Your Cat Will Travel In Style and Safety With The Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed (And A Giveaway!)


Going to the vet is never easy for my cats – or me! Getting Lola and Lexy into their carriers is a trying experience for all three of us, not to mention exiting the carriers when it’s time for them to be examined. Lola will (usually) come out willingly and greet everyone, but not Lexy. When it’s her turn to be examined I have to dismantle the carrier, and then put it back together before she can go back in. By the time our vet visit is over all three of us are ready for a nap! 



Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed

I had been eyeing the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed for some time and when I had the opportunity to partner with Sleepypod for a review, this cat mom was happy!

Hey! That cat looks like me! 

The Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed is three products in one. It’s a carrier, a safe car seat, and a bed.  I love this because Lexy can travel to the vet in the comfort of one of her favorite beds with all the smells of home. It’s familiar to her, so it reduces her stress. (And mine!) 


Getting ready for our trip to the vet was easier than ever. All I had to do was zip the dome onto the base, put her in, and then zip the top of the dome closed. 1.. 2.. 3! Now that was something that has never happened in the seven years Lexy and I have been together.

"Why do I get the feeling I'm going somewhere?"

No more dismantling the carrier to get her out! All I have to do is unzip the top of the dome so I can reach in and pick her up.

"I'm in the middle of a nap, here. Can you come back later?"

When it was time to go home I just dropped her right back in closed it up.

Sleepypod recommends introducing your pet to the carrier before you go on your first adventure. I unzipped the dome and placed the base in one of Lexy’s favorite sleeping places. If there’s one thing Lexy loves, it’s a comfy bed. She took to it immediately and started sleeping in it every night (and still does.)

I really love how stylish this carrier is. I think it’s the perfect carrier for a city dweller to use to transport their cat anywhere.

I always worry about dropping the carrier when I’m walking from the car to the building, and because Lexy is a little heavy for me to carry (at almost 13 pounds) I’m frequently switching hands.The shoulder strap makes carrying her much easier and I don't worry about anything happening to the carrier. I live in a third-floor walk-up, and I’m always struggling on the steps, but thanks to the Sleepypod I'm able to manage much better.

When my boyfriend and I were waiting to cross the street, a woman walking by commented to her husband that she had never seen a carrier like this, and loved it.

Let's talk about safety. Sleepypod devotes careful and caring attention to each detail in every product. Safety is Sleepypod’s top priority, and theSleepypod Mobile Pet Bed passed the Child Safety Seat Standard Collision Test. 





The best safety feature is the PPRS (Pet Passenger Restraint System). 


Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed




The PPRS Handilock evolved as a result of variances in test results by Sleepypod and the Center for Pet Safety. Sleepypod tested its Sleepypod mobile pet bed without the PPRS Handilock at two NHTSA contracted laboratories with success. The 15 pound crash test pet remained in the Sleepypod, on the test bench, for the duration of the test, and without rotation.


I'm nervous driving with my girls in the car because I want them to be safe. When I buckled Lexy in, I was more than happy with how secure she was.

"I love how I can see the world from my new carrier!"

And when I compared her carrier next to Lola's, I realized how much safer and more secure she was. I'll definitely be looking into getting one for Lola. 


The Sleepypod Medium weighs 4.5 pounds, is 17" in diameter and is 13.5" high with the dome. (The bed is 6.5" tall).

  1. I have a Sleepypod, and it is SO handy for my therapy visits when I go to college campuses, and when I go to the local cat shows. Not only is it a carrier, it's an instant bed for me to sit in and hang out and visit in! It was like an awesome game changer.

  4. Those things sure do look nice but we have actually never seen a real one, just photos!

  5. Congratulations on receiving your Sleepypod! We love ours and the vets always compliment us on how easy it is to work with the girls with this carrier. We won't enter because we already have one and we'll be hosting a giveaway within the next couple of weeks. We hope Lola is doing better.

  7. WoW! I had not realized they can be buckled into a seat belt! What a great idea! Having traveling cats, and having traveled with cats for over 30 years, I'll have to check these out.

  9. We purchased those big, boxy carriers when Angel and Chuck were kittens, and I've hated them for all these years! The Sleepypod looks good enough for ME to sleep in! WANT!

  10. I dunno. I'd have to think about the color after I won. This was a great review. This is the first time TW has seen that there is a zipper on the top where you put the cat in. She was wondering how you got the cat to stay while you zipped the dome on. HAH! Silly humans.

  11. My fur baby would love the Robin Egg Blue color.

  12. I have been wanting to get one of these, but can't afford one right now. I love the color you chose, very pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  13. wow i cuds reely travel in styles, Red, red, red

    ReplyDelete
  14. We want the purple one! But if it's not available, then either the red or brown.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've been eyeing the purple one :) Love the chocolate brown too. It looks fitting for a tortie!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Mango would love the Robin Egg blue one!! He is 6 months old now and is in training to be a model like his older brothers. He has one magazine cover and a fashion photo spread in another magazine. So safe travel is a must for us!!!

