The Hatch Pet Carrier. Comfort for Your Cat and You!


The Hatch Pet Carrier

When Gracey needed to visit the Morris Veterinary Clinic, which was frequently due to her health issues, the trip to the office was stressful not only for her but for Paul and I as well.  We hated to see Gracey so upset and crying in her carrier.  I would try to unlatch the door to her carrier to comfort her but she would try to force her way out and that was worrisome to us too!

We resorted to sticking a pinky finger through the grid to provide a reassuring touch but let’s face it, a pinky isn’t ideal when you need your hand to provide comfort to your cat.

When I heard about the new Hatch Pet Carrier, the first and only pet carrier with a patented no-escape Direct Reach hatch, I was eager to learn more and I thought you would find this interesting too. This new carrier sounded like a great idea for vet visits for Annie, Eddie and Mercy. This pet carrier was created by a cat lover and animal rescuer and advocate so that our beloved cats could be comforted during stressful times in a safe manner.  What a brilliant idea for our cats and us.

The Hatch Pet Carrier’s Patented Direct Reach no-escape Feature

The Hatch Pet Carrier’s  patented Direct Reach no-escape feature allows you to pet your cat without risk of your cat escaping. Simply turn the knob on the side of the carrier to open the access hatch. This creates an opening big enough for you to slide your hand inside the carrier to give your cat a pet, but not allowing the cat to escape. No more worries when unzipping or unlatching to try and comfort your kitty.

The Hatch Pet Carrier provide a safe environment for your cat to hide inside yet be able to see what is going on outside the carrier.  Your reassuring touch will help to keep your cat calm and help stop your own heart from racing from worrying about your cat.
