New Tunnel is a Cheap Substitute

New Tunnel is a Cheap Substitute

I got a new tunnel for Christmas. TW said the old one was so beaten up, it was dangerous. She was afraid I'd get one of the metal pieces through my paw. I love my Tunnel of Pain and Suffering. I don't want no replacement tunnel.

Don't ax me how it got so beat up and bent out of shape. I bet she stepped on it or something.

This is the new Tunnel of Pain and Suffering. It's a Jackson Galaxy model. I'll tell you from the get-go, the mesh throws me off. I can see what TW is doing and she can see when I'm about to pounce. That's never good when she knows my intentions. It's not the same when she counts to three and shoots the rocket or throws a ball. I can see everything. I refuse to chase it.

She claims this is the same size as the former tunnel altho I know she bought it cos it was on sale. Cheapskates! Don't even get me started on my new "economy" litter box; that's for another day. The Cat deserves better than cheap, inexpensive pieces of mesh and plastic. Don't you hate it when your peep decides something of your's needs to be replaced?

  6. Erm ... when Bear gives me looks like those, I sleep with one eye open! I can't believe TW would replace your tunnel with a see through model! Doesn't that defeat the entire purpose?!?!? On the plus side, maybe she just wants to see more of your stunningness? I mean, I could admire your beauty all day, CK!

  7. I know...it's terrible! Mom tried to replace my tunnel with this piece of cwappy plastic tunnel that was so short that I walk in one side and am right out after the second step. C'mon folks, I need a challenge. I can find my way out of a longer tunnel. Geez!

  8. With any luck you will get used to that new tunnel, C.K. Maybe you could ask TW to throw a sheet or blanket over it so you don't have to see what each other is doing. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  10. Oh, CK, why do humans have to do such things? Do they enjoy torturing innocent kitties? Well, I hope you can find some joy in that tunnel. It is a very pretty blue, at least!

  12. We are shocked CK, deeply shocked at the abuse you are enduring even as we speak.

    We need to start a GoFindMe for your tunnel repairs it could cost millions......

  13. Sorry you don't like da new tunnel CK. We don't have one, so we can't say what's better or worse. Mommy typically doesn't do anythin' 'bout replacin' our toys. She says she can't really afford it. So ifin somethin' gets really beat up, we just live without it. No biggy, mommy says we have purrlenty and we're blest. there are lots of kitties in da world with far less. Hope TW gives in and gets you a better tunnel. Ya' know, dat Galaxy guy claims to be a cat man, but we think really he's on da humans side. MOL Big hugs

    Luv ya'

  14. I know just what you mean! Peeps are always replacin' stuff belonging to us, that we don't want replaced. MOUSES!

  15. TW definitely stepped on it. Nothing we buy nowadays is built to last :(

  16. Manna and Dexter aren't fans of having their things replaced either. Cinco was particularly upset when I replaced anything. It is strange that the tunnel would be transparent. The fun of a tunnel is being able to hide! You should tell TW to put a blanket over the tunnel.

  17. That mesh is different, I liked the cat print on the other one.

  18. CK, we have some Yeowww toys we REFUSE to let the Mom get rid of! We certainly don't like replacements, either. We hope the new tunnel will grow on you over time.

  19. CK, one of the fun things about a tunnel is that you can hide in it and then jump out at some unsuspecting human walking by. You can't do that with that mesh one.

  20. I feel your pain CK. M took my tunnell and dismantled it and stuck it in a closet somewhere. That was when we moved in here. She said there wasn't room for it to be out! Pfffft~! If they'd get rid of a chair or that TV thing, there would be plenty of room. Humans!!!!!!

  21. I'm sorry, maybe your mommy can put a sheet over it (maybe, I know it's not the same). Hiding in the tunnel is the fun part. Gus doesn't have his own, but he happily hijacks the kid's when they pull theirs out. It's nice and not see through so he can scare mommy in the middle of the night when I get up and say "What is that sound?"

  22. I'm with you......they never ASK - they just do what they wanna do without our input. Dictatorship? I think so!

  23. CK why is it that never ask our opinion??

  24. A mesh tunnel doesn't make much sense to me. Isn't the point of a tunnel that you can't easily see through it? You mom could try to fix it by taking a bed top sheet or some nice fabric and making a tunnel cover. Mom did that for our tunnels - it has a kitty print on a black background. And if your mom's a no-sew person, fabric glue would work to "hem" everything to the right size.
