What Are The Top Cat-Proof Window Treatments In Southern California?

March 04, 2022

Not many window coverings can survive a playful, mischievous cat. Cats climb and pull down drapes, bend blinds or gnaw on, and tear window shades with their claws. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you think you’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in Southern California, try plantation shutters. Their long-lasting materials and construction avoid damage by even the most ferocious felines. Here are even more reasons why interior shutters are the perfect window treatments for cats in Southern California.


Your Cat Can’t Rip Solid Louvered Shutters

All cats love to bite and claw things. Despite the number of scratching posts you give them, your cat will still attack objects around the house. If that description fits your fur baby, you should get some cat-proof window treatments in your Southern California home. Both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood shutters are hard and durable. Your cat can’t bend or shred a shutter. And if your especially destructive cat does leave scratches on a shutter louver, you can have that piece repaired rather than buying a completely new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Won’t Sway, Tangle, Or Dangle

If you live with cats, you know how they adore batting at loose fabric, such as your fabric window shades and blinds. Even better when they have a pull string to bite and pull. Then there are long curtains to scale and hide in. Unfortunately, your kitty’s games can ruin flimsy window coverings.

To prevent your cat from treating your window treatments as its personal ropes course, use interior shutters. Nothing on the treatment hangs down or sways when batted at. They simply don’t tempt cats how fabric window treatments and blinds do. Chances are, your cat will just overlook them and go back to her own toys. Their elegant simplicity makes shutters easy for you to use and incorporate into your interior design too.

Louvered Shutters Let Your Feline Look Outside

Interior shutters might not sound fun for inquisitive, lively cats, but your kitty will enjoy peeking out through the shutter louvers. Tilt the louvers open, and Whiskers can watch the cars and wildlifed during the day while you have partial privacy. If she wants to sunbathe, tilt the louvers to redirect sunlight at the ground and keep it away from your face. Or you can open a single shutter panel to let your kitty stretch out on the window sill for a full view.

Louvered Shutters Make Cleaning Easy

Living with a cat leads to lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be difficult to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your Southern California cat-proof window treatments such as interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that only needs to be wiped down with a duster to remove cat hair and dander. And both high-quality faux-wood Polywood® shutters and hardwood shutters are moisture-resistant, so you won’t damage the finish if you use a wet cloth to clean off tougher muddy paw prints.
