    Your feline knows that her ancestors were worshipped as goddesses in ancient Egypt. No wonder she gives you the side-eye when you expect her to curl up just anywhere, like some run-of-the-mill mammal. Build your domestic deity a place in the sun with a window seat that lets her scale new heights, settles in, and dream of the good old days.

    The Perfect Spot

    After choosing the best window cat perch for your fur baby, now you need to find the most optimal place to put it. You want to choose a spot with the most sun and outside action.

    I have mine facing the backyard where there are lots of tall trees and birds flying pretty close to the window. The fire escape is also close and that’s where the squirrels like to hang out. Abby goes crazy! You can even add a bird feeder outside the winder your their cat can watch birds.
