Your tunnels have proved to be very effective. Thanks. Very frustrated cats.
Can u pls indicate what you use as wood preservative, presuming that it has been selected so as to cause no harm to hedgehogs. One of our two tunnels is getting a bit faded.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Dave, We use a water based wood treatment which is specially designed to be good to wildlife, if you purchase a water based fence preservative, most modern ones are environmentally friendly now and paint the outside of the tunnel that should be fine

I have the hedgehog house you show above and as i need somewhere safe as there is a fox that keeps eating food if i now buy the tunnel as above would this be the right thing to do as you say above it stops the cats getting to the food.Ihave tried making one of the make shift feeding stations out of plastic box but it doesnt get eaten,,,,,,,,,,,,,,kind regards Jenny Stanley

The hedgehog tunnel is smaller both height and width making it more difficult for cats to gain entry, as a fox is usually much bigger than a cat this should stop any getting into your house, we do advise a feeding station is better than a house thought for feeding

I am interested in your Cat Resistant Hedgehog Tunnel to fit onto the Hedgehog Eco House I recently purchased.
Would you please inform me what the actual external height and depth dimensions are for this product, as the stated 11cm appears to be either the internal sizes or incorrect.
( Chris Horton, 26/10/2017 )
The internal size is 110mm wide by 120mm high, so the physically the entrance actual size is 11cm wide and 12cm high
We can make it smaller if you wish, but you have to be careful the hedgehog does not get stuck in the tunnel as they struggle to walk backwards due to their spines
I would also like you to have a look at this article I wrote on how to keep cats out of your hedgehog house

We have made holes in our fence for hedgehogs. They are the size of a CD disc. Unfortunately foxes come through which we would like to stop. Would this tunnel placed by the hole stop the foxes?
( Mark, 21/10/2017 )
It would stop adult foxes but might not deter the younger, smaller foxes, the kit includes fixings which you would need to use to secure to your fence, hope this helps

Would a cat be able to put its paw in and pull the food bowl out?
( Anna, 20/02/2017 )
The tunnel is really designed as an entrance tunnel, the feeding bowl would be further into the house/feeder making it unlikely for any cat to get near the food

sorry to be a pain, but is there enough width to put a standard cat bowl down and still have still have space for the hedgehog to get past it ?
( sarah gillen, 21/11/2016 )
This is really to keep cats out of a house or feeder, the width is only enough for a hedgehog to get past, its only 100mm wide and 100mm tall

The British Hedgehog Preservtion Society recommend a minimum size of 13 cms. Its the turns that keep the cat out, but at this size, most of my hogs wont fit. Can you make a bigger one please?
( amanda, 04/11/2016 )
Twists and turns dont always work if the cat is small and there is food in the house or feeder, in our experience 13cm lets in cats and small foxes heads etc, still we always try to work with everyone, some customers ask for 11cm entrances, others 15cm, if you email me firstname.lastname@example.org with the size you require we will be happy to make you a larger one
