If you have a cat, you already notice he is probably attracted to the window or glass door like a moth to a flame. Not all cats can or should be outdoor cats, and for that reason, providing areas for your cat to easily watch the great outdoors from inside will rock his world. This post is all about cat window perch ideas that are pretty much dream-worthy.
Cat window perches are an excellent option for cats who like to nap in the sun. These perches come in a variety of sizes and shapes, so you’ll be able to find the perfect one for your cat. They’re designed to be mounted to any window and have a comfortable, elevated platform with a railing around the edge, so your cat can safely observe the world outside.
If your cat likes to nap in sun puddles while dreaming of catching mice, he might love a window perch. Window perches are great for felines who love to observe insects and all the happenings outside, or simply crash in the sunshine.
I rounded up the best cat window perches on the market, from cat ledges for windows to penthouse cat window perches. Let’s pounce in and get started!
Certainly! Here’s a table similar to the previous one, but with the “Type” column replaced by a “Style” column:
|Macrame Cat Window Perch
|Stylish, Cozy, Secure
|Double Decker Cat Window Perch
|Spacious, Elevated, Sturdy
|Cat Window Hammock
|Relaxing, Durable, Breathable
|Foldable Window Hammock
|Space-saving, Portable, Adjustable
|Multi-Purpose Window Cat Hammock
|Functional, Adaptable, Secure
In this updated table, the first column lists the product names, while the second column contains descriptive words that highlight the qualities and benefits of each product. The new “Style” column specifies the design style associated with each product, such as Bohemian, Modern, Contemporary, Minimalist, and Versatile.
This information will be helpful for cat lovers who want to create feline-friendly spaces that align with their preferred design aesthetics.

Your cat will love to feel cozy and safe inside his mini-mansion while observing the weather and elements outside. This indoor cat perch makes a great gift for any cat lover or cat!

If you’re looking for a window perch for multiple cats, the penthouse cat window perch is the perfect choice. This perch is designed to fit multiple cats and has a spacious platform with a railing around the edge, so all of your cats can safely sit and observe the world outside.

Cat Window Hammock
Cat window shelves are the perfect way to give your cat the perfect view of the outside world. These shelves come in a variety of styles and sizes and can be mounted to any window. They have a comfortable, raised platform with a railing around the edge, so your cat can safely sit and observe the world outside. Some cat window shelves also feature a hammock, so your cat can relax in comfort and take a nap.
A true window hammock, your feline can definitely crash in this droopy, yet sturdy perch window shelf. I especially like there is NO drilling, yet the suction cups are so big they hold up to 50 lbs! That is a lot of cat!
Foldable Window Hammock
“The cat window seat can be foldable and can’t take up space when not in use. Folds up against the window pane when you want to close the blinds, and won’t affect your daily life, very convenient. The dimension of the large size is 24.4”x11.8”x6.9”, large enough for all-age cats. ✨✨Note: Suitable for windows with a minimum width of 27.7””
Multi-Purpose Window Cat Hammock
A really neat and multi-purpose cat hammock that can be used as a hammock style perch or a platform style. This one is also offered on Amazon, but since it does not have any reviews yet, I would wait a little bit longer to get some verifiable feedback.
