How to keep the cat off the roof
Posted 27 November 2003 - 08:51 AM
What is the best way to keep the cat off the roof and to protect it?
Can the weight of the cat laying on the roof damage it or cause it to sag?
My best guess is that it should be fine because the weight of the cat is distributed across a wide enougy area.
Any input would be appreciated:what:

Seriously , you haven't said if the car sits outside or in a garage.If it is in the garage ;then keep the cat out of the garage .If it sits outside it is a much bigger issue.

You could whack it with a stick, hopefully it would be smart enough to get the idea. Or you could lure it somewhere else with a can of tuna. Or leave your car running & hide in there then punch it. Or put a chunk of old carpet on the roof when you park if that doesn't work. Or put a dog on the roof, too. Maybe spray some crap there that cats hate. Or spray it in the eye with 303 protectant and hopefully he'd get the idea. No , really I like cats. Or build a roof-height carport. Or put a mouse up there - oh wait that only deters elephants. Get a fake bird a locate it far from the car. Build it a cat apartment. Unlatch the roof and wire it so you can remotely put the top down. Or make a catapult. Leave your stereo on super loud playing ZZ Top or Ramones but muted then unmute it. Get a meaner cat and put it up there. Hire some kid to watch your car. Put foil on the roof, connect it to ground, and put a high voltage line to a can of tunafish on the roof. Attach a pendulum to your garage roof with a giant boot on the end. Or get an infrared sensor attached to a huge air circulator available from home depot and blow it off. Put a cow magnet up your cat's ass and put an electromagnet nearby. Perhaps put tunafish oil on someone else's roof nearby. Leave a coil of barbed wire and/or many thumbtacks on your roof. Lock your cat in the house. Sneak up on it and duct tape it to the roof then show it what VTEC is. Feed it exlax and hope his instincts take him elsewhere. Spray it with a CO2 fire extnguisher or a hose. Walk up to it, pet it, put rubbing alcohol on his back and quickly light it on fire.
Ok -- all for now but I'll address your issue further. :cool:

Take a bucket big enough for the cat but just barely so. Pour enough water that it is higher than the cat is tall. Add to the water liquid Dove soap and one tsp of vinegar and a pinch of ginger powder. Put on some thick gloves and grab the cat with both your hands, one behind the ears on the neck and the other just in front of the rear legs, on the abdomen. HOLD ON tight now and do not let go. Gently but with adequate force, completely immerse the vermin, er...pet cat, into the solution prepared in the manner prescribed above and hold for no more but no less than exactly five minutes and thirty five seconds. PRESTO.......problem solved.....:LOL:
No really though, a cat is a smart beast and a good non-crippling whacking with a suitable stick should be all that is needed. :stick:

I had this dilemma first with my NSX.
I am an EE, and made my own - I made a high-coltage/low current power supply, and attached an electrical grid to three rubber mats - one on hood, one on top, one on trunk, wired in parallel.
I had to play with the voltage/current - I set it too low, and found one of our 7 cats asleep on the mat! I juiced, and the next day, I found only a tuft of hair. They have not been on since.
