For millions of cat owners around the world, creating the best possible environment for their furry friends to relax, feel comfortable, stay visually stimulated, and be entertained during the day is a priority. What can I say? We love our cats, and they’ll always be family. If this is precisely what you want for Kitty, then I have something that will sweep you off your feet—the Kitty Cot Original, also dubbed the ‘World’s best cat window perch.’ In this article, I’m going to show you why this beautiful handmade cat window perch is worth every single penny.
The Kitty Cot Original is a well-crafted cat window perch designed to attach to your windows, mirrors, and non-porous surfaces. Sounds pretty cool, right? The Kitty Cot Original was specifically designed for cat owners whose windows don’t have a sill so that they can easily attach the window perch directly to any non-porous surface. If your window has a sill, then you can take a look at the PurrchPerfect cat window perch.
Kitty Cot Original cat perch’s remarkable ability to attach to any surface is made possible thanks to its patented Giant Suction Cups manufactured right in the United States. Each cup is engineered to hold 12 pounds of weight each, and the Kitty Cot should be able to carry a 25-pound cat without breaking a sweat. This heavy lifting ability is also made possible because of its stainless steel support cables that hold the plastic-coated water-resistant nylon mesh platform.
Kitty Cot & Deluxe
There are two models of Kitty Cot Original; Kitty Cot and Kitty Cot Deluxe. The Kitty Cot is surrounded at the vertexes by high-quality pipes and fittings also made in the US. On the other hand, the Kitty Cot Deluxe features a lightweight 1/4″ steel rod for the frame. Another difference is that the Kitty Cot Deluxe allows you to unclip the wires from the metal clips on the top suction cups to let the unit hang down. This way you can take the blinds or shades down at night if needed. To put the perch back on, simply hook the wires back to the suctions cups for your cat to use the Kitty Cot Deluxe. Altogether, the Kitty Cot Original window perch is easy to install and clean with soap and water without causing any damage.
How It Works
The mechanism behind the Kitty Cot Original is simple. The device works by harnessing the power of physics via its patented Giant Suction Cups. A low-pressure region is created inside the suction area when these cups are pressed on a smooth surface. The higher atmospheric pressure outside the cup then keeps the cups glued to the flat surface. The stainless steel support cables are attached via nickel-plated snap hooks to the nylon mesh platform that holds your cat and its bedding material. This ingenious design is so effective that it can support about 25 pounds of weight.
How to Install
The Kitty Cot cat window perch comes in 4 different sizes to fit various window sizes and personal preferences:
- The Large size that measures 25.5 inches wide and 14 inches deep.
- The medium size that measures 22.5 inches wide and 14 inches deep.
- The small size that measures 19.5 inches wide and 14 inches deep.
- Kitty Cot Deluxe has a unique size that measures 25.5 inches wide and 12 deep.
Note that these widths are measured from the outside edges of the suction cups. The best part is that the unit does not require any tools to install. Here’s how to install your Kitty Cot Original window perch on your windows:
- The first step is to attach cylindrical PVC shims on the two suction cups that fit into the rear of the nylon mesh platform. These shims will ensure the giant cups fits nicely into the hole. With the Deluxe model, the suction cups come already attached at the bottom part so you don’t need to do this step.
- Once set, locate the portion of the window or any non-porous surface where you want to install the Kitty Cot Original and push the suction cups against the window to keep the nylon mesh platform firmly fixed against the surface.
- For structural support, extend the other two giant suction cups with the stainless steel cables attached above the platform and push firmly against the window.
- You can lay your cat’s favorite blanket on the platform to make it even more comfortable.
