Is your friend absolutely sure it is a cat? Has he actually SEEN the cat doing this or just found it by the car in the morning?
Cats are frequently blamed but it is usually a fox during the night. It looks just the same and foxes never cover it over, cats are very particular about this and very rarely use open hard surfaces.
Or does your friend park his car on grass or bare earth?
Cats get unfairly blamed for this.
I know this because I have several foxes in the garden and have to clear up quite regularly.

Jeyes fluid is the way to go for hard ground/gravel. For grass I've seen pepper, lemon peel, citronella oil and chilli powder recommended. I don't think the RSPCA would approve of chilli powder though...

Not bothered what the RSPCA think they don't have to clean it up, going to try the pepper / chilli powder route...

thanks for the tips Ill let him know but I did tell him not to go down the shooting route because if its a cat its someones pet & I would have been devastated if someone had done that to my cat.

Anyone suggesting shooting a cat is a complete irresponsible moron.

Not only is it killing someone's pet it's also,illegal and giving people who who use airguns legitimately a bad name.

Just out of interest,what's a legitimate use for an airgun?
