##$@$%# Robin Keeps Attacking My Car

A hormonal robin in his quest for territorial dominance keeps attacking his reflection in my car and doing a number on the paint. Now, the obvious choice would be to put the car in the garage BUT, the ride-on mower along with my 3 spoiled kids hundreds of toys and unused furniture have that space reserved. I could buy a car cover but I thought it would be more fun to pick up a BB gun at Walmart. Of course if my aim is off and I hit the car....

Ive got a neighborhood cat that I am thinking of investing in a Rottweiler for ... I def feel your pain, the dumba$$ cat cant jump on the car from the hood so he tries from the side and is scrathing the he!! out of my doors and unibody panels.

Same dilemma as you, if the dog misses ... 125-150lbs into the door panel ugghhhhhhhh

OUCH, isnt the owner of the cat responsible for such damages though? is it a stray cat or lives in the neighborhood?

I'm sure their homeowner's

coverage should cover it. Just be prepared with a camera to catch the action and show it to them.

Just go pick up a plastic owl at your local Wally World or similar type hunting/fishing establishment. Works like a scarecrow.
