Has anyone ever measure their cat for a carrier? I can't find a definite answer online about what size to get for kitty if he is x long by x tall. And I have a very long cat.

Are you doing it for airline travel or for just taking it to the vet? I know the airlines require the pet have certain clearance inside the kennel for the pet to move around.

I need it for going to the vet and for emergencies. I carry him in a large sack that some gifts came in one Christmas, but can be tricky to hold closed.

Lol Fofa, I want one for ours. 

I have one in my garage that our dog was shipped in when he was a pup and we rescued him. It's too small for our dog or cat. I can get it out over the weekend and measure it if you want try it.

hm...for ami (who weighed 13 lbs when he was underweight!) i just used a medium sized plastic dog crate. that way i knew he would fit and have room to move around. plus with him being so heavy, i didn't want him to break something smaller. it worked out really well.

ok, thanks? I measured Cowboy with a tailor's tape measure. I actually had to stretch him to full length to make sure of his size. I think I know now what to get for him. I'll probably get it from WM if I can.

I'd just get the largest cat sized one there is or one for a small dog. I can barely get mine in a carrier, they despise it and it's not big enough for when they go spread eagle and try to stick to the sides, lol.

I got the small one when my cat was a kitten and now I have 2 that are almost 16 pounds a piece.  We usually take them to the vet seperate and they can turn around and stand up but not a hole lot of room.
The ones at Walmart are much cheaper in price than any place else.

I can always get a couple of different sizes and see which one works, then return one or both.
