Mancat Monday

Figgy's hammock.
Hi everyone, it's the Mom today.

Last week, I went to visit my friend S and his kitty, Figgy.  Figgy is about 20 months old.  He is a handsome orange mancat.  I love visiting with him.  He loves to talk and play - sometimes he'll play fetch with me for an hour!  He has so much energy.

Anyway, S had seen Carmine's hammock, and I thought Figgy might like one, so I sent his dad the link in case he wanted to get one for Figgy.  He decided it was a good idea and ordered one!

So when I was over there last week, we got it out so I could set it up for Figs (my nickname for him).  It is made a little differently than Carmine's, and the instructions were not very helpful!  I played around with it for a while and tried all kinds of configurations trying to figure it out.  Oh the joys of being blind as a bat, haha!

But I persevered.  I was determined to get that thing together for little Figs! 

Figgy eats some treats off his hammock.

After a lot of playing around with it, I finally figured it out.  Did I sure feel accomplished (it doesn't take much!)!

After I got it together, S put some treats on it for Figs.  Figs gobbled up the treats but didn't stay in the hammock.  He'd check it out occasionally while I stayed, but he wasn't too sure what to think of it quiet yet by the time I left.

The next day, I got this photo.  Figgy decided he likes his hammock after all!  I figured it would just take him a little time to adjust to his new comfy place. :) 


  1. It's nice to see him finally enjoying the comfy!

  2. What a nice hammick! And the catnip is an added bonus.

  3. Hmmm... Handsome orange mancat. Kinda goes without sayin'. Hehehehe.... PURRS.

  4. Figgy is so handsome! That's to be expected, though, as orange boys sure do rock. And he looks so happy and cozy in his hammock. I have yet to get my kitties a hammock, but really do intend to. Happy Monday!

  5. Yippee for a cool hammick, for treats, and for friends with handsome orange ManCats!

  6. Figgy's a cute kitty! I want to get hammocks for all kitties, but The Hubby says we've got enough stuff around here...spoil sport!

  7. What a cool hammock ! Figgy is a beautiful orange mancat ! Purrs

  8. It usually takes a little bit for a kitty to decide whether he likes something - I though Figgy would be in that hammock sooner than later.

  9. Thanks for the share. Fig just needed a little time and now he's a happy boy. Now he will have great cat naps thanks to you. Great photos. Have a great day.
