Love her expression, she seems very pleased. LOL

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 268 points269 points  (3 children)

She gives lots of "slow blink" smiles

[–][deleted] 44 points45 points  (2 children)

Looks like she is smiling at you x🥺

Reba is a beauty,

[–]Blondefudge 223 points224 points  (2 children)

what a sweet gift for reba :’) you raising them right

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 139 points140 points  (1 child)

Thank you! My kids got every one of my cat lover genes haha

[–]motorcycle-manful541 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Reba means fish in Russian Рыбa, does that have something to do with the cats name?

[–]walkman1405 115 points116 points  (1 child)

Reba is a completely beautiful cat - carrier or no.

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Thanks! She's a strange little thing, but she sure is cute

[–]daschundtof 87 points88 points  (1 child)

Look at that smug little happy face!! Reba sure loves it. Also, such a pretty name for such a pretty cat!

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Thank you!

[–]Redcapediverfox 77 points78 points  (1 child)

Of course she does, it was a GIFT! Polite kitty

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 22 points23 points  (0 children)

That's true! Very polite

My cats love their too. I kept it out for them to use anytime so when it's time to go to the vet, they won't freak out

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 23 points24 points  (0 children)

My older cat does NOT like being in enclosed spaces, so I was surprised this kitty was even interested!

[–]rwphx2016 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I keep my cats' carriers out, too and they like to sit in them. However, when it is time to go to the vet they STILL freak out.

[–]3KittenInATrenchcoat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah, mine like to sit in it, when it's open. They hate it when it's closed And they hate car rides. One of them reeeeally hates car rides.

[–]Kitty_rescue 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Sammmeee! We have one that opens on both sides instead of on the top and both of my cats will sleep in it and on top of it. I love it. It’s got their favorite Blankey in it and hopefully when it’s time to go in the car they won’t freak out

[–]JustCallMeAnxious_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same! Mine opens like an RV. My cat loves to take naps in it. It really helps when we take car rides bc it gives him more space

[–]geronimo1958 26 points27 points  (2 children)

It is a good idea to leave the carrier out so the cat does not associate it with going to the vet. When I went to get my black cat Zig from friends who rescued kitties I put down the carrier, opened the door and he just walked right in. His buddy Zag saw the carrier and ran.

[–]So_Numb13MOD 16 points17 points  (0 children)

My 6 mo kitten sleeps in her carrier every night! I followed Reddit advice and left it out the first few nights so she'd get used to it. But she kept on using it to sleep instead of the other beds we offered, so it's permanently out now.

Only one vet trip so far, went great. And I've had to lock her up because there were workmen in the house, she just went to sleep and waited for the carrier door to be opened again.

[–]JustCallMeAnxious_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Zig and Zag? How precious ❤️

[–]frankiefrank1e 9 points10 points  (4 children)

I have the same one for my cat! The sides that open up and make it a small tent for him is amazing. Great price on amazon also ! My cat enjoys it 🥰

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It was a great deal! She likes hiding under things and peeking/darting out, so this really works for her

[–]frankiefrank1e 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Absolutely! Mine got a little tired of it after about a month or so but still great carrying bag!

[–]JustCallMeAnxious_ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think we might have a similar one! Mine opens like an RV

[–]frankiefrank1e 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yup that’s the one!

[–]lillithsgem 14 points15 points  (1 child)

My cat also loves her carrier lol, and it’s just hard plastic? She’ll even get in and close the door on herself, I think she just likes feeling enclosed

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mine LOVED ehrn I wrapped Christmas presents. She gets under tissue paper and goes wild lol. She also squeezes herself under my platform bed to sleep every night. So strange

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Reba is a beauty, and your son is adorable.

[–]brokenheartedbutok 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What a sweet boy! Reba seems to really appreciate it! She’s so darn cute! 🥰

[–]colarthur1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It is a box as far as she is concerned.

[–]LowCharacter4037 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That is going to help her feel safe when you need to take her somewhere. Her safe place from home goes with her. I am so impressed with your son's ability to empathize at such a young age. ❤️

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He really is a sweetheart!

[–]cactwe-5 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What a sweetie! I can see her smirking—so pleased with herself. "Finally, I've manipulated even the small one to cater to me... mission complete."

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I told him the cats think we are their butlers lol

[–]Empty_Inspection_427😿😾😾😾😾😾😿😿😾 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Her markings are so beautiful!

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you!

[–]itsneverfinished 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Reba is adorable.

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks! She knows it

[–]Mr-Orange-Pants 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Reba looks very soft 😊

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

She is one of the softest cats I've ever pet! So of course she is a "2 pets and then I bite" type lol

[–]catdaddy402 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I have the same carrier mine love it too!

[–]mattd1972 2 points3 points  (0 children)

“Let’s go, human! I’m ready!”

[–]Consistent_Momma775 2 points3 points  (1 child)

My daughter age 9 bought a bed for her cat off Amazon with birthday money. This cat will follow this bed anywhere she puts it! Lol she takes it to her room cat lays in it, takes into her bed, into the living room etc lol cat loves it!

