Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy
Kitties Blue have lots of places to lounge and snooze—beds, perches, pedestals, cubes, warm kitchen chairs after a human butt has just gotten up. You name it, they’ve tried it and currently use it. Even with this abundance of snoozy places, the crew is usually up for trying out something new. That’s where the Happy Hammock comes into the picture.
I’ve always wanted to get the kitties a hammock that would hang under a chair, thinking it would be one less item on the floor for me to trip over. So when we got the opportunity to try one as part of our partnership with Propel Communications, I was anxious to receive it and set it up.
I first tried it on one of the dining room chairs. As these chairs have a cross bar between the legs, it didn’t work too well. That did not stop Lisbeth, however, from claiming it within seconds.
She doesn’t appear overly comfy, but cats often don’t and still manage to be purrfectly content.
I did decide to move the Happy Hammock to the catio. We have lots of places to nap and lounge there but nothing similar to this. And the chairs there do not have that cross bar. Here’s what happened after I got it set-up.
Facts About the Happy Hammock
The Happy Hammock from SmartyKat® is 23″ x 23″. The lounging side is made from a faux sherpa, which you can see above. It also has an attached feather toy (seen in the top photo), which is supposed to attract your cat and encourage him to use the hammock. (I don’t think Sawyer or Lisbeth even noticed it.) The hammock is surface washable with warm water.
The Happy Hammock attaches to the chair with adjustable velcro straps. It comes with detailed instructions, including photos, for attaching. Regardless I had a bit of difficulty with it the first time. When I moved it to the catio, I had no trouble setting it up.
Kitties Blue recommend the Happy Hammock for its comfort. I recommend it for its sturdy construction and the fact that it doesn’t add any additional clutter to the floor.
The SmartyKat® Happy Hammock is available from a variety of retailers for just $7.39. You cannot afford not to get one or more of these for your furball(s).
Kitties Blue received the SmartyCat® Happy Hammock at no charge as part of our partnership with Propel Communications, a PR and brand engagement partner representing more than 40 pet products and solutions. Throughout the year, we are offered a variety of products to test in exchange for our fair and honest review. The opinions expressed are those of Kitties Blue and myself.
p.s. The laptop is up and running with a new trackpad and all the cat hair vacuumed from the inside. I cannot figure out where the heck that came from!
That Happy Hammock is great, and your kitties seem to like it a lot. I guess you need a taller chair, though. 🙂
Nice review, I didn’t realize those could be hung under chairs. I thought they were for cages like shelters have. XO
That hammick is gonna be the most popular spot in the catio.
Oh boy! That looks like a fab hammock! We can’t wait to get one of our own.
I love these! Manny and CB would like them hanging from the ceiling, I’m sure! And really…you don’t know where the cat hair came from…?!?
We like hammocks so kitties should to and they do. What a great idea.
Have a purrfect day. My best to your peeps. ♥
What a great idea! A hammock that’s NOT in the way or taking up floor space. It also looks quite comfy. Maybe my Mom should get me one of those!
Dat hammock looks pawsome!
This sounds like an awesome bed! Although I doubt it will keep Boodie off the dining table.
MOL, MOL!!! Petcretary almost spat on her own laptop, when she read about how/why your trackpad had conked out…OMC!!!
At least that is better than when petcretary spilled her tea into the keyboard…the whole thing was out…dead…and it needed to be replaced. Oops:(
That hammock looks versatile and cozy. I wonder if Pipo would like it, he is not a sleeper in small spaces kitty, he seems to prefer the open spots. I go in retail pet stores and they sell products from that company, but I have not ever seen that. Hmmm, I shall have to go on the hunt:)
This looks pawsome and I think it would go down very well here. There are several window hammocks but these fill up pretty fast. I can relate to something not working in one place, sometimes it’s just waiting for the better place to arrive – voila instant Hammock success!
