of the medium portable crates (for my parents to transport their cats in) based on the pictures, and what it says the summary. I was led to believe that the carries had handles on top! I picked this carrier specifically because of the substantial handles it shows in the pictures. Well it doesn't have carrying handles at all! very DISAPPOINTED. My parents love the crate, but are having to take to a canvas shop to have handles added. Apparently only the x-small and small have the handles! just be aware!
Rated 5 out of 5 by starpath Great Value
I, like you, read many reviews before purchasing a soft sided crate. I am well aware that they are not as indestructible as either a wire crate, or an airline style crate, and I didn't want to waste my money for something that would give me nothing in return.
I show dogs (Vizslas) and wanted to be able to have something portable and convenient for my already crate trained dogs. This delivers to my expectations. The XL size is quite roomy and comfortable, with plenty of space for them to stand up and turn around. They are also able to lay down in their favorite positions.
It is extremely easy to set up and take down; I think it took less than 5 minutes to set up the first time, without looking at the instructions.
I would never use the Petnation Dog Port-A-Crate to attempt crate training, that would be a futile effort as it could easily be torn to shreds, but if your dog is crate trained and you want a safe haven within the home, or hotel/motel, it should meet the needs of both you and your dog.
I recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mcline27b Love it
Looks great, works great, folds up small and looks expensive, but is actually quite cheap, who could ask for more! E-16 is just the right size for a Yorkie, the next size up would be right for a normal sized cat.
Rated 2 out of 5 by NoHandles No Carrying Handles!
I bought this 24 inch crate to carry my 2 cats in the car when moving. In the photo when I ordered it showed carrying hands to carry the crate open w/the cats in. I was sadly dissapointed when it arrived with no carrying handles! The only 'handle' it had was the one to use when the crate was folded. Doesn't do me much good when I have to carry my cats in the crate from the car to the motel.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Prudie3 Exactly as I ordered. Soft sided carrriers are sturdier than others. I've had other fall apart and my pet get out, not with these. I use them to carry my cats.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DoctahJ playpen for small pets, comfort zone for larger
I have used the small version of this crate as my cat carrier for years and have recommended it to countless others. My cat LOVES her small Petnation crate. It is her house, her bed, her favorite hangout spot. A few years back, my boyfriend bought both the small and extra large versions for his cat; since he RVs, it's nice to have a larger enclosure for the cat so she can go out a little at RV parks. She loves it, too.
Recently, I adopted an older dog with some bladder issues, mostly stress-related from being in the shelter. I ordered the extra large for her in case I need to crate her if the bladder issues do not resolve and aren't fully addressed with diapers when we travel. My cat has already adopted it as a "vacation home", and one of my other dogs loves hanging out in it as well. The intended resident only goes in when I go in with her, but she does not fear it. So we're off to a great start.
The construction of these crates is excellent. They are very durable. NOT intended for animals with extreme anxiety or for aggressive animals, mind you. These crates are perfect for calm animals and for travel; my cat rides in hers across the continental US several times each year. They fold flat and take up no space at all. The mesh on the "windows" and front zipper flap is as advertised, extra strong. Zippers are solid and are also easily secured shut using a clip or small padlock. The funky new plastic smell dissipates quickly. Handles on the small model are perfectly balanced for carrying. And even though I'm not a Walmart shopper, Walmart is the only place to order these crates because they cost at least double everywhere else. Excellent product, and excellent value for the price.
Rated 2 out of 5 by whitevelvet would be great if you didnt have to transport pet
I got the medium one and I will have to take it back, because it don't have a handle on it, Would be very hard to take your pet in it, because there is nothing to hold to for carrying. Other than that is a very nice crate.
Rated 5 out of 5 by smmpa Wow! What a great carrier for the money!
I bought the 30" version to use as a kennel for a kitten I rescued. I needed room for a small litter pan, bed, food and water dishes. I was so impressed I decided to buy the smaller version for the trips to the vet, etc. The small version is as well built as the larger one. I compared the price with lots of other carriers and there is nothing this nice anywhere close for the money. I will recommend this to everyone that needs a nice, reasonably priced carrier. By the way, the larger version was a bargain too!
Rated 5 out of 5 by boarrat5960 Terrific for travelers with pets
Our order arrived to the site for pick up within the time window we were given. We purchased model #E32 (32" L x 23" W x 23" H) and it is the perfect size for our 50# lab mix. There is plenty of room for her to stand up, turn around and sleep in. The material appears to be sturdy and has a nice neutral color. The one we got has very little odor, unlike those mentioned in previous reviews. Set up and tear down was a piece of cake. Love the "skylight" feature. It will be great to take on road trips. Our lab mix was curious with her new sanctuary and went into it without hesitation since she is already crate trained. She loved it!! This product is a great addition to the hard plastic [airline approved] crate we use at home. We highly recommend this!
Rated 5 out of 5 by babygirlga02 Better Than Expected!!
