The manufacturers used sturdy grey needle felt to make this cat tunnel to ensure it retains its shape well. Wood buttons connect its multiple felt panels, allowing it to move flexibly. This tunnel is perfect for cats who love to hunt in tight spaces, as they are natural predators wired to stalk and hunt their prey. Narrow spaces provide them with a perfect opportunity to hone their hunting skills and ambush unsuspecting prey. Additionally, cats are territorial animals that prefer to have a safe and secure space to call their own, and a narrow space provides a sense of security and comfort that they need to play and relax. Finally, cats are agile and flexible, and they enjoy a fun and challenging environment that narrow spaces provide, allowing them to showcase their skills.
The cat tunnel can be washed at 40° Celsius.
Why play is important to felines
Toys are important for cats for several reasons. Cats can engage in play, which is a natural and important aspect of their behavior. Play helps to maintain cats’ physical and mental well-being by stimulating their senses, providing exercise, and reducing stress. If cats do not have adequate toys, they can become bored and frustrated, leading to destructive behavior and other health issues. Toys also help to strengthen the bond between cats and their owners. When owners play with their cats, they can interact and build trust, which can help to improve the cats’ overall behavior and quality of life. Owners can also teach their cats new behaviors and tricks, creating a fun and rewarding experience for both the owners and their cats.
Furthermore, toys can provide mental stimulation and enrichment for indoor cats. Indoor cats may not have access to the same level of stimulation and opportunities for exploration as outdoor cats, making it essential to provide them with toys that can keep them mentally engaged and prevent boredom.
Therefore we believe that providing toys for cats is crucial for their physical and mental well-being and for strengthening the bond between owners and their cats. It is essential to provide a variety of toys that cater to the cats’ individual preferences and needs and to engage in play with them regularly to ensure they lead a happy and healthy life.
