Second, all the people complaining that the legs didn't fit or fell off - you were attaching them the wrong way, or not all the way. They need to snap into place, facing the right direction, and by snap into place I mean actually snap. That isn't easy if you're only using your hands, unfortunately, but don't give up until you hear that snap. I used a mallet to beat down on them, but yeah, eventually they did snap into place, and from that point on it would take

Installation was very easy, if you can call it an installation. It took me a minute to put mine up. The cats immediately gravitated towards it because ours love high places (as most do). The material feels very durable. We have two cats: one is 13.4 pounds and the second is 11.5 pounds. It stays on from them jumping onto it from four or five feet away, as they
My forever humans purchased this structural item for me soon after I came to my forever home as a means to win my approval, as if rescuing me wasn’t enough. They are good humans, and love seeing me spend lots of time in it. I get to watch the stupid squirrels outside the window, chatter at the birdies, and sleep in the sun to my kitty heart's content. I don’t even want to sleep in my humans’ big fluffy cat bed. I think they approve of this although cat fur is the best fur.
Even though you are not a cat, you must be very clever and you’re quite good with your opposable thumbs. I salute you, Kitty Cot Maker.

When my cat takes a hearty leap off, digging his claws in, it actually shoves the scratcher off the mount leaving it precariously angled in such a way my cat can't safely jump back on until I fix it (see photo). This doesn't happen every time, but it's enough that it's bothering me and causing concern.
(For reference my cat is only 9lbs)
Another design flaw is the wires that hang up to the top row of suctions really get in the way of the cat jumping up, and sitting/sleeping up there. They are quite low to the scratcher and not far enough to the sides.
I have not had any issues with the suction cups

BUT, the measurements listed in the product description are wrong and the bed is too wide for the window I bought it for. The description says "The minimum window size needed for this perch is W 24x H 26 inches." Ignore that. Those are the dimensions of the area inside of the PVC frame (which I don't know why you would want/need).
The bed frame is actually
***update - I recently ordered another one of these cat beds after they were back in stock...there have been some changes in the new version. I ordered the sage color both times. The sage cover now has Velcro on both sides of the bottom. I can see how that would be helpful if you needed to remove the cover. I did
Then after all that difficulty, the suction cups wouldn't work where I was hanging it. I'm just dumbfounded. My friends and I are going to try and make something to support the bed for Angel.

I purchased this blindly, because I was not sure if this would fit the window I have, and, maybe I really am blind, I couldn't find the ACTUAL required dimensions listed ANYWHERE. The main reason I am leaving this review
I've owned a cheap $15 single level "Sunny Seat" cat window mount for almost a year and it recently broke (I'm surprised it lasted so long because the entire thing is made of plastic).
Now that I have two cats, I decided to invest in a more expensive window bed with two levels that is made of metal.
I first ordered a very similar double level bed for $45 (screenshot attached) and when it arrived, it looked used, did not come with the suction cups for the windows and there were no instructions in English! I asked Amazon if they could just send me the suction cups separately but their policy does not allow them to; therefor, I will be returning it as soon as I get a chance.
After reading reviews, I ordered two Kitty Sills for $15 less than my previous double level cat bed ($30 each). I
I purchased a second double stack seat on Oct. 7, installed Oct. 9 - by Nov. 8 the nylon straps holding the first tier to the second tier failed (ripped completely in half at the seam.) Contacted K&H for warranty and was advised I would need to pay shipping both ways if I wanted it replaced. Sorta ticked, I just figured we'd use it as a single tier since the top half was still just fine. Today, 11/28, both suction cups holding the top straps to the window have completely failed. Not like they won't stick anymore... no. They ripped in half. The suction cup is still stuck to the window, but the strap and twist mechanism has ripped straight off. I checked our original and the nylon is beginning to rip, suction cups are fine so far.
Our cats are 4lbs, 5lbs,

My cat loves to stand with her back legs on my bed side table and then her front legs on my window to watch everything and everyone outside. However, i am not a fan of her scratching my table. I live in an apartment complex downtown in a major city so she is intrigued 24/7 by everything outside, rain or shine. This perch was perfect for her.
• took only about five minutes to put together
• she loves it
• free toy to entertain her while I put it together
• removable fabric so you can wash it when needed
• suction cups are HUGE (when i measured the window to order it fit perfectly but the suction cup I can only secure one)
• no instructions (also self explanatory, it took a minute to figure out which way to hang the fabric.)

