Recommendations for window cat perches
 
I'm looking for a good window sil perch for Clancy, for his catroom. The window is 5 feet up. I bought this one:

But it doesn't look like it will be as stable as it does in the picture. His cat tree doesn't go up high enough, and any of the other cat trees are too much money and/or too unstable. Anyone have a particular ledge or perch they like?

My nephew and his fiance has one simular to that. And it actually holds both their cats. Can clancey not jump from the cat tree to the window sil? That what my guys do.

I love this one.

OOh, I like that one!

Yes, Clancy can jump onto it; it's just that it this plastic floppy thing. (I haven't put it up yet).

We don't have the money for those fancy petstore type ones, so I went to the home depot and bought three of their put it together yourself wooden shelves... they come unfinished, so I stained them, and installed them right under the window sill. They are very sturdy, which was a concern for Buddy as he's a big boy, and the cats love them, I imagine I could add something fuzzy on top of them to make it more of a napping spot, but they work perfect for bird watching and all the cats use them. They were $6 each. :thumbs up

Now that I see the one mona_b posted though...I have a new project for me and my dad to work on! :)

I was at Home depot the other day, and was thinking the same thing. I must say I am caught up in the lambs wool snuggly aspect of the more expensive ones though!

Hi

You could go to a building center,,,buy a piece of lumber 8 ft X 10" wide and 2 brackets to go underneath. You could even get them to cut it to the length you want. I used them for my cat walks up in their room. You could go to walmart and buy a piece of faux sheep shin to cover it.
