LIVE Cat TV for Your Cat: The WooPet! Window Bird Feeder
We have reviewed many WooPet! products, including their cat litter mats (that I love!) and also their cat food placemats (which my sister and I also love). So when we were emailing back and forth at the end of 2016, I asked WooPet! if they had any new products coming to the market in 2017 that we could review. They mentioned a few and also told me about their Window Bird Feeder – that it wasn’t a new product, but rather an existing one. I immediately thought of cats when I saw it – which they hadn’t thought about. I saw it as LIVE cat TV.
You can see in the arrival video below how easy it was to install. I installed it first with my dad – who even brought out a level to make sure it was alright. And then I installed it “eyeing it” – as I thought most people would. I like to try and review items like most people would go about using them. The “eyeing it” installation is the one that lasted for the 2 months that we reviewed it.

How It Held Up to Temperature Change
We installed it around January 20, 2017. And I filmed the final review video on March 19, 2017. During the course of those two months, we had all sorts of weather – from ice and snow to hot. Our temperature ranges were -15F (-26C) to 85F (29 C). It never failed – stayed stuck to the window the entire time. I did choose to put it on a window at my parents’ house for two reasons – their house was built in 1997, mine was built in 1940. My windows are original – so are theirs. I trusted their 1997 windows to hold up much better than my 1940 ones. My mom was raised by an avid birder – in fact, she grew up in a house that had an indoor aviary. So I thought my mom would be a good person to know the birds behavior, etc.
It did take a few days for the birds to start using it – but my mom said, “Don’t worry, Jenny, the birds will find it.” And so they did.
My mom said she saw all kinds of birds – but mostly cardinals and robins.
There were squirrels that came to get seed as well – but as someone commented on our YouTube arrival video – cats would love to watch squirrels too! And after all, I am reviewing this as a cat TV.
Yes, as my mom states in the final review video – there was a bit of a bird poop problem. So you will just want to consider that wherever you install this. For example, if it’s installed on a window that’s not on your patio, perhaps bird poop is not an issue.
A reviewer on Amazon mentioned that she put this bird feeder on the window that her cat’s cat tree faces – so that while lounging on his cat tree, the kitty could watch the birdies – “I bought this for my cat so he can sit on his tower and watch the birds. He loves it!! At first he ran over every time, and now has learned to sit quietly and they will come. I’m not sure what I enjoy more, the birds or my cat lol!”
The WooPet! Window Bird Feeder is made of acrylic, which makes it aestheitcally pleasing. The seed tray is removable and features a 3-compartment design. There are drainage holes in 2 of the 3 compartments to help keep the seeds dry. The middle compartment can be used for water or for seeds. My mom used all 3 compartments for seeds because she has a rather large bird bath on her patio as it is.
WooPet! Window Bird Feeder Dimensions:
- 4.1 x 11.8 x 5.1 inches
- 1.4 pounds
SUPER SUCTION CUPS – Each of their suction cups can bear up to 8 lb. weight
Overall, I think this is a great bird feeder and I love that it doubles as LIVE cat TV for your kitty – especially for those kitties that are home alone all day who might get bored.

We received the WooPet! Window Bird Feeder for review from the manufacturer and also asked that they pay a small review fee. Receiving the free product and the review fee did not influence this honest post.
