It is a flexible tunnel, which makes noise when the cat is playing in it. Your cat will both be able to walk through the tunnel and have fun with the noise.
Does your cat sit in the kitchen all day and meow because he wants food? It may also be that he is bored. To occupy your cat, and instead of constantly feeding him, we offer the labyrinth with kibble. It is a multi-level tower. At the top are croquettes or treats. Let the adventure begin!

He will no longer always need you to take care of the hours.
