One difference between France and the United States, from my observations, is that French humans tend to have drapes on their windows, while in America, I saw a lot of blinds.
In any case, what the humans do not realize is that when drapes or blinds are closed, it’s like humans wanting to watch TV while the TV is still in its box: we can’t see anything!
My human learned the hard way with her drapes back in France…
Yes, that’s me who did that =^.^=
And of course, I also had to find a solution for blinds when we were in New York! But guess what? She didn’t like my solution! The nerve!
MomKatt always raises the blinds in the living room on the side of the house facing the bird feeder. She does it each AM because she knows we want to watch!

It is a heinous crime to prevent kittehs from full CATV ;-) all our windows have desks, chairs, tables or stools offering the full gamut of tasty views… We learnt the lesson the hard way too :D

We kitties prefer NO window covers at all! I don’t know why humans just won’t get on the program…

Well I say that whatever it takes to get some appropriate bird TV time – should be done!! Neither blinds, nor shades, nor curtains shall keep us from our appointed entertainment right Texas????!!!!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy

That’s why we see so many homes with blinds that have a hole cut out so the resident kitty or doggie can look out. We just go behind the blinds. All of our blinds are wood so the pawrents won’t cut holes in them for us. We’ve made a pair of curtains look like that, Texas. They weren’t pretty ones, however, like those.

LOL Tex we have something in common…..I have ruined the antique lace ones in one of our sitting room windows. She was none too pleased. She told anyone who would listen…. well it was a ripping good yarn. Have marvellous Monday.

You come live with me for a while OK?? I have not blinds or drapes on my windows. Have no neighbors yet to see in, only cats to see out and they do love the windows to see out of!!!
Heureusement que ici il n’y a pas de rideaux devant les fenêtres ! En hiver mes humains ils descendent les volets roulants la nuit, pour garder de la chaleur. Nat à Chat elle a installé exprès un meuble avec un coussin, devant une petite fenêtre sans volets, pour que je puisse regarder dehors si me me lève tôt, et que c’est pas l’heure d’aller dehors.
Tu étais rigolo avec ton passage à travers le store Texas. Suis pas sure que ton humaine elle aimait.

OMC, that hole is impressive. There is only one solution, open curtains and pull blinds up. Hope for the best at night!

We have sliding glass doors without covers and windows down to the floor also without covers so we can always see what’s going on! It’s our job to keep everyone safe from pesky squirrels and birds.

Our mom has learned to not put anything on some windows, or she raises the blinds…because we’ve been known to ruin a few. ;)

We don’t know why humans try to turn off Birdie TV when we still want to watch it. You’d think they’d learn! At least you knew how to improvise!

You need those vertical blinds like my peeps have. They said Nicky totalled their regular blinds back at the old house.
Cathy Keisha recently posted…Hello December!
All of our horizontal blinds are raised a few inches so we can go under them. Otherwise we go right through. We like the vertical blinds best, though. We can open them whenever we want without getting yelled at for breaking anything.

Shoot, Texas! I think those curtains look just purrfect. It bet that nice hole was at the perfect height for you too, wasn’t it?
You know the best thing about the blinds? They pretty sturdy, but they *DO* break after a while. As me how I know. And then it’s a whole lot easier to look through them.

I can say from a dog’s point of view and from my cats, blinds and/or curtains are a terrible thing. Why would anyone want to cover up a view of the outdoors?

Oh Texas you are so funny looking through the blinds and the lace curtains are too too funny. I know your Mom won’t appreciate that I think it is funny but it is!
Luvluvluv your NYC solution Texas! We have pull up shades so we are never blocked from our Outdoor TV stations. Paw pats, Savvy