The wire that attaches it to the window is sturdy and thick. It seems like it will stand the test of time against my cats teeth. I have 3 cats under a year old and one two year old cat. There is a lot of energy, and lots of chewing. Immediately I felt at ease that the structure will not be tampered with by their fangs.
I am extremely picky when

I got this as an “exit” for my cats off of the catastophicreation wall I’ve created for them. I love that brand but they are just too expensive! This peice is perfectly priced! I was able to hang it on the wall myself, too, which is amazing because I barely know how to work a drill. I do wish the shelves were a bit larger or the basket a bit larger, as they aren’t going to get used for more than steps on to the wall (vs a lounger), but man, what a great product! I configured it slightly differently than the instructions Bc of my purpose for it. Hope they put out more because I would definitely buy!
Update 11/19/2017.This is by far one of my best purchases on Amazon and it’s still my kitty’s favorite bed! I was able to get rid of the bulky cat tree as soon as it becomes available we are purchasing another for our bedroom.
We now have 2 Big Nose Cat trees one in the bedroom near the windows and the other in the bedroom. The shelves and the hammock can be turned to face which ever way so that Kitty can use them as steps to climb up or down. I also hung some floating shelves below the Big Nose climber that give Kitty more climbing activities. There are lots of very pricey cat climbers for sale but this item is well made and will outlast all of them. So go order one now for your Kitty they will love it !

1. Obvious, but clean the window, put a drop or two of water in the suction cup and let it dry for a good stick.
2. Pillowcases fit the frame really well (with a few cuts) and are machine washable.
3. To get the frame to lay flat when on a window, the top and bottom suction cups need to have almost exactly one frame length (the longest dimension)
The only downside to this product is that the suction is strong enough SO LONG AS you wet the back side a little bit. Meaning, don't just use a clean window and suction it in. IT won't stay on! You have to wet it a little. The first time my cat jumped on it, top half of the suction cup stayed on. The other bottom half wasn't suctioning properly. Lucky I didn't attach it too high so she didn't fall far...

1. Lay the net flat on a table upside down (the side with velcro should be facing up.
2. Slide one SHORT tube through the side that does NOT have the velcro and attach one elbow shaped piece. Make sure the open end of the elbow faces towards the net.
3. Attach one "T" shaped piece to the other end of the short tube. Make sure an open end is facing the black net and the other is facing as if you were to continue the short tube.
4. Slide both LONG tubes

Some people have complained that this perch is too narrow, my response is that maybe there should be a larger version but this is perfect as-is for a small window. Clean the window and the suction cups thoroughly with rubbing alcohol before installing, the suction cups are amazingly strong if you do.
Others have said that the wires that connect to the upper suction cups get in the way of the cat. Yes, at first they did, but both of our boys quickly learned how to maneuver through and they use it all the time. Besides, those wires are there because the perch

There are no cons at this time but should anything negative arise I will post an update pronto. I would highly recommend you follow their instructions to a "T" when prepping both the surface of the glass as well as acclimating the suction cups.
I am absolutely tickled pink that she is using this and as soon as the 2nd bed/mat arrives I will set the other one
- The canvas is thick, sturdy, and taught when suspended across the frame
- The suction cups are strong enough that I trust they won't send a flailing cat down into my desk/coffee/computer.
- There's a little hole in the pull tab on each upper suction cup in case you want to put a

When you open the package, you'll find an alert to make sure both the suction cups and the window glass are clean for maximum suction. I gave all the suction cups and the window a good windexing before I put them up (make sure everything is very dry after cleaning) and the suction is very strong.

Never purchased blindly, everyone need make sure if this would fit the window.
It just has to be installed properly according to the instructions. Clean the window with alcohol and make sure it dry. Soak the suction cups into hot water, clean with alcohol and wait for dry. Choose a place to the hammock and make sure it is level horizontally and vertically.
I've had it up has been weeks of hot weather outside. The cups stayed stuck.I do double check them now and then. I know it need check after several months use.
The only downside is that it is really big, I only can install it on my living room and it blocks my view.
On the other hand, it gives my cat a good view and a sunny seat. Overall I'm glad about it and will buy
