In spring, not only us humans, but also many cats are magically drawn outdoors, often through even the smallest fissures. That's why special care should be taken with tilting windows!
Tilted windows tempt cats to want to climb outside. The pussycats often slip off the smooth window frame and can't pull their hind legs. The animals panic and the more they pedal and try to free themselves, the more they are pushed into the narrow crevice by their own body weight - these accidents are incredibly painful and often even fatal.
This is how you can take precautions: If you don't want to do without tilted windows, you should buy special barrier grids from specialist retailers or open the tilting window gap with a jammed "disarming" terry towel.
