I was wary about buying this since my two girls never used the hammock that came with the cage but as soon as I put this hammock in their cage they started exploring it and about an hour later I caught them sleeping in it. They have had this hammock now for a few months I think and they still love it. They will only sleep there now. When it's a bit warmer, one will sleep inside and one will sleep on top and if it's a little chilly they will snuggle together inside it. I am so happy with this purchase. :) Great quality and speedy delivery! Thank you so much!

About

I make & design quality hammocks & other cage accessories for small pets.

I got my first pet rats in 2003. I quickly learned that hammocks from the pet store were poorly made & expensive. So I decided to make my own hammocks. I started with the flat hammock & saw that my rats chewed to get inside. I began working on designs that would give them the ability to stay inside but to be able to peak out when they wanted to. I called my first design a 'clammy' because the top was raised but the sides of it closed to cover the openings, looking like a clam shell. The girls loved it & friends started asking me to make them for their rats.
My first public sales were made at events for rats.
In 2007 I opened my Etsy shop but because of work & other activities the shop was really not used until 2009. I retired in 2010 & really began focusing on my Etsy shop.
My focus has always been on hammocks that are functional & well made. I realized that some rats chew purposefully & if they had what they wanted & had a healthy enriched environment that chewing was greatly decreased.
Since my first design I have designed other hammocks. When you look at my listings in the description they are described as 'BitsO'Heaven Originals'. These have all been made as a result of things I've observed in my rats.
I make a variety of hammocks. They are well constructed using quality fabric. They are made with cotton fabric on the outside & fleece on the inside. After having a rat loose part of her tail due to getting a string from a terry cloth hammock wrapped around it I decided to only use fabric that raveled minimally or not at all. Cotton fabric ravels some but the threads don't stretch & once raveled they are not very strong. Fleece doesn't ravel at all. So I feel that cotton & fleece are a good combination. The cotton fabric on the outside gives the stretchy fleece stability. So no sagging hammocks :).
I use large metal machine pressed grommets. No loops or straps that can easily be chewed. Machine pressed grommets are 2 parts the grommet it's self that presses in place to lock over a washer. This makes a grommet that rarely comes out. These grommets can also be hammered in but the press makes a tighter seal.
I am always happy to answer any questions about my products. I also love to create hammocks especially for my customers. Just send me a convo to make something just for you & your pets. My hammocks are useful for small pets including, rats, ferrets, degus, sugar gliders, flying squirrels, guinea pigs, mice & I've even made hammocks for birds.
After years of photographing my pets I've come to love photography especially wild life & nature so I opened a photography shop to share my photos. I would love to have you visit Joyoflightphotography: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JoyofLightPhotos
