The things we do for love

Kitty love, that is. Anyone with indoor kitties knows how much they enjoy looking out the window and ours are welcome to use almost all the windows in the house for viewing. All but the kitchen window, but there's not much to see out of it anyway.

My husband decided that he would build them a window perch in the basement that would be all theirs. It turned out to be a great success. The setup includes a ramp with treads for them to walk up to their observation platform safely.

The platform seats 3 pretty comfortably. On this day there must have been something in the backyard that was interesting. There's lots of trees out back with plenty of birds, squirrels and and occasional lizard that sits on the other side of the window.

The platform has sides so that they can sleep comfortably without falling off. Here's Big Maggie lounging~its her favorite spot to hang out.

Here's two of my girls, Angel and Maggie taking an afternoon snooze. Snooze away kitties, you know you are so good at it!
