An in-door cat needs stimulation and a window to look out from is always something I try to encourage. I know, with certain homes, it’s difficult, especially in Central London, with lack of space for a climbing frame or rented properties not allowing built structures so I have found the perfect solution for you and your cat! It’s called The Sunny Seat. Unfortunately not sold in the UK but what a great solution. No marks on the wall, no space on the floor taken up.

I am going to buy 2 myself and hope they take very large cats! To encourage your cat to use it you may want to try a heated pet pad ;-). There are plenty to choose from. 

Treat your in-door cat well and you will be rewarded with love and companionship.

    Hi Anita,

    How are you and your furbabies?

    We are looking at Sunny Seats to go up out french doors in our lounge (we’ve been wondering for ages just how we could “catify” our home some more but have always come up against the “oh yeah, the doors” issue!) UNTIL we spotted these little beauties!

    The only question I have (that hopefully you may be able to answer) is:
    Are these seats big enough / sturdy enough for LARGE cats?

    You’ve met our Maine Coon, Monster and Maine Coon x Ragdoll, Gremlin who are now at 8lbs and 10lbs at just over a year old and it does worry me that, although most of the Sunny Seats do state that they hold 20-50lbs (depending on where you look) but do not seem to be very long or wide (only 12in x 8.8in that I’ve found).

    So, what do you and your kitties think of them and are they well sized and strong enough for the bigger fluffs? If so, which ones and where would you recommend purchasing from?


    Kitty & David (+ Monster, Gremlin & Phantom)
