cat on polytunnel

Does anyone have any ideas for keeping my cat off my polytunnel?
There is nothing either side for him to jump on to aid him onto the roof of the polytunnel,he seems to take a running jump up at the sides that way.
So far damage is minimal but I just dont know what to do as he only does it when he sees me inside.
However he can come in with me and often does ...just seems to prefer looking down onme from the roof!!!

Ours is beautifully perforated by our kitten clawing her way up it last year - a kids water pistol helped break her of the habit (well that and it being under a foot of snow for about 6 weeks this winter) :lol:

We had similar trouble, but it was foxes in our case. We planted gooseberries one side & didn't weed the brambles too thoroughly on the other :lol: :lol: :lol:

You buried your kitten in the snow? :shock: Shame on you Maggie! :lol:

Can you smear something greasy or oily over the liner?
