My cats love “levitating”, so I made this cat chair hammock hack for them. It’s super simple and so effective. My cats love it.
The MALINDA cushion is ridiculously cheap and you can actually use any chair with the side bars for resting the feet to hang the cushion. Just a few stitches and you can make a budget friendly cat hammock.
The hardest part was sewing the Velcro on. It takes a few stabs in the fingers, so I’d maybe use a thimble if I ever do this again.
Want to make a hammock for your cat but rather not have it hanging beneath your dining chair? Adapt these ideas instead.
#1 Try a coffee table
This cat hammock is made from the VITTSJÖ Table and a MÄRIT table runner. Fasten the two ends to the frame with staples. Forget about decorating your coffee table with books. Cute kitty is all you need.
Did it wink? Wait. I think it did. Because this double decker cat hammock is spot on. Better yet, it has not one, but two hammocks! This gets my vote for the best use of the BEKVÄM kitchen cart.
#3 Or turn a step stool into a cat perch and hammock
A two-in-one hack your cat will love. It has a seat for when the cat wants to sit up high and look out, probably with disdain at the neighbour’s dog chasing its tail. And a hammock when it needs its human-don’t-bother-me chill time.
