With the increase in cat carrier backpacks available today, people are increasingly asking ‘Can you put a cat in a backpack?’. The simple answer is yes you can. Placing your cat in a backpack is a great way to carry your cat or kitten around with you when you go out, however it is important that you keep in mind the following points for your cat’s comfort and safety:
- Make sure your cat backpack is well ventilated and is specifically built for carrying cats.
- Make sure your backpack is big enough for your cat. Cat carrier backpacks come in a range of different sizes, from small ones for kittens to larger bags for the bigger cats, so make sure your cat has plenty of space in the bag and is not too cramped.
- If your cat has a special toy or blanket they prefer, place that in the backpack as well for extra comfort for the cat.
- Don’t keep your cat in the backpack for too long periods of time as they will need to stretch their legs and have access to water on a regular basis.
