My cats get fed too well to eat the birds .They cost me $ 150.00 a month to feed them. I am surrounded by dairy farms so they just keep coming and then i get the odd city slicker tossing thier cat out in front of my place.

Default Good for you

Glad to see someone with a mission.
So you have to build at least one house a month to support your family of felines.

Hope they keep the mouse population in check anyway.

The cats do a great job with the mice outside but since they don,t come in the house the mice do ,I am picking up some mouse traps today.

It's not the fault of the cats. Their just doing what comes naturally. It's the irresponsible owners. I don't care much for cats, but I also don't that they should pay for the carelessness of their owners. The Sprinkler would be hilarious.
Also, I'm a firm believer in payback. Using a rubber glove, pick up the offending poo and decorate the neighbors house with a curve ball.

Also, if you can actually catch the cats in your yard, a mixture of liquid skunk scent and water in an electric watergun sprayed liberally onto the cats will give the neighbors a wonderful aroma throughout their home.

I am quite impressed with your cat collection.... but.... hourding is no fun.... I know... cause I tend to do it myself... I have 12 myself.... they have all been either rescued or there mommy had them when I rescued her......
people need to be more responsible with their pets..... most of mine are spayed or neutered......

I've got 8 cats and 5 dogs. They're pretty much ok, as long as they don't meet each other inside the house. Or else it would turn like a bloody war zone. I don't have much of mice problems at home.

But I don't plan to add any more pets any time soon. i think 8 cats and 5 dogs is enough. Plus my pet monkey and lizard.

It's cool to know you've got plenty of pets. Take good care of them.

Black pepper sprinkled around the garden will do the trick. Scoop the poo and toss it in the neighbor's yard.

After months I am still getting the same problem. Talked to the neighbor but no results.

I am thinking of trapping the little creature.
