I used to have two carriers for the cats: a large hard plastic one, and a smaller soft-sided one. The smaller carrier is fine for short trips, but I think it's a little too cramped for longer drives, like when we go up to Geoff's house. So, I got another larger carrier. The only one at the pet store that met my specifications was in the dog section, but Melly didn't seem to mind, and was in the carrier before I'd even finished assembling it.
Scarlett has a deep and abiding hatred for her carrier, but even she had to check out the new one.
She let Melly do the close-up work, though.
I think Melly approves of her new carrier.
Later in the evening, a couple of hours after the previous photos were taken, I discovered this:
Apparently not all carriers are evil!
