Introduction: Cat Hammock

Picture of Cat Hammock

My kitten needed a place to hang out - somewhere up high - that wasn't on my furniture! I looked through a bunch of homemade cat hammocks tutorials and combined bits and pieces of them to make my own.

I'm sorry I didn't think to take pictures of it as I was making it!

What you will need:
1 Wire Hanger
1 Pillow Case
 String
 Needle And Thread
 Hole Punch

1. Take the wire hanger and cut it in half - each half should be about the same size as the short end of the pillow case

2. Sew up the ends of the pillow case - on the closed end you just have to do it once - trap the wire in the end of the pillow - on the open end sew it shut and then sew it again to trap the wire there

|-[-|---------|-]-|
|-[-|---------|-]-|

Not sure if this little picture makes sense - the straight lines are where you would sew and the brackets ( [ & ] ) represent the hanger...the ---- just represent space in the pillow case

3. Then punch holes in each corner and put the string through it! (I used a couple pairs of shoelaces I had laying around)
It's Finished! Just needs to be hung up!

KeKe says "Mew to You" or Thank you in cat talk as this design you have created for your feline friend seems to be the one which will fit KeKe best as he is a long muscly cat formerly feral who is learning all kinds of things in a warm safe place. He is very smart too. We will try it, thank you again and Happy Holidays.
