Rand Paul's neighbor would know what to do.

Or, get a dog.

Thanks for the kind words, sauce. I appreciate it. As difficult and terrible as is to do, I think I’m going to be even more vigilant and the next time that I catch him in the act I’m going to hit the panic button. Hopefully that will give him enough of a heart attack that he doesn’t want to do it again.

I figure it will probably scratch my hood, but nothing that I can’t buff out. It’s already scratched from where it has gotten up there the two times since the jewel polish and jetseal. The entire rest of the car is completely swirl and hologram free except where the cat was chilling. If I have to correct it anyway, I would rather only have to do it once.

oh, man. Some of you are just being sarcastic and silly, I know. Sadly, some aren't.
Are they over reacting - yep. Not even strong enough. keep things in perspective.

How old are you people??? A cat sits on your car, oh my GODDDD! A dog pisses on your tires just wet-shined.....a mockingbird just crapped on that freshly shined hood. AAAAACK!!! Quick, kill the damn things, my day is ruined, I'm in OCD overload, my shiny car is destroyed....

Do y'all have any REAL problems? Heart attack? Stroke? Job loss? Home foreclosure? Nasty divorce? I can't imagine how y'all would react if something REALLY life-changing smacked you upside your heads.

Can't even have any fun anymore without someone saying you sexually assaulted their cat.

Lol @ resorting to name calling. It is an over reaction to a normal person, that being said a lot of enthusiasts are pretty OCD about their car, I am too to a certain extent. I find it shocking though that those complaining don't get a cover or park in a garage.

Sometimes its inconvenient or not really an option.

I have firsthand experience, the sound thing does work. Just put it in front of your car when you come home at night so it doesn't annoy people all day.

LOL.....thanks......
I'll be the nominee on the Independent, ''quack'' ticket
Seriously though.....lately, at least here in the Miami area, there have been some really horrific things done to pets/animals, bad enough that stories (and gross pictures) aired on the 6pm news. Cats/dogs bludgeoned/stabbed/burned, for no reason. One cat was found (and shown) nailed to a wooden fence. A pitbull terrier, stabbed multiple times, stuffed in a suitcase, and left to die, in an alley. Police found it, still alive. County veterinarians tried to save the dog, but it died. It just makes my blood boil.

I know some guys here are just having fun stirring the pot and spouting off........
The rest of you - leave the wildlife alone.

i used to care about the appearance of my car and then i realized i have absolutely no control over the weather or what people/animals do so i just keep it the best i can but i dont get butthurt every-time something walks on it when im parked outside on the street.

I even have a garage but i just am sometimes to lazy to wait for the door to open and just park in the drive way.

I remember this story. It was closer to my neck of the woods than Miami.
Unfortunately the dog died after a few surgery... If they ever find the person/persons that did this i would prefer mob justice over the slap on the wrist they will get for animal cruelty.

Warning semi-graphic photo.

Hey, lilonespaz.........thanks for posting the pic; yes, that's the one, poor guy. And the nailed cat I saw was pretty bad, ABC news briefly pictured it but then took it down, it was a bit too much. I'd love to be the one to pass sentence on people that do this....

You can talk about it all day but some people wont understand the pain until they physically see it. Everybody likes to be a tough guy on the net but i just dont see why anyone would be cruel to an animal especially as something as trivial as walking on their car.

The only humane thing i saw was the sonic things than make a high pitched noise to keep the cats and dogs out of your property.

True, and those make sense. Something's wrong with people nowadays, though....everyone seems to want to go to extremes, using guns/knives/poisons, whatever lethal weapon, for something minor.

When I was a kid, I'd throw water out of a window onto some squalling cats that had gotten into a fight. It was hilarious watching how the cats reacted, seeing how they hate water, I laughed my ass off. But, water doesn't injure them, and after a couple soakings, they stayed away.

I have plenty of real problems to deal with, which exactly why I wouldn't want to have to deal with a stupid cat scratching my car. and they do scratch the car, I have seen my old neighbor's beemer hood all scratched up from his own cat. It would sit on the hood all the time because it was warm I think.. If it happens one time its not a big deal, but everyday to have a cat sitting on your car that you put more money that its worth into, can turn into a big deal real quick in my book. I was being sarcastic about some things, but to say its not a big deal and that we need to find some "real" problems to care about is arrogant. You spend all day at work making multi-million dollar decisions that affect millions of people, then when you get home you finally make it to the recliner just to look out side and see a cat scratching away at your hood. And this is not something he should worry about? Give me a break. I guess some people just take more pride in their shit that others. Like I said if it was a one time thing then it wouldn't be worth fussing over, but constantly is another beast all together IMO.
