Allegra’s World: new window perch

cat_window_perch

If you’ve read our blog for a while or follow us on Facebook, you’ve seen lots of pictures of me and Ruby on our window perch. It’s one of my favorite places to hang out, whether it’s for watching the world go by outside the window, or for a nice long snooze.

Last week, something bad happened to my window perch: Mom found a hole in it! It started out as a tiny little hole, and neither Mom nor I worried much about it, but it got a little bigger every day, and pretty soon, I could stick my hole paw through it. That’s when Mom decided we needed to get a new perch.

I wasn’t all that sure I wanted a new one. After all, I, and all the kitties who came before me, had molded it into a perfect hammock shape, as you can see in this photo. But Mom said that the hole could turn into a hazard. I guess that’s one of those big words humans like to use when they’re worried that something bad might happen to us kitties. Like we’d be silly enough to get our head stuck in that hole. Mom really worries too much.Continue Reading

Cat Window Perches

Every time I post a photo of Allegra or Ruby on one of their window perches, I get several questions about where I got them, and the question always makes me smile.

The reason for the smile? The perches are ancient, and whenever I answer it, it makes me remember all the cats that have enjoyed them before Allegra and Ruby. I bought two of the perches for Feebee in the late 1980’s.  One is in my bedroom, one in my office. They require no tools for mounting, they attach to the window sill with a velcro strip. My window sills are very narrow, about two inches wide, and it’s enough to hold the perches securely. Amber was the heaviest of my cats, and even at 13 pounds, the perches held up to daily use.

Allegra and Ruby love their perches, as have all the cats that came before them. From napping to sunbathing to front and back yard watching, I don’t think there’s been a single day when one or both perches have been in use for part of the day.

Unfortunately, the perch we have, which used to be sold by Petco, is no longer available.

Here is a similar one available from Amazon:

Wouldn’t your kitty love a window perch like Allegra’s and Ruby’s – well, almost like Allegra’s and Ruby’s?
