Cats staying warm on engine

My barn cats have gotten smart or stupid however you want to look at it. They like to get up on my engine while its plugged in. I have gotten in the habit of checking for them, but I'm getting tired of it. They won't get off unless I pop the hood and flush them off. Other than eliminating the cats, or leaving the wife and kids, does anyone have a good idea.

Hmm, well I hate cats so you know what I'd do...

Get yourself a good dog and he'll be right there with you to keep your feet warm on a cold night

We had an old farm cat in Wy. Turned over a wheelbarrow over a piece of steel
with a magnetic oil pan heater underneath covered with a chunk of old rug. Kept
him off the engine blocks.

just click the starter real fast then turn the key to off, before it fires up, the sound and movement should get them scared so they dont go in there again, did it to my cat

How about setting off the alarm with the panic button on the key fob, the horn blowing would probablly scare them away.

Surprised you opening the door and jumping in and the glow plug relay and pump clicking and running isn't enough to scare them away really.

bumping the starter wont work. A 6.4 will just start right up if you just turn the key for a second and let go.
