Tires do more damage to cats than cats can do to tires..if you know what I mean...

While I wouldn't go outta my way and swerve to hit the little buggers, I wouldn't shed a tear if I "accidently" clipped one .

Place a baited (cat food) rat trap on the bike seat........bike scares hell out of 'm , they want come back. BTW use a piece of loose string tied to the trap and bike to keep the trap. Works great.

Well, it looks like spraying my patio fence with PineSol and Chlorox worked. It's been 2 weeks and the cats have not returned to my patio.

At work, the 2 cats there haven't gone near my bike either.
