If you need to travel by plane with a cat, getting the right cat carrier is a must. Not only do you need to keep your cat safely enclosed, but you also need to give your cat plenty of room so it won’t feel trapped.

Some cat carriers offer rigid, hard shells to protect the cat while others offer soft, collapsable walls that make it easier to squeeze into tight spots. The type of cat carrier you get depends partly on your cat and what you need, but rest assured there should be the right cat carrier for you.
