Cat-removal from truck

Ok, Went down to my truck this morning, and found cat prints up the hood, up the windshield, and down my tounneau cover. So short of leaving out a bowl of anti-freeze or target practice (its my landladys cat) are there any ways of keeping the cat off my truck?

Scare the **** outta that cat every time it gets on your hood. Jus run out and scare the ****ing **** outta it. Not the usual "ahh i found you kittie aren't you suprised!" I mean the 10 minute chase where you act like you're gonna rip the cat in half. Bare your teeth and yell/bark a bunch too!

And if you choose this method, have a friend video tape it so we can all have a good laugh.

moron you dont do that while it is on the truck, that is the worst thing, the cat will scratch the paint to hell and back, and that is prolly why doesnt want the cat on his truck because of the scratches.


btw, maybe a cover or something? if the truck is warm i dought you can stop the cat from getting on it.

atleast you dont have my situation, last winter i walked out side and to my suprise i had two beagles sitting on my hood. imagine the scratches and paw prints from that.

I'd get my paintball gun. It "shouldn't" hurt the truck if you miss, but its enough to scare the kitty away and not kill it

I had a kitten crawl up between the radiator and the fan in my Volvo once. It's very lucky it was making noise when I went to leave for work in the morning.

I have strays wandering around my neighborhood AND Kara's, one morning I found kitty tracks on the trunk of the miata and sand on the passenger side floor! (parked with top down under carport.) I've found a cat IN my garage on several occasions when I'm working with the door open and come in to check the internet as well. There has to be some type of cat-repellant.. I'm afraid one of them will pee in the interior of the Miata!

PUNT IT !!! AND VIDEO TAPE IT!!! Or ask politely if your landlady could keep track of her kitty, explain that she climbs on your pride and joy but dont mention what will happen to her kitty if she doesnt keep track of it. And if you find it on your hood again it's time to break out the anit-freeze or go sniper with the .22 LR.
