If you're feeling left out of what's trending in the pet world and want to know what the pet parents are currently freaking out over, look no further than TikTok. The app is constantly filled with people talking about what new toy, treat, or device their dogs and cats are loving at the moment, and one recent craze has been over the PLIISLUP Cat Tunnel Bed. Not only is it designed to keep indoor cats entertained and enriched, but it also, incidentally, is providing endless joy for pet parents and online viewers.
So what makes this pet product, and all of the videos that come with it, so great? One key high point here is that it provides bedding that's also enriching to cats, meaning it meets an inherent, natural need that they have. In this case, it allows cats to hide while still remaining comfortable and feeling safe. Cats naturally seek out safe hiding spaces to retreat to when they're feeling overwhelmed, tired, or just in need of a break from their environment.
This tunnel bed is designed with one large entry and exit hole, and the rest is all curved, dark spaces for your feline friend, or friends, to rest in. The entryway provides plenty of ventilation for cats, and the material that it's made of can keep them cozy and warm.
Another great thing about the PLIISLUP Cat Tunnel Bed is the material. This bed is made of soft but sturdy felt material that's both scratch-resistant and wear-resistant and will not pill over time. It's a durable surface that won't collapse when it's assembled, which is easily done by zipping the two bed pieces together, but it will break down for easy storage if you ever need to put it away.
The beds are offered in four colors—dark gray, light gray, pink, and blue, and two sizes. The medium size is suitable for cats up to 7 pounds and measures 20 inches long, 20 inches wide, and 9 inches high. The large size is intended for cats up to 15 pounds and measures 24 inches long, 24 inches wide, and 11 inches high.
Not only does this make a great bed, but it can also be used as a play space for some cats, especially smaller cats and kittens. Because of the tunnel's curved shape, cats can find plenty of hiding spaces when interacting with other cats, or they can use it as sort of a racetrack to run or circle through when they need to burn off some steam. This item does come with three cat toys for your feline friends to enjoy either inside or outside of the tunnel—one toy ball with a bell, and two felt balls.
You can find the PLIISLUP Cat Tunnel Bed on Amazon for$43.99 or $55.99, depending on the size you choose. These beds are washable, but shouldn't be put in a washing machine, so be sure to spot-clean them as needed by hand to keep the felt material intact. The colors they're designed in are soft and a bit muted to go with just about any room decor. Because the beds unzip to come apart, they're also easy to take with you on the road.
