You might try making a "test" piece with some scrap rope or cord. Do about 6 inches worth, then take out the knots and measure how much you used. Take that measurement and multiple it by 12 to find out how much it would take for 6 feet.
OMG great idea your cats will have a blast with this. I've not really done much since I was a teen in the 70's but from what I remember for what your trying to do I'd say 6x as long as lenght(6ft). It really depends on rope diameter and pattern/knots your using but here's some info.. Haven't read it thoroughly so don't know if it'll help. https://niromastudio.com/blogs/blog/how-much-rope-will-i-need-for-a-project OR https://www.hitchandarrow.com/blog/2018/1/29/calculating-and-measuring-rope-length-for-macrame-projects
Think about macrame-ing across the width instead of the length. Much shorter cords to deal with.
