@cupcakebride2013:  We have drapes that can tie at the sides. I try to keep them open during the day so he can sit on the sill. Sometimes he tries to claw at them – to get my attention at 4 AM or because he’s trying to get up on the sill- but we’re working on a system. He’s only 8 months.

Ohhhh we went through this phase. We have wooden blinds, I don’t really know the proper term. He liked to bat at me through the slats and play with strings and try to crawl through them… I didn’t change anything, just kept our bedroom ones up with the strings tucked away so he wouldn’t bug us while sleeping. We also have blackout curtains in our room do we could shut out the light but leave the distraction put away.

We have horizontal blinds that we hate, so we keep them up and put up curtains (sailcloth). I know our leasing office offered to put up vertical blinds so that the cats could get in the windows without destroying the blinds, but I hate those, too.

My baby is the saaaaaame way. My solution was this, I have the blinds pulled up just enough that he can see out the window, but not enough that people can see into my bedroom from outside. Then, I took the string and kind of weaved it in between the slats up top; Murphy will leave it alone if it is too hard for him to get to. Seems to be working! I also will spray water (not at him, but near him), the mist is enough of a deterrent if he won’t listen to me. Good luck!
