I made a kitty throne

I had this window perch, it was very cheap at garden ridge but I had a hard time getting it on the window. It shifted once when someone jumped on it, and I guess that someone spread the word, because it hadn't been touched since.

Anyway, I took all the mounting stuff off the bottom and set it on an old dresser, and now it's popular.

This was last night:


And this morning:


Everyone wants a turn:

It's all about location, LOL! I often advise someone who is disappointed that their cat hasn't used a new bed or tower to move it somewhere else and try again.

I'm sure your cats are happy that you figured this out for them!

When I had Zenobi I bought her a bed which she immediately took charge of. Then she didn't use it and preferred to sleep on the bed in the second bedroom. I took the bed in there wondering if she'd prefer that. She got quite angry and I put it back where it had been before.

Well that's different. She'd already given it her stamp of approval where it was. Just because she wasn't using it for a little while didn't mean it needed to be moved, as you found out.

I'm talking about things that are new to the cats, or in the case of the OP, something the cats had a bad experience with, so they don't trust it any more.

My cat Tugs used his bed when it was on top of my mini-fridge in my college apartment... ever since I moved (over 3 years now) he's refused to use it! He'd rather lay in/on a cardboard box or on the floor... go figure! lol

You know they have been trying to tell you about this for months. You just think it was a brilliant idea on your part (which it was, actually). Glad that everyone is happy
