It's a joke, I'm sure nobody wants to see the poor little pussy cat get hurt.
I suppose I don't find it that funny, as there are so many sick s out there who take it upon themselves to hurt animals. Also having a cat that was treated badly by a previous 'owner' makes me a little more uptight about it.

Not saying the OP is a sick , mind

My cats climb on my car and have never scratched it.
Same here, I've owned many cats over the years, all of which have enjoyed walking around on my cars.

Many years, many cats, many cars, not a single scratch.
Same here, they leave dirty footprints but you'll only scratch the paint if you rub that grit into the paintwork.
Still really annoying though since they only seem to like sitting on my car when it's freshly washed.

OP should squirt said cat with a super soaker a few times when it's on his car.

I have a cat and know cat behaviour fairly well.

I've told all of my neighbours that they can feel free to use a water pistol on it if it's in their garden, sat on their car, etc. A super soaker is fine, cats soon dry off and they don't go back.

Just want to clear something up, I DO NOT want to kill cats thumbup

I like animals and would not hurt any of them, well, maybe Spiders, but they scare the crap out of me frown

I am just very annoyed at all of the footprints on my car, piss all over the car cover and st filled shed. I suppose it could be foxes but I have never seen any around here, whereas I see a lot of cats in and around the estate.

It was a serious question, are there any plug in repelants that work or something that doesn't involve me catching them (in the garage, not catching them in order to dispose of them)?

You could try sprinkling cat pepper around the garage perimeter / edge of the floor.

Some cats ignore it, some really hate it. Try amazon for some.

I doubt it's the cat that's pooing in your shed, they like digging a hole to dump in.

Simple answer is......get a cat!

They will NEVER st in their own garden + if it's hard enough it will scare all the other cats away.

Not sure if these are any good, but probably worth a try if they're starting to do your head in.

Yes they do.
The cats in a safari park might, but neighbourhood mogs, not a cat in hell's chance.

Animal turds in your shed/garage are much more likely to be rats.

Invest in a couple of rat traps and some rat poison as bait.

Cat claws only really come out for fighting. Normally the claws are tucked up inside their paws.

I had a prob with cats and foxes during the night hours and cured it by leaving a "cateye" bicycle light on the bonnet of my car. It's set on flashing and being LED lighting the rechargeable batteries last over 100 hours.

Oooh, I've seen cars flashing away with those things, always wondered why.
