Give your cat a hideaway under a chair

Image via CatCrib.com

I'm pretty cat-obsessed, so this little item has made it to the top of my wish list. My two cats each have their own chair that they perch under to keep them safe from whatever they think might harm them (see: nothing). But that's how cats are, and why the Cat Crib is so flippin' awesome. It's a little cat-sized hammock that attaches to any four-legged chair or small table with enough room underneath to fit a kitty. And actually, it holds up to 20 lbs. (9 kgs), which should hold even the biggest of cats, so it's not that small.

It costs $29 USD and takes up no floor space, so it's pretty cost- and space-efficient for small homes. But wait, there's a video of a cat totally using the shit out of this, too:

I totally want to hug that gray cat. What a cutie. If your cat's natural instinct is to lay under a chair, this hammock might be just what he or she would love.

Where does your cat sleep? Is it anywhere but in the beds your bought them?

  1. This is amazing! I love this idea. My cats hang out under the dining chairs anyway, why not make it comfy for them?! OMG, I NEED THIS.

  2. That gray kitty looks like he could be a Russian Blue. They're my favorite cat!!

    • I rescued a Russian Blue a few months ago. That breed is timid but so sweet and cuddly once it gets to know you. <3

      Awesome find with the cat hammock thingy. Totally adding it to my wish list for my kitties.

  3. Super cute, I definitely want that. I have only two concerns: 1. How do the corners stay up on the chair legs and not fall to the ground? 2. Why isn't it just a little bigger so my two cats who ae cuddlers can both enjoy it?

    • My cat is beastly big (tall, stocky and pudgy) so we have a camping style chair that we put out for him. The seat is made of fabric and hangs from the metal supports that let it compact into a cylinder. He loves the hanging feeling and often cries if he can't get into the chair.

      If he can fit into it, then it might work for your two kitties!

    • there is some special rubber like material on the straps that keep it from slipping down– mine has not slipped down. I have smaller cats.

  4. It's like you're in my head!!! Our cat has made his own little hammock under our bed. The fabric attached to the bottom of the box spring was loose so he would crawl in and sleep there. He still does, especially when the vacuum comes out. This thing is going on my christmas list!

  5. I wanna to try to make one, out of thrift store sweatshirts and velcro. ::schemes::

  6. That kitty looks like my scaredy cat Sasha (she's a rescue adopted russian blue)
    The hammock looks like the perfect spot for our other cat to hife and attack ankles from

  7. I'm actually on the Cat Crib email list (though I haven't bought one yet for our new kitten) and they JUST sent me a COUPON CODE!

  8. OMG I want one! And I already have a grey cat to put in it. WIN!

    1 agrees
  9. OMG. Do want. I've been wanting to make a hammock for our kitties, but could never figure out what to fashion it to to make it work.

  10. So squeee! I wish my kitten liked sleeping under chairs so I could get her this. I do have a whale of a Lab who would love one, wonder if they come in dog sized…

    2 agree
  11. This seems like the sort of thing I would buy and the cats would never use just to spite me.

    8 agree
    • That sounds pretty true of most of the….oh, twenty odd cats that have been in my life over the years. My current pair, Watson and Adler, would eye it with trepidation, wonder why it smells funny, then sit ON the chair/table. Ahh, kitty cats. How you complicate matters. <3

      1 agrees
  12. Oh my gosh, this is what I'm making all the cats in my life for Christmas. Also, love that russian blue. Mine just passed away after an incredibly long life full of fresh tuna, tummy rubs, and lactose-milk every morning.

  13. I do totally want one. I think I'll work out if they ship to the UK, but – frankly – it's a lot of cash given that so far my cat sleeps *everywhere BUT* in the bed I bought her. Gah.

    She has, however, re-purposed the cat igloo into a hunting lodge. No way the feathered dangly toy can see her when she's hiding in there!

    Hum. Perhaps I'll give making one a go.

    1 agrees
  14. i WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ONE THAT FITS UNDER A COFFEE TABLE..MAYBE A DOUBLE LOUNGER

    1 agrees
  15. So I don't have a cat (my oldest furbaby passed away recently) but I DO have four big rabbits (largest is 6kg) most rabbit beds are too small for them but this would be perfect! Now I'm going to go search for more cat toys that could double as bunny toys!

  16. Oh man. I wish we had any chairs in my house that would work with this, my kitties would (probably) love it!
    Definitely keeping this in mind for the day in the (distant) future that my family moves into a house big enough that we have a dining room table set up, instead of just eating all our meals at the coffee table in the living room!
