    cat paw prints on windsheild....how can I get rid of em?

    Hey guys so basically I live in an apartment complex and I have my car parked in a car port outside my apartment but theres a stray cat that hangs out in the parking lot and likes to sit on some of the cars in the middle of the night....and I know when its been on my car because whenever I go out to it in the morning theres always paw prints on the roof the hood and especially all over the windshield...usually Im able to wipe off the prints on the hood and roof with just a wet cloth but the prints on the windshield are more stubborn and don't completely wipe away with a wet cloth and also the wet cloth leaves a bunch of streaks that are super annoying when I drive so I was wondering what you guys might recommend to take care of the paw prints and avoid streaking?

    Try washing it with some car soap or take it to the local car wash.

    You should talk to the cat and let him know you don't approve of him sitting on your car

    My neighbors cats get on my car sometimes too. It's really annoying, I know they don't mean any harm but they usually leave scratches for me to fix.

    Trap it then dispose of it. Pellet guns work nicely (gamo) but living in a appt. complex might make that difficult. May need to hire a hit man.

    You're lucky it's only one. The neighbor behind us has a derilect shed that has a pair of feral cats living under it. He's old, nearly immobile, and clueless. Last year they had a litter of 7 kittens. Another neighbor was able to capture the litter, take them to a rescue organization who neutered them for $5 each and the neighbor was able to find homes for them. This year the pair had another litter of 5 kittens, no one has been able to trap them so now we have 7 feral cats living under the shed. The rescue organization will lend live traps to citizens to facilitate the neutering program. The problem is some woman in the neighborhood is feeding them so the clouder will continue to get bigger. She's been told about the problem, but she insists that she's only feeding one certain cat (BS). They deficate in my yard, so I have to search my property every day so my dog won't get into their disease ridden waste. There's a bird carcass lying out in my front yard this morning, which is likely from one of the feral cats. For some reason, cats are not regulated by law like dogs are. I'd try cleaning the windshield with Invisable Glass cleaner. It's really strong stuff.

    yeah I agree its annoying having to go out to my car earlier than usual to try and wipe off the paw prints before I can drive it but thankfully the one in my complex has yet to scratch my baby and hopefully it doesn't ever....I can tolerate having to clean paw prints off my car but having to deal with scratches is another story.

    And to the rest of the people who posted thank you for the suggestions Ill be trying the white vinegar and spray bottle trick later today and hope it works!

    I had this problem too, I caught my neighbors cat on the hood of my car, TWICE! and, I caught him sleeping on the bench in our backyard patio so I finally went and spoke to my neighbors...not sure if they got rid of him or what, but I've been cat free for about 5 months.
