Re: Stop indoor cats escaping through Open windows!

Ours were outdoor moggies-big time-and they did go out after they'd been done but it must have become apparent that things on the out were not as they were and within a few weeks they much preferred to either be indoors or right on the doorstep Btw-hope your on cushion floor-carpet burns on the face-not an easy explanation to give

Re: Stop indoor cats escaping through Open windows!

PMSL, laminate floor so I'm alright! Not that comfy though!

Well I'll just have to wait and see what happens then, they were only done Monday morning. They don't really go further than next door anyway, they just hunt in his bushes for birds all day!

Re: Stop indoor cats escaping through Open windows!

When one of ours got let out after being spayed she promptly got herself stuck on the neighbours roof and we had to ring their door bell and ask if they would mind us sticking a ladder up the side of their house so we could retrieve our potty cat!

They can be sooo embarressing

Thumbs up Re: Stop indoor cats escaping through Open windows!

My girlfriend and I are having the same problem. We are in a ground floor flat, but there are stray cats and ducks in the summer, which our kitty LOVES. I found these forums first and then started fine tuning my search.
For the answer to your prays (and mine) Please visit

Window protection for cats - Open your windows without endangering your cat

They offer standard and custom sizes.
Other than this you may need a DIY solution. Hope this helps!!!

Re: Stop indoor cats escaping through Open windows!

... just had a quick peep at both options. My cats would be out of the window in no time with the so called 'protection' of "Flat Cats". The velcro is no use against crafty cat paws. I think the Flyscreen option that allows one to bolt it down, screwed to the frame is probably more secure.

I think the only bonus to the Flat cats is it's versatility and 'flat pack' design. easy to store. I find a need some extra room for my screens and you need to cut and assemble them yourself, if you don't opt for them to put them together for you. But they are great once they are done! I wonder if you could still put eyelets into the 'flatcat' screens (like at the edge of tarps or shoe lace holes) and then screw them in with a washer and nut attached to the window to make them more secure? I might order one for an experiment. I like to be fairly resourceful and try things out. The idea of the FlatCat screen is great but I know some VERY clever MC, Ocicats, Siamese and Bengals that would have them off in a min! But it would be lovely to be able to just roll them up and put them in a drawer or under the bed. At the moment they are stacked up and in the barn.

Re: Stop indoor cats escaping through Open windows!

We have been looking at catproofing our windows and were looking at using huge press-studs, industrial type ones used on boats and such as being more secure than velcro...

mind you we've settled on fitting mosquito screens to the outside as our windows open inwards
