Really, really wish there was a size in between the 19" a 24". As a breeder shipping kittens, thanks to the ignorance of the airlines about cats and their need to hide in times of stress, I am forced to use the 24" carrier for 4# kittens. This not only makes the kitten insecure, but it adds more than $50 to the shipping cost!

Great for our rescue group. These are airline approved with the metal screws and metal door. Will buy again
Meeting airline requirements for shipping:

Generally speaking this is the best buy for a breeder when bought by the case. I like the light weight, and the slot for a seat belt in the car to secure the crate on the way to the airport. What I don't like is that the holes in the two front corners never line up accurately and I always have to redrill new holes in order to get the screw and the bolt cap to tighten up - which is an airline requirement. You would think whoever is manufacturing these would already know there is this defect - but for the second time I got a new shipment with the identical same issue. I redrill and ship them anyway because I don't have time to deal with the cumbersome warranty process with Revival Animal.
"PetMate Changed the Design & Size! 24"" is 2"" too long now. :( "

I definitely prefer the 22" instead of this new 24" Length & the new design is really Quite Flimsy compared to how sturdy they used to be. I no longer feel as confident in shipping Live Animals as air cargo in this carrier with weak construction!! NOTE: This is No Reflection on RevivalAnimal, they are OUTSTANDING in every way!!!
no dish and thin/cheap plastic

Very sad to see Petmate change their good model to this. Still compliant, and the screws are a plus for some airlines that require it. Construction is very poor, and the plastic which makes up the body of this carrier is now a lot thinner and flimsier than it has been in the past. I guess the addition of the screws required some losses to us, so NO MORE FOOOD AND WATER DISH, which effectively means if you are shipping, you have to buy their airline kit, which is an additional expense. Better option is Ruff Maxx carrier. Strangely also made by Petmate. Better price as well, and provides the dish.

Meets the need for a reliable plastic crate to ship a puppy. Roomy, easy to put together

Would prefer this product if it was a color that would not show dirt as much. It is very hard to even wash these as marks do not wash off. too light.Rating 3
Not happy with new design & quality

I have always purchased the medium size for my kitties and now with the new size it is much bigger... so the medium costs more now and they don't send food & water cups with carrier. Not happy....
Petmate Changed their Small Kennel
Sep 24, 2013 | By Patty
This review is no reflection on Revival, Revival's service is outstanding! This review speaks in regards to Petmate's decision to change their small Vari Kennel. Quite frankly I do not like it! I ship kittens all over the United States and loved the OLD style of the small kennel. The new style is cheaper made, less metal screws and no side bars, they also changed the dimensions, again a "No No!" I could never understand if something is not broke, why fix it? Shame on you Petmate, your new small Vari Kennel is a FLOP!
