My cat just loves to look out the window (especially at night). I have screens in the windows for safety. My problem is that my window sill is narrow and he barely fits his fat butt on it. I would like to extend my window sill by maybe a few inches. Any ideas how this can be done? Thanks.

HI, just go to pet co. They have shelves that hook onto the windowsill, actually on top of the sill. They have brackets that press against the wall below and the seat is 8 inches wide and the width of a regular single window. I have two for Jerry.

To make a cat window sill perch, cut a board as long as your window sill, and as wide as you want the perch to be. Take a piece of carpet, cover it, and staple excess under the board. Put 2 shelf supports under the perch screwing it to the bottom of the perch, and the other side of it to the wall. Make sure the screws do not go through the board all the way, or it will scratch kitty. To clean just roll a lint remover over it. Kitty will be sitting in the window waiting for you to come home and greet you.
