Default so....don't let your cat sleep on your convertible top.

I came across this picture in one of my iPhone picture folders from last summer..... my brother's cat had gotten out of the house and decided to sunbathe on my convertible top

the little bugger is lucky I like her but damn, that mess took me a good hour to clean up.... and a whole roll of packing tape too. Getting cat hair off the canvas is not an easy job.

I'm a dog person myself mostly because I have a soft gravel driveway. The neighbour's cats think where I park my car is a giant litterbox. My cruiser is parked in the street's official 'Poo Station'.

Yep. I'm a dog person

I'm a dog and a cat person.... but where I live now I don't have the space for a dog and I prefer large dogs to small ones. I don't think my landlord would like it if I brought home a Great Dane....

A lint roller works pretty good for pet hair removal. I'm a dog person too. Never have been and never will be a cat person. Can't trust them!

I do not like cats........my neighbor brings every stray feral cat around in...there's is about 30-40 of them I have to deal with...... most everything around stinks like cat......I have complained with no results...there is a difference in a house cat and a Feral cat.......I have a Vert also and was almost as bad..

leave out a dish of extra salty catfood and a dish filled with antifreeze. cats die of kidney failure all the time. very unfortunate.

If you drive about 80+, it ought to take care of the hair, and if you do that with the cat on top, it's a permanent cure...

that's a very cruel and inhumane way to kill an animal. I had a Rottweiler die that way because some idiot neighbour left a puddle of antifreeze in their driveway and my dog jumped the fence. She died a slow and painful death. She had ingested too much antifreeze and there was nothing the vet could do for her and I had to watch her die.

If you dislike feral cats, maybe call a rescue who does trap, neuter and release of feral cats so they don't reproduce instead of being a dick.

actually, after I cleaned it, I Scotch garded it and squirted it with water spiked with a bit of Tabasco sauce. Cats hate tabasco sauce, the tiniest bit is too overpowering for their noses. No cats sunbathing on the car since!

Ummmm, call animal control or social services maybe? If your neighbour seems to be an unofficial animal rescue they've got some issues going on.

I've got one cat and trust me, that's enough. She doesn't go outside, and she's old, so all she does is try and hunt birds by watching them through the window and sleep. She's beyond the kitten from hell years, but she cured me from wanting a kitten for a long time.
