sound of cursing  

After a traumatic weekend wherein Leonard didn't come home after busting out in the middle of the night and I had to put up posters, he was a grounded kitty. I carefully didn't open any window more than an inch and a half, because no screen can hold him, and managed to keep him in for two nights. But last night he *pulled the upper window down*.

The annoying thing is I heard the thump and came running in, but I thought he had just bumped the lower window shut.

I don't think there's anyway to keep him in, not in an unairconditioned apartment.

Would you consider caging him?

If she cages him, I'm going to move farther away. The yowls I'm sure that cat would produce might flatten several city blocks in their intensity/volume.

There's been some pretty unhappy howling the last couple of nights, yeah.

Caging him would tilt my safety/quality of life equation the wrong way; I don't actually mind

Argh, kitten on keyboard.

I don't actually mind him going out, as long as he comes back in at night. I'm hoping that when the other cats are removed from the equation he'll be less freaked.

While I hesitate to suggest such a thing, if a cat wears a collar, some manner of rope may be attached to said collar...

It's not nearly so bad as caging, though the yowl factor may be similar.

Hmm. I would say that a rope would be worse than a cage from a safety point of view and from an effectiveness viewpoint. If the cat is wearing a collar, it should be a break-away collage and thus wouldn't work for restraining in the first place. And if not, you have to worry about the cat getting tangled and tripped by the rope.

Still, high yowling factor either way.
