1 Hour

What cat doesn't like to look out the window or take a nap in the sun? I made this basket perch for my cat, Sadie, to get a good view of the springtime birds from our bedroom window. For the complete tutorial - stop by my blog:

    Just did this wonderful project. Redoing a room and this has made the room look so big. Found it maybe easier to attach platform first. The attach to ledge. My plywood scrap was a little to thin but worked. Did not need to drill screws stuck up a little and secured basket. Will be doing this for living room next. Thanks for a quick and wonderful idea.

    Great idea, I love it, but I'd be afraid my boys would try to climb the ropes
