Finding the best cat trees with hammocks doesn’t sound all that hard, but trust me, it’s more challenging than you think!
See, a ton of great trees come with hammocks…but they have major design flaws that make them virtually unusable.
In all honestly, I always remove them from my cats’ trees before they fall off on their own.
However, if you have your heart set on a fun little swinging hammock for your kitty, I’ve got you covered.
I dug deep to find you five that actually work pretty well, so let’s check them out!

How to Choose the Best Cat Tree with Hammocks
Super quick (like a little bunny) let’s talk about what to look for in a cat tree with a hammock.
You already know the basics: buy a tree that’s actually big enough for your cat, think about stability, look for sisal poles for those claws.
When you buy one with a hammock, though, there are a couple of extra safety-centric guidelines to consider.
- Make sure the hammock supports your cat. Don’t get a teeny hammock made for a kitten for your Maine Coon!
- Check how the hammock attaches. It either needs to bolt into the tree very securely OR have attachments that break away if your cat gets twisted.
- Look at the material. Is it likely to fray and fall apart, or is it nice & sturdy?
In short, we either want something that will actually stay put and hold our cats OR easily break-away in case of an emergency (like a twisted-up kitty!). Preferably both!
Along with these basic safety features, I also looked at overall design to pick 5 diverse and very nifty cat trees for you!

1. Ultimate Tangkula Multi-Cat Tree with Hammock ReviewNo products found.
Okay, so you’ll need A LOT of room for this ginormous cat tree, but isn’t it insanely nifty?
Kind of makes me wish I was a cat so I could use it. It’s like a whole cat playground!
Features & Pros
- Overall size is 71”x18”x102.5” so it’s big enough for several cats.
- Coated with plush fake fur to make it super gentle on kitty’s skin.
- The poles are wrapped in hemp rope vs. plain old sisal, which is infinitely stronger.
- Large hammock is big enough for most cats, and the “break-away” design keeps them safe.
- Also has multiple nest-like hammocks for kitties who like to sit up high and see the world.
- It’s huge, so you need a ton of space for it. It’s also quite heavy!
- Some customers complain (on another model by same brand) that they were missing significant pieces & hardware. Eeek!
- No warranty? I can’t find any information on one, which is a major “con” in my opinion.
I’m not loving the lack of warranty and the few complaints about the company forgetting to include hardware, but I do love the tree itself.
Everything about it just screams, “FUN!” for cats. I know mine would go nuts for it!
The only major issue for me is the size. I couldn’t possibly fit it anywhere in my home.
Still, if you have a big house or a special cat room, go for it!

2. Wall-Mounted CatastrophiCreations Cat Mod Gardens Set ReviewNo products found.
From space-hogger to space-saver, if you want an elaborate tree but don’t have the room for the one above, turn to CatastrophiCreations.
We’ve seen this tree before when we talked about climbing walls for cats and we’ll probably see it again in the future because I adore it.
Features & Pros
- Totally modular wall-mounted system means you can put it anywhere anyway you like.
- The hammocks aren’t just an afterthought but an integral part of the design, so they’re extra sturdy.
- Each hammock holds up to 62lbs, so they’ll have zero issues holding your robust kitty.
- The design is gorgeous and doesn’t look gaudy in your home.
- Comes with handy little planters for some catnip or other kitty-safe herbs.
- Available in multiple colors & finishes to perfectly match your decor.
- The obvious con: it’s fairly pricey so it may be out of range for a lot of cat owners on a budget.
- You definitely need to know your walls, namely where the studs are located.
- The planters aren’t waterproof (the only major design flaw, in my opinion).
Honestly, aside from the price being out of my range, I can find very little wrong with CatastrophiCreations products.
The price is justified by the fact that it’s made with high-quality materials, though.
If your budget allows it and you really need a space-saver cat tree with hammocks, this is the one you want!

3. Hey-bro Extra Large Multi-Level Cat Tree ReviewNo products found.
If you need a traditional cat tree that can handle a large breed, the Hey-bro (interesting name, huh?) is a good option.
While this one doesn’t have swinging hammocks, it does have two fabulously plush nest-like hammocks that cats will love.
Features & Pros
- Overall size is 21.7″L x 21.7″W x 63.8″H, so it’s not a total beast but still big enough for cats to really get a workout.
- Includes two cozy hammocks that are securely attached to the poles.
- Sisal wraps the poles from top to bottom, giving kitty plenty of places to sharpen those claws.
- Caves are large enough for bigger cats like the Savannah.
- Comes with anti-toppling devices for added security.
- Perches are covered in super thick plush fabric for the ultimate napping spot.
- While the hammocks are great overall, they do wobble a bit, which may freak out some cats.
- The jump from the base to the first level is a bit steep for kittens, munchkin cats or seniors with joint problems.
- The dangling toy could be a safety hazard since it doesn’t break away.
I love that everything on this tree is actually big enough for large kitties. While I don’t adore the toy, it’s easy enough to just snip off.
I wouldn’t recommend it for seniors or teeny kitties, just because that first level is so far off the ground.
Yes, it comes with a ladder, but honestly, my cats have never used the ladder on their tree in the 2+ years I’ve had it.
Bottom line: it’s a good buy for average to large breeds who are still in their agile years.

