Am fed up with cats sliding up and down my cars with muddy $%^%^%^ paws. Are any of these high pitch things any use to keep them away? I don't want our dog to hear it, or local birds (feathered kind) for that matter, such the moggie. Bit of a pain having to shell out just to keep the paintwork ok, but thats life. Someone did say that cats can get accustomed to the noise after a while and lessen its effectiveness - anyone had any experience with these gadgets??

Hi

What you need is a cat to come and walk around your garden, marking it as theirs the the other cats will be more warey untill it rains! I have a cat near me that uses the mini Sidewalk as a scratching pole, chased it off a few times, but it only has three legs, feel a bit guilty!

Cheers

you should reduce the leg count to two then you won't have much of a problem Very Happy

problem is when they slide down old (enamel?) paintwork on the Devon, it does scratch it, as its not as resilient as modern 2 pack or whatever they use now

If you left one of my border terriers in there the cat wouldn't come back, that for sure, but the dog may cause a little damage himself!! He is very exciteable!

Rick, your best bet is to get a cat of your own, preferably a semi-feral neutered female.

We used to have one and she never went on the cars, or even let anything into her territory, and that even included the neighbours dogs, a number of which had to be destroyed after encountering her.

Why not refinish your motors with 2K instead of cellulose? I had to get that in, didn't I? Hehehe!

Rick, did you not see the little reply regarding paint history? If you did, then you should realise that the Devon paint is not original if its cellulose! Laughing

Pity it was me that referred to it as cellulose, when I should have known better! Crying or Very sad

Why cant I add smilies?
