It’s no secret that our favorite carrier is the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed, hands down. When we got our first Sleepypod several years ago, it was a game-changer. At that point, Sophie was our only adventure cat, and while she enjoyed her outings, she HATED riding in the car. She would sing the song of her people the entire car ride and make the experience miserable for everyone. Once we got a Sleepypod, everything changed.
What is a Sleepypod?
The Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed is not just one thing. It is actually THREE products in one! It is a:
- comfy pet bed
- innovative carrier
- safe car seat
The Sleepypod: A Comfy Pet Bed
It’s not uncommon for cats to hate their carriers and/or riding in the car. The sight of the carrier oftentimes sends them running under the bed. In many cases, this is because the carrier only comes out for trips to the vet, so it is associated with negative experiences.
One of the coolest parts about the Sleepypod is that the top zips off to create a cushy, plush-lined bed that can be left around the house for your cat to enjoy any time. Then when it comes time to going somewhere, you just zip the top back on, and your cat gets to travel in the comfort of her own bed!
We have multiple Sleepypods, and they are always lying around our house. At least one of the kitties can be found napping in them at any given time. This has helped Sophie be more comfortable with her car rides for sure. She frequently seeks out the Sleepypods at nap time, so she now associates them with something positive.
The Sleepypod: An Innovative Carrier
Not only does the Sleepypod make for a cozy bed, it is also an awesome carrier with a unique and innovative design. Rather than having a front-loading door, the Sleepypod has a mesh-dome top. This top allows your cat to have a full view of her surroundings while riding inside. A limited field of view like most carriers have is something that often contributes to a cat’s uneasiness when it comes to their carrier. The Sleepypod removes that problem completely.
I know Sophie appreciates the view from her Sleepypod! Not being able to see us was definitely something that stressed her out when riding in the car, but she doesn’t have that problem anymore!
The Sleepypod: A Safe Car Seat
If you aren’t already a fan of the Sleepypod, just wait until you hear about its safety features. We saved the best for last, we promise! The Sleepypod has velcro straps that secure it into the seat of your car. And get this: it has been crash tested at the same standard set for child safety restraints! Every Sleepypod carrier includes the Pet Passenger Restraint System as well, which is a safety system designed by Sleepypod to secure a pet in a vehicle and restrict harmful movement resulting from a sudden vehicle stop or frontal collision.
Since we travel with the KCC Adventure Team, which sometimes includes long road trips, I am especially grateful for these safety features. I can rest easy knowing that my kitties are traveling as safely as possible!
But wait, there’s more!
The Sleepypod really has it all! Not only are they comfortable, innovative, and safe, they are super stylish! The Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed comes in 8 fun colors: Sky Blue, Robin Egg Blue, Blossom Pink, Strawberry Red, Dark Chocolate, Jet Black, Arctic White (Medium Only), and Violet.
Other features of the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed:
- The removable, ultra plush bedding is machine-washable.
- The exterior is easy to clean and made of luggage-grade, ballistic nylon.
- It has an adjustable shoulder strap with comfort padding, a padded carry handle, and ergonomic zipper pulls.
