PostSubject: Frigging cats in my garage   Thu Dec 30, 2010 9:36 pm

Has anyone had to deal with this?
I have that tent garage with my Impala in it for the winter, there is no way of completely securing the bottom of the door, edges of the back wall, etc, so cats have been sneaking in and pissing all over my wheels, walking on top of my car too. I found muddy paw prints going up over the back, roof, and hood of my car. Not good, the paint is 40 years old in most places and fragile enough.

Cat piss (it's not piss actually) smells AWFUL and actually corrodes metal! We had one spray on the side of a metal cabinet in my house and it rusted the paint off!!! Laughing

I see the cats going in and out too and have to scare them away, one looks like a housecat and the others are all stray disheveled messes that look like The Dude from The Big Lebowski.

I can't keep them away from the car structurally, today I washed the car and put the cover on it so it would be a little more protected. I don't want mice in there either.

I remember my friend bought a '42 Ford that had an Irish Spring bar inside to deter mice. I was also thinking of dumping mothballs around the car, or putting hot pepper all over the place. Laughing

I need a real garage. Mad

Lol, I haven't had any encounters with cats in my tent. But I have mothballed it. I've also got mothballs in side and some dryer sheets in there too. seems to be helping out so far, the only problem is every time i run it i come out of there smelling like a grandpa Surprised

I'd say try hot peppers or...get a dog Laughing If not just try foaming the botoms with great stuff and tie the sides down the best you can. I've thought about that lol.

I also would like i real garage... Like a Star @ heaven

Go to Home Depot and buy a have-a-heart trap. Catch them and relocate them elsewhere.

Try spraying amonia around where they are sneaking in.

The trap is out of the question really, I know more would just come back and with my luck I'd trap the neighborhood skunk and then really be screwed. There's other stuff wandering in there too like possums and whatnot, when I moved a stack of tires to swap them over I found turds all over the place in back of them. hahaha

Today I sprayed a whole bottle of citrus cleaner on my car cover, around the bottom of the garage, the "floor", and on my wheels and tires. I also put 2 bars of Irish Spring on top of the car cover for now. We'll see what it does, you could smell it pretty strongly.

Next step is mothballs and/or cayenne pepper!

Go to Dicks or any of the sproting places and buy fox urine. Spray it around the tires. Everything will think there is a fox in your garage and stay away. If you did catch a skunk in the trap it wont spray you. They wont do it when they are contained. Been down that road before

I looked for that today when I was at Wal-Fart, didn't see any but I did grab mothballs and spread a few around under the car and in some other places. I never realized how awful and strong those things smell! Laughing

Next step- fox/bobcat/wooly mammoth/Chewbacca piss

Honestly, neither did I. I went out that night and even with a different shirt on people thought I smelt like a grampa. Surprised but so far so good Arrow
