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 moved to a new house with a little dog which my cat is deathly frightened of . When we go out of the room to get a litte perspective she travels around with me in the pack to keep her safe. Its a huge house , so its our 1st step. Once she is harness / leash trained we'll go on hikes ♡ My cat loved it right away ! It didn't smell like strong chemicals so I just let it air out for a few hours. The bubble was easy to pop on. If she's wide awake she goes in height wise & if we need to drive she goes in laying down with the carrier horizontal. The padding inside is really soft & slides to fit upright or horizontal & I can tell Daisy is in a cozy , spacious , breathable secure contained carrier ☆ The pockets on the sides are really helpful & the changeable shoulder strap to add & remove is super convenient & easy. I like it & love it 😻😻😻😻😻

We had our first outing using this backpack and my 10lb Siberian cat loves it. We have a different backpack from a different brand and it is fine enough. The best part about this one is the roominess. We recently got a kitten to help our 1.5 year old enjoy more catty cat time. (And he’s such a cute black kitten.) anyway, he had to go to the vet and our cat and kitten both fit comfortably in the backpack! Our cat liked it so much because she could stay in the open backpack while the kitten was examined. It provided the comforting ‘safe space’ even though it was brand new.

We leave it out for the cats to go in and out of and they seem to do that from time to time. Our cat is about 50% leash trained and we always start with a backpack when we go for walks. We’ll be leash training the kitten, too and I’m glad we have this cat sack ;). May have to get another when the kitten grows up.

It arrived super fast. It is high quality and sturdy. We recommend it.
