A cat tunnel is a great way to encourage your cat to play. They promote exercise and give your cat a dedicated area to not only play but sometimes sleep, hide and rest too.
Cats love exploring dark, enclosed and small spaces which is why many are really attracted to a tunnel, especially if it is indoors. They’re perfect for multi-cat homes where the cats engage in playtime. Many have materials such as paper or foil in the lining too, which makes a noise when stepped on. Cats love this noise and it encourages them in.
But buying a cat tunnel isn’t an easy task. Some are quite short and can be part of a wider play area. Others are long or have various avenues darting off, so they can go through different holes. Some have holes in the centre, so they can pop their head out when halfway along.
You can even connect some models together, to make longer tunnels when required. Some will also connect to a cat tree. A few have toys dangling from their entrances, as well.
While the majority are collapsible for storing when not in use, some are made from wood and other strong materials too. This can make them more stable, but they will take up more space.
We have found some cat tunnels perfect for your feline below. So whether they have bundles of energy or just prefer to have a little nap after they’ve been out on the prowl all night, you can find the ideal one.
