As any pet owner can tell you, cats often love to climb and perch up on various shelves. In some cases, they’re drawn to areas that they probably shouldn’t be and have a tendency to get all over some surfaces. Rather than let this happen, you can invest in cat perches that will provide a convenient place for them to hang out and live a happy feline existence.
At Moore Pet Supplies, we’ve made sure to put together a collection of excellent cat perches that can help ensure your cat always has a nice place to rest.
Cat Perch Basic Information
Some pet owners don’t have the space to incorporate large extravagant cat trees for their cats. Let’s face it, some models are huge. However, there are still products that are made which can give you the simplistic design and use of a cat thee. A cat perch is exactly how it sounds. It’s a perch designed to give your cat a bird’s eye view of its surroundings. Cats have a natural tendency to climb structures. This is why cats like to climb into trees. Although going down is harder than going up.
Cat Window Perch
Most cat perches are designed to be installed or attached to window sill areas. This gives the cat usually a bird’s eye view of the outside area around the home and makes them feel safe and comfortable because they always know what’s going on outside.
Some, like the Kitty Sill, are even shaped in just the right way so you can put them right near a window. Most cats enjoy resting in the warm sunlight that comes out of a window in the late afternoon, which is another reason they’ll likely appreciate this feature.
Cat Perch For Wall
Wall Steps or platforms are a great way to expand a cat’s living space, especially if you are living in a smaller space. The Moore Pet Wall Walks are a great product that can be purchased to customize the area you have. They are great products if you only use one or two…or several to create a cat’s playground…and it takes no floor space!
A second design to cat perches is one featured as floor models that raise the cat off the ground. These perches are usually a little higher in quality compared to the window versions because the units need to be sturdy to set upright. Also, they fit into the “furniture” aspect of home decor as well. Some models even feature two perches to accommodate multiple cats.
Thermo kitty sill seats are particularly designed for this kind of use. They stay nice and warm, which has made them popular with owners of cats who might experience some sort of discomfort otherwise. By ensuring that their cats are always positioned on a comfortable 102° platform, these owners have made a significant contribution to the overall health and welfare of their animals.
Both types of perches feature a pretty simple design. Some perches feature orthopedic foaming and a simple simulated sheepskin cover to give it durability and texture. Also, the covers are removable making for easy cleaning keeping it looking like new. Many window seal units can be moved from window to window and don’t require a permanent install. This gives you flexibility on where you want to put the perch and when. This becomes helpful in the season changes if you want the cat facing a certain side of the house during the day in the winter versus possibly the summer.
Keep in mind that there are other options that might not necessarily actually provide a place for your cat so much as something that your cat might appreciate. An easy-mount window diner, for instance, provides sufficient space for enough food that your cat could eat while sticking around in another perch. A window pod, by contrast, offersyour cat an area to curl up in.
Cat Perches that are Best for Your Cat
Something as simple as a cat sill easy window mount could be perfect for your animal, especially if you happen to be the owner of a particularly lazy cat who would just love to recline in front of a window for hours on end. If this sounds like something that your animal might be interested in, then you could certainly reap the benefits of such a gadget from the moment you attach it to a window with the included set of suction cups.
