As a cat lover, I can attest to the fact that it often feels as though my pet is also my boss. A cat isn’t going to fawn over you or reduce itself to begging for your affection. Instead, cats tend to be aloof and independent, which can be frustrating for those of us who are used to pets that are a bit more needy.

Your feline companion won’t be impressed when you feed him or her. Yet people have welcomed cats into their hearts for millennia. The ancient Egyptians famously worshipped them. Cats travelled the world on Viking ships. Today, they are some of the Internet’s best memes.

Once every month, our neighbour hosts a “pet-nic” in her garden. Her friends bring their cats along, and it’s a fun way to see all the animals hanging out together. The cats are free to roam around, and it’s a great way for them to socialize and get some exercise.

We may not be pet owners ourselves, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying the company of our furry friends. Sometimes we even like to join them and listen to their stories. We always have a good time doing this and thought it would be nice to surprise them with a gift.

Aside from PVC pipes, you can also use leftover scraps of woods.

Steps to make your own cat hammock:

Start by gathering your supplies. You’ll need half-inch diameter PVC pipes, 90-degree elbow connectors, and T connectors. You can find all of these at your local hardware store. Once you have your materials, you can start building the frame of your cat hammock.

When building your cat hammock, you can choose any dimensions you like, depending on your preference. To put everything together, simply slip the PVC pipes into the connectors and tighten them.

However, you should consider a reasonable height for your cat hammock to be used securely. For example, the height of the hammock should be low enough that your cat can easily get in and out, but high enough that they are not at risk of falling out.

The next step is to cut the other end of the pillowcase so that it can be slid through the frames to complete your cat hammock. Make sure that the end you cut is the opposite of the opened end. Once you have cut the end, slide it through the frames. Once the pillowcase is completely through the frames, your cat can now enjoy its very own hammock
