    Hi All,
    Wondering if anybody has found a good way to get their cat to stay off their car? Slash jumps on one then jumps to the next one!
    I've done a bit of reading on t'interweb and all the suggestions are about keeping cats away for a specific radius.
    I don't want to keep Slash away, I just want to keep him off the cars!
    Any advice greatfully received as it is really starting to get to my OH.
    Thanks

    I know people sometimes have an issue about cats jumping on cars because they "scratch" the car. I can't see how a cat can scratch a car: it's not as if they rake their claws over the paint surface. I mean, birds poop on cars, rain falls on cars, stones clip cars and shopping trolleys bump them???? :confused::confused:

    When ours were outdoor cats they only ever slept on the neighbours cars (I think its because they were black, so they were warmer) I never managed to stop them doing it and the neighbours werent happy:eek:.

    I just love the pic :D My Scamp has never been a car sitter but other cats use my car to jump on to the fence next to it, never bothered me luckily and never had any damage :)

    Why? :confused1: I have cats,foxes,birds all using my car as a launch pad and or/for target practice.The only thing that it causes is the flippin' alarm to go off at daft'o'clock :incazzato::lol::lol:
     
  7. That particular dog loves the cars, thinkshe has it in her little head that is she is on or in the car then there is more chance of her being taken when you go out!

    My aviator shows her
    and here's another of her on it!!

    Smart move on her part then :D She's a lovely looking dog by the way and it looks like she takes up most of the bonnet.

    He does manage to scratch the car and also has the dirtiest paws in the world which is why I would prefer he doesn't do it.
    Thanks anyway.
