Best Overall

Cats love a window hammock. It combines two of their favorite things: snooping outside and sleeping in the sun. With this window hammock, you can set up the perfect perch for your fur baby. Installation couldn’t be easier, and best of all, this can be easily moved around the house. Wherever you have a window or smooth surface, you can set this hammock up. Because this perch can hold up to 40lbs, it accommodates up to two kitties. Of course, you may have to break up some fights as they try and claim the window throne. If that happens, another window hammock should appease them.

Pros:

  • The mesh bed is constructed from durable material that’s made to last. Even cats that like to chew and scratch a lot will have a hard time ruining this bed.
  • Because of its four suction cups, you can place this hammock across the frame of a window. For example, double and French-paned windows can still support it.

Cons:

  • The strings may be distracting for young kittens who are still in training.

You might think that setting up a window hammock is tough, but it couldn’t be easier. With Pupagree’s window-mounted perch, you simply assemble the bed and affix it to your window with the four extra-large suction cups. Not only that, it’s simple to remove and relocate as well. We especially love how the size of this cat hammock can easily hold one or two cats — up to 40lbs total. The bed itself is made of a durable mesh material and a small soft mat is included as well. You can also add your own soft bedding. But be forewarned: you might never get your cat down from this spot.

Pros:

  • We found the installation to be fairly stress free. It should only take around 10 minutes.
  • We were pleased to learn that the mesh bedding resists scratches and bites. It should last you a long while.

Cons:

  • Because of the extra-wide frame, this may not fit on smaller windows.

If you want a cat hammock with a slim profile on your window, we’ve got just the item for you. This clever device uses suction cups and wires underneath the wooden bed and frame to support up to 40lbs. Because of this, there aren’t unsightly wires hanging on your window.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I securely attach a suction-cup window hammock?

With most suction-cup perches, you’ll want to first soak the suction cups in steaming water to soften them. Then, make sure that the window is free of dirt and oil. When you stick the suction cups on, make sure the window itself is dry. After that, use a little bit of moisture on the cups for a secure connection.

How can I get my cat to use the window hammock?

If your kitty already has a favorite bed or cloth, try adding it on top of the existing bed. You can also try using their favorite toy or treat to entice them onto the platform.
