Abstract: Axially and radially stretched Mooney surfaces of revolution are found to tend to catenoids as the stretching tends to infinity. Moreover, two catenoids are found to exist for any given set of stretching parameters. A formal two-term asymptotic solution is obtained explicitly and the stretching of a cylindrical surface is given as an example.
