Sleepypod Pet Bed, Carrier, Car Seat!
I just have to share this item with you! Another featured product for Pets on Parade! I LOVE it! It is called Sleepypod ($179.99) and is designed to be a pet bed, carrier, and car seat all in one. The top is removable, with a very sturdy zipper, so you can use it first of all as a bed for your pet. And let me tell you the liner, also removable, is super soft! We took a couple of pictures with one of the puppies in it. We also had the cat get in as this is hers, but because we have two teenage boys visiting she wasn't very happy to come out of her hiding place right now. It always takes her a couple of days to settle in with company. The Sleepypod is very well made and sturdy.
To use as a carrier, just zip the well-ventilated top on and make sure your shoulder strap is attached. Place your pet inside and zip shut. You are ready to go! The Sleepypod will hold a small dog (up to 12.5 lb) or a cat (up to 15 lb). This is so easy to use. The clips that attach the shoulder strap are also sturdy. To use as a car seat just place the carrier in your vehicle and use the seat belt to strap it in.
I want you to be sure and check out their page that describes the safety test they ran on the Sleepypod. I am impressed!

How was Sleepypod started:
In 2004, Melony Lee was looking for a way to travel with her first kitten, Bengal Rawl Rawl, but was disappointed by the existing products offered in the market. Inspired by a commitment to her pet and a passion for design, Melony and fellow Art Center College of Design graduate, Michael Leung, focused on researching and developing an ideal carrier prototype for Rawl Rawl to test. The result was better than expected. Rawl Rawl adapted to the flexible travel environment with ease and enthusiasm.
Yet as enthusiastic as Rawl Rawl was about her new environment, wherever she traveled in it, pet owners were evenmore enthusiastic to see this new invention. This unexpected reaction prompted Michael and Melony to make it a commercial product. Setting on a course to “perfect the design,” the partners went through more than a dozen revisions before finally achieving a product to
their high standards for design and functionality. When the design was almost finalized after a year and a half, the two decided to join forces with another Art Center College of Design graduate, Greg Mote. The threesome formalized their partnership by forming a company called Meowme in 2005 and naming its new invention “Sleepypod.” Meowme officially changed its company name to Sleepypod in September 2008.
