We recently remodeled our kitchen, and put a window in over the sink. The window looks into the cat room which is a small living room. Well, Gel keeps jumping through the window into the main house. The only thing that worked is running twine back and forth in the window. That discouraged her, but looked awful in my new kitchen. So my husband put a "drop shelf" on their side of the window. It was designed to drop down when any weight was put on it. It went from side to side and out about 3 feet. Gel clean jumped it. I don't know how she does it. She is no spring chicken. Luckily, we put in shutters that can be closed. I want to keep them open and be able to talk to the cats and see out their window which overlooks the back yard. That was the whole idea of a window. Does anyone have any suggestions? This is kind of an off beat question, probably not too many have had this problem. I know there are electric strips you can buy through Foster and Smith, but I honestly don't think this would stop her. I dearly love my 7 cats, but I have an orphan kitty, Beeba, who lives in the main area of our home. And they really do like their own area. It is very comforatable with windows overlooking the woods and nice perches and even a real cat tree that my husband made out of a maple tree that fell in an ice storm. If I can't get any answers here, my next stop will be NASA!lol Thanks so much for any thoughts. This is a tough one.
