Best Cat Hammocks

Cats love nothing more than sleeping. In fact, they can sleep for an average of 15 hours a day but have been known to get in up to 20 hours of nap time on some days. Cats are also really big on comfort and will go to any lengths to get that perfect nap spot.

As a purrent, you can pamper your little feline by getting them the ultimate place to nap, a cat hammock. Let us take a look at some of your options on the market.

Our top pick is a cat hammock and frame unit that is designed to offer flexibility for you as the homeowner in terms of setup location. The cat hammock itself has a plush finishing with breathable material for the cat’s comfort.

On the other hand, the frame is made from high quality and durable wood and finished with non-toxic finishing products all for the safety and comfort of your cat.

26. FUKUMARU Wall Mounted Cat Hammock

Cat safety is often a major concern especially with wall mounted cat hammocks as there is always the risk of the cat falling off as they turn in their sleep. This is something you do not have to worry about with this cat hammock.

It features a front bar that offers protection which the cat will also definitely enjoy using as a pillow or scratching edge to headbutt or bite on.

25. NOYAL Cat Hammock Bed

The Noyal is an all-weather hammock with 2 usable sides. One features a chunky cotton lining. This is ideal for keeping the cat warm during cold weather. The other side is a velvet layer which in addition to being super soft is very breathable and light and therefore perfect for hot weather.

24. FakeFace Heavy-Duty Reversible Pet Cat Travel Hammock

This cat hammock is designed for setup within cat crates. It features a strong and durable set of nylon straps and metal clips to secure to the crate grates. However, it can also be set up on other supportive surfaces including under chairs, on to trees, or even DIY hammock patches.

It also has a reversible design allowing comfortable use by the cat all year round.

23. XinGiao Cat Cage Hammock

One of the biggest issues with cat hammocks is finding space for them in the house. With this option, you can set it up under furniture including chairs and stools. It comes with special anti-slip looks that keep the straps from sliding down the furniture leg.

This cat hammock also stands out as it is made from heavy duty canvas. This is durable which is important as the cat will inevitably scratch or bite playfully at it.

22. Delifur 2 Level Cat Hammock

Cats are way more affectionate than we give them credit for and the best way to tell is by watching how they treat their fellow feline friends. If you have two cats, the clingy little fur balls will most likely prefer to squeeze into one hammock than use the two separate ones you get them.

This is what makes this two level hammock awesome as they get to hang out close to each other while still enjoying their individual space.

21. NACOCO Cat Hammock

If you have a large cat, this cat hammock would definitely be worth looking into. It measures 20.9 inches by 14.6 inches and can support cats as heavy as 16 pounds.

In addition to all the space, your big kitty will enjoy unmatched comfort with the soft, warm, and breathable faux wool material. This is ideal for cold weather but is still comfortable for use during hotter months in the year.

20. MICHLEY Leisure Time Pet Cat Cage Hammock

A lot of hammocks do not last very long. This is because their construction is not ideal for dealing with the often very destructive kitties. This is not the case with the Michley hammock. Whether your cat chews at or scratches it, you are pretty much guaranteed resilience and longevity.

This is due to both use of high quality materials and the reinforced stitching along the edges.

19. Winnsty Cat Hammock Mesh

This cat hammock is perfect for outdoor use as well as use during hot months. This is because the entire unit is made out of mesh material. This allows breathability with air flow to keep the cat cool as they lounge whether indoors or outdoors.

Despite this design, it is a very durable hammock due to the high quality materials used and the excellent construction. You will have it around for a very long time.

18. PERSUPER Cat Hammock

This is another fantastic alternative for very big cats. It measures 22 inches by 18 inches. It can also handle a weight of up to 20 pounds which covers almost all domestic cat breeds including the furry giants.

The material also has a lot to offer you as the cat owner as it is durable and machine washable therefore very easy to maintain

13. Pelay Cat Hanging Ferret Hammock

At 21 inches by 14 inches, this cat hammock can comfortably support a large cat of 16 pounds and under or even two small or medium ones. It all depends on how much tension you apply when setting it up whether it is in a cage or under a chair.

However, when using it with two cats at the same time it is important to ensure that they do not exceed the weight limit to avoid damaging the clasps.

11. LIFIS Macrame Cat Hammock Bed With Decorative Macrame Wall

More often than not, we want to keep the cat hammocks hidden out of site as they do not always blend in with the home’s aesthetic. However, if you want an aesthetic masterpiece then this is the cat hammock to go with.

Why Do Cats Like Hammocks? Cats absolutely love cat hammocks. They combine comfort, warmth, and elevation which are 3 of any cat’s favorite things. The fact that they get to sink in and spread themselves over the yielding surface also makes them like hammocks even more. You just have to choose the right size and a comfortable material and they will be happy.

How Do You Put A Cat In A Hammock? You don’t really put a cat in a hammock. Cat’s don’t really like to be told what to do and will probably reject the cat hammock if they feel forced into it. Instead, just set it up within the kitty’s view and it will get their attention. When they are ready, they will give it a try and inevitably fall in love.

Can A Cat Hammock Be Used Outside Of A Cage As Well? Cat hammocks can be used outside of cages. In fact, they can be used anywhere from outdoor spaces to windowsills depending on the cat hammock’s specific design. In fact, it is best to use the cat hammock in a free open space that the cat can very easily get on and off from.
