Pumpkin is my baby. He's a Ragamuffin cat that loves to follow me around the house and loves to be held. When I was younger, I used to carry him around the house in an extra bookbag. I wanted one of those handy-dandy baby slings just for him, but they're just so expensive.

*Lightbulb!*
I have a sewing machine! I have a computer! I have internet!
I found a simple tutorial: http://www.ida.net/users/stace/sling.html

Voila, my kitty sling:




(He likes to be floppy  Cheesy)

He's adorable!  How long will he ride around in the sling?  I bet one of my cats would love that, the other one is way to independent though.

Pumpkin used to be about 16 pounds, but he's lost weight in the past year or so, so I guess he'd be about 14 or so.

I used a thin fleece blanket (mine was one of those airplane blankets :p), because it has a lot of give for his weight but doesn't strain my shoulder.

I love that.  I can't believe your cat will ride around like that.  I have three cats - two of which do not allow themselves to be picked up, but one, my little boy, loves to be held.  I wonder if he would let me carry him around in something like that?

Oh how cute! Pumpkin looks so adorable in that second picture Cheesy I've been meaning to make one of those for my dog for a long time, but I've been lazy. My little Shih Tzu, Penny, demands to be hauled around constantly, and if you set her down, she instantly starts making the most pathetic crying noises  Roll Eyes Now at least with a sling I can have both of my hands free to do other things.

My boyfriend and I were at the park the other day and this lady had one of those, but a human baby was inside. I said, "I want one of those for Posey..." (inspired, of course, by this post) he thought I was crazy, now I'll show him this.

I have 13 cats and they're all fixed, but I have 2 or 3 that demand you pick them up and tote them around or they swat at you. I don't think I could put both of them in that, can you imagine the fight that would break out right around your middle. Maybe I could do them in shifts. Oldest cats are 15 or 16 and the youngest are 2. I think your cat is definitely a miniature lion.

That is so sweet! I had a rag when I was younger, and she definetly liked to be carried around. In reference to one of the earlier posts, you can carry a 16 pounder in a sling. I now carry my little man (human, lol) in a sling, and he's up to 28 pounds. If they're sewn sturdy, slings hold a lot of weight. I'd imagine a cat would feel like nothing after carting my boy around all day! Smiley

Thank you everyone so much for the nice comments Smiley

I just got back from a 2.5-week trip, and Pumpkin is desperate for constant attention, so I'll definitely be breaking out the sling or making a new one that doesn't collect so much hair :p

Oh my goodness!  I have never heard of any other cat who insisted on being held on their back before!  My mom's cat is like that.  She also must have her head hang off so she can see everything (upside down mind you).  THe result of this is that it looks like you are carrying around a dead cat.  Goofiest little cat.  When she was a kitten, you could turn her slowly all the way around like a ferris wheel and she would just lay limp in your hands.  If there was a way to make this so she could lay on her back, she would love this thing.

My dog and my dad's dog weigh between 3 lbs and 8 lbs.  They are "hold me" whores!  I bet this would work for them. I was tinkering with the sling that is more like for a human baby with the arm and leg holes, but this looks much better for a dog.  Your floppy cat is cute, too  Smiley  Thanks for the link and the idea!

This is so funny to me as my male cat can't get enough attention or love so for a while I carried him in a sling I made from an old sheet. Yours looks alot better than my did  Cool

GOOD JOB!
