Cat Hammocks

Hey cat fans!

Ever since I bought my cat a hammock she loves nothing more than to lounge on the thing all day! The type I bought was a window hammock that attaches to my window sill. We all know that cats love to be in high places. This hammock gives her the opportunity to have a snooze in mid air and she is safe in the knowlede that she isn't going to be attacked by my other two males that prowl around the house. This is a bit of a problem in my home. Whether it is just the two males ganging up on the female or it could be they just don't get on. I am always looking for solutions to deal with this.

Before I bought the hammock I had a extra large cat bed thinking my three cats would all sleep together peacefully and with out a hitch. To my dismay this did not happen! The two males would wait for Minnie to curl up nice and comfortable and then they would pounce on her and play her up! I know the two males are just playing around but poor minnie would always be the centre of their antics when trying to have a snooze.

Thats where i came across a cat hammock browsing on the net. These come in all shapes and sizes and different colours to fit into the decor theme in your home. Some are attached to poles and the hammock is suspended in the air. Some are attached to window frames and window sills. Ive even seen some attached to walls. I finally setted on the window sill attachment because it came with brackets so I thought it would be safer.

Minnie LOVES this hammock! Probably because it is something new and different but everytime i come home from work there she is lying comfortably in her hammock. It is not all good news though! Everytime i figure out a problem a new one arises.. Sometimes my two other males pull her off and sit in her place. Im pulling my hair out as to why i didnt buy three!

So the conclusion to this story is if you have a muti cat house hold make sure you treat them fairly or suffer the consquences. I have now purchased another two cat hammocks and they are all in different rooms so all three cats have their own space. Less stress for them and less stress for me equals a peacefull and happy household. What more could i want ahhhhhhhhh and relax.

I've never seen a cat hammock. My kitties are always lying near windows in the sunbeams. They ignore catbeds, preferring cardboard boxes...silly cats. I erroneously thought they would like the comfy catbed to a hard cardboard box but they shun them. I'll have to check out these hammocks. Sounds like your kitties enjoy them. Maybe mine would too. Thanks for the info and great article.
