A few weeks ago we received an email about product testing The Portable Pet after we featured this post, Do You Have an Emergency Plan for Your Cat?.
It seems appropriate to share this product in September – September is National Emergency Preparedness Month.
The folks over at The Portable Pet were kind enough to send us a product sample for review.
I love the idea of this emergency cat kit, not only for emergency use, but also for every vet visit use and for traveling in general.
Think about the times that you have gone to the vet and forget to bring something – with The Portable Pet, you can just put whatever you need to bring with you to the vet into one of the pockets, so that it’s there when you go to the vet. You don’t have to remember to bring things the day of.
You can also pack it full of food, treats, etc. when you’re traveling – easy!
The sides Velcro onto your carrier, so that it is securely attached to the carrier – but can be removed for easy cleaning.
The Portable Pet is super easy to install – you just place it over your carrier with the black mesh pocket (watch the videos below to see the black mesh pocket in the back) at the back edge and the carrier handle through the opening on the top. You then remove the paper strip from the sticky Velcro and then align the Velcro against the bottom edge of the carrier and press the Velcro firmly to the carrier.
You can fit the following and more in The Portable Pet:
- food and water bowl
- medical records
I was raised by a very organized person, so I really see the benefit of staying ready for any unexpected event. I love this product – anything that enhances a product you already have is a bonus to me. It’s waterproof, easy-to-clean, has reflector tape (see videos), D-rings to fasten a leash to, as well as large and small pockets. You can buy The Portable Pet online for $29.95, plus $5.00 for shipping.
