The Farm cats live the privileged life of the spoiled cats that they are. They have a variety of places to lounge and sleep but apparently I was failing them. They did not have a luxury cat hammock. How did I manage to let them go forth without this? I am a bad human.
I am very happy to let you know that this travesty has been rectified! Thanks to the obviously much nicer humans at Pet Magisin the Farm cats now have a luxury cat hammock. The company sent one to them at no cost so they could sleep and swing on a quality piece of cat furniture.
If you are like me and your cat does not have one of these, you should slap your wrist and get on the stick. This hammock is very different from any of the other cat beds here in the yurt. For one thing, it swings. This was problematic at first until I got it tied tightly enough – but I’m getting ahead of myself.
Putting Together the Luxury Cat Hammock
I will begin by noting I am beyond terrible at doing anything that involved putting A into B. Otherwise known as putting things together. But I decided to try and do this myself so I could fully report on how easy/not easy it was to do.
Needless to note, I had help.
Further needless to note, the help was no help.
It never is, but it is ever present.
I opened the box and inventoried the pieces. Everything was there and there was even an extra screw. I think you can even see from the photo that the wood is really nice quality.
I even read the direction but true to form, they didn’t help me much. I suck at putting things together. Just ask the hubby. He’ll tell you. But I will note that I did get it together up until the very last piece. I could not get the second foot on to save my life. I had to admit defeat and ask the hubby to figure it out.
I screwed up. No surprise here. Please learn from my stupidity.
When you are putting together the main frame, watch how you place the curved pieces. I put one backwards and it placed the hole for the screw for the foot in the wrong place so things didn’t line up correctly.
As I said, I cannot build things.
The hubby sorted it out in like two blinks and soon the cats were checking it out.
Farm Cat Hammock Test
Harry tried it.
Stinky tried it.
Pumpkin tried it.
But truth be told, none of them really liked it. It sat and it sat and none of them used it for two weeks. So we will be donating it to AniMeals the next time we go down to Missoula. There is just not enough floor space around here for something they are not going to use..
It is very nicely made, the Farm cats just don’t like it. It could be they just have so many choices they don’t want another one. Whatever the reason I know that AniMeals will be very happy to get a quality, well made, luxury cat hammock for all of the kitties in the shelter.
