A couple set up a chute from their house to a tent in the front garden to enable their cats to get some time outside during lockdown.
The tunnel – fastened with duct tape – enables the cats, Archie and Toonie, to get to their outdoor play area, to enjoy fresh air and feel grass beneath their paws while keeping them safe, reported the Metro.
Owner Anabel Maler, of Iowa City in the US, said: “I came up with the idea, but my husband put it all up for me…They absolutely love it. They chase each other in and out of the tent all day and they lie in there sunbathing…
As well as bringing the cats a lot of joy, the kitty chute has attracted attention from the couple’s neighbours, who keep stopping to take photos of the cats in their tent.
