Traveling with your cat is becoming more and more popular. Cat Backpacks are all the rage right now. These type of carriers are becoming a more comfortable and convenient way for cat owners to transport their pets. We even use them at the Modern Cat offices!

Here are some of the best cat backpacks we found.

    Love the colors and designs !!

    We moved from a bubble backpack to the Petsfit one listed here and are overall really happy with it. Our cat finds it very comfortable for hikes and enjoys all the different ways she can look out. I personally wish it had a few pockets. There’s room for some, and maybe a water bottle holder on the strap. There don’t seem to be any backpacks that offer so much viewing space that also include pockets.
