Hanging cat beds for large cats: sleeping and swinging at the same time!
Cats spend most of their time sleeping, you know that. And big cats too.
In addition, they like to be perched so that they can observe all their little world quietly.
Why not combine the two and give your little furball a hanging cat bed?
He will be able to spend long hours in front of the window sleeping (sleep is ont of the reason why cats can live long) or observe birds outside while dreaming of catching one one day (Have you noticed the excitement of a cat when he sees birds passing by?).
Then, he can simply fall asleep and regain his strength (just to be all excited after dark…).
Here is a selection of hanging cat beds for large cats at all prices and all styles.
Make your choice!
Fukumaru Cat Hammock
This small hanging cat bed is attached to the wall with 4 screws (be careful, depending on the nature of your wall, you may need expansion screws, not supplied).
It consists of a wooden support and a canvas on which kitty can bask for hours! The canvas can be removed and is suitable for machine cleaning.
The support is made of rubberwood, a strong and durable wood.
The canvas is available in 2 finishes: Black Stripe and White Flannel.
This small hanging bed is ideal for saving floor space. In addition, you can compose yourself a whole entertainment space for your cat thanks to other products from the Fukumaru range, such as the cat climbing shelves or the floating wall shelves.

Rolybag Hanging Cat Bed
This bed is more suitable for small cats, or even kittens. Not sure your Maine Coon or Ragdoll has enough room!
The advantage of this product is that it has 2 sides: one side in faux lambswool for winter, warm and comfortable, and one side for summer in cotton and linen, so that your cat can cool off under strong heat.
It can hang anywhere thanks to its 4 hooks and 4 straps. For example, you can install it under a chair: cats love to hide in this kind of place!
The bed is hand or machine washed, preferably in fairly cold water. You will be sure to wrap the bed in a protective bag so as not to damage your washing machine from the metal hooks.
This hammock for cats is available in 3 colors: black and white, leopard or zebra.

One thing is appreciable: this small hammack comes with 2 additional suction cups.
It is made with breathable Oxford cloth, in order to be both very resistant and not to retain the heat of your cat’s body, to prevent it from overheating.
