    I'm having a real problem with the f*cking cats in the neighborhood. Every day and just about anytime I go outside there is a damn cat on top of my truck or on the hood. I keep my truck damn near spotless but every morning there are cat prints all over it.

    I want to first say that I hate cats but DO NOT want to kill or permanently harm the cats. Just not my style. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can teach them a lesson or is it a lost cause. In my opinion my f*ck head neighbors should keep their damn cats indoors or I am going to start sending them a bills for truck detailing.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Release a few alligators in the neighborhood?

    put some catnip in a dish at least ten feet from your truck, that should solve the problem

    Had the same problem. Sprinkle a ton of finely ground chili pepper around your truck. Keep doing it as it washes off for about a week. The cats can't get it out of their nose once they breath it in and they learn pretty quick to stay away.

    I dont think I want to shoot in the vicinity of my truck with a bb gun. I have a pretty gnarly airsoft gun but my luck my neighbor will see my blasting away and call PETA on me or something.

    Catnip in a bowl? Isnt that like kitty drugs? I dont want to encourage them coming over.

    Ground chili pepper is an idea...I just dont know if that would be very effective in the long term.

    If they were just random ass cats I would trap them and tak them far away and let them loose somewhere or to the shelter but Im afraid these are my neighbors dumb cats. I just cant help from thinking how I would feel if someone trapped my dog and took it somewhere. Although my dog isnt running loose and getting on peoples private property or vehicles.

    The battery to the metal parts is an idea, how big a battery? Where would I hook it so that it would shock the cat piss out of them?

    Tiger urine? R U Serious? The blender is funny as hell though.

    just put your dog on a nice long leash and tie that to your hitch?

    thats actually a tough problem to solve my first thought was everytime you see them run out there at them and blow an airhorn lol maybe get a car alarm and you can just set it off eveyonce in a while idk

    airsoft would be my preferred method and if anyone says anything show them its little plastic bbs wont hurt them and you just dont want them on your property
