Question

So some of you may remember that I was having some cat trouble. The cat had one paw that still had clays that was scratching my car. That was taken care of.

 

Now I have another problem same cat. It seems when the cat jumps from the gritty sandy driveway to my car hood he slides about a half inch making very distinct scratch mars about a 1/4 wide. I can not just keep correcting these because I will wear out my CC

 

What are my options,

 

Thing I have thought about are the fallowing.

 

Chili powder around my car to agitate his paws and to stay away. Or on hood

 

This?

Option 1: remove said paw.

Option 2: PC to the claws.:pc:

Option 3: orange peels. I have had good luck with cats that I have had marking their territory in the house. I would put orange peels in the areas where I didn't want the cat. The cat avaoided that area. After a while I removed the peels. Never had the problem again. Perhaps a few well placed orange peels or citrus-based product sprayed in key areas, say on the ground around the car (I wouldn't spray the car with anything). Give it a try. If that fails at least you get more vitimin C in your diet.

 

Edit: great video!!!

Take a trip into a local Petsmart or Petco and see what they suggest. There are sprays and scented things to keep pets away from plants, furniture, etc. so I'm sure there's something that's safe and effective for keeping a cat away from your car.

 

I've also heard that putting loops of masking tape or crinkled up sheets of aluminum foil will discourage the cat from jumping up there -- apparently they don't like getting the tap stuck to their paws or the feel of the foil.
