Q: I'm moving to an apartment in Inwood with original 1937 casement windows. I'm going to be on a high floor, so I need to find some way to protect my cat from falling or jumping out. Nobody has offered a viable solution, because no one seems to understand that there's no frame in which to put a screen. These windows open out using the lever (see larger picture below). Other people in the building have cats but I have not been able to get in contact with any of them. Suggestions?
