Possibly even give them their own high place like a cat tree or similar but that is accessible safely and enclosed at the top, that might reduce the inclination to explore dodgier areas!
    These are all good ideas!

    I have made Benji safe steps to access the areas he likes climbing to, and he is very good at getting off off them too. I made sure that the “steps” are covered with pieces of carpet (glued down) so he’s got a good grip
