My FIV cats Sam and Lucy do miss being able to go outdoors. I know this because they both go to the side door and meow daily. We have an enclosed sun porch with many windows and both cats enjoy this room they love to lie in the sun, play with their toys and also watch the birds in the yard. However, they get bored easily and go to the side door to meow and beg me to let them go outdoors.

My husband suggested that we buy the cats a window bird feeder. He thought that the FIV cats would find this entertaining and that it would be fun for humans too.
We found a window bird feeder with a mirror that was flush with the window. This mirror would allow the cats to watch the birds without frightening them. The birds could eat the seed peacefully, they would have no idea that a cat was behind the mirror watching their every move.
Both my husband and I liked the Coveside Panoramic In-house Window Bird Feeder with Mirrored Panel because the fit would be snug against my window. This feeder then could be viewed from our living room and we could watch the birds through the one-way see-through mirror panel.
Before buying the feeder we did check to verified customer reviews. There were many positive comments. We learned that the feeder was quality made from wood and came already assembled. Installation as easy as it can be. One commenter said “ I opened the window, slid the bird feeder in place, and shut the window. That's it! It looks like a custom installation. It fits perfectly in the window and is a very attractive addition to the room”
Today we ordered the window bird feeder because we feel it will be wonderful entertainment for our FIV cats that can no longer go outdoors.
