Live in A High Rise? Own A Cat? Keep Your Windows Closed!

Check all windows and screens and make sure that they are sturdy and secure. Cats can easily tear through loose screens. I would recommend installing claw proof screens. They are available in most home improvement stores. If you have adjustable screens, make sure that they are tightly wedged into the window frame so your cat cannot push it through. Childhood window guards are not secure for cats. Cats can easily slip through them. Make sure that your window shades pull strings are not a loop. Cut the string to make two strings so your cat cannot get caught in the loop. Keep your cat safe, give him plenty of  cat treats and cat toys, play with him frequently and he’ll be your best friend for many years!
