Pet strollers are available with one of two types of wheels: air-filled or EVA foam. E.V.A. stands for ethylene vinyl acetate and is simply a sturdy, molded plastic. Let’s take a closer look at the two types of dog stroller wheels.
Advantages of EVA tires include:
Lighter weight than air-filled tires, which is beneficial when folding and carrying the stroller and when stopping a moving stroller
They don’t flatten
You don’t need to inflate them or replace them
Reasons to choose air-filled tires:
Traction on uneven road is better with air-filled tires compared to EVA
The stroller is easier to maneuver off-road with air-filled tires
Air-filled tires provide a smoother ride than EVA
In some strollers, having heavier tires makes the stroller sturdier
Some people prefer the smoother ride for their pet and better traction when off-road, with the air-filled tires, while others like the idea of not needing to maintain the tires and managing a lighter weight stroller. There isn’t much maintenance with the air-filled wheels, however, and some strollers include a portable pump.
Examples of air-filled tires on pet strollers are the Pet Gear Jogger, PetZip Happy Trailer, the Solvit Houndabout, and DoggyRide trailers.
Examples of EVA foam tires on pet strollers are Pet Gear AT3, PetZip 1st Class Jogger, PetZip Monogram and the KittyWalk Original SUV.
In an effort to boost sales, Kittywalk has reduced prices on several of their pet strollers. Kittywalk Systems is known for their high-quality materials and well-constructed pet products. My favorite is the Original SUV stroller! All of the Kittywalk strollers have a removable carrier and a lightweight folding frame. The wheels are sturdy and durable. These strollers have a unique metal and leather clasp system for closing the carrier. The SUV models of the strollers are larger in size and will carry more weight than the standard models.

Most cats are love to check out what you are eating. It seems they will eat almost anything in addition to their cat food. It is fun to give them a “special treat.” as it makes us feel happy that they might be happy. However, cats really only need the nourishment that comes from cat food. It is alright to give them human food treats, as long as it’s in moderation.
Plain Yoghurt – It is not a good idea to give your cat flavored yoghurt because they are unable to digest the fructose sugar that is usually an ingredient.
Cheese – Avoid soft cheeses, like Brie, but cats do love a good cheddar or even cottage cheese.
Eggs – It’s not a good idea to give your cat a raw egg, but scrambled or hard-boiled is a tasty treat.
We all know that cats love fish, and canned tuna is a delicacy for them, but be careful not to give them too much fish. Fish is deficient in Vitamin E and cats could develop a condition called “yellow fat disease” if they eat too much human- food fish.
KittyWalk strollers are truly well-designed and superbly constructed pet strollers. KittyWalk strollers have a fabulous 360 degree view through a soft mesh fabric. Each pet stroller has a detachable carrier that allows you to take your cat into the car and into the vet or other desired location.
Four of the KittyWalk strollers have a regular version and an SUV option that is 30% larger. One difference between the strollers is the fabric used on the privacy compartment. Many cats who ride in strollers enjoy the option to take a break from the action to duck out of sight.
All the KittyWalk strollers have independently turning front wheels. The wheels on the SUV strollers are larger and better able to navigate over uneven terrain.
All of the strollers have a special latch system on the door openings. This company does not use zippers, but instead a metal and leather clasp.
