  • Important things to think about:
  • Don’t attach the Kitty Cot to broken or cracked glass you think might be faulty.
  • When you put the Kitty Cot on a window that has a chair or couch in front of it, make sure it is well above head height so when you sit down you don’t hit your head on it… I’ve tried this and hit the back of my head… It hurts!
  • Don’t put the Kitty Cot so high up that you’ll fall attaching it or your cat gets hurt trying to get up or down.
  • Never ever put a small child, big child or yourself in the Kitty Cot. If we made it for humans, we would have named it the “Kiddy Cot”. It’s for domestic cats not people!
  • If your other pets like and want to use the Kitty Cot, they should be the size of a domestic cat only.
  • Don’t put candles on the Kitty Cot or expose it to flames or fire.
  • The Kitty Cot is designed for one or two average size domestic cats, not three and not ten.
  • Inspect the Kitty Cot often and make sure the suction cups are well secured.
  • Don’t put the Kitty Cot over sharp, breakable or expensive objects.
  • Kitty Cots attach with suction cups and will attach to smooth non-porous surfaces inside and outside.
  • You can wipe the Kitty Cot clean easily with a moist sponge.
  • Put your cat’s favorite blanket on the Kitty Cot to create a soft bed.
  • Hang a light cat toy from the top suction for fun or hang a bird feeder outside for your cat to watch.
  • Hang a Kitty Cot on all the windows of your house and give them away as gifts!

8 Tips on Using Suction Cups
The care and use of suction cups is very simple.

  1. Make sure the suction cup is clean and free from debris.
  2. If the suction cup needs to be cleaned, wash in warm soapy water then dry gently with a lint-free cloth.
  3. Clean the surface you are applying the suction cup to. It won’t adhere well to a dirty surface.
  4. To enhance suction, a tiny dab of Vaseline or cooking oil may be rubbed on the rim of the cup.
  5. Press the cup all the way down, against the surface.
  6. The suction cup may need to be “burped” periodically by pressing down on it to remove any air that may have seeped in.
  7. Temperature and humidity variations may make a suction cup lose its grip. If bonded above 40 degrees Fahrenheit the cup will provide the most reliable service from -22 degrees to 120 degrees Fahrenheit .
  8. To remove the cup, simply pull up on the release tab to break the suction.

Disclaimer – We use what we think are absolutely the best USA Made Suction Cups for the Kitty Cot made by Adams Manufacturing. That said, the nature of suction cups in general is that they occasionally disengage from glass and non-porous surfaces. The best thing you can do as the owner of your Kitty Cot(s) is to daily check and make sure that the suction cups are well secured to the glass. It is up to you to check the suction cups regularly and replace them if they have extensive wear. We accept no responsibility for injuries or damage to windows, pets, animals, people, places and things. If you are concerned about mounting the Kitty Cot(s) on your window(s) for any reason even window warranties, then we recommend you buy or use a different cat perch that does not mount on windows with suction cups. Thanks, and enjoy!
