Carrier recommendations please :)

Post by izzerie » Fri Jul 15, 2011 5:07 pm

I have a group of five big older boys which is soon to expand to seven. I'm looking for a carrier to accommodate around this number (a couple more would be great) for vets trips and cage clean outs. I am anticpating that I will have to take all of them to the vets fairly regularly as none of my boys keep their claws short and we have group trimming seasons at the vets :roll: plus some of them are getting on so I imagine several of them will be going to vets at once. I also don't want anything too bulky as I don't drive so get to the vets by bus.

Anyone have any recommendations? I did think about a cabrio, I have one for my bunny and I quite like it but it's quite pricey!

Do you specifically want separate carriers? You could just use your cabrio for the rats to?

I would like separate ones because woodshavings and hay and stuff for my bunny goes in there and I don't want the ratties coming into contact with it. Also sometimes hubby and I clean animals at the same time and therefore the cabrio might be occupied.

So yeah, separate carriers would be good :)
