This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in January of 2018. Offering a secure and elevated surface for lounging or surveying their territory, our selection of cat hammocks includes window- and wall-mountable options, as well as structures with scratching posts, toys, brushes and resting platforms. One of these should help to keep your feline happy and comfortable and, if you're lucky, out of your favorite chair for at least a few minutes. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

May 21, 2020:

I've always thought that cats have this otherwordly spirit about them when interacting with humans and other animals around them. That's not a bad thing. In fact, this attitude shows that felines have an appreciation for their environment and a behavior that is often construed as something regal and almost royal. After all, cats love to perch in high places and they enjoy viewing the world below them, almost as if they're keeping an eye on their "kingdom". They can do this with a variety of cat trees and scratching posts. If not for the instinctual behavior to view the world in this way, that type of furniture wouldn't be such a perfect fit for their way of life. These hammocks provide an additional way for your furry friend to do all those cat things.

Considering that window perches are a convenient resting spot for most felines, we've added items like the Kitty Cot Deluxe and K&H EZ Mount, both of which can be fastened to glass using suction cups. They can also lay flat against the glass so you can close the blinds and shades over them at night without having to remove them from the window itself.

Although it's quite expensive, we've added the CatastrophiCreations Playplace due to its size and ability to accommodate multiple felines. It's also relatively easy to mount to the wall.

We've also added the Petstages Easy Life Lounge due to its X-shaped, two-in-one design that works as both a hammock and scratching post. It also comes with catnip.

If you're looking for a traditional hammock, you can go with the Catoneer Vibrant or Joyelf Soft, the former of which assembles quickly by hand while the latter has a double-sided cover that's ideal for year-round use.
