Cat Strollers and Safe Strollers for Cats
Looking for a kitty stroller? Find out information about a variety of cat strollers from basic to all terrain, multi-purpose and even double strollers.
I have a nice assortment of strollers for all different needs as well as information about how to choose a cat stroller and how to introduce your cat to one.
Strollers are a great way to include your kitty when you go walking, running, hiking or dash around town doing errands.

How to Choose a Cat Stroller
When purchasing a stroller for cats, it's important to know the weight of your cat so you can choose a stroller which fits the weight.
Make sure there is good air circulation. This is easiest achieved with a covering featuring mesh.
Where do you plan to walk with the cat? If taking a walk around the block on the sidewalk, a basic stroller should do the trick. However, if planning on walking on dirt roads or taking your cat hiking with you, I would suggest an all terrain stroller.
Consider accessories such as storage areas and cup holders. How important are they for you? I know when I take my pets out, I want to be sure to have space to store water not only for my little dog and cats, but for my kids, too.

Pet Gear Pet Stroller
This stroller works well for smaller cats and for walks around the block. It has easy visibility so you can keep an eye on your cat. Convenient storage basket underneath.
Pink Pet Stroller
If you like an awning that unzips, then this could be the stroller for you. The nylon fabric is water resistant. It's easy to fold up and I like that it has two drink holders. It can hold a cat up to 25 pounds.
Red Cat Stroller
A real plus with this stroller is that the interior padding is removable and washable. Another plus is that it has ventilated windows on all sides. For cats under 25 pounds.
Tan Cat Stroller
This stroller can hold up to 30 pounds, so if you have two smaller cats that get along, they can ride in it together. Shock absorbers and rear brakes make for a smooth ride.
Designed especially for cats and small animals, this stroller will hold a cat up to 25 pounds. Folds up easily for storage.
If you have two cats who don't like sharing a space or even a cat and a small dog, you might consider a double stroller. This way you only need one stroller.
Just make sure that the stroller can handle the weight of both animals. I suggest putting the heavier animal on the bottom. These are also great for taking kittens out for some fresh air.

Pet Double Strollers
If you're looking for something basic, then this could work for you. The great part about this stroller is that the carriers can be used independently and are able to be removed from the base. Perfect for neighborhood walks.
Kittywalk is known for its safety and has won numerous awards for its products. This double stroller can hold pets up to 60 pounds. It can also double as a grooming table. If you're looking for high quality, this stroller fits the bill.

Pet Stroller Tip
Some cat strollers have more than one function. Consider if you want a stroller just for taking your cat out for a walk or if you would like additional features as well.
3 in 1 Pet stroller
This stroller has many uses for cats up to 12 pounds. Use as a stroller, as well as a car seat for your cat. You can remove the carrier section and use as a shoulder bag when going out in public. I love the way you can take your cat with you wherever you go.

Pet Stroller for Cats
There is a safety issue I would like to address. Some pet strollers are made to where you can open up a section while the cat is in the stroller. Now, you may have the world's most behaved cat who would never jump out of a stroller, but you need to be careful with other animals.
You might pass by a property with a cat who is very territorial who could try to come after your cat. You might come across a dog who loves to chase cats or an exuberant puppy who wants to play which could scare your cat away. I recommend always keeping your cat stroller closed up when taking your cat out if there is a possibility of encountering other animals.

All Terrain Strollers
If you're planning to do a lot of running, walking on uneven surfaces or hiking, consider getting an all terrain stroller.
All Terrain Cat Strollers
This stroller is very durable and good for different terrains. I like the storage it has and the way it opens and closes so easily. Holds pets up to 60 pounds.
Introducing a Cat to a Stroller
When introducing a cat to a stroller, keep in mind that each cat is different. While some cats may take to a stroller immediately, others may need some time to get used to it.
I suggest letting your cat explore the new stroller at home before taking it for a walk. If your cat is hesitant, try putting in a treat or a favorite toy. You might also try pushing the cat around the house in a stroller so the cat can get used to the movement. Once the cat is ready, the two of you can have fun walking and running together.
