Unfortunately, I had to return this, it was unbelievably small! My cat is only 8.5 pounds and there was no way he would fit in it.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I have a 10 lb kitty who hates carriers - she goes a little crazy when faced with a traditional cat carrier. This one is perfect for her - she curls up in a ball and hides from the world. I can top load her (huge help) and she feels as safe as she ever does when outside of home.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Cat hates carriers

I had to put my cat in via the top opening and since my cat hates carriers this was too difficult. The opening in front was small and my cat would not go in. The picture has a large opening but it was very small. I do not see how a 20 lb animal could fit in there. My cat is only 9 lbs.
I am returning the item.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Best Carrier Ever.

I can't tell you how many people have seen my cat carrier and been awed by it.
My cat is a shelter girl who HATED being in a cage, and still (even after years) associates being put in a front-loading carrier with the shelter. Getting her to vet appointments was terrible (I had to budget half an hour to get her in a carrier, even using a blanket to wrap her), and the traditional carrier often resulted in missed appointments--not to mention a very sulky kitty.
This top-loading carrier made all that hassle go away. Immediately. I pick Pepper up, put her in the carrier top, and zip her in. End of story. No more complicated cage latches or having to re-assemble a carrier with cat inside. She still doesn't love to travel, but at least now she doesn't feel trapped in her carrier. The door flap in front ensures that at the vet's office she can get in and out of her carrier at will when she needs to feel safe. It buckles in a car seat so much easier and snugger than a regular carrier, too--an added bonus!
This is worth the 60 dollar price tag, especially if you and your cat battle over the carrier. I would especially recommend it for adopted cats coming home from a shelter--they've already seen too much of cages and plastic cage-like carriers! My cat is accustomed to being spoiled; even so, this is one of the best purchases I ever made.
I would recommend this to a friend!
