I'm a newbie
We have a couple of Bengal kittens who travel in a crate in our motorhome.

They are house cats after our last cat was knocked down, so are always indoors or on harnesses and leads.

Last time out I nearly had a heart attack when, after letting them out of their crate at a break, I found one of them sitting at the driver's window.

Which was fully open......

Turns out that due to the window switches being live for a while after the ignition is switched off, the kittens paw on the switch was enough to open the window.

I thought about how to stop this happening, and ended up buying stuff called Sugru from Amazon, though it's widely available.

It's like a permanent setting Blutac, I should have probably sprayed the switches with polish to act as a release, but, after setting they cleaned up ok.

The blobs can be pulled out easily enough by humans, but not, do far, naughty kittens.

I hope this helps someone!

On most cars, the delayed window live is cut when one of the front doors opens.
