CAT SAFETY

We cannot emphasize the importance of CAT SAFETY enough. Sadly, every week, cats fall from height from unsecured balconies or windows. The “lucky ones” may survive, yet end up at the vets with broken bones and sometimes life long disabilities. Many of them, however, succumb to internal injuries. Preventing such accidents is so easily done and today so many option exist that are also aesthetically acceptable – from invisible grilles, to professional meshing to DIY solutions. There is something for every household and budget. 

Don’t think you can watch your cat that it won’t jump or that cats are smart enough not to jump – or that they “land on their feet without issues”. Cats can jump higher than you expect and may chase after a bird at such speed, that by the time you notice it’s too late. 

Project LUNI will check on your meshing/safety solutions for your windows, balcony, gates and landed property before adoption. We suggest to put everything in place BEFORE applying for kittens. 

Invisible Grilles

Invisible Grilles are acceptable by many properties and well established. They need to be no more than 2 inches wide. However, if they are the only protector and easily accessible, they may need to be even closer and require vertical enforcement so a cat cannot force itself through.
