There are plenty of pet strollers for cats on the market today, so to help you with your decision, we are reviewing the Post Pet Stroller by BestPet in order to help you make a decision as to whether this stroller is a good fit for you and your feline’s needs.
Many people consider cats to be solely indoor animals, and for good reason! There are plenty of dangers outdoors for cats – including larger animals and cars, and unattended cats can actually cause issues with the local wildlife population. Therefore, if you do have a cat that insists on spending time outside, it is important to keep them under constant supervision. Thankfully, this is where a pet stroller for cats come in handy, and the Posh Pet Stroller is a great option for many.
This article will discuss basic product information, pros and cons, and any other things you should consider when deciding whether or not to make this purchase.

The Posh Pet Stroller is good for a lot of different reasons, but one of the biggest draws of this particular stroller for cats is the simplicity. While it may be too simple for some, the simple design and features are a draw for many; it does not feature the bells and whistles can end up being more cumbersome than helpful.
Another huge draw of this stroller is the low height of the carriage. This carriage is significantly closer to the ground compared to many of the other strollers for both cats and dogs we have reviewed recently. This means that if your cat is unable to jump for whatever reason- age, illness, or handicap – it is easy for your cat to get in and out safely and without help.
This stroller also boasts screens that protect against the sun’s UV rays. This is a huge benefit, as even though cats are covered in fur, they can still develop skin cancer. Cats that have light fur and/or pink noses and foot pads are particularly susceptible to sun damage. Protecting your cat from UV damage is just one piece of the puzzle to allow your cat to live a long and healthy life.
The Posh Pet Stroller is also lightweight, weighing only 12 pounds. It also is easy to assemble, arriving almost completely assembled with just a few small parts that snap together. It also folds together easily for travel and storage, with many other reviewers stating that they just keep this stroller in the trunk of their car since they are using it so frequently.
Finally, the Posh Pet Stroller is fairly roomy, with most cats able to sit up in this stroller comfortably without having to crouch or lay down for the entirety of the walk. This means that they can have a full view of the scenery!
For all of the great features of this stroller, there are definitely some drawbacks that should be considered before purchasing this stroller.
There are many different designs of strollers on the market, but with this particular two front wheel, two back wheel design, this stroller does not steer as well as other stroller designs. This could make it difficult to take this stroller on narrow paths or in heavily crowded areas.
Additionally, the material that the wheels are made out of does not allow for a very smooth ride. Many report lots of bumping and shaking during walks or hikes, even if you are on level surface.
The Posh Pet Stroller also does not come with much built-in padding or blankets at the bottom, which can make the ride even more bumpy for your cat. It is necessary to add additional padding, which takes away precious room to stretch out or can hinder your cat from sitting up if they are particularly tall.
There are also some concerns about the durability of both the fabric and the zippers on this carriage. Many have found that the zipper does not stand up to repeated use and that a determined cat, particularly one that has sharp claws and does not want to be in the stroller, is able to escape from this stroller. Unlike many other strollers on the market for cats, this particular stroller does not feature a seatbelt or leash to keep them secure.
Finally, the last drawback of this particular stroller surrounds the weight limitations as advised by the manufacturer. The weight limit is listed at 25 pounds, but a decent number of users have found that cats that are anywhere close to this weight limit are simply not supported, and many of the durability concerns are exacerbated by the weight.
On top of this, some suggest the true best weight limit is more like 10 to 15 pounds. This severely restricts what cats can safely ride in this stroller, as it is not uncommon to find cats that weigh above 15 pounds and not uncommon to meet cats that weigh over 20 pounds.
Unlike almost any other stroller on the market today, the Posh Pet Stroller does not feature any below the carriage. For some, this is a necessary feature, while others find that it simply adds more weight and unnecessary height to the stroller.
If you are looking for a simple, lightweight, and easy to transport option for a stroller for cats, then this stroller may be a fantastic option for you. There are some drawbacks to this stroller, but all in all, the simplistic Posh Pet Stroller is a very valid option for those who are looking for a basic stroller for their feline friends.
