The bond between cat and car is worth repeating Mike, go on tell the forum the story, it amused me..

I was a kit car dreamer until I hit 100 I think! By which time my car was on the road...

On the subject of cats, I myself am not a cat lover (this is something of an understatement), so you can imagine my outrage at finding cat hairs on my beautifully flocked dashboard. I mean right now it's hair, next it might be wet patches or dead birds. My car lives in a carport under a cover, and no doubt the local alleycats thought it would be a warm luxurious place to get some R&R. This will not do! Until I get my ragtop (note to self I *really* need to get in touch with Terry and find where that's up to!) and can seal it off, I've hit on the solution of putting a small tray of cat-repellent clay granules on the dash. I can't smell a thing but it seems to have worked - no evidence of recent habitation!

Any cat lovers will be relieved that I opted for this solution rather than some of my more elaborate ideas involving infra-red sensors, lasers, robot arms and vats of boiling oil....
