Cat Hammocks (for Walls)

Cat hammock examples

Our cat hammocks are functional fabric walkways that cats can also lounge and relax on. They are designed to create a flexible, yet sturdy surface for your cat to traverse across or rest on high on the wall. The thick heavy-weight canvas fabric works really well to create an elevated walkway that your cat can sink their paws into and have enough traction to confidently run and play around. The fabric also stretches slightly to form to your cats’ body and function as a comfortable cat bed.

Benefits of Cat Hammocks

Are Cat Hammocks good for cats? Providing a Cat Hammock for your feline friend gives them an area of their own and a space to embrace their natural instincts to climb and play.  Feline enrichment is incredibly important, and we work with behavioral experts to gain insight into the developing process.  Our cat wall hammock has been featured in numerous places, including on the hit show My Cat From Hell where behavioralist Jackson Galaxy demonstrates how to utilize the pet hammock to help correct behavioral issues with cats.

  • Save space: An indoor Cat Hammock is a great option for those who live in smaller spaces, as they do not take up any floor space. They can be installed on any sturdy wall, which makes them a versatile and space-saving option.
  • Promote relaxation: When cats lay on the Cat Hammock bed, they’re elevated above perceived threats, and the fabric forms to their bodies, creating a comfortable space to relax. Providing them with this type of space of their own can help to reduce stress and anxiety.
  • Improve agility: Climbing and jumping onto the hammock helps to improve your cat’s agility and balance, which can help to keep them physically healthy and active.
  • Reduce boredom: Cats can get easily bored, and a wall-mounted hammock can provide them with a new and exciting space to explore and play in. This can help to prevent destructive behavior and keep your cat mentally stimulated.
  • Aesthetically pleasing: Our pet hammocks are modular, so they can be installed to perfectly fit your home. Choose between a wide range of colors and textures to best compliment your home decor, while adding a conversation-starting habitat for your feline companion.

Cat Hammock Design and Functionality

Kitten playing on cat hammock

We have a variety of pet hammock layouts, from our standard single sections to larger and more intricate designs that create Wall-Mounted Cat Trees. The modular Cat Hammock bed has fabric made with mounting points every 8” to give you more flexibility on where they’re connected on the wall and to accommodate both 16 and 24-inch spaced studs, the two most common stud spacing found in homes. The hammocks are held securely to the wall with mounting planks made from sustainably grown bamboo and hold 85 lbs per plank and 65 lbs on each hammock section. Each plank has a bracket that allows you to attach various cat furniture options of not only Cat Hammocks, but also attachments like Cat feeders, Planters, Scratching Posts or Cat Shelves.

How to Mount a Cat Hammock on the Wall

Install the Cat Hammock into cement, brick or drywall with studs spaced 16” or 24” apart on center. It’s always helpful to look over our installation section prior to installing your cat wall. Please follow the links below to let us walk you through the process to building your cat their new cat hammock wall.

Frequently Asked Questions

Over the last 10 years, we’ve tried out many different materials when it comes to wall hammocks. From there we let the cats decide by observing them play and lounge, and also listening to customer feedback. We found that the best material is a heavy-weight cotton canvas. It has a natural feeling and a texture that allows cats to sink their claws into. When you suspend the material with it pulled taught it creates a walkable surface, while still offering a comfortable level of support for cat naps.

Kittens are energetic and fearless, so they benefit greatly from have an area designed for climbing and to play. Depending on the age of the cat, it may be a good idea to install the cat hammocks lower on the wall. Since kittens are young, fearless, and sometimes clumsy, they do tend to be more prone to falling.

A wall-mounted Cat Hammock is a stronger alternative to window cat hammocks that utilize a suction cup. With wall construction, windows are built with 2x4s running along the edge of the window, so that makes mounting on either side of a window a great option.

When we started selling Cat Hammocks in 2013, we were the first company we know of offering a wall-mounted hammock. Ten years later, with thousands of Cat Hammocks sold, we’ve never heard of a serious incident where a cat was injured. We have heard of cats falling off the furniture, and that’s something to keep in mind when deciding on how high to install your furniture. 

With any furniture that’s elevated off the ground, there’s always going to be the chance of a cat getting hurt. We feel strongly that the benefits of providing this enrichment go way beyond the risks associated. Letting a cat sleep all day feels safe in the moment, but it’s also under-stimulating and can lead to health issues over time. Any behaviorist or vet will tell you it’s important to keep cats active and fit and that wall mounted furniture is a very good way to encourage that.  

With that said, please know there are always risks involved with elevating your cat’s area from the floor. If you have a cat with special needs or one that’s elderly, we suggest only mounting high enough to where they would be able to hop down to the ground.

  • Heavy-weight canvas – This cotton option is made to be quickly removable and can be either handwashed with cold water or placed in washing machine with cold water on gentle cycle. To dry, we suggest hang-drying. A nice method for this is to reattach the fabric on the wall planks and let it dry in place. 
  • Vinyl – Take a damp washcloth and either a diluted soapy water or pet-safe cleaner and wipe down hammock sections without removing from the wall.

Exercise is important to keep your cat healthy.  Just remember to start in small doses. When we first got Bronson, he would quickly tire out when playing with toys, but when anything with food was involved, he’d push through. Make sure to give your cat a break if they start panting or sticking their tongue out. 

We’ve put a blog together showing some method that worked really well for keeping Bronson active through out the day.  Please have a look: 6 Tips To Keep Your Cat Active.
