Petmate Jackson Galaxy Base Camp Hub with Solid Tunnel Review

Jackson Galaxy Base Camp Product Review

The Petmate Jackson Galaxy Base Camp Hub with Solid Tunnel was an immediate hit, as you might have seen in our arrival video posted weeks ago (and also posted below).  It is a great base camp and expandable cat tunnel combo that is ideal for play – kitties want to go inside and check it out.  At least the 4 kitties I used with it did – Caymus (10-year old Ragdoll), Murphy (10-year old Ragdoll), Charlie (5-year old Ragdoll) and Trigg (5-year old Ragdoll) did.

The Petmate Jackson Galaxy Base Camp Hub with Solid Tunnel is as exactly as it sounds – a purple base camp with a green tunnel that attaches via a zipper.  There are three different “holes” that you can attached the tunnel to.  And there is also a zipper door located on the back.  So this also makes for a great gift for a kid that loves cats because there are a lot of different fort-like combinations possible.

It fully collapses for easy storage, making it ideal for travel or play in small spaces – so that it can easily be packed up and put away. It comes with a little bag…and is packaged in this bag when you first purchase it.  This is the storage bag that you use later on – you’ll see this in the arrival video below as well as our final review video below.

This expandable cat tunnel measures 20 x 11.5 x 12 inches and weighs just 2.7 pounds.

You can buy it on Amazon.

We asked Petmate to make a $200 product equivalent donation to the non-for-profit organization, Kitty City NM, in exchange for the review of their cardboard cat scratchers. We received the Petmate Jackson Galaxy Base Camp Hub with Solid Tunnel for review from the manufacturer. Receiving the free product and Petmate’s donation to Kitty City NM did not influence this post.

  1. I love this!

    Prossimo LOVES running through the middle of his Karma Scratch Kube but one thing that he does that cracks me up is he tries to reverse direction in the middle of it. For a 16# cat the sight is hilarious!! Ladies, have you ever tried on a foundation garment (i.e. Spanx or something similar) at a store but then been totally unable to get it off?!

    I happened upon a collapsible kid play tunnel in the clearance section of Ikea and Prossimo can’t stay out of it. Between that $7 investment and a recent Amazon box that has become an ideal sleep spot, I’m rethinking all of the beautiful beds, posts, toys and tower that I purchased for this crazy feline!

    I really like the kid play tunnel because it’s large enough for him to turn around in, is quite long at 57″ and it gives him a lovely spot to launch a surprise attack from. Well, that last part isn’t my actual favorite part and Yoda has learned to give either end wide berth!

    I’m liking the Jackson Galaxy one for the “hub” part as well as the ability to add on making it more interesting.

    Hmmm… as the certified non-cat person I sure sound like a crazy cat lady don’t you think?!
