Cat

Believe it or not, a sleeping cat will fit between the roof of a van and the outside edge of the penthouse roof with the top down. They do not like it but they do fit.

Be sure to check for critters before closing the top.

And you better let them out quick before you have a shredded PH soft wall.

Re: Cat

In my town I wouldn't be surprised to see a homeless person up there!

Cat

Definitely not enough time for a photo. Was to busy scrambling to figure out what happened and the get the top back. Once it was up he was gone.

He showed up a few hours later for dinner. Walked in like nothing had happened and no apparent damage.

Re: Cat

I'm curious how he got up there. That's quite a leap!

I've had my dad's cat jump up on my rear bumper, then the spare tire and onto the roof. The time he tried the front bumper to hood to roof he used the wipers for a foothold on the last jump up. He usually did this at night when I was trying to sleep. And then he would cry. Last time he did it, I hit the canvas when he walked around and knocked him off and to the ground. He hasn't tried again. Wish I would have thought of that earlier.

I have yet to see a place that a determined cat CAN'T get. I used to have a super fat one who would walk along the top of a 6' wooden fence (which is about 3/4" wide!!!!)
