A cat window perch offers everything your cat or kitten prefers–a great view of the goings-on outside and a cozy spot off the floor.

After all, cats love (almost) nothing more than to lay in front of a sunny window for a snooze!

We scoured the market to find the highest-quality cat window perch reviews and have listed the best of them below.

We listed pros and cons for each cat perch, along with links if you decide to look into each one more thoroughly before you purchase.

CD Pets Large Padded Cat Window Perch

Cat window perch and shelfWith the Large Padded Cat Window Perch you get what you pay for with convenience and strength.

This cat window perch comes with a 1-inch comfort foam pad and carpeted supports. It is so sturdy, cats can jump on it without feeling any movement.

It is removed from the window easily, simply by unclipping. No Velcro or screws are needed for installation.

The carpeted supports may not be the easiest things to look at, but they can become a makeshift scratching post if the perch is not placed too high—one more appropriate scratching surface is a good thing!

Update: CD Pets now offers an Extra Large Cat Shelf for only $10 more on Amazon.

Why We Like It

  • Extremely stable: clips to the track of the window itself
  • Easily removable since no hardware is required
  • Holds over 20 lbs
  • Deep enough for cats that like to sprawl
