    Portable electric fence with traffic cones. Four cones. Make mount for wire and drop in insulator in hole in top of cone.

    Will take a little while for them to learn but after they do you can just put the cones out. No fence.

    Water cannon works wonders... after they’ve been hit a few times, they’ll get the message.

    In all seriousness, get rid of the cats. Our make them inside cats. Sadly when we got our first convertible our cat had to go. Sounds cruel, but I would have killed it if I had to replace a top from her trying to sharping her claws on it. Now, we have a garage and one dog and a raccoon.

    That damn wife mod. I made sure not to install that one. I’d have that that one removed. Replace with a gf mod and supercharger.

    Go down to your local cafe and ask if they'll give you the used up coffee grounds.

    Get as much if it as you can fit in a garbage bag, then sprinkle it around your property and wait. The little fuckers will disappear quicker than a teenage dirtbags manners.

    Nothing you can do about cats whether you have a garage or not they will jump onto the car. Fortunately, they won't really use their claws and scratch it up so you should be fine unless it's a new kitten that can't jump as high and uses their claws as leverage to get to the top.

    I keep the car in the garage and we keep the garage door closed if the cat is outside. Since you don't have a garage, you could stop allowing your cats to go outside. That's probably the only way you will keep the cats off your car completely.

    How do I know I'm not awake? I read this and was confused as to why OP was asking how to keep his catalytic converters away from the car.

    Hoooo boy :crackup:

    If you love your cats, keep them indoors. Cats are MUCH safer and your problem solved.

    If you have a raccoon, you have to name him Rocky. :wink:

    LOL! Best mod I ever did. Most expensive mod I ever did. Best piece of mind I ever got and it came with an upgrade.

    The mod he needs is a "cat delete"

    To offer some advice. Make them indoor cats. You're neighbors will thank you. Your cats will live longer.

    I may try to get a jug of cayenne ground up from amazon....its like $20 for a 5lb jug. My luck it doesnt work and i just end up adding a new aroma to the car from walking thru it lol.

    Or throw a bunch of mothballs in a cloth baggie and leave it next to the car......or try the coffee thing

    Well we live in the country....they are inside/outside. They come in about 10pm for bed time and go back outside usually when we leave for work in the morning.

    Good luck getting rid of the cats. He'd only be getting rid of the ones he knows about. What about the rest of the strays?

    Cats don't like aluminum foil and won't walk on the stuff, so maybe wrap the car in Reynolds wrap? :crackup:

    Outdoor cats are changing the world: They eat too many Little Brown Birds.

    One proven cat repellent is a spray bottle with a teaspoon of ammonia to a half-gallon of water. I'm not picturing a good way to apply it in a cat-on-car situation.
