There is a cat who likes to sit on the wooden platforms, on either side of
my gas grill, on the patio. I'd rather the cat not do that. I put food
there. On a plate of course, but I wouldn't want a cat on my food table
indoors, either. How to keep the cat off the platform?

There are lots of options here. Place rue, thorny branches,
sweet-gum balls or anything that is prickly where you don't want the
cat. Cats don't like my deck--I have a cactus collection. A
motion-detector water spray will work too. Cats learn fast.
Or gee...I don't know COVER the damn thing when you don't have food on it.
Key-rist, birds could shit on it, rodents could crawl on it, and you're
worried about the occasional cat ass? GET A GRIP! The cat's ass is cleaner
than yours. Do you have kids? I guarantee that any cat's ass is cleaner than

any so-called "clean" counter in the kitchen of a breeder. Eeeuuuwww
Well, it's your grill (or your dinner table) and you're certainly entitled
to have it used any way you see fit. On the other hand, the cat's just being
Cover the grill area that's off limits: plastic garbage bags, a couple of
knitted cozies, a pot plant.
Or live with the cat's eccentricities. Lord knows, the cat probably puts up
with a lot of your quirks.
The cat's probably sitting there to better watch for vermin that might
otherwise attempt to invade your house and infect you bubonic plague causing
parts of your body to swell up with festering pus.
Don't fret, the cat is probably cleaner than you are as it spends on
average 87.564% of ithe time cleaning itself.
Don't worry about the cat, just stop and think about the birds who are
probably relieving themselves while on or fluttering over those shelves.
They'll be less chances of them doing that when pussy is there.