4. FEANDREA Sturdy Cat Tree With Hammock Review
FEANDREA is another brand that we’ve talked about before. Along with Go Pet Club, they’re among my favorite budget-friendly brands.
Unfortunately, the latter doesn’t really make good cat trees with hammocks, which is why they’re not on this list.
Features & Pros
- Overall size: 36.2″L x 35.4″W x 68.5″H
- Comes with two hammocks: a traditional one and a nest-style one.
- The traditional hammock attaches fairly securely, but the nest one is my favorite.
- Condo is roomy enough for most cat breeds.
- Includes a removable cat bowl that’s great for feeding kitty up high away from dogs and toddlers.
- The base is strengthened with battens (as in “batten down the hatches!”)
- Comes with anti-toppling devices for even more stability.
- FEANDREA is all about customer service and will go above & beyond to make sure you’re happy with your purchase.
- Sisal only covers the mid section of the poles. I prefer top to bottom coverage.
- Again, the dangly toy doesn’t break away so it could become a hazard.
- The house is only solid on the top and base. The sides are just fabric.
I love the added safety features that help keep this from tipping over. The toy is easily removed, so it’s not a huge deal.
It’s room enough for most cats without costing a small fortune, so that alone makes it a great pic for Maine Coon owners.
My only major issue is the sisal wrapping, or rather lack of it on the top and bottom of the poles.
If that bothers you, maybe you could add extra rope so it covers the entire pole.
- DETACHABLE CAT BOWL INCLUDED: Specially designed pet bowl allows your feline companions enjoy their meal while staying high up there, making this cat furniture their ultimate sweet home
- STABILITY IS ALWAYS PRIORITY: Constructed by CARB-certified natural particle boards and strengthened with battens at the bottom to ensure overall stability; anti-toppling fittings are included for double security
- ALL-IN-ONE RELAXING SPOT: Luxury top perch with raised edge allows your cat rest on its head while watching over the house; large condo, funny hammock and cozy basket provide different napping options
- SISAL-COVERED SCRATCHING POSTS: Reinforced posts (dia. 2.8") are wrapped with natural sisal rope to allow nail scratching and promote exercising; this cat tree is the perfect spot for your cats to jump around
- NOT SATISFIED YET? FEANDREA provides you with professional customer service both before and after your purchase; don’t wait any longer, add this to your home today!
5. Space-Saving ZNWIYE Cat Tree Condo Review
Last on our list of the best cat trees with hammocks: a space-saving budget-friendly pick under $100.
The ZNWIYE (don’t even ask me how to say that) is a compact & lightweight without scrimping on features that cats love.
Features & Pros
- Overall size is 24 x 18.5 x 35.2
- Surprisingly roomy for such a compact tree, with large platforms & perches.
- The hammock is a nest-style deal that’s large enough for a medium to smaller end of the large spectrum.
- Covered in cozy high-quality plush that’s soft & comfy for your kitty.
- Sisal rope wraps the poles from top to bottom (yay!).
- Easy to assemble.
- ZNWIYE as a seller has excellent reviews as well, so you can feel confident that they’ll solve any issues that may arise.
- While the platform & hammock is roomy, the condos are a bit too small for larger cats.
- No added stability features, so it can be wobbly.
- Once again, the dangling toy can be a safety hazard (cats can get twisted up in it).
Overall, this is a good option for cat owners who don’t have a lot of space and/or extra cash for one of the bigger cat trees with hammocks.
While it’s lacking in stability features, it’s low to the ground so I’m not too concerned with that particular con.
Pardon my repetition, but the toy is easy enough to remove, so it doesn’t have a huge impact on my opinion.
I love that the seller has so many positive reviews, too. It gives me more confidence in buying.
If you have the budget (and walls) for it, definitely go with the CatastrophiCreations.
It’s just so unique & stylish that you really can’t go wrong with it!
However, if you can’t hang massive cat tree systems on your walls, I find that you can never go wrong with FEANDREA.
That said, if you have the room for it, the Tangkula is just so incredibly neat!
