We all know how much cats like to curl up in a sunny spot by the window. Well, the new Sunny Seat cat bed makes it really easy to set-up the perfect window perch for kitty. The folks at Sunny Seat sent us one to test, and I was a bit hesitant at first. You see, the bed mounts to a glass window or door using suction cups, which made me skeptical, but once I took the bed out of the package and saw the serious industrial suction cups, my mind was set at ease. Then I saw the video on their website that shows 50 lbs. of bricks stacked on the Sunny Seat and that proved it. This thing is sturdy!
The Sunny Seat has a strong plastic tube frame covered with a durable canvas cover that can be machine washed. The frame and cover mount to any smooth glass surface with four giant suction cups and two cables attached to two metal springs. It’s incredibly easy to install and the cats took to it right away. This is an excellent solution for apartment dwellers who want to install a cat perch without drilling into the walls.
There are of course plenty of warnings in the instructions, like not to use the Sunny Seat on antique glass or textured glass that might not allow the suction cups to attach securely. I attached it on the sliding glass door to the catio and it’s holding perfectly.
You may have seen the Sunny Seat for sale on TV. It is also available online for just $19.99 plus shipping & handling, and in typical “as seen on TV” fashion, there’s a “But wait, there’s more!” offer: buy one, get one free, plus you get two free laser cat toys. What a deal!
