My wife likes her cats and the cats like sleeping on top of my Cylinder SUB. The Grill on top of my sub is now stretched and rattles from the weight of these animals... They only sleep on it when I am not home...

Any tricks or ideas you would use to keep animals off when you are not around?

at least they have not tried to use it as a scratching post yet.

Try some double sided tape, worked with my cats. Once they realize its there you dont need to keeo it on for very long. Or, next time you catch them sleeping there throw in Master & Commander and crank the volume during some cannon blasts. Just make sure you have a camera ready.

mouse traps, a little negative reinforcement is all they should need. It worked to keep mine off the kitchen counter. They dont like stepping on those things. I think it scares them more than anything.

Put waxed-paper on top when not in use.

What does that do? Make them slip off the side?

Hi,

give this a try, it would work well for pets too:

it's a kiddy protector I built for my SVS, and it still looks and works and very well (IMHO).

Heck, I reckon you wouldn't even be human beings if you didn't have some pretty strong personal feelings about nuclear combat.

Neat idea, but I don't think that would that stop them from getting on TOP of the sub.

Maybe bend a couple of coat hangars into a something semi-dome like that will keep them from being able to get on top of the sub?

The double sided tape trick worked great with my cat.
