Once your pet puts their paws on the little plastic pieces, they will soon realize that it makes them uncomfortable, and will stop using the windowsill to look out the window.
This works great and truly does save on windowsills.

Gee, I wouldn't want to be your pet! Cats especially love to look out the windows, if they're indoor only, as all cats should be. Why not cover the window sill with shelf liner or something similar that they can lie on?
I agree with everyone else, why take one of the few joys they have away from them. Put a nice box, chair or ledge up for them. Let them look out the window!
Our kitties are indoor kitties and they just love to look out the windows. We have padded shelves so they can lay and look out. I hope that at least they have one or two windows to look out of.
Ahh! Couldn't you find a way to cover the windowsill without taking their piece of "outside " from them. Maybe tap a piece of styrofoam to the window sill?
I have two Poms that are constantly scratching the front window sills when they get excited. Is there something I can buy to put on the windowsills for protection?

What can I use on a bay window sill to protect it from scratches from my dog's nails. There has to be something out there. My local hardware store as no idea what vinyl moldings are, so that was a dead end. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
You might even be able to scrounge some from a building site. (04/01/2009)
Providing another way for the dog to see outside will also be helpful. if there's a low window or another spot where they can see out it would be easier to train them to go to the other spot to look out than to stop looking out altogether. (04/05/2009)
