Your pet cat can never be an astronaut or get as lucky as Laika. However, the closest you can take your paws to be an astronaut is by purchasing a special backpack created by a company called U-Pet, based in New York. It has proper ventilation for an average pet carrier and the bubble window which looks prominent appears similar to that of a cosmonaut’s helmet. The cat gets to see everything outside and also makes it feel as if it is in a space suit. There are two variants available in catpacks. One is soft, rectangular in shape and the other one is oval and has a shiny plastic coating. However, you would be delighted to know that both are equally safe and are washable. They come in a variety of colors and come with mesh panels too. If you are planning to take your cat around, this would be your best bet.
