This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Even though they’re called cat tunnels, these fun tubes are also great play spaces for domestic pets like rabbits, ferrets, small dogs, and any other furry friends your vet gives the green light to. We know from experience what a painstaking task finding the right model can be given the many offerings out there, so we’ve done the research for you and come up with a wide range of options. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

June 08, 2020:

Cat tunnels are a great addition to any feline caretaker’s toolkit alongside other useful innovations that encourage physical activity such as catnip toys, lasers and more. It’s always funny to find that, regardless of how much cats’ personalities differ in everything from food preferences to favorite toys, there’s a regular set of staples like tunnels and cat fountains that the majority of them seem to agree upon.

Pleasant contemplation of feline proclivities aside, flaws and degradation in cat tunnel designs can cause harm to pets, so be sure to monitor their play and to check the status of their toys, furniture, and so on regularly. Loose threads are particularly worrisome as swallowing them can lead to serious internal injuries, while the wires that brace tunnels can poke cats with their sharp ends if they come loose or are pried off with shenanigans. Additionally, the smaller bits and pieces that comprise tunnels’ added features might break off and become a tempting choking hazard. If you have the time and resources, one of the best things you can do is commit to serious research and consult relevant authorities to ensure you’re making the best choices for pets and implementing your purchases in the safest way possible. There is nothing inherently dangerous about cat tunnels and we wouldn’t steer you away from them at all. We just want to draw your attention to some best practices that may profoundly affect your beloved pets.

While we wanted to give priority to models that come in a greater variety of colors, shapes, and sizes like the Prosper Pet Collapsible and Purrfect Feline 4-Way, many of the best offerings available lack such options. The Kitty City Woven Sisal and Outback Jack Fun Run are great examples of this, because few if any other models on the market deliver the same experience, which, in their cases, takes precedence over mere superficial concerns. Overall, what excites and entertains cats themselves was at the forefront of our thoughts.

Special Honors

Only Natural Pet There's an unfortunate lack of demand for natural and sustainable cat toys that leads to few fun options for pet owners who want to keep their animals entertained without spoiling the Earth for future generations. Although they only offered one short cat tunnel the last time we checked, this company is trying its best to do what's right for the environment while still keeping cats stocked with the playthings that make them happy. Of course, if you want a surefire recyclable option, you could just tape some cardboard boxes end to end and call it a day. Knowing cats, yours will probably be more interested in this than any toy you buy anyhow.

Litter Box In a world of cat toys that is heavily dominated by large corporations that might give the impression that money is the bottom line, this company delivers a much needed breath of fresh air. Describing themselves as, "for pet parents, by pet parents," this manufacturer and purveyor of a broad range of offerings puts thoughtful designs and material transparency before other concerns. As such, you'll be happy to find listings on their website that include thorough descriptions, FAQs, and purchase specifications.
