Default Cat Scratch Fever

So, my daughter in law gives my wife and I this big old tomcat as a gift to "help keep down the mole and mice population on our property". (Truth is, she did not want it anymore). I am against this, but I am of course overruled. Just the other day, as I was buffing off the last bit of wax from the trunk of my XK, I happen look up and this big old fat cat is strolling across the hood of my freshly waxed car like itís on the red carpet at the Oscars. Well, the cat sees me, gets spooked, and after slipping/sliding a few times, falls off the hood and runs off.

Did I mention, my driveway consists of "crush & run"? This is a gritty sand and stone mixture which naturally stuck to the cat's big sweaty paws before it jumped onto the car.

Now I have a good number of scratches in the clear coat and a bolt action .22 I plan to use to dispose of the cat. Any suggestions on the best polish to use to remove the scratches and/or suggestions of what I should say happened to the cat?

Any advice would be appreciated...

3M Scratch remover or Meguiars SCRATCH X 2.0 will get the scratches out

That would put me over the top! Sounds like you need to post a sign saying "Free Lunch" ---how do you spell that in coyote language?

I was hoping to declare this miserable feline the victim of a "drive by shooting" (I am envisioning four cats wearing red bandanas rolling by in a 63 Chevy low rider)...

A good canuba wax should make the round slide through the chamber and barrel keeping the velocity intact....... ;-)
