Title: Anyone have a cat hammock?
Post by: catandratluver on January 22, 2005, 06:59:09 PM
Does anyone at least know how to make one? I tried, and it didn't work out. I really want one for Orei and Princess, but I don't know how  to make one. I don't see any cat hammocks up for sale, either.

I was thinking the same thing. Our one cat is small enough to fit into a rat hammock and she loves it and since then I have been wanting to get one/make one big enough for the rest of the crew.


Anyone have any ideas?

There's always ebay.  Do a search for cat hammocks, and you'll come up with several different kinds.  My biggest problem with them is they say "up to 20 pounds" and we have a 26 pound cat, so that's a no go...  LOL

I have one of these and my cat absolutely loved it.  Drawback to this one is that it has to be screwed into the window sill and the cover doesn't easily come off for washing.

I see this one on ebay quite a bit and I think that this would be easy to make and easy to take apart to wash the hammock part.  The only question is would the cats like it as much as the window one.

I wonder how hard it would be to make that second one?  Get the pvc pipes at the hardware store and all the various connections/elbows.  Then the hammock part is literally nothing....

*goes off to think about it*

I'll buy a few from you Dearpie! I still have to get hammocks for the ratties (just waiting for some extra cash to fall from the sky).

Ooh, I'd buy them from you, too, Pie.  :)  I suppose I could make one for myself, but I don't have a sewing machine...  LOL

You make the pvc pipe frame and I'll make the hammock!  I'd just need to know how big!  Easy!  :)
