Sleepypod Pet Bed, Carrier, Car Seat!


Hey Neighbors!

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.


The bed base is made of luggage grade ballistic nylon and has a machine washable liner.  The Sleepypod base is padded so your pet can travel comfortably.  Another great feature is, there are accessories for the Sleepypod, like a warmer you can place under the liner, to keep your pet warm in cooler weather.  For hot weather they have a mesh liner you can replace the plush liner with for more comfort.  They also have a Critter Kit available where you can transport a ferret, guinea pig or chinchilla, etc.  that is designed to be used with the Sleepypod Mini. It has a mesh hammock and a litter tray!



I want you to be sure and check out their page that describes the safety test they ran on the Sleepypod.  I am impressed!


About Sleepypod:
 Your pet deserves the best and we at Sleepypod aim to provide the most secure and comfortable products for pets at home and on the go. Every product from Sleepypod has been thoroughly tested and approved by our own experts in the field: RawlRawl, Dee-Dee, Stevens and Oni. We hope you and your companions will enjoy living with Sleepypod as much as we do.


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.

Wow, what a neat idea. I love that it is a pet bed that you can zip and transport them in. I also like that you can purchase replacement liners to suit your pet's particular needs.

Emily W said...

I love that it has a washable liner, that it doubles as a bed and car seat, and that it's so gosh darn adorable! This is going on my wish list for sure!

Eileen said...

My first instinct was ick...how do you CLEAN this thing with wet pets or possible accidents? (we have a tiny Yorkie who gets VERY nervous in the car). But then reading the specs and seeing it has a removable washable liner, that is the feature that sold me most!

thanks much!
