I'd keep a pitbull in a basket next to the car.

Finely  ground  pepper or  chillie powder . Have used  it, it  does work.

Yeah you have to catch 'em to rub it in their eyes though. Daiso the Japanese shop sells tablets for 60 baht has a smell cats hate, seems to work a bit.

I'd just shoot the buggers, but by the time of night that they climb up there and after a few beers I would probably shoot the paintwork rather than the offending cat.

 

I am not vindictive, they probably do not understand revenge or retribution so killing them the day after is pretty much pointless and will not teach their friends anything.

 

Yes, in the long term it will "FIX" the problem, but I would expect that  after 6 or 7 cats disappear mysteriously, my wife, or someone might finger me as a suspect. And here in the La La Land Of Lunacy and Morons, I would probably end up with more jail time for shooting a cat than for raping and murdering foreign tourists on an island run by [email protected]!

 

I could always put a few sheets of the Thai Flypaper on the bonnet, just for laughs! If you have ever seen one of these fleabag cats with a sheet of that stuff stuck on their <deleted> it is hilarious! But knowing my luck it would end up stuck to the damn paint!

I love your thinking! It is getting enough coverage to stop them avoiding the trap... I need something that electrocutes them when they get within a metre of the car. I still reckon a nerve poison like Paraquat is the answer, it will save on the car cleaning and the bills for feeding them too.

If your cats are dirty, lousy and/or covered in fleas, then it seems like the simplest solution is that you should all hop into a bath together. Make sure to really get that shampoo in, and then you can all take turns with the lice comb.

A flaming post dreagg8ing in off topic politics removed.

 

OP I have same problem (though a less fancy car and I do like cats -- but still, don't want them leaving paw prints all over the car)

 

I have found no solution other than a  car cover. They still go up on it but that way no paw prints.

 

I am un clear from those suggesting chili etc where exactly one would put it. Don't want chili powder on the car anymore than cat paw prints, in fact less....

In my case it was an issue  with  tom cats  spraying into the air  vents A Vet  explained that cats will  "mark"  territory on the  highest upright  place which happens to be the front windscreen usually. Same as dogs  marking the  wheels .

A reasonably liberal sprinkling of  pepper  powder on the  bonnet over several causes enough discomfort  to them  to  ignore the territory.

Understand that one, but it gets even worse when they start fighting. They start spraying liquid <deleted> at each other during their fight or flight and it lands on everything. Personally I am not a fan of having liquidized cat <deleted> all over my car or motorbike seats...Tends to put the ladies off if you are out for the night and your car or bike stinks of cat <deleted>.

 

The <deleted> spraying is terrible too, but not as an offensive smell as the liquid <deleted>!

An electric "fence" is very effective  for dogs which  pee on wheels. BUt  cats  tend to leap onto a  vehicle  without  touching  it from the ground...hence  no effect from electric  impulse.

Unless you were to  lay  two  separated polarity mats  on the bonnet ?
