I bought the 22in crate months ago when my lil black panther kitty was a yr old, little did I know that he'd keep growing in size! :) So now I'm buying the 24in crate to give him more room when he misbehaves and playfully harasses his two older sisters (15 & 8 yrs old) and has more room on in his larger crate during his Kitty Jail Time.
Please see tips below:
1. Please keep in mind, this crate is not for traveling or long term kenneling. Its good for overnight kenneling at home if you're training a dog, since dogs are alot stronger than cats and may try to escape from the crate/kennel. It's also good if you're fostering a pet(s).
2. To further secure the door, I suggest you put key clasps on it in the event the crate rolls over or your pet plays with the latch or is trying to do belly rolls. :) One time my lil panther got too playful in his Time Out session, the crate rolled and the latch came undone, it freaked him out.
3. Another important thing to keep in mind, your dog or cat will not escape by the tray sliding out & the crate collapses "IF" you have a "fitted" bed that grasps the edges of the tray. This a must, I got mine from Amazon when I bought the crates, its works wonders and very comfy, as well as easy to throw in the washer.
