Cat Tunnels are designed to ensure safe access from your house to an outdoor cat enclosure area. Cat Tunnels are ideal for customers whose stand independently from their house, where access is restricted or where garden plots are isolated from the house. They are used by domestic, commercial and charitable organisations who care for cats and require safe outdoor access. Cat tunnels offer an enhanced territorial space for cats so that they can enjoy the benefits of outdoors.
Many cats that live exclusively indoors find themselves bored and lacking the mental stimulation that can deter unwanted behaviors such as urinating in the house, using the furniture as scratching posts, and fighting with other pets in the home. Access to the outdoors can help alleviate many of these issues as it allows them to express themselves more naturally outside of the home so that they can rest easier indoors.
