Cats and Cars

Bowie dreams life’s a highway, too many roads bypass my way. 

Cats don’t like cars. Dogs do like cars. Cats only walk all over the hood of cars. How can you keep cats off cars? Don’t sprinkle cayenne pepper around the car. Don’t purchase mothballs and spread them out around your car, including on the car’s roof. Don’t set up an ultrasound pet alarm. Don’t try a CatStop. This product works for up to about 20 feet by emitting a high-pitched sound that humans can’t hear. Don’t use a ScatMat, which scares the animals off, teaching them not to go on your car.

So how do we respond? Don’t go to the car wash. Seriously, don’t wash your car. You don’t want to, you don’t like it. Cats don’t jump on dirty cars. At least, Mr. Bowie doesn’t. And don’t drive your car. Cats like to sit on your car because it’s warm on the hood. Take your bike. Take a walk. Reduce your ecological footprint. Or just stay at home, like I do. And write a story about your cat.

Ik heb ook last van katten die op de wagen lopen en slapen. Katten van de buren. Bowie doet dit niet. Bowie houdt niet van vuile wagens. En mijn wagen is echt wel vuil. Maar daar hebben de katten uit de buurt blijkbaar geen probleem mee. Straatkatten dus.
