Residents in a quiet cul-de-sac were shocked to discover a pet cat had been decapitated, its paws cut off and a threatening message painted in the animal's blood on a garage door.
Rhonda Gibson, who lives a few doors down from the targeted house on Hazel Court in Arundel, told the MailOnline the Gold Coast suburb is usually very quiet as most of the residents are either retired or young families.
'It's a really quiet area and there's lots of retired people in the area.'

'Nothing much ever really happens here.'
When news that a cat had been mutilated a few houses down reached the Gibsons, as cat owners they were very upset.
'Of course that makes you feel ill, but thankfully it wasn't our cat,' Mrs Gibson said.
She also said residents in the house next-door to the targeted home told her they felt the force of the fiery car when the explosion rattled their windows and shook their home.
There had been no previous trouble in the street, and the residents of the house involved were not known to Mrs Gibson or her husband.
An investigation is underway after a car was also set alight outside the same home in Queensland in the early hours of Tuesday.

The torched vehicle, a Toyota Corolla, belonged to the homeowners.
A gruesome message left on the exterior of the house, in what's believed to be cats blood read: 'Whers (sic) my money? Tik Tok!'.
Residents and neighbours were woken by a loud explosion around 2.45am and police found the severely mutilated cat near the burning vehicle.
The cat's head was left at the front door of the house.
People thought to be the homeowners were seen cleaning the graffiti off the garage door later on Tuesday morning.

Senior Sergeant William Lithgow from Southport Station told the MailOnline the incident appears likely to be an ongoing matter with the occupants. 
'It's not a random act, the home was targeted specifically.'
The cat had been 'decapitated and otherwise dismembered', though the animal did not belong to residents at the home, Senior Sergeant Lithgow said.
'Police are continuing to investigate and the occupants are cooperating.'
Detective acting Inspector Greg Aubort said the occupants were disturbed by the message.
However, he would not say whether they had an idea who was responsible or if there were likely to be organised crime links.
'We're interviewing the occupants and looking for motives of any persons of interest that might be involved,' he told said.
Insp Aubort said given the nature of the incident, police were eager to catch the culprits as soon as possible.
'It's an abhorrent attack on an animal,' he said.
'I think any case where you have the intentional killing or maiming of an animal is a disgusting act and we'll certainly be looking to prosecute those responsible to full extent of the law.'
Police were called to the Arundel address after reports of an explosion

RSPCA Queensland has offered a $5000 reward to help catch those responsible for the incident.
'They cannot get away with this,' CEO Mark Townend said.
'This is one of the worst acts of animal cruelty that the RSPCA has seen.'
Mr Townend said he feared the offender would strike again.
'It's a stepping stone to violence against people,' he said.
Investigations are ongoing and anyone with information have been urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Tip 3

Tip 3

Wipe down the weather-stripping and look for cracks that need repairs. Since you use it every day, your garage door will see a lot of wear and tear over time. Weather-stripping at the bottom of the door can often crack after extended use, which can allow snow and ice inside your garage, thus causing the door to freeze shut. Take a cloth and wipe your stripping down so you can get a good look, and take note of any problem areas, and have an expert help with the repairs.

Tip 2

Tip 2

Lubricate all moving parts. Once you’ve cleaned the tracks, use regular grade machine oil (make sure to avoid heavy axle grease) to lubricate the rollers, track, hinges and bushings. These parts can stick and become stalled when it’s cold out, and the lubrication will help get those parts operating smoothly again. When you’re done, wipe away any excess oil to prevent more build-up. Your garage door should actually be cleaned and lubricated a few times a year, so getting into the practice now can only help you in the long run.

Tip 1

Tip 1

Remove any gunk or grease build-up on the garage door track. As you use your door more and more, over time, debris can build on the track and rollers, which interferes with how easily it opens and closes. Eventually, your tracks may become so clogged that your garage door can’t open and close at all, which can be pretty inconvenient when temperatures reach those winter lows. If yours is snagged, this could be a likely culprit. Start from inside the garage, and use a cloth to wipe away and remove any grease build-up.

3 Winter Tips

This time of year, when you pull into your driveway, your number one goal is to get out of the cold and into your warm home as quickly as possible.

That plan backfires, though, when you suddenly find your door won’t open.

It’s annoying, yes, but it’s a pretty common occurrence during the winter months. When it gets really cold out, garage doors tend to stick for a variety of reasons. And when temperatures drop really low, the door may even freeze shut, leaving you standing out in the cold.

Your garage is a pretty important part of your home. You likely use it every day, and it keeps your car safe from inclement weather. When you leave for work in the morning or return home at the end of the day, you shouldn’t have to worry about whether your door will open or not.

Fortunately, with a few simple maintenance steps, you can safeguard your garage door from cold-weather stress and keep it in tip-top condition, allowing you to come and go as you please.

Top 4 Winter Garage Door Problems Number 4

4.) Excess grease / thickening of grease.

Symptoms: Garage door has trouble going up and down or will not go up and down. (Similar to contracting metal symptoms)

Solution: If a garage door has grease in the tracks the cold weather can make this grease thicken up and make the door unable to travel or not travel smoothly.  It is not recommended to put grease in the tracks in cold climates because of this reason.  Depending on how extensive the problem is sometimes it may be necessary to replace the vertical tracks and rollers to combat this problem.
