Thread: cat deterrants

    My first reaction would be to live trap the cat and dispose of it. If you are mentally unable to cross that bridge I would think a reverse slant fence might do it. Though that is a lot of work and expense to accomodate a problem someone else is imposing on you.

    We used to use moth balls to keep stray cats and racoons out of our trash.

    It worked OK. You would just need to make sure non of them got into the pond
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    They do make granulated cat repellant made from urine of predator types such as coyotes you can buy at some home and garden shops. I've not tried it personally but that would save you from chasing them in the wild.

    Moth balls work for cats, they also work for deer. However, they destroy your enjoyment of the pond because the fumes fill the air and prevent you from spending much time there. That's some serious self punishment imposed for another person's thoughtlessness. Capital cat punishment still sounds like a fair and final solution.

    Dogs are awesome cat deterrants. Borrow a friend's dog and have it pee all over the yard

    Cat repellant does work My GSD keep killing the stray cats that came into our yard. Some one called the dog catcher on us for killing cats. they told us to get cat repellant and spray all around the yard and they would stay out. and they do. I think my GSD was a better idea. It was cheaper

    Waaaait... you didn't care the cats were getting killed?!?!! Whoever called the dogcatcher had the right idea!!! Even if they are strays, they're still cats!!!! poor cats
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.
