Since cats are curious in nature, they often enjoy climbing up to windows that have inviting views, but they also sometimes fall. When you live in a high-rise building, the chances of a cat getting seriously injured or even dying because of a fall from a window are even greater. Their “nine lives” may not help them, so it’s better be safe than sorry.
Whether you have a cat at home that has fallen off a window or you are simply concerned with this possibility, you can learn some tips on how to prevent this kind of accident. Some simple things you can do include installing window screens or mesh, opening only the top portion of your windows if possible, making sure your windows are closed before leaving home, paying close attention to cats when they are on a balcony, and being sure to close windows before throwing toys, especially balls, to your pet cat.
