I had a Grand Prix for sale a month ago at my brothers house that the pricks cut the cat off it and his Lumina in the driveway.
I can understand how they can get under trucks thats been going on for a while. But to wiggle under a car in someones driveway. wtf

How many do you need? There may or may not be a large parking lot full of brand new cars sitting near my house.

I have 6 cats here right now. Would you let us know where we can get $200-$350 apiece for these? Best I can do aroubnd here is $160 each. I will drive across state if it is worth the time. I should have 3 more coming in the next week or so. Thanks

My gf had hers stolen from under her Pontiac Transport right in the driveway of my house while she was in the house. They didn't touch my XJ, which would have been a lot easier to cut off.

This is why I don't have one. Well, not really the reason, me being cheap is the reason, but another reason anyway.

My buddy's dad work at the U of M and runs the grounds crew. Apparently someone broke into lot where they keep all of their work vans and stole every cat out of them. He said it sounded like a big demolition derby.

Another thing i heard that was being stolen is Ford pick-up tail gates. A guy came into my work not too long ago and said someone stole his and his neighbors tail gates in the middle of the night. Anyone know any truth to this? Im kind of sick of locking and unlocking it.

With my luck, some SOB will cut my cat off, get stuck under the car, cut himself and then sue me.

Just bury him in the backyard before he can sue.
