"I live in an apartment that doesn't allow cats so I have to keep them away from the windows."
Now, I am a very patient person but this really ticks me off. I told them that cats that are kept in apartments NEED to look out of windows. It is hard enough to keep cats confined but if you don't allow them to lie in the sun, watch the birds, the bugs, the traffic and all that amuses them from the safety of a closed window they will go crazy. "MOVE!" First off, It bothers me that pet-owners look at apartments that don't allow cats. Then they bring them anyway and expect the cat to follow the silly 'don'ts' that are put on them. Don't sit in windows, don't meow, don't run around too much and make noise. "For crying out loud, find a place that allows animals and be done with it. There are plenty of apartments that especially allows cats. Consider their needs and keep looking."
