My furbabies and I have been so fortunate to work with Petmate several times now, so I was very excited when they sent me their new See & Extend Carrier last Spring to product review! Unfortunately, we received it right around when our orange kitty Eva unexpectedly died, and so this review and others were put on hold. We have been using it, and now I’m feeling like I can write some reviews here and there as I have been. Honestly, this one was especially hard for me to do because Eva would have been the perfect kitty model for it due to her coloring and attitude. But as you’ll see, Basia did just fine modeling. She learned from the best.

Thus, this See & Extend Carrier is a secure carrier with an extra side vestibule, which is what drew my eyes to it in the first place! It’s a colorful combination of both navy blue and lime green. The large zip-out mesh vestibule provides pets with extra room and comfort with an extra 9″ of space for him or her to relax, and the carrier’s overall size is 18″ x 11″ x 11″. It also has two tote straps and a padded shoulder strap for easy carrying during travel, a side pocket to stash toys and treats, an interior safety tether, and a top and side access for easy pet entry! Petmate sells lots of other great products for dogs, cats, and birds, like bedding, toys, treats, collars, and feeders, just to name a few.

Here are a few photos of our new See & Extend Carrier:

The verdict? I really like quite a few things about this See & Extend Carrier from Petmate. First off, I like the colors a lot! It seems that I get sent mostly black and grey carriers to review, so this was definitely pretty, fun, and different! I can imagine that while traveling that the bold and bright lime green would never be able to stray far from your line of vision. I also like the strong mesh that surrounds part of the carrier. I don’t feel that most pets would be able to chew through it easily, so that’s a definite plus with regards to safety. Speaking of such, I also like the sturdy zippers that I feel wouldn’t get loosened while you’re out and about with your pet as well as its interior safety tether just in case they were to. And I think the best part, obviously, is the amazing side vestibule itself! I’m always worried about my furbabies being safe and about what I can do more in that arena, but this is something that can give them extra room and comfort in a snap! So if I can easily provide that to them, then why not, right? My only issue with this carrier is the size limit. I don’t think that it holds fifteen pounds comfortably; I think up to ten pounds is more accurate. If you purchase this product, please let me know what you think!

** Please note that the See & Extend does not have seat belt loops, and the icon and wording on the box was a mistake on Petmate’s part. It has since been corrected and will be fixed going forward, but older versions of the packaging will still have that feature mentioned.

(Full disclosure – Petmate provided this item to us free of charge in exchange for a product review. Thanks!)