  17. Love robin egg blue or strawberry ref.

    ReplyDelete
  18. We have looked at these on other blogs. We want the purple one like Brulee had!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've been thinking about getting 1 of these more and more lately as we seem to be making a lot of trips to the vet. I love blue so I'd pick the Robin Egg Blue.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The chocolate brown sounds pretty! I hope one day I have a Sleepypod for each of my 4 kitties.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've been stalking SleepyPod contests/giveaways because I want one so badly! At 13.5 pounds, Bear is pretty much too big for our other carrier - and he's the one I get a workout from just getting him in there. Then the vet has to take it apart to get him out. I'd love the chocolate brown!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love how colorful these are! The turquoise is so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I LOVE the SleepyPod and so wish we could have one. Thank you for telling about the seatbelt for safety.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love the colors, but I would go with jet black.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've seen these and have always been interested but never really new all the really great features until your post! I really like the fact that they're so safe and that they make getting kitty in and out a little easier. All the colors are so nice but I would choose Blossom Pink.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like the arctic white color. It'd look great with both of my cats.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like the Jet Black .. black goes with everything!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would choose the Strawberry Red! mindy_delisi@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  29. Red for me. Those look so nice.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think I'd pick the Sky Blue color if I'm lucky enough to win.

    ReplyDelete
  31. We love the Sleepypod carriers, and we believe that each kitty should have their own to make evacuations possible. Since we added Cupcake to the family, we haven't added a round Sleepypod carrier for her, and pink would be perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  32. We would like the Robin Egg Blue. We love the one we have and would love to have another one. We are one carrier short if we need to evacuate.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have one but I have six cats.. I could totally use another

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love the beautiful styling of this carrier, it's so unique! But the best part is the car safety aspect of it, I love that. Great product. Excellent review. I'm definitely entering your contest!

    1. OOPS, I forgot to say what color I'd like if I won - any color is great but I guess pink or blue would be my fave. Thanks!

  35. I have heard so many good things about Sleepypod carriers. Perhaps this is the solution to getting my girl Eddy to the vet. She is a bit of a nightmare, you could say, when it comes to getting her into a traditional carrier. Thank you for sharing this with us! (Oh, and purple is my favorite color, so that's likely the color I'd choose!)

  36. I think our cats would like the Robin Egg blue. Mine are all seniors now, and this would work well. I have 5 who were all socialized ferals who couldnt find homes for various reasons (mostly medical)

  37. I love these and have been reading about them and following you of course, I would love to win either the violet or pink as those are the colors of collars and harnesses that Layla wears all the time. This is such a great product

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the robin's egg blue color! I usually have to have my husband put our cat, Peanut Butter, into her carrier for a trip to the vet, and she hates it! She fights against us every time, so I'm definitely interested in the sleepypod carrier. Just putting her in it and zipping it closed would be so much nicer than the usual battle we go through! I also love that they've crash tested the sleepypod. Road safety is important, as we do travel a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have been wanting a SleepyPod for my cats for awhile now. I really need to just go for it and get them for my lovelies! They look SUPER comfortable and the shape is perfect! They look to be so sturdy too!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Strawberry red for me please, it's gorgeous, and I grew up on a strawberry farm!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a great product and giveaway. I've only ever heard great things. Hmm if I had to choose ... red or chocolate is nice. Very stylish too.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Sadie and Shiloh are always so frightened when they go to the vet. The Sleepypod looks like a carrier that they would be MUCH more at ease in! Sadie would choose the blue one...to match her eyes of course :) Thanks for all of your info!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love the light blue color. Roxie sings at the top of her lungs on the way to the vet, and the plastic carriers are not car secure, which means louder anguished singing all 5 blocks to the vet. This would solve a few problems!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love these things! I've seen them around. They seem so sturdy and yet compact and comfortable. Cute colors too! - Shelby G.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Now I just need them to make one for my 60 pound dog, with wheels haha! I like that its their home! Some where they can feel safe and because they are used to it they don't have to be anxious about the pod when they are being transported or being taken to the vet!

    ReplyDelete
  46. love the robin egg blue!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would love to have one of these I've known about them for quite some time. And as a city dweller I understand the 3 flight walk up, ours is only 2 but Rhette weighs at least 17lbs so I wonder if he is too heavy for it. I know the dogs are! Sandra and Dolly

    1. I'd probably go with black but love the turquoise!

  48. Sleepy pod looks stylish and comfy, I wish there was something like this for dogs too!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh wow! This looks absolutely perfect. My little tiny (a terrier) is terrified of the vet and we use a big crate carrier. He's cat-sized, so I may need to look into this for him. Great suggestion!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have seen this carrier before and think its an awesome idea instead of the bulky carriers. Willow would love this for sure! I love the turquoise color!
