DIY Cat Hammock

I’ve shared many stories about my love for cats. You all know I live on a large farm and have had the ability to take in my cats over the years. They are pampered, loved and enjoy our many barns to take up residence here on the farm. I love that I am able to give these cats a furever home. I tend to spoil them with toys and other homemade crafts but my diy cat hammocks have to be a favorite.

When I’m on the road or out shopping I always tend to think of my best ideas. I was in the pet aisle at my local Dollar General buying Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® cat food the other day when I thought… a cat hammock would be the perfect way to pamper my sweet cats. After I bought my cat food I was off to find my supplies. Many of the supplies I actually already had at home.

In the back of my mind I was also thinking about how perfect timing it was to create this diy cat hammock with all of you since October is adoption month. It’s also the ideal time to share with all of you about the Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Furever Home™ donation campaign and Rachael Ray™ sweepstakes.

About Rachael Ray™ Nutrish®:

In 2007, with help from pet nutrition experts, Rachael Ray created Nutrish super-premium food and treats for dogs inspired by recipes from her own kitchen. In 2014, we were very excited to grow the brand into the world of cat food. Whether intended for dogs or cats, Nutrish recipes are made with simple, wholesome ingredients like real meat or fish, and do not contain poultry by-product meal or fillers.

Rachael’s Rescue® was created for all of the forgotten pets – the ones who might not have someone who loves them as much as they deserve. A portion of proceeds from each sale of Nutrish is donated to The Rachael Ray Foundation, which helps animals in need through Rachael’s Rescue. Through September 2017, Rachael’s Rescue has donated more than $21 million dollars to pet charities and other organizations that do good for animals. The funds are used for food, medical supplies, treatments, and more for animals in need. Many more animals around the country need help, and through Rachael’s Rescue, together we can make a difference in the lives of many four-legged friends.
