Some time ago, I participated in an on-line auction and bought a cat-hammock. It is, in fact, a Ham-Mick, made by Forty Paws. A very good purchase it was, too, as it is always in use by one of three cats (Tucker, Josie, Kola) and sometimes a fourth (Renn). But Tucker, though he enjoys snoozing in the hammock, especially, for some reason, after nine o’clock at night, has a reaction that is different than the other cats’.
When the hammock arrived, it was liberally covered with cat-nip. That has a bad effect on some of my beasts (Tungsten, for instance, becomes almost comatose). But after a brief shake, the hammock was put together and ready for use.
Periodically, however, Tucker will detect a smell of cat-nip strong enough to go a little loopy. He rubs his fuzzy face up and down, back and forth. He rolls and twists, this way and that. It’s a very mild reaction and he seems to enjoy himself without getting carried away, though sometimes he ends up a little distance from the hammock, demonstrating his true roly-poliness…
And though I wrote that Tucker did not get carried away, he does sometimes push the hammock from its place. I’ve found it half-way across the dining area, on its way to the bedroom. Then I know who has been having a little fun, and that there’s a nip in the air.
Now that is one happy Tucker!ReplyDelete
Haha! We think that was a splendid purchase indeed. Those photos of Tucker are adorable. :-)ReplyDelete
he sure does LOVE that ham-mick :) that last picture is adorableReplyDelete
Just look at the bliss on the face in the last picture. I love itReplyDelete
I love the happy kitty picture at the end most of all!ReplyDelete
He is enjoying the nip and the hammock. We won a Ham-Mick a few years ago in one of the auctions and both boys loved it. Flynn still loves it and sleeps there most nights for an hour or so before he comes to bed.ReplyDelete
Absolutely blissful kitty! What a great photo at tale's end.ReplyDelete
He is so adorable. Love that happy face at in the last photo best also. I really need to invest in one of those next for the boys.ReplyDelete
