Okay so in a couple of months I have to bring Hunter for his one year vet visit. I need to buy him a crate. When I brought him home and to his other vet visits, I used one of those soft crates that looks like a duffle bag. Well when he got neutered he barely fit in it. That was 8 months ago! I'm looking at some crates from Petco, and I have no idea what size to buy. I like the hard ones not the duffle bags. I think Hunter is still growing. The smallest size is for pets 9 inches tall and under. I think he is taller than that, then the next size up is for pets 11 inches tall and under. Which I think might be okay, but its only for 15 pounds and under. What if he ends up weighing more than that? I hope he won't, but it could be a possibility. Then the 3rd size up, the crate is only 24 inches long! Hunter is at least 15 inches long I think.
I'm not saying Hunter is this ginormous cat. But he is a big boy. Big as in physical stature. Not weight. He weights about 11 pounds or so.
What size/brand do I buy? I want to buy one that lasts a long time, and will be okay if he grows more or puts on more weight.
Totally clueless when it comes to crates. Any help, I'd appreciate it.
