A Cat Hammock
Your Kitty will Love

If your cat likes to snuggle in your bed sheets or sun in a windowsill, a cat hammock may be an accessory you should consider buying for them.

Hammocks allow your furry feline friend to stretch out and relax in his own personal bed, up off the ground keeping your furniture, bedding and other high up surfaces free of claw marks and hair.

If you have ever enjoyed the comfort of a hammock hung on your porch or between two trees in your yard, the concept is the same.

Similar to the concept of hammocks for humans a hammock for your kitten is one that you can hang inside your home, scaled down to the perfect size for them.

These accessories are usable in a variety of places around your home depending on the type of hammock you purchase. Compare several different models before making a final purchase so that you can set up the hammock where your cat prefers to sleep and relax.

Hanging Hammocks

If you regularly travel with your pet or he enjoys hanging out in small areas such as cat towers or playgrounds, hanging hammocks provide a snugly piece of furniture that is all theirs to enjoy in the comfort of their own enclosure.

A hammock can hang inside your cats crate or inside their playground enclosure as long as two wall surfaces are relatively close together.

Hanging cat hammocks adhere to surfaces using a variety of materials including Velcro, hanging loops or hooks. Remember, the type of hanging hammock you buy will partially be determined by what the walls of this area are made, so be sure to inspect the area first, keeping in mind the favorite haunts of the cat.

Under-Chair Hammocks

Does your cat love to hide away under furniture? If so an under chair cat bed may be just perfect. You'll find there are a few different cover styles to choose from, including sheepskin, white, blue and animal print.

Freestanding Hammocks
