How To Buy Good Cat Kennels?
Cat kennels are very useful carriers when people need to take their kitties with them. Like suppose you have some cute cats as pets. Now what if you have to travel somewhere and you want to take your cats along. What do you do? Well you put your kitties in some easily-available cat kennels, hand them over to airline staff and you are done. And you get your kitties back when your plane lands. So how can you buy a good quality and comfortable kennel for your cat? Here are few tips to help you decide the best one for your feline friends:
1. Size of the kennel: The whole point of buying a kennel for your cats is that your cat is comfortably transferred. So the size of the cat kennels is very important. Your cat should be comfortable in it and the kennel should be big enough so that the cat can lie down comfortably, stand in the kennel, move and even stretch in the kennel. Also consider the size of your cat, how long, big or small it is. The kennel should have sufficient width and height so that your cat doesn’t have to bend itself to move.
2. Hard or Soft Kennels: If you will be travelling in a plane, you should know that many airlines have a strict rule that your pets must be kept in hard kennels. This rule is good because hard kennels are the most durable variety of cat kennels. But they are also bulky and heavy to carry. So if you are just going to a short journey of an hour or so in your car or suppose if you are taking your cat to the vet, you can use soft kennels. These are usually made of wicker or similar soft material. These soft kennels are flexible, light and easy to use. Also soft kennels are much cheaper than hard kennels.
3. Latches: When you are out shopping for a kennel for your cat, you must also check the latches of the kennels. This is very important because there are several types of latches and each has a different mechanism. Some people find a particular latch to be easy while some may find that the other latch is good. So it all depends on the person. Therefore, before you buy the kennel for your cat, you must try out the latch.
4. Company and return policy: check the reviews and references of the company which you want to buy the kennel from. Also check out their return policy beforehand. What if your pet cat doesn’t likes the kennel? Can you return it for a full refund or can you exchange the product? Check the policies before you buy the kennel.
