Window Perches for Your Kitty to Sit Pretty

What’s better than lying in a sun-drenched spot, watching the world go by? Not much, if you’re a cat. That’s why window perches are so popular with our feline friends.

Enriching a cat’s environment by offering perches to sleep on, objects to climb and things to watch provides him both mental and physical benefits. And, happily, there are a number of options, so one is sure to work in your home.
