New Year and Christmas – it’s time for gifts. But gifts should be taken care of in advance.
In the late autumn, looking at a sad cat, which, due to bad weather this year, only came out to the country with us a couple of times, it was decided to please her a little.
Cottage for a cat is a whole world. There are many secluded places where you can hide, this is a huge hunting ground and continuous entertainment. Only washing after all of this plunges into real horror, and even to find and pull a cat out of its hiding place at the gathering home is another story. In the city we live next to a birch grove, we try to walk with children every day and sometimes we take a cat with us. A walk on the street seems to be like a cat, but the harness is a stop near each blade of grass. The cat walks by itself and the walk turns into a mockery either over the cat or over the children. Most of the walk has to be carried either in the bosom or in a backpack. Carrying a cat in a closed backpack is a pleasure below average, it soon becomes boring and a clawed demon tries to gnaw the way out of the backpack. Sometimes you have time to grab at the last moment. How she manages to unzip the inside from the inside did not understand (although the closed doors in the apartment are also not an insurmountable obstacle). Even worse, when it happens under your jacket. Just like the birth of someone else. Among other things, this method is also dangerous: there are many dogs running around the grove, and ticks have been active for quite a long time lately.
There is a regular carrying, but firstly it is a fairly large plastic box, which is inconvenient in long wear, and secondly, probably, associations with long trips in the car are strong, and if sometimes pleasant to the country, more often not to the vet. Pushing a cat into a carrier rarely happens without scratches or bites, and then this long look through the bars of the cage …
Therefore, when I came across this version of the backpack, he attracted attention. As is often the case, he stayed his first in the chosen, and then in the basket and now 11.11 he successfully adjoined to some coupon.
The parcel went for a long time, until NG managed only to appear on sorting in the city, took it already on the first day of the post office operation.
A backpack arrived in a large postal bag, just wrapped in a small amount of foamed packaging, but everything came without damage.
The outer part is made of plastic, of which travel bags are often made, such as hard, but when pressed a flat surface bends slightly. The back is made of cloth, like a regular backpack. Inside were a dome of transparent plastic, a net, a ring for fixing them, a backing and a small gift — a soft fish.
The size of the backpack declared 423229 cm, if we consider all the protruding parts, then somewhere it will be. Almost the dimensions of the plastic part (about 403013cm) remain folded.
There are ventilation holes on the dome and it remains transparent even at low temperatures outside (today we walked at -10 without sweating). Plastic thickness 2-2.5 mm. I hooked up when leaving the elevator a couple of times – there was not even a scratch left.
A strip of reflective material is glued across the backpack in a small depression.
Ventilation holes, reinforced with grommets, are also on the plastic itself, on the sides at the back of the top and there is still a large hole at the bottom, taken by the net. It is cool outside, so it was decided to close the hole with a mesh (a piece of old jeans sewn from inside), although for the first time we walked without insulation and after a half-hour walk everything was ok. On the other side of the backpack in this place there is a pocket for some little things (for example, a bottle of water will enter a maximum of 0.5 liters).
On the back there are soft inserts for comfort and better ventilation, the inner side of the straps is trimmed in the same way. Outside the strap reinforced sling along the entire length. For carrying there is also a convenient handle with a rubber insert on top. There was practically no smell from plastic, but there was a bit of rubber.
On the back of the backpack inside there is a carabiner on a rubberized sling, you can use it for keys or hang a toy for a pet. As you can see, the fabric is electrified and some wool remains on it, but everything is easily removed.
We straighten the backpack, velcro the outer and the back part, at the bottom we place the substrate with artificial wool going in the set and everything is ready for the first walk. Closes the zipper backpack, two dogs.
The weight is consistent with the stated, i.E. About 1.2 kg. Sitting on his back is normal, does not cause discomfort. The specified pet weight is 8kg. It looks like the truth, the backpack is made quite qualitatively. All seams are sewn normally, although the threads in some places stick out.
IMHO the cat in the backpack is comfortable enough, at least the look does not betray the desire to kill. The muzzle periodically appears in the dome, looking around, the nose flashes in one then in the other hole – the cat takes part in the walk, and does not get into the carrying angle. And at home he does not run away, headlong when he opens the zipper, but gradually goes to the bowl to relieve stress. All the same, she looks a little scared from all this movement around.
