My friend’s cat Gator enjoying his Cat Crib, a gift from last Christmas!

Cat Crib

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!

    I’d like to see the cardboard box be rexamined…such as a fun cardboard fort the cats would like to hide/play/sleep in (different sizes etc). 

    You can contact me at @jeddahsjourney:disqus on Twitter.

    My kitties would love to sleep in one of these! 🙂 

  • What a great idea! I’d love to see a cat tree incorporated into furniture. I was thinking a wall unit that had separated sections some for cat and some for objects. There would have to be no way for cat to enter a section other than their own. Thanks for this idea!!!! Love it. Please hug Petie for me~!!!! 😉

    Id like to see the litter box re-imagined.  dusty old thing.

  • I would love to see a better solution for cats walking on desks.  I don’t know how it would be achieved, but that is my biggest “pet” peeve right now!

  • Our cat loves to be “lint rolled”. Even though we brush him at least once a week if he sees the lint roller (the sticky tape type) he goes kitty crazy for it. Unfortunately, it takes so much time to peel off the fur covered tape that he gets impatient and wants to “help” and then a tug of war begins :). So, maybe someone could reinvent the sticky tape lint roller so that it captures and collects the fur.
    Thanks for the great contest.


    Would love to see a Cat Condo re-imagined.

  • I would like to see the Da Bird re-imaged so that it can be folded up and put away easier.  The cats adore that toy, but it’s so long and it must be hidden or placed in secure location or they will pull it out and trash the feathers on the end. Once the end it trashed, they can’t play with it until I can receive replacement parts.

  • I would like to see a redesign of the cat tree.  I have a dog and 3 cats.  they need a place to go where the dog won’t disturb them.  this cat crib hammock is perfect for them to hide in the kitchen.

  • I’d love to see a redesign on a feline water fountain. There are some standard ones and over the top ones…something modern but sleek and not too pricey would be great.

    This cat crib hammock is amazing! Blown away by it!

  • I would love to see a redesign of heated cat beds! That would be cool. I would love to win the purple cat hammock! rachel (dot) shubin (at) gmail (dot) com

  • I would really like to see my kitchen counter tops re-designed so my girls could have free reign and not get in my way when I’m cooking! The Cat Crib is awesome. My smallest found her way inside my box spring and had me scared to death that I’d squishing her until I closed up the hole. She would LOVE her very own Crib!

  • Carolyn Schellhardt

    This is great!!!!!  If I win one, maybe Cali will give me back the couch!!!!!

  • I’d like a re-imagined mousie – guided by artificial intelligence and Roomba like whole house GPS, it would ‘map’ the house and sporadically run all over the place, resting in designated hidey holes… 

  • I’d like to see a heating pad that could be operated by my elderly and arthritic cat. The cat crib is a fantastic idea. 

  • My cat, Tyrion, loves to hang out in the window to watch the birds, so I would love a redesigned window seat for him.  A window hammock, perhaps?  

    Thanks for the contest!  ^_^

  • What a GREAT idea!!  My cats have been fostered for two years and they
    would LOVE something like this.  I’m getting them back in a couple of
    months and CAN’T WAIT!  Good on ya!

  • our kitties are obsessed with sitting right on the key boards of our computer conveniently when we are trying to type! I would love to have a mock computer keyboard that get warm that I could set up near my laptop while I am working so I could actually get some work done while Erwin and or Ginger snoozes the day away!! I think they would seriously dig this hammock though! they love to  “hang” out!

  • I think an elevated ledge that could be attached to a desk so the cats can assist with computer work and be at eye level with their owner would be wonderful.  Instead of the “inbox” it could be the “catbox”.   sjpeter1 (at) yahoo (dot) com

  •  Actually the best place I can think of is under the cat tree since my older cat can not climb it that well and just sleeps underneath it.

  • I would like to see a floor-to-ceiling cat tree with a kind of “access ramp” to each level, for “pawdicapped” kitties.


  • someone suggested a desk add on – that’s brilliant… something cozy near the action rather than on top of it!

