I worked for a fabrication shop that was inundated with feral cats. You will not win this battle. Car cover, or get a place with a garage, or buy a car with damaged paint and stop caring. Once the neighbors cat gets the drift, another will takes it's place and if not, the raccoons will come around, or possums, or any other critter looking for warmth off that hood.

What helped: Planting rosemary all over the back easement behind the shop seemed to actually help a lot. Cats hate the smell, that and lemon juice. He also installed a PVC pipe on a hose with 5 motion sensor sprinklers attached. Cats walk by, they beep a few times then start spraying.. this sucked on windy nights because the cats would trigger the sprinklers and everything tarped would get water blown on it. They just learned to avoid the sprinklers. Same would go for your car on windy nights. The sound frequency pest deterrents would work, but they got used to it after a few days and would return. Someone brought up you need a variable one to keep changing the frequencies to keep them away for good.

Good luck. Owner spent thousands on bushes, traps, pest control, city reporting, didn't matter. I bet if I roll by there today I can find a few furries to pet.

Directly targeting the neighbors cat with a trap or something will lead you down a path of angry neighbors, and possible fines or jail time depending on how froggy you get. Some cities take cats super serious and I know in California if you kill a neighbors cat and are caught it can be a 5 figure fine. Hell, where I live if you kill a seagull it's over a grand in fines.

It's just a cat, you should just get a car cover if you're that anal about it. It's not gonna damage anything unless you make it spaz out.

Also, you guys saying to harm or kill an animal/someone's pet over something that is barely even a nuisance to a normal person is pretty fucked up.

I would fear that the car cover would scratch it. Also, I have a gravel driveway so the paw prints are actually gravel dust.

I never claimed to be a “normal” person. I don’t have issues, I have a fucking subscription. I am irrationally territorial. That even extend to animals. I identify that it is irrational, but that doesn’t make it any less real. I wouldn’t actually kill or abuse the cat. Although the reason for not killing it is simply the legal ramifications. I find it fucked up that society gets to decide what is and is not a nuisance animal. Nobody cares if you kill a rat. People kill pigs for food when they have been proven to be way more intelligent than dogs. It just makes no sense. It is legal to shoot someone on the spot if they are trespassing. But a dog or cat? Absolutely not. That’s cruelty... ?

Can't believe laws are the only thing from stopping you from killing pets over some dust on your car.

Maybe tell your neighbor that and they'll be able to keep it inside before you actually do something as irrational as you're feeling.
