Cat Flap Tunnels FAQs
A cat flap tunnel is a plastic tube designed specifically for our range of cat door flaps. They allow your cat to pass through thick walls or other obstacles where a traditional cat flap wouldn’t work.
Cat tunnels are designed for individual cat flaps and will fit perfectly if you buy the right one.
Our cat flap tunnels are designed to fit seamlessly together so there is no limit to how long a tunnel can be. We would exercise caution when building your tunnel as some cats may not like it too long!
The product description will tell you which cat flap tunnel to buy. Check the product description for each tunnel and it will outline exactly what cat door flap it is designed to fit.
If you’re still unsure, contact one of our team and we’ll be happy to help.
Cat flap tunnels are easy to fit and can be installed by a competent DIYer in most situations. Measure the area where you want the cat flap and tunnel to go. Measure again and mark it out. Cut the hole to size and slide the tunnel inside. Fix each side of the cat door flap at either end and you’re done!
Depending on the installation, you may need to use filler for any gaps in walls or doors left by cutting. This will be covered by the cat door flap so you won’t see it.
We find bribery and corruption works when teaching a cat to use a cat flap or tunnel. Leave the cat indoors and go outside. Stand where they can see and hear you through the cat tunnel and use their favourite treat to tempt them out or call them.
Be patient as the cat may be hesitant to use the tunnel at first. If that doesn’t work, use higher status treats until they come through. Then lavish them with praise, affection and more treats.
You may have to repeat this a few times until they truly get it, so be prepared!
