4.0 out of 5 stars Cat Carrier good but removal of pet for security check is necessary, March 11, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sherpa Delta Deluxe Pet Carrier Medium Black (Misc.)
I am very pleased with my carriers. I have not encountered the problem with the zippers that is mentioned in another review but will recheck them for sure. Yes, putting the cat in and walking around the house with them is important to getting them used to it instead of jamming the cat in and taking off. Cats do not like surprises. ** Be aware that you must take the cat out of the carrier and carry him/her through security and have the carrier pass through x-ray. This is not easy for someone who is not *very* familiar with handling a terrified cat on a maiden voyage in the airport. Like the fact that it looks like an ordinary carry on bag.

Take a pillow sack with you next time you go to the airport. Show security the empty pillow sack, remove the cat from the carrier and place the cat in the pillow sack in the presence of security. You can then keep the cat in the sack and place the entire sack in the carrier until you can sit down at the gate and remove the sack.

Thanks for the info. Yes, I couldn't imagine trying to get my cat out of the bag and then back inside while inside the loud busy airport......I can barely take him down in my noisy building elevator and through the noisy lobby full of screaming kids (while in the pet carrier) without him trying to rip me to sheds. Both my vets suggested the "pillow sack" solution which seems to calm him down.

At the gate ID check explain to the TSA agent that you are carrying a cat and are nervous about taking it out of the carrier and that you think it would be safest to do a "private screening." You will be directed to the TSA supervisor for that screening area. Ask that individual if they can do a private screening of the carrier. They will get someone to take the carrier (with cat) into a small room. You go through the regular checkpoint security (with your other luggage) and meet them (and another TSA agent) in the room. You take the cat out of the carrier and one of the agents will run the empty carrier through the x-ray machine while you hold your cat. The TSA always offers individuals the option of doing a private screening so they are set up for this, and they don't want your cat running around the gate area any more then you do! I found them super helpful and accommodating. Just realize that they have to round up a couple of agents for you in order to do this, so get to the gate extra early.
