Checking Out the Sunny Seat Window Cat Bed

Do you have up or down cats? We happen to have one of each. Jackson prefers to gaze up at household happenings from the floor while Jed prefers to look down on his world from a position of power – usually from the top of the fridge by way of the counter.

Jed is the reason we graciously accepted our latest freebie for review: Sunny Seat, the window mounted cat bed. As seen on TV, this 12 x 22 inch cat bed attaches to glass windows or doors with no tools required and the cover is machine washable.

This is what it looks like out of the box.

PEOPLE THOUGHTS: SIMPLE, EASY, SPACE-SAVING CONSTRUCTION

Jackson Overseas Sunny Seat ConstructionI swear, I look at cat condos every single time I enter PetSmart but I just can’t bring myself to spend the money or give up the household space. Sunny Seat sits out of the way – because I can choose to place it out of the way – and offers my cats a perch without a big purchase.

The Sunny Seat  is easy to put together, as claimed. It took me longer to clean the window I attached it to. Jackson tried to help with directions but I didn’t need them. The tubes snapped together to form the main support, the cover slipped over top, suction cups attached to the window with nylon stings offering support. And that’s it.

WHAT DO THE CATS THINK?

Jed, being the Jedi Skywalker he is, took to it immediately. Contrary to the Sunny Seat name, the sun doesn’t have to shine for this seat to entertain, offering exciting views of the dogs playing in the yard as well as chipmunks and birds frequenting our garden.

We placed our Sunny Seat on the sun porch which has a view of the outdoors as well as the rest of the house. I think Jed appreciates the indoor/outdoor experience without leaving the safety of our home. And, if Jackson ever decides to leave his ground floor domain, this bed can hold both cats without issue.

WATCH SUNNY SEAT IN ACTION

I can’t find a single false claim for this Sunny Seat in the commercial below, although it doesn’t keep Jed off the furniture if the fridge counts. I loved seeing multiple beds demonstrated as climbing stairs. What a great idea! This is something I’d consider for our new summer cottage, a smaller space with less for the cats to do.

    Sucker that I am, we have three cat trees here, plus a modest-sized screened enclosure that the cats get to go out in when I’m home to supervise or at least keep an occasional eye out. However, with three cats in the house, one can never have too many places to have a perch by the window. I’m seriously considering ordering one. Great review!

    • @TuckerCrestieCgcTdi You are so right. One can never have too many cat places. Yesterday, I discovered that moving our window seat from where it had been for weeks to a new location drew even more interest for our cats. It was like they were seeing the world anew. That said, I’m just thrilled with the versatility now too!

    Now there is something I would buy, if I had cats. How clever is this?!

    We had one of these when I was a teenager – my sister’s cat Tiger loved it. She spent a lot of time hanging out there – once it did fall from the window after she had gained some weight, but it wasn’t nearly as sturdy-looking as this one. After that we had to rig it a bit to hold her extra girth. 🙂

    • @wantmorepuppies Oh boy. Poor Tiger. I can just picture the scene. We guess our guys now weight about 25 pounds combined and they’ve been on it at the same time without issue. I was impressed with the 50 pounds of bricks in the video, but they were gently placed. I wondered if the added force of jumping on or off would cause slippage, but there hasn’t been a budge.

        @Kim Clune She was none the worse for the wear, but definitely indignant! I imagine that they’ve improved the product in the last 15 years too. 🙂

  4. We have a cat tree in our bedroom . . it helps (sometimes) save us from having 3 cats in bed with us! Zuni loves to hang out there all day and look out the window . .but she gets pretty upset when someone steals it from her! We have had a couple of window seats, but they have always had to be screwed in to the window frame . .this looks like it is easier to use and could be easily moved! Cool!!

    • @julesmelfi Pets in bed, oh boy. We can’t have any bed smaller than a king for that very reason. It’s too crowded! … Especially with a Newf who prefers to sleep perpendicular in the middle. I still may get a cat tree when we finish deconstruction of the bedroom, but until then, the cats always have the man cave. 🙂

  5. Every time I see this commercial you just know the thing won’t work out as advertised because cats refuse to cooperate with man-made objects. The thing is held up by 2 cords. A cat would jump up on that seat and start batting those cords like a ukelele, ping ping ping, the suckers would pop off the glass, and ricochet the cat across the room! Meeeow!

    • @jasonwonline20 Actually, my cats rub against the nylon supports, floss their teeth on them, and never have they fallen off. In fact, both my cats love their perch and sit there in the sun every chance they get. It might be helpful for you to try a product before writing about all the ways it doesn’t work. I don’t support products that don’t work, and this one does an amazing job with our two big cats.

      • @Kim Clune@jasonwonline20 Do you know if this can me moved and installed at a different window , say when I move or would it just fall? Anyone?

  6. can this be moved from one window to another – say if I move. Or would it not stick? Anyone tried this?

  8. I definitely want to order the Sunny Seat but I want to make sure I get the Two-for-One offer that is in the video. When I go to SuunySeat.com, I am transferred to the Oster website to place my order. Can u tell me the coupon code (or whatever) to get the special Two-for-One offer?
    Thanks.

    • I’m sorry I can’t help. I don’t work for Sunny Seat, I just like the product their publicist sent me to review.

      I’ve purchased two more through Amazon with free shipping which is probably comparable in price with the “As Seen on TV” two-for-one deal with their ridiculously exorbitant shipping and handling fees.

      Hope you find a deal that works for you!

    I would love to order one. Do you ahve any agents / sup[pliers in South Africa that I can purchase one from?

  10. We have 6 kitties (3 are fosters). They all get along. The heaviest of the six weighs 18 pounds; the others weigh between 11 and 13-1/2 pounds. If the big boy, Puss~n~Boots (18 pounds) would be on the window seat and another kitty jumped up to join him, would the seat support him and say, the 11 pound kitty? Before I consider buying this I need to know max. weight capacity of the window seat.
