A couple of scrap boards the size of the shelves, and a dozen 16d nails
through each board, pointed up. Leave them there whenever grill is not
in use. The cat will get the idea after the first couple of times it
tries to sit down.
Fi-Shock. Useful for lots of situations where you want to keep animals
within limits. One experience is all it takes.
Google it. You don't need all the "stuff" they sell with it. Just a little
basic electrical smarts to set the trap. Do not let the cat see you set the
trap. But watch if you can when they go to get up on their spot. It's
funny, and doesn't permanently hurt them.
it's still cruel.
would you treat your kids that way?
Heck,the guy should just wipe down the shelves before putting his food
plates on them.He could do that while he's waiting for the grill to heat
Being outdoors,it gets airborne dirt/germs,fungi,etc. on it regardless.
We use an old fashion mouse trap to train cats to stay down from where we
don't want them. Once they are scared by the SNAP, they stay down. IF they
need refresher, we don't even need to set the trap. Just place it on the
counter or wherever. YMMV
I found a product for window boxes and garden beds that encourages cats
to find another place. Its about 4 x 6 inches, with plastic pointed
spikes sticking straight up. It doesn't hurt the cat but isn't
comfortable either. they come in a bag of 4 or so. Not sure what it's
actually called though.
