    Spray your hood down with teflon spray and watch that little turd slide ride off the other side.

    Actually, that would be hilarious and I would probably pay to see that.

    If that cat was declawed I might actually try that but as it is I have vision of claw marks that I'm not willing to risk it for.

    How about getting a plastic tarp and laying it over the hood? Maybe tuck under the wipers to hold in place. I don't know if that would scratch the paint or not, but the "crinkling" sound would probably keep the cat from walking on the hood. Seems like I've seen similar things for furniture. The cats don't like the feel of it or the noise it makes when they walk on it so they stay off.



    or.....

    (FWIW, I have 4 cats... One of which is identical to the one in that video... Disturbing... Yet strangely funny...)

    On a serious note I hate the thought of anything that requires me to inconvience myself like the time to put a tarp on. To me its like the cat is beating me even more than it is already.

    On a lighter note, great videos, I had an idea of where that sunroof video was going but didn't expect that. Clearly those UK'ers can take things a little farther than us.

    How about a "scare crow"; that is, maybe a mean looking stuffed dog placed on your hood? What cat would even jump on your hood with that thing sitting there?

    That might do it! Scatter them around the yard and keep the cat from getting anywhere NEAR the truck! :D

    They make shot guns for that.
    Cabela`s sells a tarp. I may even put mine on. I use them on the bikes in the barn. Birds poop on them. And there is hay dust in summer.
    I have just left the taco out. I doubt that I will use the cover. It has a new foot of snow on it, but that is no problem. Did I understand that you can use the rear diff. lock in 4L? I thought 4 disabled it.
    Cats are expendable. Tell him to get back to killing mice.
    I have a pine squirrel that likes to sit on my L Frt. wheel. I suppose that I should kill him before he chews something.

    The last thing I want to do right now is fight a cover. The bikes are pretty easy.

    According to the web sites I've read this does work but then other things end up eating the moth balls and dying so maybe not the greatest idea for the whole ecosystem thing.

    Does anyone know how to reverse the polarity, because it's not attracting enough of the other kind?
