    Hi Robin,

    Either cool off the motor engine, leave the hood up (maybe) or Garage your

    vehicle.... Everyone likes a bit of comfort! Maybe give them another warm place to be instead.......Hope you solve the problem.....soooooon.......

    Got a car alarm? Is it adjustable in its sensitivity? I'd use that to scare them. If not how about a fog horn? They like their privacy so if ya scare them a couple of times they'll go away. How about a motion detecting light somewhere near the car?

    Good luck.

    It is a very good idea to slap the hood and front fenders before starting a car, or truck . Cats , squirrels, toddlers etc. like the secrecy of the hiding spot. The life you save is worth the time to tap.
