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.
