The Jackson Galaxy Convertible Cat Backpack Carrier

$199.99 $139.99

Trying to decide between a cat backpack and traditional cat carrier? There’s no need: The Jackson Galaxy Convertible Cat Backpack Carrier is a combination of both!

Cat owners can comfortably switch between carrying their cats on their backs (it makes an excellent cat hiking backpack!) to carrying their cats at their sides. Simply lay the cat backpack flat, clip on the detachable and adjustable strap, unfold the extended plush mat to cover the length of the carrier, and sling the strap over your shoulder! Your cat will be riding in style quicker than you can say, “Total Cat Mojo!” Similar to our "The Fat Cat" Cat Backpack, The Jackson Galaxy Convertible Cat Backpack Carrier can hold cats up to 25 lbs.

Designed in collaboration with Animal Planet star and best-selling author, Jackson Galaxy, this innovative cat carrier backpack includes:

  • A detachable and adjustable shoulder strap to quickly and easily convert the backpack to a traditional carrier.
  • An extended, soft plush mat that can sit at the base of the extra large cat backpack AND unfold to cover the length of the carrier. It’s removable, making it easier to clean!
  • Both plastic bubble and flat screen attachments for the front of the cat backpack. They lock in securely and can be switched at your leisure, or removed completely.
  • A clip and bungee that attaches to your cat’s harness, allowing them to safely “hang out” of the backpack’s front or top, without risk of them unexpectedly jumping out!
  • Strong mesh material that covers the top and sides of the big cat backpack. It offers great breathability, and is completely resistant to cat claws. No tears on our watch!
  • Air holes in the front that provide additional ventilation. Bonus: they are a great way to slip your kitty treats!
  • Adjustable chest and shoulder straps that allow you to fit the backpack perfectly to your body, and provide extra support for your fur baby’s weight.
  • Two spacious side pockets to hold water bottles, cat treats, keys, or anything else you might need!

I love the carrier. It is light weight and sturdy. Now I just have to convence my cat to get in it. hahaha. I'm sure she will love it when she gets used to it.

Nice and sturdy! 100% recommend!!

I got 2 of these backpacks for my cats. One cat is a big hunk of love, Hammy, (he's sliming down for health but still a big cat overall) and he has a bit of a harder time being comfortable in his backpack vs my other cat, Allen, who's smaller and slimmer. Hammy still fits well in his backpack though! Just, if you have a big cat, keep in mind that they may not have as much room as a regular size kitty. Ham can fit well, but when the backpack is sideways (like a duffel bag) he has to kind of squish down. We've had these backpacks for almost a year now, and so far they've been great! They haven't had a chance to go out much in them and no long trips so far (Hammy is still getting used to his harness) but they've both been on short trips outside and love being able to see the birds and breath in fresh air! The backpacks will have to be zipped closed for a while because when they arrived they were kind of squished (which is perfectly understandable) so I just kept them zipped up until they kept their shape more. To get them used to it, I let them in the backpack and fed them treats, and when it wasn't time to go out I would randomly hide treats in there, so that it got them to explore the bag and have nice surprised once in a while, so they associate them with nice things. If you're cat isn't totally used to it yet, they MAY try to climb out. I know Allen did a couple times, so just be careful and keep an eye on them on their first trips. I put the backpack on my front at first so I could keep an eye on him. It actually fit pretty well on my front as well! The chest clip can fit under your shoulder blades to give you a bit more support. They haven't gone to the vet or anything yet, because I want them to associate it with good things for a bit longer until they're super comfy with it, then they can take longer trips in the car and maybe to the vet. If you want a nice sturdy backpack that will keep your cat nice and safe but still having fun, get this backpack! Jackson Galaxy knows what's up!

Great Product!

I leave this backpack out all the time as a kitty bed and I put treats in it to get Piper to go in it. She does nap in it and I will use it for transporting her, but she hasn't quite warmed up to is as a means of having "fun". It's great quality and it's very useful, however, in hindsight, I wish I would have bought the one that has more mesh instead of the clear globe. Would recommend for anyone who has a cat! Whether for traveling or adventure!
