Another car cover ?

Ok I searched and read the other post. Here's my problem. I have a garage and access to another. But my garage is too small and too old to feel safe putting my car in plus I've got a stray cat problem in there. So the mustang has/is been parked outside. I want to get a "decent" cover for it. I had one for my Trans am it seemed to work ok other than blowing away. Any advice? I know some seem to like the canopy cover things, just not sure if I have room for one plus I'd prolly wind up with the stupid cats in there too. Is there any type of cover I should steer clear of? I'm not really worried about protection my driveway is a single wide and I'm the only driver in the household.
For those with the metal canopy type garage/covers how do they do in winter with snow? Hail? and high winds? Do they need to be anchored I would assume but how do you recommend?

If you're worried about a car cover blowing away make sure you have tie
downs and you'll be fine. I have had good luck adding plastic grommets
from Harbor Freight to add additional tie downs. They just clip
to the cover without making holes. A couple of bungee cords
stretched under the car to opposit sides keeps it down.
Even the cheap covers I've gotten from Wall-Mart
really helped protect the car out in the weather.
