Kitty Shack is a cat mat that will double as a tunnel for cats to hide, play, and keep warm in. The mat is available in leopard print with a beige border, and solid brown, also with a beige border. As a mat, it can be used on the couch, the floor, your bed, or virtually any other flat surface that your cat may want to recline on. To convert it into a tunnel, all you'll need to do is zip its two sides together, with the zipper on top. Kitty Shack is machine washable, so it won't be hard for you to clean whenever it gets covered with hair and dander.
When you use Kitty Shack, your cat will be able to get comfortable without shedding all over your furniture. Regardless of whether you're using it as a tunnel or a mat, you can place it beside you wherever you're reclining. Therefore, your cat will be able to sit beside you without covering you or any piece of furniture with fur, since the mat will pick up any fur he or she sheds instead. A cat can also make use of Kitty Shack when he or she wants to hide or chase a toy through a tunnel. Moreover, besides cats, the mat is suitable for small to medium-sized dogs.

How It Works
The plush used to make Kitty Shack provides an electrostatic charge, so the mat can work like a magnet, picking up any hair or dander that your cat happens to shed. After the dander and hair has been caught by the mat, it will remain there, and won't make its way to your furniture, the floor, or your clothing. Besides keeping the area where your cat sits or sleeps clean, Kitty Shack will also keep your cat warm, due to the thermo-reflective layer on its inside. This layer will reflect your cat's body heat, enabling the surface of the mat to become warmer.
Many cats like to sleep beside their owners in bed, or sleep on their owner's bed alone while the owner is out. However, when they do so, the bed often becomes covered in hair, especially if a particular cat likes to roll around. If your cat enjoys sleeping in your bed, a good solution to this issue is simply spreading a Kitty Shack mat across the bed for the cat to lie on. That way, they won't be lying directly on your blankets or pillows.
If you've got a couch that you want to keep clean and scratch-free, but you don't want to ban your cat from it completely, you can spread your Kitty Shack out on the couch. The cat will sleep on the mat, and dig its claws into its material instead of your couch's upholstery.
Hardwood and tile floors can often be cold, but if your cat likes to sleep on the floor, they can use Kitty Shack to keep warm as they do so. They can either stretch out on it when it's spread out, or for extra warmth, you can convert it into a cozy tunnel for your pet. If your cat is in a playful mood, and is too energetic to sleep, you can try tossing a toy through the tunnel so that they can go after it.
- Lightweight and Portable
Kitty Shack doesn't weigh much, so virtually anyone can carry it from room to room. You can even take it on a trip with you, if you're bringing your cat along.
- For Cats of All Sizes
Small to large cats can use Kitty Shack, as even when it's converted into a tunnel, it's still a generous size.
- Can be Used by Dogs
If your dog's size is similar to that of a cat, or is just a bit bigger than that, the dog will likely feel comfortable using Kitty Shack as a tunnel or as a mat.
- Two Designs Available
Kitty Shack comes in two different prints, with a choice between solid brown and leopard spotting. Therefore, you can choose the print that goes best with your decor, or get both. If you have more than one Kitty Shack, you may find it convenient to immediately convert some into tunnels and leave the rest unfolded as mats.
- Machine Washable
Your Kitty Shack won't be difficult to clean, as it's machine washable. Plus, since it will keep your cat from shedding on your bed, it will likely reduce the frequency at which you need to wash your own sheets.
