My cat likes to look out the window. He normally jumps up on my nightstand, but knocks everything of when he jumps up there. So I built this stand/bed for my cat. It has a old blanket on top of it, so it also can be used as a bed for a cat. Its made out of 3/4’’ Pine, and 1’ wood screws to hold everything together. It is screwed into the wall right under the window, it also has braces, to hold the top level. It’s a really simple project that you can build in a hour, or two.

Thanks for reading!

Hee, Hee….. of my cat’s (5 of them not counting my wife, Cat), none of them has the attention span of a migrating hummingbird. Each wants the place another is sleeping and will sit for hours glaring until the one sleeping gets up.. then they don’t want that spot because they haven’t eaten in the last 12 minutes.

I built them a Kitty condo which one may or may not use. The others ignore it even though it has dangly stuff to play with, a scratching post, a nice bed and towers 4’ in the air.

Nice Shelf bed for you cat. Would you believe I just made a window bed for out cat too! I made it about a week ago. I didn’t post it here on LJ’s. It’s just a simple extension to the window sill. Here is the one I made. I just put a few short screws from the bottom up.
