OMGHi2U how best to 'touch up' a detail job

the neighbor's cat is a hateful, vindictive little creature.

yesterday I got $200 detail. the cat likes to run all over the cars in our apt. building's garage, and sleep on 'em.

dirty little paws + shiny black wax job = paw prints all over the car (dusty lil' paw prints).

whats the best way to touch it up without re-washing?

thx

No, dont use windex. That stuff will start taking all the polish/wax off the car.

Make sure it is quick detailer. Zaino makes some too, but you cant get it anywhere except www.zainostore.com

I use a resin polish on my car called Auto-Glym. its like applying a thin coat of plastic to the car. its so slick, nothing sticks to it. not even cats. cats try to jump on it and just end up sliding right off. they are so stupid too, they try 3 or 4 times before giving up.

just cleaned, polished, and waxed my car last night ... no paw prints on the hood, but i can see where the cat tried jumping onto the car before sliding off ;P

but yeah, that's why i have a bottle of quick detailer and a microfiber towel handy. great for getting rid of paw prints from those little devils

You need a pellet gun, a lawn chair, a twelve pack, and nothing to do the next day so you can stay up all night and hunt.

just take a picture of the cat on the car
tell your neighbors that their cat is ruinning your car and send them a bill for a new detail.
If they refuse to pay
SHOOT THE F**N THING!!!!!!!

This might sound crazy, but one time I heard from the cartalk guy that putting bucket of water on your hood and roof will scare the cat away.
