Protecting Window Sills from Pet Scratches

Go to a hardware store and purchase plastic stair protectors. Turn the protectors upside down with the little plastic tips are sticking up, and place on window sill.

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.

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?

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.

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!

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?

Yay! I found a solution. Yep, I tried many DIY ways to keep my wonderful Lab/Greyhound mix from scratching at the window base as I come home and leave every day. It's called Sillshield. Bought it here: gadgetsgo.com/Dog-puppy-cat-claw-damage-protector... I've had it now for a couple of weeks and it works great.
