In case you don't read the comments, Teahater found the spiffy pet carrier!
It's available through Feline Fantasies in 3 colors, for $79.99 plus $6.00 shipping (UPS Ground). That's only about $10 more than what we paid for one about 10 years ago.
Yep, I was verrrrry happy.
I immediately placed an order to be sure we'd have it before we leave here.
We'll keep the old one, too, so that Max can have one always available to snooze in. He won't admit it publically, I'm sure, but he loves it (well, we'll see how much he loves if later...)
