My friend’s cat Gator enjoying his Cat Crib, a gift from last Christmas!
The Cat Crib (aka cat hammock $29) was invented by a cat by the name of Vladimir. It’s just a lucky thing his trusty human Greg was around to take notes and help with the prototype (you know, lack of opposable thumbs and all that).
According to Greg, Vladimir loved to chill under the family’s purple chair and started clawing the underside.
“One day when I came home from work I called out to Vladimir…after a little searching I noticed a paw casually hanging out of the hole in the lining of the chair. Vladimir had crawled up into the chair and had fallen fast asleep while laying on the lining – he was actually snoring when I found him. We thought since he enjoyed that type of setup so much we would make him a more permanent one (and save the lining of our other chairs). After a few prototypes, the Cat Crib was born!”
Not only do kitties love the Cat Crib it’s a great space saver and works with a range of chair and side table sizes (adjustable straps). It’s a sturdy polyester weave on the outside and soft fleece on the inside! Of course it’s machine washable!

And now for some gratuitous Vladimir photos! According to Greg, one of the reasons he adopted Vladimir from the shelter was because of how super laid back he was. These photos make that point (the second one is a tired Vlad after doing some Presidential campaigning!).
And as far as how he got the name, Greg originally thought Vladimir was a Russian Blue and needed a culturally appropriate name. But it turns out Russia Blue’s have blue eyes and Vlad does not. Turns out their “Russian” kitty is really a french kitty, he’s a Chartreux! I’d never heard of that kind of kitty – learn something new every day!
