Pervert

Friggin' cat decapitates everything she catches. It's kind of disturbing to find headless animals lying around the house...

Re: Pervert

We had a Merlin "couple" in our neighborhood for a few years. They would kill the pigeons and eat only their brains. The headless pigeons were a bit disturbing, but also somewhat satisfying.

Re: Pervert

the neighbor's cats have been getting into my gardens. so far dead baby racoon, dead possum, all but two squirrels dead, i lost count of the dead birds. one day one of the cats was on my front porch surrounded by feathers and dead bird carcass. the other week i found a decapitated squirrel.

there is no reason in the world why i should ever have had to look at a decapitated squirrel. we have a leash law for cats. our town is a designated bird sanctuary and i've set up my garden to attract them. for 10 years the same families of cardinals, baltimore orioles and bluejays come back here.

mostly the cats only catch the morning doves but i'm done with it. they get in my car when the top is down and get ontop the soft top when the top is up. they did about $300 worth of damage to my last sedan and the neighbor refused to pay. before they do $2000 damage to the t-bird i've decided to take action. i've tried to talk to my neighbors to get control of this and to save their cats. only one neighbor has complied but his lover thinks i'm being stupid and so mary is no longer talking to me. the other neighbors refuse to comply.

so instead of handling this as a considerate person, now i simply am setting up live traps with tasty tuna in them. instead of their cats destroying the animals in my gardens i will be taking drives into the everglades and feeding the alligators. here kitty kitty kitty.

Good for you lazygood4nothinbum.

I don't dislke cats mself, but if the people who are supposed to be responsible for the cats won't control them then you need to stop the destruction yourself.

i'll bring them (the cats) to a shelter a few counties away. i'm just gonna tell my neighbors about the alligators, pythons, cougers & lynx (er, bobcats) so they think twice before letting loose their so-called top of the food chain.

Re: Pervert

You might consider this

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...lance&n=228013

Its well regarded for keeping dogs and cats out of the yard. I've seen it for a bit cheaper than this, about $50.

Trapping and "relocating" peoples pets may be considered theft of personal property in some states.

Re: Pervert

Or you could try giving the cats away using this tactic.... it'll save you time and gas money instead of dropping them off at a shelter.

I wouldn't worry too much about that if you trap them on your property and bring them to the animal shelter. Our neighbor used to do that regularly.

Re: Pervert

I'll take it from the lawyer. But I figured that luring an animal with food into a trap and then taking it elsewhere might be a bit problematic.

Re: Pervert

We had a cat who brought lots of animals into the house (over 40 mice, rats, birds, and lizards). Once he brought a large healthy rat in.

I chased them both into the bathroom, shut the door, and let them work it out. It sounded like a cartoon in there for a while, and then silence. I gave it another 40 minutes, then opened the door. The cat walked out calmly, and I looked around and there was no rat. No blood or other body parts.

I figured the cat either ate it whole, or it went down the drain of the bathtub. I never solved that mystery.

Re: Pervert

About six months ago, I had a large rat, thankfully quite dead, dropped onto my lap while I was sound asleep in bed.

"hmmm...warm.......fuzzy....wet...thing...in.. .my lap THATSAFRICKINRATYAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

You missed your calling as a prosecutor.

But I really can't imagine a theft claim if the animal was on your property. Less risky than glomming onto someone's unprotected wifi signal.

It ran up the walls and was hiding above your head. It later escaped.

Lure one of my pets onto your property with a tuna filled trap and do something with it and i'll teach you a very new meaning to the term "risk".

My wifes said a million times that i'd make a great lawyer. I always tell her "except for all that learning and tests and stuff you have to do before you get to argue!"

So what you're saying is that if my kid leaves his bike on the edge of your lawn, you can take it to the dump and theres no problem?
