Looking for a new carrier for Rusty he's about 25 pound cat so I need sturdy to hold him. He's out grown his other carrier. If you know of a place I can make payments would be appreciated very much  Grin as it looks like they are rather expensive. Than you Rusty & Anne  Wink

I don't know anywhere you can make payments , but I have always used the 25-30 lb dog carriers for my large cats . Punkin could open the door , so I always used a bungee across it for safety . Here's a picture of 1 , but do a search on other sites for the best price http://www.petco.com/product/123330/Petmate-Vari-Dog-Kennel.aspx?CoreCat=OnSiteSearch.

I see pet carriers at thrift shops a lot for a fraction of the cost of a new one - might be worth stopping at a few to see if you can find a good deal.  If you're a little bit handy, google homemade pet carriers and see if there's something you could use.  I've seen them made out of everything from rubbermaid storage bins to sports bags with shoulder straps and windows sewed into the sides.

Here's what I found in case anyone else needs a cat carrier. I just went out today and picked up a plastic container today to make this about $6 vs $97 that a lot of online sites were wanting for large carrier. also I like that my sheltered  indoor cat won't be able to see out last time I took him to vet he was so stressed. (shot clinic lots of animals)

Be sure to secure the lids with zip ties or some rope etc, otherwise there is the risk of the cats popping the lids open by jumping up against the them.

Maybe others here on the forum have other ideas of how to secure the lids.