  • queencatlady

    I would love to see some kind of steps that allowed senior kitties to get up on the bed easier, but that could be folded up or were assembled in a way that they did not take up added space.

  • I would like to see a Christmas tree just for cats 😉

  • Theresa O’Connell

    Kitty shelves, shaped like natural objects (leaves, branches, etc.). Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Judy Simon

    Shelves, easily installed to go up the wall like steps with a perch at the top and maybe “cat walk” to another wall & walk down the other set of steps 🙂

  • I would like to see a bedroom night table that would have a pull out cat size stand in it.

  • tamara (on the left) hogs my ottoman, so maybe an ottoman with a cat cubby underneath?

  • My cat is a senior who always seeks warm spots and hiding places, but still enjoys being near me. I would like to see some sort of end table or small table that could be put next to a desk or chair (reading chair in my case) that has a cutaway for the cat to sneak in and cuddle up on a heated pallet inside. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  • I’d love to see the scratcher updated. My dude goes through those like wildfire!

  • I’m ready to see a take on a highly elevated food dish. My kitty, Sophie, tends to regurgitate her food shortly after eating, and the only solution I’ve found so far is to elevate her food dish almost a foot or so, so it’s pretty much level with her head as she’s standing or sitting to eat. Right now I have it rigged up on some plant pots turned upside down! Clearly there’s got to be a better solution, and it know it’s not just my kitty who has this tendency!

  • I would like to see a portable/folding cat crib in a frame, like the old fashioned “tv trays”, with a saggy middle, so I could park it in front of various windows depending on what room I was spending time in. I think my cat would really enjoy that, and I wouldn’t have to do any modification to any window frame areas, so I could use it with any type of window. Adjustable leg heights would make it truly versatile, maybe even perfect! (maybe the pushbutton/click w/holes for safety aluminum legs….) like my vacumn locks together with…..Just ideas. The fabric centers should be removable for washing/replacing.  (in the meantime, my Cleo would really like to win that cat crib)

  • I would really like to see some cool crawlspace like thing as if the cat tree were looked at again in a different way.

    I know my Ashke would like that (and  act crib!)

  • Janet Nicholas  I would like to see stairs that could be easily attached to a wall, would be durable but also easy to take down.

  • I would like to see some of the playhouses and puzzle type toys ‘supersized’, three of my boys are over 20lbs with huge 7 toed paws and they can’t play with those toys that are too small for their paws, or they just crush the stackable playhouses (or get stuck going in-ugh what a a story lol, we had a disaster with our Canadian Cat Cabin) buzzyngabe(at) Thank you & Happy Holidays everyone!

  • What a great idea. I would like the purple one best. Another good idea would be the Crib in more colors and animal prints. Thanks! Dr. Jane Dusek,

  • I’d like to see an uber-modern and minimalistic climbing structure. Free-standing so that nothing has to be attached to a wall. 
    Great giveaway!!!

  • AmanoUsagi

    Hmmmm, I think I would like a reinvention of the S shaped cat scratch-er. I think they could make something really cool.  My two kits love it and use it all the time. Perhaps make a bigger one with more space.

  • shargem69

    I’d love to see a seatbelt designed for cat carriers so they’re secure in the back seat while you’re driving.

  • I’d like to see more furniture that holds a litter box with some flair and function (easy to clean).

  • I would like a cat-attractive, still presentable, easily-disinfected cat tree. roscoesrescue@gmail:disqus .com

  • First of all, I love the a guy owns this cat & loves him so much! I am a huge cat lover & have 2 of my own kitties. They would love this Cat Crib. I’d love to see some sort of a climbing indoor tree that’s much better & fun for the kitties than you usually see in a store & they are way too over priced. If I win I’d love the purple cat crib 🙂 Thanks for this contest & Happy Holidays to you.

  • I’d love to see something that could be hung on the edges/arms of furniture (couches, chairs) for the kitties to scratch–and not be, well, obviously distracting from the decor.  We’ve put a scratching post in the way but our kitties just ignore it and scratch the couch.  🙁

  • I would like to see a cat bed with  a human pillow attached to it – my cat keeps stealing mine!
