Cat napper haven
It is a well known fact that indoor cats tend to be healthier and live longer than outdoor cats. A cat in its natural environment loves to spend hours basking in the sunshine, napping and observing its surroundings. An indoor cat, on the other hand, is usually deprived of the opportunity to indulge in its favorite pastime. Please note that I mentioned the word “usually.” The reason for this is that some enterprising cat parents install a cat window perch to enable their pets to connect with their environment.
Try fixing a perch to the window with the best view in your home. You’ll find that it soon will become your pet’s favorite spot. The perch allows your pet to leisurely enjoy the warmth of the sun and to watch the activities outside from the secure confines of your home.
If you live in an apartment where the owner will not permit you to drill screws into the walls, you can opt for a sturdy cat window perch that can fixed by clamps, suction cups or Velcro. Another option is to buy a stand-alone perch that can be moved as you please.
Window perches are available in different designs. A heated perch helps to keep your cat warm during the colder months or provides relief to your senior pet while hooded ones provide them with shade when the sun gets too hot. Orthopedic perches help to alleviate the pain experienced by arthritic pets. Preferably buy a window perch with a removable cover and choose one that complements your home décor.
The next time you find your pet trying desperately to catch a glimpse of the outside world, remember that a cat window perch will be the perfect gift to make your cat happy. The perch will keep the cat occupied and facilitate in preventing behavioral problems that may arise due to boredom.
