    My cat loves to play with the straps or whoopies that dangle on the ground during set up, but she does not want to have anything to do with getting in the hammock, especially with me.
    We are the crazy people.

    I don't need to make my pack lighter. I need to make my a_ _ lighter.

    That rarely works, Steve. Try time out.

    Re: The cats in the cradle

    I have been trying out a new UKHammocks top and underquilt combination and whilst the Down TQ (summer fill) was too hot for me on my indoor hang one of my cats in now obsessed with it.

    My cat scares the heck out of me when he comes near my gear. He loves to be pet and "stretch" his claws, I am assuming all cats do that.

    He actually almost foiled my DIY tq. He stretched out on the fabric and put a tiny puncture in the fabric, luckily it was fabric that I had to trim off anyway, but if it was in the useable area, I would have been sadddd.
    I just want to say I REALLY don't like it when people declaw their cats. I won't get all preachy but if you haven't had someone tell you that, you can do a little research into the subject.

    I have one male and one female cat they know when it's time to go camping. They both follow me out to my campsite, stand guard while i set up the hammock. Bob has a camp chair that he sleeps on next to the front of the hammock while Eris just curls up at the base of the tree. Both will spend the night with me.

    Holy crap! That's not an house cat, that's a yearling mountain lion!


    More seriously, my cats don't generally mess with my gear when I'm outside (they're pretty neurotic: one's a crazy little old lady--12 years old--and doesn't like any changes to her environment; one's a big scaredy cat--at 17 lbs, he regularly loses fights to both of his 12-lb siblings and runs away at the slightest noise; and one's just too interested in hunting anything smaller than a moose that moves around the yard to mess with boring old me), thankfully. On the other hand, I always try to pull them inside before actually sleeping (as opposed to napping) out there, and I always make certain that they're inside when I'm treating with Permethrin.
