What to do about the neighbor’s cat climbing on my car?

Seriously... it feels like all I can do is get pissed.

Ultrasonic cat repeller - put it near the car, they usually work well at keeping cats away.

After a week or so of that, the same cats will remember and not go near your car even after you stop using it.

My grandpa would just shoot them with BBs because they liked to lay on his lawn chair.

If the owner ever asks you if you know why their dumb cat came across this “horrible inhumane trap” of course say no but then offer them a suggestion like,

“Use your fingers to massage the oil into your cat's fur. Make sure the glue is completely covered with oil. Alternatively, massage peanut butter into your cat's fur to remove the glue. Avoid using eucalyptus, tea tree, or citrus oil to remove the glue since these are toxic to cats.”

The sonic repellent seems like the most reasonable suggestion. I found this one on Home Depot.

Hey Im all for animals and nature and never purposely cause harm to any but I dont stand by while they damage my property. I admit the bb gun is a little harsh for a cat but Id immediately set up non lethal traps and repelents. Id put a stop to it quickly if my property was being damaged though.

Get a dog, Super soaker! Or (probably not very practical) I saw a tv program not long ago where someone got some lion dung from a safari park they worked at and put it where they were getting trouble with the cat, it never came back again! Nor did any other animals you can actually buy similar products such as wolf urine.

Yes, but is it possible that could this cause all of my neighbors’ animals to run away or self-murder? Because that would be amazing!

They are motion activated maybe 10ft range i think.
They are annoying to me the sound. I usually avoid that neighbors yard lol
