How to Make a Hammock for Your Cat
Cats Love a Comfy Hammock As Much As You Do!
Pillowcases Are Just Right!
If you have some old pillowcases that you no longer use, they are the perfect fit for your kitty cat's hammock. You will also need an animal cage (actually I prefer one that's for a large dog, so you could put a few hammocks in it if you wanted to), four grommets for each hammock (round things that resemble wedding bands), four keyrings for each, some batting and one lazy cat.
The first thing you have to do is use some grommet pliers and attach a grommet at each of the four corners of the pillowcase. Then cut some batting just slightly smaller than your pillowcase so it will slip inside easily. Sew up the open end and make some hand stitches across the pillow case just to keep the batting in place. If you are lucky enough to already be skilled in this kind of craft, you can make some fancy designs all in the name of holding that batting.
Next, attach a keyring to the grommets on the corners and hang up in the wire cage so that the pillowcase droops just a bit, which will be nice and comfortable for your favorite feline.
Remember, it doesn't have to be purrr-fect, just comfy.
