Default Pet stroller

I saw these on e.bay. At first I thought you cannot be serious but
on second thoughts they could be useful especially if you have an old
and infirm pet. What do you think ?

Cheaper at Hammacher Schlemmer-- $129.95

How about a double decker for $250:

Actually, I think they're a great idea for cats that can't handle a harness
and leash. I'd get one myself but I don't have shoes and a bag to match....

I think they're really cool for old, infirm dogs. Also would be neat
for cats--I don't think mine would like it--but given early
"stroller-training" I think cats would love it too. It certainly would
ensure absolute safety for cats who have been socialized and like to
get out with their owners.

Oh fer gawdsake! Are there no mental health programs for the people who
would put a disabled pet in a stroller and showcase their foolishness to the
public? Good grief.

There actually are dogs (and cats) around who enjoy a jaunt outdoors
with their owners. If the dog (or cat) is no longer able to walk
comfortably due to arthritis, hip displasia or whatever, but still
enjoys "walks", there's nothing wrong with using a stroller.

Personally, I think it's disaster waiting to happen if a stray mean dog
decided to eat "Kitty in the stroller".

Don't you think a disabled cat deserves to spend some time outdoors?

Do me a favor, change your name. I don't want people confusing a prick with
an asshole.

A crippled pet ... like you have outlined is a euthanasia candidate. This
isn't your sweet gramma Edith who the neighbors know.
