Time to travel with kitty? Don’t stress; just
compress with the Sleepypod Air. It contracts to fit into the space below airline
seats for takeoff and landing, then expands
so your cat can stretch out. And, it folds
flat for storage. Your feline can feel fine
with the ultra-plush bedding that has a
removable and washable cover. Two large
zipper pockets stow your cat’s stuff, and
the shoulder strap and handle have padding. Seat-belt straps make it car-friendly.
