I don't mean that you go press your face in the window, but just glance at the window as you go by, not stopping to stare. Especially if there is a light on and the curtains opened. Do you ever go by and say what a nice big tv, or what a pretty picture on the wall. Or you can even see what show they are watching. I guess just human nature to glance in. Probably even without realizing you are doing it, totally unintentional. One of my friends across the street sometimes tells me that she saw one of us passing by the window or watching tv. She's funny and it is good natured. We kid around a lot. But it does remind me that I need to close my curtains. LOL!

Hi. realan. That is right! Close your windows! I have glanced but when I notice myself looking, I will quickly turn my face. I don't want the person that is in the house to see me looking. To me that is very impolite. I try to keep my windows closed at all times. I don't want anyone looking in my home.

In some coutries there are no curtains, but kind of metallic closure, and by night it happens to see people that forget to close them and go around their kitchen almost naked...

I don't understand why people that live near a street leave their curtains wide open, with the tv going or eating dinner. I could see doing that if there was no street there, but ....its like they're inviting people. "hey come look at us." You can't help but turn and look. If i don't look i'm wondering to myself.."are they looking out the window watching me walk down the street?" "am I their dinner entertainment?"

yep, I'm guilty of that. Most humans are curious, not just cats, and we want to see what's going on. Isn't that why traffic slows down when someone gets a ticket or there's an accident? most of th time there's nothing to see. but once my husband was out walking and saw a couple doing it on th kitchen counter!

Of course - especially if you see something going on its not natural to see where the movement is so its not the fact that its a window - its the fact that there is movement going on. Trust me I need to learn to start shutting my window. I know my parents constantly get on me while I'm home because I have a tendency not to and they think the neighbors are watching me get dressed. It doesn't necessarily bother me, but it probably would if one of them actually said something about it.
