Hammock Time


Hammocks are a year-round favorite place to hang out at PAWS.


That’s Mindy on the shelf keeping watch over little tabby and white Skye.


Across the hall, Patch is enjoying the hammock while Tramper and Daphne observe from their perch.
My husband Rick designed and built the hammocks for the cats at PAWS. He made a diagram in case any cat loving woodworkers want to make one. We’ve found the best fabric is a medium weight denim that won’t stretch too much.

Of course, Rick made a hammock for our cats too. Here’s Rufus the Red.

Skye, Mindy, Patch, Tramper, Daphne, and so many other beautiful and talented cats are waiting for loving homes at PAWS in Norwalk CT.

  1. The PAWS cats really do love the hammocks! We know they (and all of us) thank COD all the time for you and Rick, Maggie. You two rock!

    BTW, we featured Skye today, too. She’s SO cute!

  2. Those hammicks are so nice and just look how happy the cats are with them. Good stuff. That Skye is such a cute girl. You all have a wonderful Sunday.

  3. We love our hammicks…and ones on the wall would even be more fun! Maybe one day our mom will get creative and make us one or two or three. 🙂

  4. WoW! Great photos of such a great idea & gorgeous cats!
    That was lovely of Rick to draw and share the hammock diagram!
    Now Maggie, all we need is a Rick to build & install it!
    PAWS is very lucky to have such a talented & creative duo!

  6. Oh how beautiful the hammick is and the babies using them!!! No, I don’t have a Cat Girl theme song. Any suggestions? xoxox

  7. Love those hammocks! When TW had the house, she had a hammock in the back yard and Nicky used to lay on her when she lay in the hammock. TW said she’s in love with Skye.

  9. These hammocks are pawsome. We have shelves on our catio, but this looks way more comfy. Mom printed the instructions. We’re going to see if our dad can build this and attach to some of the shelves so we can have hammocks. We’ll let you know and send photos if he does. Thanks for hopping and sharing all these beauties. We saw Skye on Kevin’s blog today as well. Thanks for joining the blog hop. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  10. Oh my mouses those hammocks look fun. Such comfy places for nappin’. Hmmm… Wonder if my peeps could handle making something like that or if they’d bring the walls down.
