Catpacks!


The blog Fucked in Park Slope has this photographic evidence that catpacks—backpacks for cats, but do I even need to tell you this, LOOK—are real, especially so in Park Slope. Oh my god. And yet, look at that burly, happy kitty. I'm all for catpacks, I believe. Let those kitties out into the world! In a way that doesn't allow them to run away and forget about you and freeze in the snow and never come home due to pride/certainty that the snow will melt soon and great adventures can then be had without you, stupid feeder person.

I'm guessing that's one TERRIFIED cat.

"I've been known to work on my computer with a cat resting on my chest in a personal carrier – a great bonding experience."

also please click on #3, the "pet pouch carrier." that photo is burned into my retinas.

Haha! But some serious kudos to anyone that can keep their cat in this position: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=3261+16901+3377&pcatid=3377

One #3 and one angry cat = one personal protection device. (Or you know, should the cat turn around - one serious death trap.)

adrienne

If it makes trips to the vet easier, I'm all for it. Cats are heavy! One handle on a carrier is not enough!

That looks like my old corner! (Not my old like, prostitute corner, the corner I used to live on) AHH I NEVER SAW PEOPLE WITH CAT PACKS THERE :(

I saw a cat stroller in Prospect Park last week. Not a cat in a human stroller, a cat in a specially-designed-for-cats stroller.

Dude my cat is 20 lbs on a skinny day and the vet is a long walk from home (but not far enough away to justify taking the 20 lbs of howling misery on public transportation). I am down with the catpack.

My cat is sooo fat and getting fatter!!! KITTY! I use a kind of duffle bag situation. For now. Once she passes the 12 LB threshold...

ejcsanfran

Less than 12 lbs? Is she some kind of bulimic, chain-smoking, cocaine-snorting super-model cat who represents an unobtainable ideal of beauty and body image that makes all the other cats feel fat and unattractive?

So I win?

Beyond vet visits/pet sitter/practical applications, are there people out there who would use this to take their cat with them on mundane daily errands? My cat would be hella unimpressed if I decided to put her in a backpack and go grocery shopping.

Reading this, my immediate thought is "Oh my god how can that person get laid!" = then I look at myself, wearing ugly sweatpants, shoving pasta into my face with the ferocity of a lion, and watching a tv special on furries ... so maybe I should get a cat (and pack)

As the owner of a cat that will simultaneously piss, shit, and vomit all over himself within a five minute drive to the vet, I WANT THIS. That poor damn creature. I resent him.

Caitlin

I, too, am a member of the cat pack pack. I desperately want one for my plus-sized kitcat.

Ironika Leigh

i am - now not-so-proudly - a member of the cat pack pack (it rolls and has backpack straps. and rolling cat carrier? amazing - i'll take the dork points).

in my defense, i got it for sweet potato to go on a plane. i take him in ROLLIE to the pet store across the street, so he can get used to it.

he doesn't love being in ROLLIE out in the world, but spends a fair amount of time sleeping in it when i'm on the computer. (i leave it out and open for just this reason.)

i guess i'll stop rolling him with me on dates.

Jenn

I live in Park Slope. I'd be thrilled to see more cat packs and less strollers. At least a cat pack doesn't take up 3/4 of the sidewalk or a store aisle.
