Car Seat?

Hello!
It is WAY past time for me to get Tillie a car seat. I am looking into a "console" type otherwise I will constantly have to be moving it from the back to the way way back and I just can't do that with my back. lol did I say "back" enough times for you? lol
Anywhooooo... so, what are YOUR car seat recommendations? Does anyone HAVE a console car seat?? I already have a car harness and clip but need a car seat, a cozy, comfy one.

I may be posting this in the wrong section, but if there IS anyone who would like to sell a car seat, pm me! or please post suggestions!
thanks!

Since you already have the harness and seat belt, have you considered maybe just using a donut bed type of thing? That would be very easy to move and would be safe since she's already secured by the harness/seat belt.

I've thought of that, but over the past 6 months she has developed (unexplainable) nervous ness in the car, it's as if she is trying to escape... I thought a high walled car seat or something like that might help her feel more secure?
I've tried a crate and she freaked out even more...

I gave up. For the longest time, I used a crate for Momo, but, I could tell she really hated going bye-bye. Then, I got a car seat, hoping that would help. Nope. Finally, I got a dogbed and a harness and strappy-thing. So, she tolerates going bye-bye, but, now, I have to chase her down to get the harness on. Ume likes the thought of bye-bye (excluding getting his harness put on) but he moans loudly and dramatically the whole time he's in the car with his bed, harness and strappy-thing. Someday I should record his verbalizations.

We have the Outlook I carseat for Murphy. We have had it since right after we brought him home from Jodie. Murphy likes it because he can see out the windows if he wants, or curl up and go to sleep. I like it because it is pretty light and easy to take in and out of the car.

On their website they do have a console lookout. I have not used that one, but it looks nice. Here is the link

The other nice thing is that the cover comes off and is machine washable.

Good luck with your search!

Max has this one which he loves as it is tall enough for him to look out the window. Not sure about something that would work for a console seat but if you find something that works please post a picture.

Wow, you and I are so alike! I JUST ordered this last week: http://www.1800petmeds.com/Solvit++P...prod60510.html. Cey doesn't have a problem with the car but he likes to be able to look out the window, and I thought the seat might also be more comfortable for him. I know you said you wanted a console-type one - is Tillie really that small, or do you have a huge console? Cey used to love sitting on the console (while the car was stopped) but now only his front feet fit haha. Anyway, with the clips and straps and all I figure this one won't be too hard to move around. I'll let you know how it works .

Check out this link. I have the regular Lookout for Beau, which he really likes. This link will show you the console model. Just make sure you get one that is big enough for Tillie -- but not too big for your vehicle.

Beau has recently gotten antsy about riding in the car, too. He alleviates his angst by hanging out the window at the limit of his tether!! I refer to his pose as "wing walking!" I really should get a picture of it.

ha ha Heather! too bad we aren't closer I could try out yours!
Tillie HAS hit 10 lbs, so she isn't near as tiny as she was, but she can and does still curl up on the console, BUT she has started trying to jump in my lap, into the back of the car, etc... trembling all the while. It is a safetly concern at this point and I am just going to have to cut her off from any freedom by harnessing her into a car seat. when ever I can figure out which one to get! ha ha
just measured, my console is 19x8 ...
