First off, this thing is BIG! So keep that in mind when picking out a spot for it. It measures roughly 5 feet across and because of the multiple openings doesn't fit into a corner well without blocking one of the entrances. But if you do have the extra room your cats will really enjoy this. It comes shipped collapsed and much smaller than you would expect. There are small loops on the top and bottom of each end with a small plastic button that fits through them to keep things all neat and tidy. Once you undo the buttons it opens up, having a wire core shaped like a spring. The leopard print fabric is on the outside with a brown interior that makes a crunching sound when kitty walks on it. There is an opening right in the middle for them to peek out of, which is fun to watch when multiple cats are playing hide and seek. There are also little hanging toys on the opening of each end. My cats just ignore them, yours may be different.
The vinyl material of this tunnel toy would also be ideal if your kitty throws up, has an accident, hairball, whatever. Easy clean up if necessary.It feels durable, our 4 cats have been running through it for 2 weeks now and there is no signs of wear and tear yet. And best of all, it will collapse and store easily if you need to pack it up for any reason. Overall it is a great toy for your active or even not so active cat as it gives them a place to hide when they need a time out or even just for napping.
