Cat Resistant Hedgehog Tunnel


Cats tend to like to get through any holes you've made for hedgehogs. This includes houses, boxes, feeders, or even a hole in the fence.  This Cat resistant Hedgehog Tunnel is designed to be added to anywhere that a cat or other small animal (such as fox) may try and get through. Ideally, this should be added to hedgehog runways/holes on fences etc,  or attached to Hedgehog Houses. It's a simple device, which help prevent larger animals from entering, but allows Hedgehogs of all sizes to pass through. IT also comes with a fixing kit.

  • New design 
  • 11cm wide x 12cm high and 35cm (internal dimensions)
  • Makes it harder for cats to gain entrance to your hedgehog feeder
  • Comes with a fixing kit (screws, brackets)  for securing to fence or hedgehog house

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.

Thank you

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 ( admin, 21/10/2017 )
Hi
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 ( admin, 20/02/2017 )
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 ( admin, 21/11/2016 )
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 riversidewoodcraft@gmail.com with the size you require we will be happy to make you a larger one ( admin, 04/11/2016 )
