Jim went and bought one of
them driveway alarm things that makes a loud noise when somebuddy drives
their car in the driveway. It also works when somebuddy or some
animal walks in front of it.
It's called a Driveway
Patrol™ and you ken jest hang the thingy on the right in the
picture on a fence or something, and the other part goes in to where you
are working, or taking a nap, or whatever, and when something passes in
front of the outside thingy it sounds a loud alarm bell that lets you
know somebuddy is out there so you ken then wake up, or wipe the lunch
off from around your mouth, or whatever and go see what's going on.
Well, one day I woke up
after my before-lunch nap and got to thinking that I haven't been doing
much thinking lately, so it was definitely time to get around to some
more thinking, cuz that always leads to some new invention that I ken
make to help mankind.
About that time I noticed a
cat walking across the back yard without my permission, and that's when
I got the idea to use that Driveway Patrol™ to try to let me
know jest how many cats was sneaking around in my back yard.
After the old folks quit
working fer the day and they went up from the basement to get ready fer
dinner, I took the looker thingy and put in the back of the yard, behind
the little Christmas Tree, so it would find any trespassing cats and
let me know right away.
Since I have reel good ears
I decided to put the noise making thingy out under the little Christmas
Tree so it wouldn't get rained on if it was to suddenly rain. And
I also knew I could hear it from there and it wouldn't wake up the old
folks in case some cat went by in the middle of the night.
Well, I had some exter
strong decaf coffee with dinner, so it made me sleep reel tight and I
didn't hear nothing all night. The next morning before the old
folks finished breakfast and headed downstairs to the basement to go to
work, I went outside to put things back to where they were supposed to
go, and I was completely sprized by what I found out there.
There was 3 cats on the
ground, with their legs pointing to the sky, and big X's on their eyes,
and their chests was all puffed up like
they had a heart attack or something after hearing that alarm go off in
their ears! Then, as I was trying to decide if I should squirt the
hose on them to wake them up, one-by-one they woke up and staggered
The next night I put the Driveway
Patrol™ back outside, and when I came out the next morning there
was 2 more cats there, and I think 1 of them had a heart attack and
a stroke cuz he kinda crawled away reeeeel slow.
The third night I moved it
closer to the path where they always walk past, and I found out that the
alarm thingy had another part of the switch that I could push up and
make it even louder. When I came out the next morning there was 2
cats up in the little Christmas tree & they also had X's on their
eyes till they woke up and fell out of that tree and helped each other
Ever since then I haven't
seen anymore cats walking through the back yard. Therefore I would
recommend that Driveway Patrol™ fer
anybuddy that has a reel bad cat problem in their yard. You ken
jest type in Driveway Patrol™ on your computer thingy and
find out more about it if you are interested in breaking the bad cat
habit! I think Jim paid $15.00 fer it at Harbor Freight, so the
"Per-Cat" price is quite reasonable.
Somebuddy also makes some
kind of yard alarm that squirts water on trespassers instead of scaring
them to death.