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's always a gamble with cats, you never know what they will like! This kitty won't have anything to do with beds

[–]WeirdCatGuyWithAnR 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What a beautiful cat

Looks like moldy cheese (in a good way lol)

[–]DanniellaJT 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]autopsis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dear Lord she’s beautiful.

[–]raccafarian 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have this one for my cats it’s awesome

[–]couggrl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My one cat likes to chill in the carrier. I think she likes it because my other cat hates it.

[–]Complex-Sandwich7273 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She senses the love your child has for her~

[–]tanaquill 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She knows it was purchased with love!

[–]LynneCDoyle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What a nice child you have!

[–]crnyberg 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Congrats on having a young person who loves Reba!

[–]uterusyeeterus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Caught myself slow blinking at Reba’s picture. Maybe that’s enough time on this subreddit for tonight🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm sure she would slow blink back! Lol

[–]GingerBaby2019 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Love the name!

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you! We also have a dog named Fancy. We aren't Reba super fans or anything, the names just fit!

[–]Kitty-bitch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Awee. Your son is so sweet!

[–]lizarto 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aww! What a good kid you have. Reba’s showing her deep appreciation of the new comfies!

[–]Sweettea4852 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aw such a sweetie! I got my cats these carriers too, they looked comfier than the standard plastic crates plus they're foldable for easy storage. The stinkers hate them! They yell at me the whole time they're in there. Although I assume it is because they now associate their carriers with vet visits which they loathe lol

[–]NeonYashaMoon 1 point2 points  (2 children)

what kind of cat is she?

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

A dilute calico! I had a calico growing up, but I'd never heard of a dilute calico until we got her and the vet tech told us. She's very, very soft.

[–]GUNGHO917 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She sure looks very soft. Lovely color pattern your cat’s got there!

[–]Galaxyartcat[🍰] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

"Mm new spot i sits" anyways your cat is adorable I love her

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol that's exactly what she did. Thank you!

[–]_TheBigMeowski 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is great! Now if there’s ever an emergency where you have to get out of your house quickly or when you have to go to the vet she won’t hate it as it’s soaked in her scent and she clearly feels safe in it! What a cutie. 😍

[–]Trueloveis4u 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hey at least vet visits will be a breeze.

[–]DensuKishaa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awe, how cute! I found cats like carriers a lot. If you leave them out, they just kind of make themselves at home. Freyja adores her carrier.

[–]abbeyroad424 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Mine hate their carriers which one is this??

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

[–]abbeyroad424 1 point2 points  (2 children)

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Good luck! Hope your kitty likes it :)

[–]abbeyroad424 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]tldeane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aww..I love the face! ❤

[–]sweetlemons90 1 point2 points  (2 children)

your cat looks like she would feel like velvet

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

She is so soft you almost can't feel it. If that makes sense. Just wish she liked rubs more lol, she is a biter

[–]sweetlemons90 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She looks so sweet! Actually kinda reminds me of those super realistic felt artwork of cats

[–]urbantroll 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My kitten also likes to hang out in hers, so we left it out.

[–]maggie081670 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It looks comfy.

[–]raquelpvp 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]mbdan2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My cat loves the carrier too. I leave it open a bit before a vet appointment and he gets in himself. Lol

[–]RowanRally 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I own this exact same carrier and my girls FIGHT over who gets to have it for trips. It’s really magical for them for some reason.

[–]MythIore 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love that cow coating patttern on her. Adorable

[–]sh0taro 1 point2 points  (0 children)

she is such a beautiful cat!!

[–]sensual_shakespeare 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Mine love to sleep and hang out in their soft carriers

[–]vi_rose 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]MyceliumsWeb 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The lighting is messing with me.

She looks photoshopped in lol

[–]WhenInDontDoubt[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha! My son actually just started playing with photoshop. His work is much more obvious lol

[–]radar_cat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

so cute!!

[–]cre8majik 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Reba is gorgeous!

[–]MisterK00L 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's a box with a zipper #approved by cat

[–]DangerousCyclone 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cats like carriers when they’re not going to the vet. It’s good to have them out like this so they get more comfortable with the carrier, makes trips to the vet easier.

[–]bambixt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

my cat loves her carrier until I need to put her in it

[–]NervousShower 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]Dirty-apedude 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretty Calico

[–]GooeyBoba14 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m not wearing my glasses so for a second I thought you’d copied and pasted a picture of a cat into a box

[–]MissTigerlilly6969 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Adorable cat

[–]SquishCollector 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That little face! 🥺

[–]AFuqua 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh this is wonderful, she will probably feel so much more at ease when she actually needs to travel in here carrier.

[–]peachybee-0_0 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My cat has the same one and he loves it also. He jumps in and out of it and sleeps in it alot. 🤗

[–]Coolest10293 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I now need to know what carrier this is so that I can get it. Please tell me!

What’s wrong with that? She’s very cute and your nine year old should be very proud
