    Seems to me the problem is unneutered/unspayed cats.

    If the car is going to be sitting for a while mothballs spread out underneath work. For stuff specific to cats go to a store like Petco and they sell stuff you can spray on things that will make cats avoid it. Used for furniture to train them not to go near it. Once it gets 'marked" you will have to remove the smell first.

    I'd say maybe get out a hose and just spray the cats when you see them. Or just install a laser show by your garage and distract them.

    There are ultrasonic devices that supposedly work, although you may have to go pretty high-tech to defeat the smarter cats.

    Or just record your vacuum cleaner running and leave it playing on a loop by the car?

    If you don't mind getting the car wet you can buy a sprinkler that shoots water when it detects motion. Used to get rid of Deer.

    Yes, I do not know it all. While I take great pride in my humility, I am but a man on this mortal coil.

    Right, and that's why I was concerned about using a car cover. I didn't like the idea of my cover acting as a bed sheet for a feral cathouse with various bodily fluids from amorous kitties soaking and spreading throughout the cloth to stain my body panels.

    So I went right to the source: I asked my veterinarian. And we have a solution!



    Semen and urine shouldn't be a problem as they've never had an issue with any damage on their stainless tables and sinks there in the office. So there's good news there. Then to keep the cats off of the car, she had a great solution for that which she uses on the office counters: Office chair mats!



    Take the mats, and flip them upside down with the spikes up to keep cats and other animals off of surfaces you don't want them on. You can easily cut them to fit to whatever shape you need. Then attach them with velcro strips to the car cover to keep them from blowing away, and let them overlap to shield the wheels and spoiler from spraying onto the car. I'll also chuck some mothballs or something else like that repellant under the car as well.

    Luckily though it seems like I may not need to do anything. A neighbor just moved out, and two of the cats have suddenly disappeared. Go figure. But at least I now know what precautions to take, as will others in the future.

    Thanks for your advice everyone! It is appreciated!
