I am considering purchasing a pet stroller to walk my cat. It is obvious he is interested in the outdoors, but I wonder if he will enjoy being strolled? I am interested in hearing anyone's stories or advice. My only concern is overstressing him. (He is a 2 year old, indoor cat.) Let me know what you think!

I have two v. small yorkies (2lbs and 4lbs) I am interested in the kitty walk stroller. Do you think I ned to get the SUV one or would the regular size have enough space for the two?

At 6 pounds combined the small Kittywalk regular should fit both dogs comfortably, but you may also want to consider how energetic your Yorkies are. If they like to play a lot, then they may appreciate the extra space in the SUV; however, the regular Kittywalk should be more than enough for your two small pets.

We have a customer who uses her pet stroller for her two cats--that collectively weigh 18 pounds--and they are quite comfortable in the regular stroller. They like to cozy up together quite a bit, so the small space was perfect for their needs.

Hope this helps!

I have a 20 lb. schnauzer and a 12 lb. shih tzu. Will they both fit in the all terrain model? Would they fit in the pink stroller?

Thanks for question, Anonymous. (What a funny name!)

Okay, seriously, my recommendation would be that the AT3 has plenty of room for a 20-pound Schnauzer and a 12-pound Shih Tzu. The Happy Trails (pink or blue) might also be fine, but it depends how much they like each other.

The AT3 has an enclosure that is approximately 28" by 14.5". The Happy Trails has an enclosure that is 24" x 12". The difference doesn't sound like a lot, but it's almost an additional square foot.

We have customers who use the pink pet stroller for two cats, but I haven't personally seen one used for two dogs. (That being said, we've sold a lot of the Happy Trails--it's our most popular brand--so I'm sure there are folks using them for two dogs.)

Not sure if I'm helping much since I can't give you a definite yes or no, but I'll say this--if your two dogs aren't overly active, are polite to each each other, don't mind being in close proximity, and if you're thinking of a pet stroller only for brief jaunts, then I think the pink pet stroller might work. On the other hand, if they have a sense of their own personal space with each other and are active, or if you intend to use the pet stroller for longer periods of time, I'd recommend the additional space and comfort of the AT3.

Take care!
