Helpful for vet trips/travelling?

Hi to all,
I'm Daniel and I have a 9 year old Tabby cat called Tigger. One of my fellow cat-loving friends sent me this link recently:

I'm not sure if anyone else has had this problem, but as Tigger is a rescue cat, I have a lot of problems trying to get him in a cage/box for our visits to the vet. I ended up trying this product when I was at my wit's end and it's done us the world of good. It's much less of an uphill struggle now and although he still doesn't like the trip, it's far less stressful on both of us.

(Sorry if this is taken as advertising, but I really wanted to recommend this carrier. Also I thought the cartoon was hilarious!)

Best wishes

(P.S. Apologies but I've posted this in a couple of places as I wasn't sure of the best place for it to go!)

We just finished our 3rd trip to the vet first with Finnegan, followed by Domino and finally Stormy getting them all up to date on their shots and getting the "once over" by the vet.

They all did very well at the vet, even our Hellion, Stormy. We have harness style leashes that we use when taking them to the vet. We still hold them securely in our arms, but if the cat escapes, they are dragging a leash which makes them easier to catch. Fortunately it has never come to that.

We have the standard pet taxi and it would probably be safer to user that, but we've always enjoyed carrying them in and out of the vet's office.

Here's a picture of Domino modeling the leash.

yeah he does not look any too happy, LOL! I love the big pic of him--he is gorgeous, and wow, a Whole Lot of Kitty!

thanks for posting, I love it! and very glad to hear they all got good reports from the Dr. =^)

Our neighbors have a big orange tabby, and they walk around with him on a leash in their yard. He seems to like it. He gets to be outside while they work in the garden or refill their bird feeders. It looks pretty funny.

Wonder if we could get our cats to do it without freaking out completely?

Yeah, probably not... :)
