Cat pooping on lawn..


I don't want to harm the little dickens, it isn't their fault. Talking to the neighbor isn't an option, he doesn't care and said he was trying to starve them to death. The other neighbors are feeding them so at least they aren't going hungry. Not only are the cats coming over here it seems like every dog that happens by drops by to leave us a present. Oh well, at least we don't have any mice or snakes in the neighborhood.

Yeah, it's a sad situation, I don't think anyone wants to hurt them, but at least in my neighborhood in the city, their lives were terrible ( 80% kitten mortality rate within the first month) and perpetuating the cycle is unfair to them.

Cat pooping on lawn..


creeper, thanks for your kind words.
My obsevations of my small colony (five) has led me to conclude that well fed ferals rarely attack other animals. As we know from your experience some cats are more aggressive than other. One of my ferals, a small female will chase squirrels but it's just game for her. She could never win a fight with a squirrel and she would probably run if the squirrel did not retreat. A large back male cat will sit in his house and watch starlings eat the food left in his bowl. He has no interest in catching birds. None of the ferals I care for want to tangle with possums or raccoons that have shown up in the past. I do not leave food out at night when the raccoons and possums are active.

In Cape May, NJ there is a big issue with ferals harming protected birds. Not far from Cape May in Atlantic City, there is a safe zone for ferals along the boardwalk. Volunteers feed these neutered/spayed cats and so far I have not heard of any complaints from the people who live there or the visitors.

The issue of what to do with ferals is complex. It takes motivation, energy, money and common sense to care for ferals. I know that many people oppose what I do. Fortunately I have found a local organization that provides information and assistance to anyone who wants to get involved in TNR. I have found it to be a rewarding experience.

creeper,
The video you cited in your post is blocked in the US on copyright grounds. I was hoping to see it.

Nope...had some fresh poop today. Going to rake up the lawn this weekend and put some moth balls in place kids can't get to around the perimeter and then sprinkle some Hartz repelent( organic crap) hopefully it will deter them. Going to get the scarecrow sprinkler to see how that goes soon. Let u know then.

Don't know?...ask someone...

If you can trap them? Call LAPD. They have cleared their precincts of rats and mice using feral cats. I doubt LA will let you mail them a boxful though. Never know though. Celebs are into causes out that way. Box-o-cats.org could just work?
