Window Perch for Cats

Okay , I think it goes without saying that we are all day dreamers at times, right? Well, you’re not the only one.  Your feline friend is probably day dreaming right this moment.  And it’s almost 90% accurate to say they are doing it by gazing out the window; dreaming of catching that plump, feathery bird or that bushy-tailed squirrel.

Your house may already have the ideal set-up for our observing-loving furriends; meaning a nice comfy couch placed purrfectly in front of a big bright window.  If not, then welcome to the group. The window-sill-less-cat-loving-parents.  Basically, if you’re wondering what else you could do to make your fur baby happy (other than 5 key rings, 4 twirling birds, 3 oinky pigs, 2 squeaky mice, or a flying piece of yarn just for meee, just for meeeeeow).. Then you’ve came to the right place!  A window perch for cats is the perfect gift all year round.  No seriously.  Spring – flowers are bloomin’, Summer – bees are buzzin’, Fall – leaves are changin’, and Winter – snow is fallin’.  Do you have any other excuse now?

With a name like Meow Town how can you go wrong, right? Well, though we think this product is hot hot hot, it’s not quite our style.  We like DIY home-made stuff, so you can see that the modern yet pricy window perch isn’t going to be on the top of our list.  But by all means, if it’s your cup of tea then hey, this might just be for you or your kitty named Princess. 😉

Sunny Seat is one of the most durable window perches on the market by being able to hold up to 50 lbs of cat.  Whoa, that’s a lot of fluff!  Great for homes with multiple cats.  Sunny Seat is sure to impress but be careful to wash windows prior to application to ensure a good, sealed fit.

    Just what we needed to return our cats’ favorite window perch to service. The original suction cups finally gave out and we weren’t able to safely mount the perch, and our cats seemed to miss their time lazing in a sunny window. As soon as the new cups were attached and the perch was put in place it was occupied. It’s been up for a couple of weeks with no evidence that the cups won’t work and last as well as the originals.
