Hello everyone,
I thought I would do a mini review of our carrier we used for Pepper & Pringles big trip up North. They were in the carrier for 6 hours on the way up and 4.5 hours on the way back.
This is the carrier we bought from amazon (currently unavailable but they have very similar) MOVEPEAK Pet Carrier for DogsCatsPuppy with Airline Approved - Expandable Soft sided Pet Tote Carriers BagsFolding Pets Kitten Totes Cats Carriers BagsPortable Pet Supply Carrier Bags For Puppies: Amazon.co.uk: Pet Supplies

Here is the bag when it’s open, it gave the piggies a good amount of space to move around, even though they thought sitting on top of each other was the best way to travel! We put some fleece in the bottom to try to protect it however our boys decided burrowing under that would be more fun!

The inside is furry, the middle section comes out and you can wash however annoyingly the side pieces do not so I have used some 1001 stain remover on those to clean it.

Pros:
Good price
Good size when the sides are open and also folds up small when not in use
Lots of zip openings
Strap goes around the headrest so they were secure in the car
Cons:
Not all elements can be removed to be washed
Lots of small places for poops to get caught in!
Overall we were very happy with the bagthe pigs spent most of the time in the side pieces which I think they felt secure in, they did go for the odd wander round. Cleaning is a bit of a pain but it has come up well after I have cleaned it this morning.

I think I may try to modify it by adding some Velcro strips that I can Velcro a piece of fleece on which would stop them from burrowing and would keep the poops on the fleece.

This looks more comfy than the plastic one I have for my piggy. Does it fit well on the car seats?

Yes it fits on our car seats no problem (we have a polo) it does stretch over to the middle seat so you can probably only have one passenger, and then we hook the long strap around the headrest to keep them secure!

I have the same carrier!
Mine is blue and black and the piggies love it!
My piggies agree that the best way to travel is on top of one another...so why did I buy the biggest size?!...

Pepper & Pringle agree on top of each other is defiantly the best way and under all the fleece and waterproof layers to of course!
