    true - I actually love cats. Can't have any because the hound I adopted tries to top them as soon as he see's them. I didn't put it up because I think cats are cruel bastards (they are, but its nature) but because I thought it was amusing.

    Cat of my mothers brought a duck through the cat door once. It wasn't dead though, and in the scuffle that ensued, there was a moment where it took off with the cat gripping onto it. Didn't get very far.

    We had Duck for dinner that night.

    I'm catwoman.

    My bf has a cat, but it is a long haired one called snowflake and I'm allergic.
    Got so sick from the hair and he still won't get rid of it. Soon I'll have to say, it's either me or the cat.

    I like short haired cats because I'm not allergic.

    Sometimes you can use ice cubes for this but the first time I had it in my youth the doctor tortured me with canned C02 which he froze the area with. After that, the next time I used ice as the C02 hurt like a bitch and cost a lot for the doctor but the ice worked too.

    The neighbor behind us had at least 2 dozen cats and we had trees and shrubs that lined the back yard we played in a lot and it became their #1 place to defecate so we trained our poodle mix to chase them and she was great at it, soon the cat problem went away.

    Men who like cats, on the other hand, are much nicer and more in touch with their feline ways.

    About hunting, even cats who stay indoors hunt their toys. It's ingrained. Mine were usually too lazy to hunt and also knew that i would have a hissy fit every time they brought me a dead animal.

    One funny one was when a rather rotund cat of mine tried to get a rather large pigeon through the cat flap. Did not fit, thank god, imagine the feathers and guts all over the place. she and her friends ate it in the garden. Who needs to go to the Serengeti, when you have a pack of domestic cats devouring a pigeon in your garden?!!
    All domestic animals should be controlled in public or they should not be there.

    Responsible dog owners train their animals so as not to cause nuisance or danger to people and other animals.

    They are also obliged to clean up after their animals on public footpaths and many public open spaces.

    Cat owners should be made to take responsibility of their strays!!!!!!

    Keep them inside their houses with disgusting litter trays to crap in or build a cattery in their garden.

    If they want to take them out in public they should be on leads like dogs and the owners obliged to clean up their crap!

    In my view the domestic cat that is allowed to stray is no different from urban foxes which are a pest and should be culled.

    That's a "no" then...

    The nice cat brought you dinner, strived and hunted to bring your dinner, and you didn't even give him a bit of a taste!

    How do I post these pictures???

    Unfortunately I am not in a position to keep a dog at the moment but agree having one is one of the best ways of keeping stray cats out of the garden.

    You could get a shanghai,....cheaper than a dog.


    Or lure a cat onto your car like this,....





    Or go for the the fabled squirrel-a pult!




    With just a touch of ingenuity,......it could be your very own cat-a pult.

    i went around to a friends house where there resides a prick of a cat ,it thinks it can jump up and lay on you or it is out side killing lizards and birds so i put packing tape on its side or back just to watch it walk in a rather strange way.
    needless the owners object, but i object to its killing ways so i do not care,it does look good doing the cat walk, also it used to crap in my yard,so no mercy.

    I'd only follow this post by saying this, their cats shouldn't be straying in the first place!

    You're absolutely correct it's about lazy cat owners who claim the cat should be allowed to roam when the real truth is not wanting to either keep litter boxes or clean them.

    Just like lazy dog owners who neither want to clean up after their dogs when they walk them or properly train them.

    Oh, don't be so silly. I don't think that a bit of cat poo is going to infect a whole bloody nation with weird and wonderful infections. One adult cat does a tiny wee poo a day.

    What about your roses? bet they are blooming with the free compost....

    Even here in oh so clinically clean Switzerland, i have to watch where i walk because of dog poo. Only last year, in the Summer, i was walking in bare feet because i had blisters off my shoes and slipped in some dog shite. Not very pleasant, almost sprained my ankle.

    My cats only ate the heads off mice, and left the bodies intact. Birds, ate the whole thing.

    Did have a lizard once, it's tail fell off as i saved it.

    I am against them hunting and am the first to have a hissy fit, but you can't change what they are.

    And you get those purrs and staring competitions to compensate.

    At my old address a women moved into the house at the end of the road who had six Cats!!!!

    My dogs kept them out of my back garden but the poxy things still crapped in the front garden occasionally.

    My next door but one who really was a lovely old boy and got on with anyone grew all kinds of veg in his back garden,her cats favored his garden as their toilet.

    It come to a head when he took to collecting it on his coal shovel walking down the road and shucking it in her front garden.

    The women became a hate figure after several arguments with this man eventually moving which was nice.

    People just don't take kindly to others domestic animals crapping in their garden,nothing silly about that.

    There's one ginger cat and one mangy long-haired mut of a dog belonging to neighbours who have in the past used our sala and ornamental herbaceous borders to crap on.

    Crap on the tiled floor, crap on the entrance access, so every mo-cycle and car arriving spreads the stuff around.

    Turned out that a neighbour across the soi was dumping his dinner scraps at our front wall, encouraging cats, dogs, rats cockroaches and ants to hang around.

    So the foster-son went and rarked him up over that, but the greatest success was in
    shanghay-ing the beasts whenever they arrived for a crap,....until the final solution was arrived upon.

    I sprinkled a mix of chili powder and pepper along the herbaceous borders, doormats at the entrances, (the cat shat on the mat) and the area of tiles the cr*pping beasts liked to frequent.

    As their twitchy little noses sniff up the pepper/chili mix, they sneeze, their eyes water, they get worried, desire to leave or cr*p in a hurry, point their ars*s to the ground, get another dose of the mix on their ring-piece, whince and go.

    The cat hasn't come back.

    The dog comes to the entrance, glares balefully, and finds another corner for a pee.

    Of course you don't think, especially in consideration of others, that's the problem with most cats owners, myself excluded of course, and we're not talking one adult cat we're talking millions of adult cats and more being born every day..

    FYI You can't change what they are, BUT you can control them properly.. Did I mention the b'stards coming right into my garage and spraying? Or right in my front entry on the floor mat? How about waking me up at 2:00Am fighting outside my window or scratching my car, or waking me at 6:00Am on a Saturday when I have a rare chance to sleep in? The list of nuisances is endless, not a single benefit to be had.

    I've no problems with people's nice little kitties, though I do wish they were kept indoors for most of the time. It would save a lot of wildlife.

    Feral cats on the other hand are a real nuisance. People who feed them without getting them fixed are just perpetuating disease ridden cat factories.



    Putting up bird houses and birdbaths to watch the birds is just creating a convenient trap for the cats to nab them. I've given up.

    I just saved this lucky bastard from my cat and released him into the garden (where he'll probably be reaquired and eaten sometime this evening):

    That's a skink, probably saved your cat from him, they are poisonous to most predators against ingestion as their blood builds up toxins and the color is actually green due to this process.

    Doubt it would have hurt the cat- I've found several half-eaten ones in the past in various spots around my property, and the cat just keeps on ticking.
