Roof vortex generator

This cat keeps climbing on my car, if i trap him there with some double sided tape, will he make a good vortex generator?

The cat probably jumped onto the back and then to the top.

Strap him at the back
He would work as a boat tail

Feline VGs

I'd replace the single cat with eight, evenly-spaced kittens. Head first.
They come with 'tufts.'
Just watch their tails for flow alignment.

How does one get 8 cats/kittens, whatever, do the same thing simultaneously?

Dwyer Instruments, Inc. has contracted an Irish bio-engineering company to provide cloned, dwarf kittens of uniform specification.
And the best motion picture animal trailers have been recruited to train the kittens to fix their attention onto a holographic projection upstream of their position, provided by head-ware equipment included in the package; which generates delta-wing, co-rotating vortices. A synthetic goose pate scent agent, applied upstream also helps to capture their olfactory attention towards the forebody.
VELCRO socks and mittens afix the kittens in a chosen position for testing, and the kittens remain in a catatonic state, until a holographic prompt signals termination of the testing session.
Muscle relaxant is administered to the tail stem to provide three-degrees of freedom.
Pavlovian rewards are administered between sessions to maintain the animals interest.
Contact an authorized sales agent for pricing.
