I just wanted to show off what the boys and I concocted as we wait for the snow to arrive in here in the northeast.
Our old window setup used to look like this:
As you can see, even a month ago Harvey's almost as big as Crumb... and their window perch was getting smaller by the second! It's just one of those 3 level cat trees, and I got it for Crumb when he was a baby. We don't have a lot of room in our 2br railroad, but the boys love to sit by the back window, because it opens up to the backyards of all the houses on our block. The front window has cars and people, both of which make Crumb nervous. So I decided to do a little rearranging and adding, with the help of Ikea...
Functional AND spacious! 4 types of recycling, a bathmat, and then the perch on top. As long as Crumb doesn't get brave enough to try to jump over the coatrack to the top of the fridge (which he's already contemplated), it's amazing! They can either sit on the mat together, or the perch gives them a whole new backyard to watch. I had thought about getting rid of the perch altogether, but when I tried to move it by the front door, Crumb sat on top of it and wouldn't move. Luckily, DB suggested the stacking! We have to move the red carpeted one to use the stove, but that's only a couple times a week at best.
Do any of you have a great setup for window viewing? I'm thinking of getting a normal window perch for the front window in the bedroom, since the TV tray we've been using is growing similarly too small.
Any experience with these?
