How to keep the cat off the car!

Recommended Posts

Detailing the car is catnip. The fuzzy felines love the mirror smooth warm car and will scratch their way to perch on top. Unfortunately the beautifully smooth mirror finish does not allow them to bound up gracefully. Scratching, sliping, sliding, their way to the top of the car is one of the most depressing sights one can see after hours of washing and polishing.

Ruling out pellet guns, hoses, expensive motion detectors, fox/wolf urine (they are hard to catch and they don't cooporate on demand) I think that I have a solution that does not involve any of these and protects the environment through the reduced consumption of burlap.

A large 2 by 2 feet square of HD aluminum foil held in place by four magnets in the roof does the trick. Cats hate aluminum foil for some reason. The sparkley refection, the strange noise and feel if they step on it does the trick. An optional dusting of chili pepper lets them smell the warning way before they even come close since they hate that even more. In addition you now have additional protection from bird droppings. If any one asks why the foil is there you can always hint that it is a radar corner reflector to foil speed traps. More seriously, your neighbors are going to ask "what is that" and you can politely say that it is there to keep cats off the car without bringing it up yourself.

Let me know if it works for you as well as it has for me.
