The doors are open for them to get used to the plastic crate first. I'm intending to transport them in these when we move to UK next year. 20 hours in their crates!
quite worried about that.
They both have wire crates which are open when we are home. When we are not home, Kobe has to stay in his wire crate, while Natsu is confined to a room with her open crate in it.
Kobe actually likes the tile floor in the kitchen better or his wire crate which has a metal tray. I think he likes the cool feeling better!