I purchased this product for my 1yr old Chihuahua-Khloe. She had one that I purchased from a Pet Supply store which costed me an arm & a leg and the top would always collapse. When I rcvd this product it was very easy to pop open and I put her blanket in and she climbed right in without hesitating and would not get out. It is the perfect size and she can stand up, poof & get comfortable with no problem. She is 4lbs fully grown and fits perfectly in it. Love It!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by WallyWorldGuy In the dog house
All and all a very good product. Well constructed.
Folds and unfolds very nicely. However, There always is that imfamous word " However or But "
If your animal likes to dig he or she will will most certainly find their way out through one of the mesh windows. Other than that I think you will be pleased with your purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kemmtm Best buy in a long time!
I purchased five of these for a long trip (650 miles), and they are the best purchase I've made in a LONG time!! The size is good for a small to medium size cat, and with a small towel in the bottom I think the cats were comfortable. Top and front entry is a plus (as long as you remember to close the other one.....). There are metal "tubes" inside that have to be connected, and these required some strength and patience, but I won. I HIGHLY recommend thse carriers over the hard plastic kind that tend to come "unsnapped" and pose a risk of the cat escaping. Also, considering their construction, I expect them to last for many years.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nitanurse I am really satified with the purchase of the large Petnation crate. I have a 15lb. Shih Tzu. The medium was too small for my use. The product is very well made and exceded my expectations.
My Shih Tsu is an older dog and am presently using this crate to crate train her. Has worked really well, so far. Purchased this crate about 2 wks. ago.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hanina707 Good Price and quality
I needed a soft crate for the back of the truck so I can take my 2 dogs on a three day trip in winter. (the truck has a canopy and is carpeted, but no heat back there) I think this one will work just fine. The dogs have already gone in and settled into it. I like the canvas sides and top for a little extra warmth. (I would have put my wire crate in, but it will be too heavy to move in and out and doesn't have any sides to keep them warmer) It also has 4 grommeted tabs on the base, so I can somewhat secure it. All in all, I think it is a good product. I would get one for the smaller dog too, but I think they will probably end up in this one together, for warmth and companionship.
Rated 3 out of 5 by ggraham607 Smaller than i expected.
I returned this item because it was too small for my 9 pound cat. I instead bought the 24" Port-A-Crate which will hold my two cats if necessary and it is well made.
Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent Product!
Very sturdy and a good quality product. For the price, this is a really excellent purchase. We use it for our toy poodle puppy (3 lbs) and she fits in it very comfortably. We use the crate to potty train her, as a night bed, and to transport her in it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by drachs Folding animal carrier
This has worked out perfect for us to have for our Chihuahua that travels with us in our motorhome.
It take very little storage space and yet sturdy for
taking her places where they are required to not be in the reach o small children.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dawlsn Petnation Crate
I absolutely love this crate. I have a three month old yorkie and he loves it too. It is the perfect size for him. And it is so adorable. I love the fact that it has two openings and the front is zippered. You can also roll it up and it will stay. It very portable also. Lovely little crate for a little dog.
Rated 3 out of 5 by NonameinATL My dog tore through the mesh in minutes!
This is a nice crate except that it isn't sturdy enough for extremely active or smart dogs who are escape artists. There is only a thin light-weight mesh that acts as the door which zips shut. There is a plastic hook for the zipper at the top to prevent the dog from being able to push the zipper down and "open" the door. My dog is very mischievous and active. He ripped through the mesh door in less than 2 minutes during the first thunder storm. I duct taped the mesh back together and he then broke the plastic clip that holds the zipper in place. I duct taped everything and used the top door to place him in the crate and he scratched at the canvas until he tore it apart at the seams. If you have a calm or older dog it would probably be fine. We're having to go back to a plastic or wire crate.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NYStateofMind Nice dog crate
I bought this to take home a puppy we got for Christmas, and for our puppy to stay in at night while he is still small. It was perfect for this purpose. I would point out it is well made, and a great value for the money.
Rated 3 out of 5 by rustismom Love it except that I did not realize that it did not have carry handles. now I have to pick the whole thing up with two arms and have no free hand to get to keys or anything else. My dog only weighs 10 lbs, so carrying him with one hand is no problem so I may not use this as often as I planned on.
Walmart was very prompt in sending out my purchases and I am very pleased with them.pittypat
Rated 5 out of 5 by Doglover5619 Tent for dogs
I bought the E32 for vacation for my scotty and mix westie. Both are terriers. they are 30lbs and 15lbs. I bought for vacation to keep them in if we need to go somewhere where dogs werent allowed. When I got it I set it up for a few days and they went in checked it out and came back out. They arent hyper dogs and this was big enough for them with room to spare. I havent gotten to use it where I had to zip it up and leave them,my vacation got canceled. So I can say this is way big enough for them to sleep and stand up and even move around some.
