Accordion Cat Tunnel
The Accordion Cat Tunnel is a play tunnel for your cat that's made of durable, yet bendable cardboard, similar to the cardboard used to make boxes that cats love to play in. It'll fold out to extend up to 10 feet in length, but will fold up small so you can store it under almost any piece of furniture. It's also lightweight, so you'll be able to move it from place to place when your cat gets tired of playing in a particular room or location.

How to Use (Step by Step)
- Fold Out
To get started with this cat tunnel, simply fold it out into a straight line, a circle, a semicircle, or even a squiggly shape. When folded out into a straight line, your tunnel will be up to 10 feet long, and when arranged in a circle, that circle will have a diameter of about two feet.
- Direct Cat Through
Once your tunnel is set up the way you want it, place your cat in front of its opening and encourage them to go inside. You may need to toss a treat or toy in at first to get them to do so. If more than one cat is going to travel through, and your cats aren't tiny, make sure they travel in the same direction to give each enough space.
- Fold up
After your cat or cats are done playing for the time being, simply fold up the cat tunnel like an accordion and store it in your chosen place. Besides fitting under most pieces of furniture, it may even fit in some of your drawers.
- Looks, Smells Like Box
Your cat will likely be attracted to this tunnel because it looks and smells quite like a cardboard box. The shade of brown that it comes in is very close to the shade of most cardboard boxes. Hence, if you've got a fairly adventurous cat, they might feel comfortable going in right away, and even a timid cat might not be too hesitant.
- Scratching Posts at Ends
The plates at each end of the tunnel are made of slightly different material than the rest of the plates, enabling them to double as scratching posts. Your cat may find scratching these plates so satisfying that he or she may completely stop scratching your furniture, if that's something he or she currently does.
Accordion Cat Tunnels are connectable, so you'll be able to connect two or even more than that if you want to give your cat a longer tunnel to explore. You'll be able to connect any two tunnels in just seconds.
- Can Take Almost Anywhere
Since this cat tunnel is lightweight ( and compact when folded up ), you can bring it almost anywhere, such as the cottage or outside in the yard. Therefore, your cat will be unlikely to get bored when spending time someplace other than inside your house.
- Multiple Cats Can Play
As long as the cats aren't huge or likely to fight, as many as several cats can play with the Accordion Cat Tunnel at once. Even tiny dogs might have fun running back and forth through it.
- Stays at Ground Level
This tunnel rests firmly on the ground, so you won't need to worry about your cat possibly injuring themselves by falling from a great height or taking a flying leap. Owners of senior cats who aren't so great at jumping anymore may find this toy's low level especially beneficial.
- Not Ideal for Huge Cats
If you have cats that are fat or just big, they may not like this toy as much as other cats would. They may take up so much space in the tunnel that it feels uncomfortable to be inside, and they may even feel claustrophobic.
- Not Waterproof
Cardboard doesn't withstand water very well, so you won't be able to use this toy outside in the rain without running the risk of it being ruined.
- Cardboard Boxes
A cat will have fun with a cardboard box for a while, but if all they can do is sit in it, they'll eventually get bored. Since you can arrange the Accordion Cat Tunnel in so many different ways, and a cat can get physical exercise by travelling through, they likely will remain entertained by the tunnel for longer.
- Cat Trees
Cat trees are fun, but they're often heavy, making them hard to move, and can take up valuable space in a room. Plus, some owners will worry that a cat will fall off and hurt themselves, which won't be an issue with the ground-level Accordion Cat Tunnel.
- Small Toys
Many people choose to entertain their cats with small toys, such as stuffed mice, stuffed birds, balls, and strings, and cats normally find it fun to play with these. If you're busy, though, you may not have tons of time to sit and dangle a string in front of your cat or toss them a ball. With the Accordion Cat Tunnel, your cat or cats will be able to play independently while you get things done. The only things you'll need to do are set up the tunnel and fold it up after playtime is over.
