One of my cats sat on top of the cardboard contraption, the other got frisky chasing a toy mouse that I put inside. When the more active one got tired he plopped down on the fleece-lined hammock and watched the apartment do a whole lot of nothing. It’s his new observatory.
It took about 15 minutes to assemble the hammock and I couldn’t get the thing out of the bag fast enough for my guys. It’s assembled like origami, and my kitty was in full-on attack mode as I tried to put the pieces together. I have the battle scars to prove it.
It was a small price to pay for such a fun toy though. It sells for $34.95 and the hammock is easily removed and machine washable. On the downside, the hammock holds a ‘recommended’ 20 pounds of weight – so my 17-pound cat needs to watch the scales or he might be hanging on for dear life.
