Cats

Recommended Posts

Besides shooting them with an air-rifle (which I do not do, but the Crossman rabbit stopper is ready for action if problems persist) what would you do to keep cats off.

 

I have a sonar scarer, pepper, and special 'wilkos' cat spray. Found a 7" mirror carp on the side of the sleepers this morning, sporting a rather funky lack of head, tail and half it's body.

 

Short of termination and discreet disposal of the culprit demon what is the best human method of dealing with this!!

Tricky one. I suppose a net would be the most common solution.

 

Personally, I'd try to build up the edges of the pond out of a loose surface, as cats hate being off balance. They also hate getting wet.

 

Actually, a sprinkly fountain might deter them...

there is a type of lily that kills cats but not dogs, the pollen sticks to their fur, they lick it off & die.

A wire trace noose on thier patrol route and wack the hose-pipe out.

 

Or go to you neighbours and tell them how much worth of beloved fish thier cat has eaten and if you see it in your garden again he's going in the pot.

Maybe get a camera and have the owners visited by the police if it happens again..... surly it must be against the law, if my dog ate a cat it would be killed.

Cats eating fish isn't against the law I don't think - Cats are known predators.

 

Dogs and cats are treated very very differently in law, although why god knows. Owners have full responsibility for dogs - the same doesn't apply to cats I believe. That said I was also under the impression that you don't (legally) have to report hitting a cat in your car but you must report hitting a dog. My statements above might be wrong, just in case any of you have ideas about those buggers that fall asleep under your wheels (happens all the time here).

 

Again, I'd be interested to know the name of that lilly. If a cat has complete freedom to be a predator then surely the consequences (if natural) are all part of the course!

 

I lost a mirror this week. Last summer two excellent (and valuable) Sturgeons. The sonar stops all but one regular suspect (a big ginger sod).
