Product Listing

Bunk Beds are fun for cats, easy to maintain for their humans and pleasant to the eye.  It's 24" tall, which is a great window height for cats.  The Two Tier Condo is 19" tall and are great for cats or dogs, and I have many customers that use these for a ramp for their dogs. The hammocks are a generous 17" by 20", so they fit even the largest cats.  Hammocks make great sleeping.

You have a choice of outdoor UV resistant designer fabrics, Cordura fabrics, or upholstery grade faux fur for the hammocks that hang on the Bunk Bed.  The frame of the condo is very sturdy, yet the overall weight isn't that heavy so that it can be easily moved around. 

The outdoor fabric is UV resistant, which means they are not going to fade if you place the Bunk Bed in a sunny window.  They are very easy to clean with a damp cloth and hair can be brushed away with your hand.

The Cordura fabrics are 1,000 Denier Textured Nylon w/ Urethane coated fabric. Cordura fabrics are known for their durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs. This fabric is used to make large dog hammocks not only for their strength, but for ease in maintenance. Simply wipe it clean or take it outside to hose it off.  

The faux fur fabrics are not quite as easy to clean as the other fabrics I use, but they are really soft and FUN!  I sometimes can't resist offering a fabric that is simply luxurious.  These are machine washable.
Some assembly required.

I created the Bunk Bed when I realized I needed a solution to the "cat in lap while trying to work" syndrome.  My cats LOVE to sit in my lap when I'm at the computer.  I'm always hopping up from the chair while I work and disturbing them.  I couldn't disturb a sleeping cat without guilt, so built this to place next to my office chair.  Great height for me to reach out to pet them while I work and they don't give me that disgusted glare when I get up from the chair.  Of course another of these landed by a window and I suspect my house will become overrun with these over time.  Just goes to show that cat induced guilt can be turned into something positive.

The 2 tier condo came from 2 unique requests.  The first from someone who needed a ramp up to their bed.  The other from a small dog owner who wanted a ramp to get up to a window ledge.  Lots of great uses for this product.

I have limited supplies of each color and when a color is sold out, I will make other colors available. If these colors do not work with your home decor, lets start a conversation about what can work for you. 

Bunk Beds are generally in stock, but I may be backed up from time to time during the busy seasons.  If I have to make one for you,  I will contact you with an estimated ship date and can have these made in a week. Prices do not include shipping and handling, which will be calculated for U.S. delivery upon checkout.  Contact me for international rates if you need this shipped outside of the U.S.

From Auntie Em's dictionary:
Suck the awake out of you:  the phenomena that occurs when a cat jumps into your lap and causes you to relax so much that you instantly fall asleep.

Suck the awake out of your cat:  the phenomena that occurs when a cat lands in a hammock and causes it to relax so much that it instantly falls asleep.

I've received feedback from my customers that this is occuring.

Construction:  The Bunk Bed measures 20 inches by 17 inches and stands 24" tall.   All corner and connector pieces are furniture grade PVC. The frame and leg pieces are 1" plumbing grade PVC, which has been sanded down to remove the print that you normally find on that material. 

Shipping and assembly:  The Bunk Bed is shipped partially assembled.  The hammocks will be assembled in their frames, and you will need to attach the legs and upright poles.  No tools are required and it assembles in minutes.  Instructions will be shipped with your order.  Let me know if you want an advanced copy of these instructions.

Care:   The hammock fabric can be wiped down with a damp rag for day to day cleaning.  Do not use harsh cleaners on the fabric or it may discolor.  The hammocks can also be removed from the frames and machine washed, gently cycle and dried on a low setting.  This is normally not necessary unless they are particularly dirty.  Instructions for rebuilding the hammock frames are included with the assembly instructions.  The pipes can be wiped down with a damp cloth or Magic Eraser.  They are completely water safe and can be fully submersed in water and scrubbed clean if necessary.
