How to keep neighbors cat away from my house?
I've (almost) given up on keeping neighborhood cats out of my yard. But tonight one showed up at my front screen door and was just sitting there looking in. He walked away as I approached my door.
I need/want to keep him away, as I know it is possible for even my fixed cat to start spraying in my house if another cat keeps coming to my door.
Tonight I am trying 2 things.
1. Vinegar/water solution around my front door and yard.
2. cut up hose - as I have read that they resemble snakes which repel cats.
I need some other suggestions if these don't. I don't know who they belong to, and even if I could find the owners it's not likely someone is going to start keeping their outdoor cat locked up in the house if I ask.
I really can't have this cat coming up to my door. I am not like many of you who feel any cat is a good cat.
HERE'S WHERE SOME OF YOU MAY SCOLD ME, BUT I'M PREPARED FOR IT....
My last resort, if nothing works, would be a humane trap, then take him to the shelter, then put up signs telling the owner where to find him. Sorry, that's just the way it is, and if you want to rip on me I can handle it.
