How to Keep Cats Out of Garage?

We have 2 farm cats. They seem to think they live in the garage. How do I keep them out of the garage? The people that we got them from kept them in the garage. But, they are barn cats here, not garage cats. They are friendly so you can catch them, no problem. Thanks!

Close the garage door.

Always, although I find your answer to be funny as heck, I have to say that cats have a way of finding their way into places like garages even when the doors are closed.

Rosebud, no advice, sorry. Cats are like mice; they can squeeze through places you wouldn't think they'd be able to fit.

If their previous home was a garage, they're just doing what's familiar.

Just make sure to keep their food, water, and any bedding in the barn, and eventually they'll most likely decide to move on their own.

And how do you propose that I get my car in or out?

If a cat can get their head into a space, they can get their bodies through it. You would need to cat-proof the garage by sealing off all openings.

OK, fine, closing the door is not an option (though I have a hard time imagining the cat living very long if it is darting in and out as you drive your car in and out and that is the only time the door is open) I vote the above advice is best.

I guess my garage is way different than most. No place for a cat to get in.

You could get a big mean dog and let it live in the garage.

It's quite simple - you open the door, pull the car out and, if the cat has gone in, put the car in park, remove the cat from the garage and close the door. Same applies to pulling in.
