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!

Sturdy Construction!

I feel so safe having my cats be able to be transported in this backpack! The materials are top notch and heavy duty!! I saw a review below where the front has potential to pop off, and it may happen with enough force or something, but I tightened the piece on and put lots of weight on it and it seemed fine so I am happy with it.

Super Awesome

This backpack is worth every cent it costs. It’s well constructed, roomy, looks cool af and my tabby loves it. Easy to carry around too. Thnx Jackson for making something that I’m sure will last for many years to come.

Great backpack. Careful! Cat can bust out window or grill

This is a great backpack— very high-quality. I do have some advice. A determined, or stressed out cat, can break out the bubble hole or the grill hole. This happened to me today while flying in a 737. my kitty pushed out the grill and the lock ring popped open with it. Next thing I know he’s struggling to get out. I will be gluing that part of the backpack shut, and thereby losing the option to change between the grill and the bubble.

Aki the travel cat

Have gone out on two walks with Aki, and she is getting much more fond of it. At first she was just curious; was not sure liked it; but what a great way for a less confident cat to gain confidence; going out but in a very secure and safe way.
