Our little dog jumps into her travel carrier as soon as it appears.....Our
cats get into them as soon as we put them out to take other cats to the vet
- always the wrong ones are in there....

I have my first crate trained dog...he loves his crate and, even  
though rarely confined there now, puts himself in it for numerous  
reasons.

Both Copper and Thomas like there travel carriers, putting themselves  
in them when they want peace and quiet...or to tell me that it is time  
to go home etc.  Indoor cats find places under furniture etc when they  
want to feel safe.
