Thats a v inhumane thing to do, pl do not resort to such things as a cat is a very delicate creature and you may end up killing it.
Try something else like water spray to scare it, if it's not too cold.

On the other hand I've a problem with 5-6 dogs who always sleep under my car during the day(I don't use it much). They don't climb over the car, but the problem is stray dogs raise a stink and often mess up the whole place. It's driving me mad. Scaring them away hasn't worked and they come back in 60 secs or less. Any non-lethal inputs would be appreciated

Start feeding the cat at a different spot.
Within 2-3 days the cat will learn where food is.
Also during those days go out and shoot the cat from the car.

If nothing works, buy a cheap blanket and cover the car bonnet.
As an added bonus, you will be spared of rats which cause huge damage.

Had been through this thread earlier.
Seeing this reminded me of this thread again.

How to keep this cat off my car?!-cat.jpg

Shall I start following the tips mentioned here?
Sorry for the pic quality. This is what my mobile cam and my photoshop skills could best manage at this time of night.

You can splash water on the cat every time you see it on the roof.Cats hate water and it is pretty much harmless to the cat and the car as well.It's what we used to do when we used to find any cats napping on the car's roof or any dogs were found snoozing under the car.

Cats hate the smell of catnip. So pouring catnip around your car wheels should prevent this cat from ever coming close to the car. Or you may use other products which are available in any pet shop which will prevent the cat from wandering around the car.
Simple safe effective and non lethal too.
