Cats & Balconies

6 Replies

I need ideas on how to stop cats wanting to throw themselves off balconies! Mine has a real obsession with getting dangerously close to the edge and it is very unnerving for me. Any ideas welcomed!

Strong glue around the edge of the balcony?

Seriously though, I don't think you need worry unless your cat is an inexperienced kitten. Cats are pretty good at judging distances that are safe for them to jump, your moggie is probably just curious.

It's just that i have heard of two cats that "fell" off balconies and broke legs and I am scared mine is going to do the same!

Have you thought of putting up a kind of meshing or wicker barrier against the balcony so he doesn't go through the barriers?

Or even plexiglass so the cat can still enjoy watching the birds?

All good ideas. I wonder where I can get a length of plexiglass from. Any ideas?

I bet one of the big Bricos would have it.
