    So last night I bought a cat tunnel - it was £3 in Asda and it has 2 dangly toys at one end. Thought I'd give it a mention as its cheap and means you won't spend about a million quid on zoo plus because of all the other things we "need" ;)

    Probably the best £3 I've ever spent. Mia has been going absolutely bonkers, she's ignored everything else except this tunnel and now she's asleep in it!!
    It was really for the kitten, think ill have to get another!

    Attached is an action shot..

    I was thinking about getting one of these but I was unsure on the size. Willow is 8 months but has grown loads in the 2 months I've had her. I didn't want her to be too big for it in a few weeks time.

    Mia's about the same length of it but she said its brilliant - she was 1 in April and isn't really a petite lady. Lol, I think she will pinch all the kitten toys when he's here!

    Photo - her head is just in line with the front of the tunnel, maybe it will give you an idea of size. She's been diving through it and sliding across the floor.

    *sigh* yet another thing that makes me realise my 2 really aren't normal :rolleyes:

    I got one (used my Zoo+ rewards!) and ..... neither of them went near it :( (bit like the huge cat tree I got them :()

    Ended up putting it in the box for the rescue last time I dropped stuff off to them!

    I look forward to the pictures!

    Haha that tunnels fab! I want to get a tree but I think I'll wait until the kitten is a bit older, he's only 30 days old today (so not even at my house yet!)

    Photo - Mia wore herself out and slept in the tunnel...

    I went and bought this for Willow. She absolutely loves it. I couldn't get a photo though as she was too quick running through it. I think she tired herself out as she's gone upstairs to sleep now.

    Ari loves her tunnel as well! She used the dangling ball to drag the tunnel around. One night we woke up with a strange noise at our bedroom door. It was the tunnel stuck and Ari trying to pull it in! Needless to say that the dangling ball didn't stay attached for too long :rolleyes:

    Loki has the asda one and he loves it, but just a warning if they rough play with it the wire inside pokes through the plastic and its pretty sharp, so keep an eye on them! Easily replaced for the price though...

    Thanks. I've just checked it and the wires are ok for now. However since Willow likes chewing cables the balls will fall off very soon. She has virtually chewed through the elastic already.

    Just a picture to show how much they love it.
    Ari is the Queen of the Tunnel. And Rocco begs her to let him play, too!

    Called in to Asda on the way home last night & picked one up. Bandit's had a smaller tunnel for a while & not used it much, she had a few goes at this one though, here she is eyeing it up

    I was given a bit Y-shaped one, made in crinkly material, and my kittens love it. It has more ambush potential than a single straight tunnel!

    Typical aren't they! I was so proud of Mia's new bed I got her yesterday, as I opened the packaging she was sniffing and purring like mad. She sat in it, instantly got out and sat in her tunnel..... Swine!
    Thought she'd like it, it's one of those pyramid housey type ones. Kitten has one waiting for him too. He best like it!
