We have had ours for two years now and it's still working. The trick is to move it around. Every other week we move it to a different spot on the boat.

That is a good idea! In this, the birds do not become so accustomed to it.

Papa has a fishing vessel! I should tell him of this.

Same with my daughter. Only she has had hers on top of the roof of the house for even longer. Birds all over next door, not a one on her house. They don't even move it. They also have one on the side of the roof that faces the house with all the birdie poo on it.

That sounds like it would work. I see them on roofs with birds sitting next to and on the owls.

Ha, I saw bird poo on the car cover. I washed it off with the hose!

This does well! Joy is all clean under it.

Thank you! I thought it was funny too. I put the car cover over her and said to DA, "She is not naked any more. She has all her clothes on."

DA laughed also! Gwen was here, and she thought it was funny also!

I shall be driving a naked car when Joy does not have her clothes on.

Your friend,
~Cat

Cat, I thought you were talking about Azia pooping in Joy! Thankfully, I read back through the thread.....
