Question Looking for vertical blinds at least 108 inches wide

I have a large front window about 9 feet wide. I am looking for vertical blinds big enough to fit. Any suggestions? I want to replace the curtains, which the cat is climbing.

You can get any size custom made if you are willing to pay the price.
The home improvement stores have special ordering for that.

Cats can climb the blinds too.

Yeah, that size is definitely a custom job and yes, it won't be cheap. You'll probably get the best bargain at the home improvement stores but it won't be the best quality, if that doesn't matter to you. The other thing is vertical blinds are dated, if that matters to you.

Are there other good solutions that are sturdy or cat-proof besides vertical blinds?

I'm curious as well.
Is there anything as perfect as vertical blinds that can go from full-dark to completely out of the way on huge windows & doorwalls?

Well yes, there's blackout lined Ripplefold panels. Stackback to practically nothing and works on a traverse system. But they're also custom and pricey.
I think he's looking for an alternative that's readymade and less expensive, that's cat proof and does what verticals do.

I Googled "blackout lined Ripplefold panels" and the images that came back looked like what I have on my doorwall--fabric zig-zagging around plastic verticals hanging from a traverse.

I thought these were also called "vertical blinds". Shows what little I know about home dec. Nice to know I'm still in style.

No, there's no verticals involved. They're just fabric curtains that have a snap tape sewn to the top and are hung from a track system that forms a ripple effect.
Here's a pic I found online (courtesy of plumridge.com):
