I’m not a gear or gadget person and I don’t always follow the latest trends in pet products. It takes a lot to WOW me - but the Expandable Soft-Sided Pet Carrier by Smiling Paws Pets definitely WOWED me. This carrier is super cool and fun and my new favorite pet find. So much so, that I can’t stop talking (over-sharing) with cat friends about how they really need to get one of these Smiling Paws Pets carriers – it’s that amazing, the cat’s meow!

They create high-end, quality cat and dog products that provide simple solutions to everyday pet issues. Currently, they make cat litter mats, odor and stain eliminators, pet beds, and expandable carriers. Smiling Paws Pets generously sent us their Expandable Soft-Sided Carrier for Rosie to try. Rosie is petite so we went with the smaller size, which is safe for pets up to 15 pounds. The carrier is approved for airline travel and can also be strapped into a car seatbelt for safe road trips. It’s lightweight, waterproof and the wireframe can be squeezed in an inch to conform to small spaces. The mesh sides are also great for airflow. The coolest part is that is that the carrier expands four different ways for longer trips when your cat or small dog needs a little extra legroom. It transforms from carrier to kitty playhouse tent in seconds (only its much easier and faster to assemble than human tents). This carrier also folds flat and comes with a bag for easy storage. Watch the video for the full DIY kitty playhouse experience.
