If it moves, it dies.
Here's one for your #catgoals.
A revolutionary cat carrier, one that is like a drawer so getting a cat in and out of it will be easy, is in the works and should be shipping in December if the inventors get their much-needed crowdfunding.
The Glover family from the United States is running an Indiegogo campaign to raise $100,000 next month so they could finalize production and shipping of the MagiCarrier.
The MagiCarrier is designed to end the struggle that ensues every time a person tries to load a defiant cat or other small pet into a carrier. The MagiCarrier's main chamber can slide out so a person only need to put a cat or other smaller animal inside it and then push it back in.
With the MagiCarrier, one no longer need to force a pet into a carrier again. Getting them out is also just as easy. The inventors said “the sliding action acts on an animal's natural instinct to crouch down and hang on when the floor beneath them is moved. When their center of balance is disrupted and they lose their footing, they don't try to jump or run until they are steady.”
HOW IT WORKS
This first slide-out cat carrier helps cats remain calmer, especially when they are visiting their veterinarians.
Simply place a cat in the open drawer, and slide it in! The cat will be focused on maintaining its balance and will be safely secured and ready for travel before it realizes what happened.
The MagiCarrier has a snap-lock made of metal pins. Turning the handle engages the snap-lock and locks the sliding drawer into place to ensure safe travel.
The sliding drawer is walled all the way to the back so the cat can not try to keep out of human's reach as they usually do with ordinary cat carriers. Once the MagiCarrier's drawer slides out, the cat goes with it. The edges of the drawer are raised at least six inches high to avoid paws from getting pinched or stuck when the drawers move.
The inventors promise to give those who will help them in their Indiegogo campaign some nifty items that they have previously developed such as K-Kat metal wire litter scooper and KittiKot disposable cat beds.
Devoted cat lovers know the struggle is real and this product is something they can use. The MagiCarrier will retail for $79, but crowdfunders will be given handsome discounts. As of posting (16 days to go before campaign ends), the Glovers have raised $28,378 from 201 backers.
