    Well, I'm allergic, so I don't keep them in the house, and never cared for them anyways (I'm definitely a dog person). Unfortunately, as you well know having had cats, they're sneaky creatures. No matter how hard you try, you leave a door open for half a second, they'll sneak in. And having any garage door with opener gives a cat PLENTY of time to sneak in. Let alone if you're working in and out of the garage. I've cat proofed quite a few of my rooms in my garage/shop. They still get in somehow. Thankfully, there's very little human smells in those areas (since my fishing room is seperate from the garage), so all they have is mechanical smells from saws, drills, etc.



    Hmmmmmm, wonder if that would work with cats? Hell, I know my dogs will always mark over what I just "marked" out in the wild. LOL.

    Sure it will work with cats. I had to mark our backyard to keep the neighbor cats out of my territory. It is a one beer yard.

    I actually have a couple cats that I got for my son. I know it wasn't them, they were indoors when it happened. Pretty sure I know which neighbor cat did it. Not about to do anything in retribution to the cat, though, that's not right. Yes, yes I'm familiar with what it pissing on my waders meant - I am just really pissed off about it and thus was venting... and yep I figured it was probly because the waders smelled like me ... But again: pissed off and venting.

    Thanks all for the links and suggestions.

    Actually, I think I'll keep my air soft mp5 or pistol in the garage so if its snooping around I can show it it is not welcome, without doing any real damage to it.

    Yeah. Not so much. :mad:


    Think I'm going to be avoiding vinegar. If I need to call Simms, and they say it's okay, then yep, otherwise nope, nothing acidic.

    A couple of these, from my non-lethal collection, will live in the garage from now on. The co2 pistol at the bottom is quietest, and shoots straight at 400fps... I'm thinking it will be the neighbor cat repellent of choice. If that doesn't do the trick I'm supposing the all-metal electric mp5 will do the trick with a couple full auto bursts. I was thinking I'd need to repel raccoons with them at my new house - meh, cats, raccoons, what's the diff?

    Not the story I alluded to above but in the 80s I had a dominant neighbor cat that would raid the porch for our cat's food, etc. Pissed there too. I was fortunate one day to close the door on the cat, trapping him. Had a full bottle of cheap cologne from some wedding gift (Brut or Hai Karate I think). Soaked the cat with the whole bottle full of dominant scent. Never saw him again.

    I am not a cat lover, and a cat that pissed on any of my personal belongings would be "disappeared."

    I found a product in the Surf Shop that is supposed to remove "wet suit stink." Wet suit stink is not nearly as bad as cat piss, but it can get pretty bad. this stuff is a highly penetrating biological formula that is used for soaking neoprene booties, gloves, hoods and wetsuits.

    My suit was stiinking the other day while I was trapped in it waiting for the locksmith to show up. It was a hot day, and although the locksmith arrived in short order, I was alread parboiling in my own steaminess. It never felt so good to get my car unlocked, and thus finally be able to change out of my wetsuit, which is going into its 3rd year now. Surfing wetsuits aren't built with "flies".
    So I went ahead and bought some "Pau Pilau biological wetsuit cleaner." Haven't had a chance to use it yet.

    Real catchy name, eh? "Pau Pilau" translated loosely from the Hawaiian: "No moah da kine stink."

    I loaned a large hava-heart trap to a neighbor who was having problems with raccoons invading thru his cat entry door. He caught one raccoon and drove it miles away and let it go. It ceased to be a problem.
    Later he caught another one, but he noticed it was a female that was lactating, so he just turned it loose, after letting it stew in the trap for a while with the neighbor's pit bull barking at it. It ceased to be a problem.
    Then, some aggro male cat started invading and fighting with his cats, and raiding their food dish, trying to take over. That cat was caught in the same trap, and exported to the next zip code, and turned loose where it had a lot of coyotes as new neighbors. It ceased to be a problem.;)
