    where/which

    I came the window, from where/which I saw two cats were playing with each other.

    Is either where and which applicable there?

    Both are possible.

    Thank you, bhaisahab. I have checked my original sentence again and suddenly I became not sure If I used the I saw clause correctly.

    Another question, if allowed:
    I came to the window, from where/which I saw two cats (were) playing with each other.

    I know the sentence would be perfectly correct without the 'were'. But is it still correct with the 'were'?

    It's OK with or without.
