Shelter Cats

DIY Catification

A few months ago, we were contacted by volunteer at the Longmont Humane Society in Colorado. She had questions about the wall hammocks Rick has been making out of wood. I was happy to share his plans, but they figured out another method – using plumbing supplies!
We had to give it a try.

Here’s our Rufus the Red keeping an eye and paw on our hardware store purchases.

After all the pieces were screwed together, mounted on a piece of wood, and painted, our Mickey Mouser tried out the fabric component.

Rick installed the hammocks at PAWS and Zeus gave his approval.

Success! Thank you to our new friends in Colorado.
Also, more good news: handsome Zeus has been adopted.

That is terrific. Rick really did a great job. And Zeus, you are just so handsome and we are thrilled that you have found a home. Everyone have a great day.

OH! What a super innovation the Volunteers told you. Both ways are making some happy contented cats! Zeus, I am so glad you were adopted and I hope you keep your name! For some reason mom and I aren’t getting notification of your blogs as we used to do. Wee will just click and go then.

What a great project. This is totally cool. Zeus certainly seems to enjoy it. We are going to share this with our daddy. We have perches on our catio, but they are made from wood. This looks so much more comfy. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

The hammocks look GREAT Maggie & Rick!!! Glad we shared hammock info to help the cats!!! So happy Zeus got adopted!!! All the kitties in your write-up are so adorable……and they all did a great job on “quality control” 🙂

My motto is always “It’s all about the cats!!”

Those are completely cool. We have a lot of kitty perches already, but my next sleeping spot may just be a hammock. So glad Zeus was adopted.

Very cool! This is a great idea for a DIY project. Your kitties are great helpers. They look like they want to build some more cat furniture with you. 🙂

Love it! We’re not super handy around here, but we might just have to give this a try.
