We have two cats that we got from a shelter almost six years ago. The male wants nothing to do with a hammock but the little female loves to hang. She prefers laying on me rather than the fabric. One night I was outside hanging and it was about 40 degrees. I woke up and looked out and there she was sitting on a stump looking at me. I reached down and she came over and let me pick her up. We spent the rest of the night with her snuggled up beneath my top quilt.
