Does my ass look big?
I kinda messed up that last thread. I guess I got carried away posting music videos.
Here’s a nice fresh thread.
The SF Giants are losing but I’m too drunk too care right now. Ima gonna take a nap.
I gotta important question.
The neighbor’s tomcat keeps coming in my garage and bothering my cats. What’s a good way to deal with the little fucker without killing him?
My cats are feline senior citizens and they have both been fixed. They don’t leave the yard. Some days they don’t leave the house. But it’s nice weather and they like to go outside or at least into the garage.
Suppose you live in too close to claim the coyotes got him? There are other ways but they involve chants and incantations, and only work when the chanter is sobrr.
If I wanted to kill him I wouldn’t have asked the question. I have a garage door that has already claimed a couple feline lives and extra remote that fits in my pocket..
I am trying to find a non-lethal solution.
Yeah, just trying to come up with something that drives Tom away but leaves the “old folks’ alone. I got nothing.
This isn’t a good answer but all I’ve done is just be quick to respond when the howls start. Something about the tomcat knowing your cats have back-up seems to help. I’ve walked the tomcats off the property and watched if they returned, went outside, and walked them off again.
I’m in a thing with a big, fluffy, white tomcat who wants to mark our front door and battle our cats to do it. The last dust-up happen at 4am. That time I got the mag light and flashed it in his eyes and walked him off across the street. Whatta meany, I know. Actually speaking of… that fluffy dude is outside now… and now he’s gone. For some reason the mag light clicking noise scared him.
Anyway, maybe one of those little generic spray bottles from the supermarket that shoot a good distance might work. If just spraying water on them isn’t enough you might want to try a bit of white vinegar in the spray bottle for the smell. I know white vinegar cleans up cat urine and cuts their desire to spray that spot again. So it might work as a cat repellant on your property.
If it’s marking territory, liberally spraying vinegar directly onto the same area USUALLY discourages them. But tomcats are stubborn.
That’s why I thought just spraying the tomcat with only water wouldn’t be enough. I’ve seen them sit in the rain happy as can be.
I haven’t tried it. The only time I considered spraying cats was when they wouldn’t leave the speakers alone. And that ended up in a water war with my husband…lol…no cats were sprayed but we had fun.
I have chased him off a few times. I have sprayed him with water too. He’s tomcat stubborn.
And mean. He’s attacked my male cat a few times, and mine is a lover not a fighter.
My female is willing to kick his ass but she’s too slow and stays inside more than the male.
The only thing I’ve been able to come up with is a trap. Big cage, food in it. The trick is to not trap your own animals, so only put it out when yours are in. Then off to the pound or wherever with him. If someone has a better pest-away solution, I’d like to know too.
My cats are generally lovers but the female is the one that is willing to battle as well. She is small and old but always runs to the fight. In fact, that tomcat was trying to challenge her when I got out there tonight. She was the one who had the tomcat cornered in that 4am dust-up and only his fur was floating around.
Maybe try straight vinegar to tag/spray the cat or like Dandy suggested traps.
We got a tomcat spayed at Alley Cat in Modesto but it doesn’t look like one is in your area. However, at the bottom of this page on how to deter a cat, there is a link for local help in dealing with a feral cat. They would probably have better advice.

What a goof. By the time Obama is out of office the entire world will be cheering that Kerry/Obama is finally gone.
Conan had a joke at the WHC dinner that Kerry would be played by an Easter Island head in the tv movie about DC. We would be better off with the head.
