#0506: Cat Smack Down!

Original Air Date: 02.05.2005

   Best Moment

Description: 
In this week's show, Pebbles the cat is clawing away at the family car. Time to find her a new scratch post, or find tires that growl? Skip wants to know the proper etiquette for tire chains. And Michael's in a parental pickle: When your father-in-law gives crackpot driving advice, how far do you go to keep the peace? Plus, a classic rant on bad winter drivers as seen on SUV commercials (you know… don’t attempt this at home)! And, a call for nominations: Cars that got a visit from the Ugly Fairy. All that and more on this week's show.
