Cool idea for coonie comfort!

Postby DeweysMom » Wed Jun 07, 2017 11:14 am

Thought I share: I found these on Amazon when I was looking for a regular hammock for myself. Think I'm going to get 2 for my boys. I think they'd dig them!

I will! Gotta get them ordered, installed and using them for a bit. So I'll try to report back in about a month or two.

All I see is vulnerabilities, LOL, please, keep us posted, I've wanted some swings for the boys, but haven't had any luck! We did create a bug tube enrichment thing, I need to get some footage! ♡

Please explain your concerns, because I don't want to buy them for the boys if I think they can get hurt... :shrug:

That is what I was worried about as well.. The swings' destruction. Kevlar might work.

LOL, we talked about building one and that's the same material we came up with. The other boys aren't so obnoxious about it, but Jude? He's gonna turn that beautiful swing into dental floss.

I just ordered one of these, so I'll let you all know how it works out. I think it'll be OK for Bobby - he's usually pretty kind to stuff. But Dewey is Mr. Destructo!

OK, so not the BEST idea for raccoons, but not the worst, either.

The inflatable cushion inserts into a zippered area. How do you think that worked out? Really thought they'd CHEW the zipper open, but they actually unzipped it and spared it harm. The cushion, however, was another story and was DOA the next morning. LOL Plan to have hubby cut a piece of plywood the same size round as the cushion, insert it into the zippered part along with a blanket in lieu of the cushion. Might work, might not. We;ll see.

Other than that, the pod is made of fairly heavy duty canvas, and even though they play through the material (one inside the pod, the other outside), it has yet to show any kind of damage.

My assessment? If $20 isn't a hardship to part with, it's worth purchasing. Just plan alternatives to the inflatable cushion! LOL

Good to know, is the material good for outside use? I'm wanting to build nessie an outdoor enclosure to play in some and think that may be great for it

Yes, the pod is actually designed for outdoor use, I think. I had planned it for my outside enclosure, but once it arrived, I opted to install in their inside enclosure only because of lack of space in their outdoor. If you read some of the reviews, many people have them outside (some suspended from trees, or under decks) and have said they hold up very well to the elements - some have had them up several years and are still in good shape. I think if you can keep it out of the harshest sunlight, it should last several years. Sunlight is hard on stuff!

Additionally, I'm going to be shading the outdoor enclosure with these. They are on their way, I'll let you know what I think of them once they arrive.

Awesome thanks, I think ill get one for nessie soon then, and I'll just be ready to repair it when/if she tears up the pillow :) so far she's inside except for on a leash, but her enclosure will be built soon

She's still a whee tike, not yet ready for full time enclosure time, for sure! :icon-wink: Hoping if she plays on/in this when she's little, she won't be as apt to destroy it? :shrug: My boyz are 3 & 6, so they have a tendency to destroy whatever new things they come in contact with!
