Basically the Silent Spinner and the Comfort wheel are the same dimensions, height and depth wise. It should fit. If I get a spurt of energy this afternoon I will try a comfort wheel in that carrier. No promises though as I had chemo on Friday and am in the exhausted stage right now.

Thanks. I had chemo again on Friday so am tired and kind of yucky feeling but I could be much worse. At least I can function. :lol:

I tried the comfort wheel in the carrier and it fits side to side but the top could not be closed. Now that she is full grown I would not risk leaving the top up. My gang would escape in minutes. Had the flying saucer been clean I would have tried it but it would take up most of the floor space.

A regular bucket wheel will fit with the front bar off the frame and and the wheel lowered will fit and I know that because I tried some of my bucket wheels when I bought the carrier with a wheel fitting in mind. Any chance you could make a bucket wheel?

Im not sure if this would work but just an idea. I checked out the cat carrier you posted and when I did the cm to inch coversion it came out to 13 inches wide and 13.8 inches tall. Since the wheel itself is about 12 inches would it work if you took it off its base and drilled a hole in the back of the carrier to attach it directly to it. That way you could take it out while traveling for safety but you could attach it every night to let him play. I think you could do it if you got two really big washers and a wing nut, if yours is on the base you might beable to use that hardware.
Thats a good idea attaching it to the carrier :)
It wouldn't work. The walls of the carrier are too rounded.

I haven't tried making one. I probably could.

I might put her up for a few trial nights here with the lid open in a closed room. That's how she was last time. While she likes scaling between the sofa & pillow, I haven't actually caught her climbing yet.
While she might not escape at home, who knows what she would do when in a strange place and that is not where you would want her to escape. She'd be better off without a wheel rather than getting lost.
