New Hammock

Sasha was the first kitty to try out the new hammock. Here she is seen through the threadbare old hammock.

I finally replaced the hammock, before the kitties wore it out completely, and before it gave way and a kitty fell through it. I started to replace it last week, but Loki kept attacking me and would not let me take the old one down. I took the old hammock down, threaded the rope through a new beanbag, and hung up the new hammock while Loki was outside pussyfooting around.

Loki: “I say. I say there. Go away there boy, You’re bothering me!” Loki hammocking in the new hammock, miffed that I made him to look at the camera.

Wearing Out

This is the first hammock I made for the kitties. I added a second hammock not too long after hanging this one so the kitties didn’t have to wait so long the do their hammocking. The second hammock also cut down on the cat fights for the hammock. Now both hammocks end up in use at the same time, so the kitties will still line up to wait their turns, and they still fight over the hammocks when hammock hogs spend too much time in them. Sadly, though, the first hammock is wearing out and it won’t be long before it’s mostly bare threads and I’ll have to replace it.
