Warning for cat owners

Me again with our 2016 View 24v.
Just found out from friends who also have a View, that they discovered a potential danger for cats . There is an unseen gap/ space under the refrigerator big enough for a small cat to get through and hide in. They couldn't locate their cat until they spotted it coming out from under the fridge.
We travel with cats too and my husband made a barrier with some wire mesh and fiberboard to block it off. There are cables and wires down there. Who knows what else.
We just wanted to pass this on.
Happy trails all.

I have a 2013 Sunstar 26HE and ran into a similar issue when our cat was a kitten. He was small enough to climb in the dash from the driver's side area where the brake and gas pedals are. Needless to say, it took us a while to find him.

At one point he was also small enough to crawl under the bathroom door. Was the funniest thing to watch...

Our cat found out how to hide under the bed in our 2016 Adventurer. Had to use some foam to block it off. Also, used foam to block off the dash on the passenger side. Looked like the cat could get up into the dash if she wanted.

Our cats want to climb under the bed in our 2014 Sightseer 35G. They have found ways from underneath by sliding past the panels, crawling alongside the bottom of the nightstand and even when the bed is upright sneaking behind the where the bed articulates and under. Pool noodles work great to block their routes. One cat had figured out how to slide the little door on the screen door. He jumped through the opening twice on us before we were able to find a good fix. At 20lbs, it amazed us he was able to pull that off! We now use magnets - one on each side of the metal part of the door - to create enough resistance that he is unable to slide it open yet make it still not a hassle for us. We travel with 5 cats and a dog.

Cats require a safe space to go to, especially when they feel stressed. It's fine to block them from areas you don't want them in, but make sure to create a safe space for them somewhere else.
