I've had a 4.5'x5.5' tent for a few years that I can use to confine a cat for a short period of time. I just ordered this as an additional source. It works for travel or for queening or even confining a new arrival while in quarantine or while introducing to your other cats. It's perfect because it folds up flat after use and you can take it outside and soap it up and hose it off afterwards to keep it fresh. It also serves as an outside playpen for kittens when you want them to have fresh air. I think everyone who owns cats could benefit from having one (and no, I do not get commission, lol). One caveat, there are less expensive ones that have a Velcro bottom and those absolutely should not be trusted to a Savannah who will quickly figure out how to disengage it and set themselves free.

Cool! Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking for something to put in the back of our truck to acclimate our kids to being driven. I will have to measure to see if it fits.

It's just 46" wide at any given point so I think it would fit. However, it is very lightweight so you woul dhave to buckle it down with something heavy, or put rocks in it. lol

Thanks, Lorre! I love these tents. I sent one home once with a kitten that had to travel a lengthy distance and it worked great, as well as a being a safe area so the baby girl (a shy kitten) could bond with her new owners once home, and be contained and feel safe and large enough for a bed, litter box and food, water and toys.

For Rafiki: if this octagonal tent does not fit in your truck, you could try one of these:

I have the Sturdi Show Shelter, and along with using it at shows, I use it as a queen birthing crate, and also for when I travel long distances, the longest being 10 hours one way....this pop-up tent fits nicely across the length of car seat. I can also buckle it in through the handles on top.

I was looking at the sturdi yesterday. Do any of you know what the difference is between the show shelter and the Car-go one? It sounds like you can anchor the show shelter thru the top handles the same way as the Car-go one. The center divider would be removed in either case - Rafiki would go nuts if she could not snuggle up to Jammu. This would be for our truck and it has the crew cab so it is pretty roomy.

The Car-Go style is smaller and built to sit on a car seat, the show shelter is larger/wider and hangs of the edge of most car seats.
