"Purring would seem to be, in her case, an automatic safety-valve device for dealing with happiness overflow." -Monica Edwards
Cats like to lounge. Some can sleep for up to 20 hours per day. So why not give them an eco-friendly, comfortable and safe place to recharge? At 25" long x 21" wide x 12" high, Peach Pet Provisions Kitty Lounger is the perfect size for any nap-loving cat or dog, and any size home. The design has changed slightly in the past few years to become even more attractive and streamlined.
What we love about it: It's 100% made in the USA. There are no tools needed for assembly. The attractive wood base is made from VOC-free, sustainable Pure-bond plywood. It’s sturdy and unlikely to tip over (unless there are zoomies going on…see below). The foam-padded feet do not mark the floor. We’ve had ours for over 3 years now and it still looks new. I can see this hammock lasting us a very long time and it is used all day, every day. But, the company does offer replacement fabric hammocks for the bed, if necessary! Less than 5 minutes went by after assembly before the cat was in It happily sleeping. It’s attractive; it looks like a piece of furniture rather than a pet bed. The available fabric choices are modern and varying to match any décor.
The lounger covers are extremely well made and highly durable. The stitching is very high quality and strong. They are machine washable and made from 100% USA grown cotton. The fabric is heavy-weight upholstery quality ; thick, durable and non-fading. I sew, and I can say that the cover is beautifully well made with confidence! It’s cooler in warm weather to lay on than a traditional stuffed bed due to the increase air flow and elevated height. Another bonus: due to the fact that this bed has no stuffing in it, Honey was originally unable to destroy it and disinterested in trying.
The hammock is rated for pets under 20 pounds, however we have consistently seen at least two cats, a dachshund and a cat or just one rather large cat successfully use the hammock with no problem. Our dachshunds have been caught snoozing in the hammock as well. Looking for something more traditional? They also sell gorgeous stuffed pillow beds: made & sourced in the USA with removable, machine washable cotton covers and stuffed with eco-friendly fiberfill made from recycled plastic bottles. They feature channeled inserts keep fill more evenly distributed, 14 stylish colors/prints and they come in four sizes. The company even sells bandannas to match!
We don’t travel much, but when we do our pets come too. One of the things I really love about this hammock is that it folds up in minutes to pack away and set up quickly and easily in a new temporary location. And, because it is so lightweight, it’s easy to move around when vacuuming (I just slide it with my foot).
Bonus: when taking a running start and launching onto the hammock, it can occasionally tip over. In this position, the cats used it as a spot to hide behind and ambush the dachshunds. Because it is lightweight, this provided a safe, fun place for the animals to play with little danger of injury. Even with the launching and the stalking, the hammock has stayed in like-new condition and still continues to be a favorite resting spot for our two cats and our four small dogs.
