The Curvations Carrier is just about the cutest small dog or cat carrier I have ever seen. It looks like a 50s hat box or make up case. An adorable carrier bag for your adorable pet. It's sturdy and gives the pet inside a feeling of security, though he or she can see out from all sides.
One very nice thing about the Curvations Carrier is that it folds down to a very slim profile, so you can store it anywhere, and you can quick-change it back into being a carrier in about a minute. It's perfect for traveling -- just toss it into a suitcase or bag for an instant kennel. If you are capable of zipping up a winter jacket, you are capable of putting the Curvations Carrier together.
The top and bottom are separate pieces, and they zip together when you want to store the carrier, with the sides of the carrier (as one piece) and the bottom cushion sandwiched between them. When you want to carry your dog or cat somewhere, you simply unzip the top from the bottom, then zip each (top and bottom) to the sides. Ok, I'm not explaining it well -- it's so easy to do, you'll understand the minute you see it.
My only beef with this carrier is that it's not big enough for my 3 dogs! This is for dogs or cats 10 pounds (or so) and under. Please, Petmate, make a larger size! I want to use this with my furry friends.
Other than the size issue (for my pets), I give this carrier a huge paws up for form and fashion meeting function. I'm a fan of Petmate in general, and they have created a winner with this small carrier.
