Re: Help - determined cat prowler!
since she is not going out, I would lock the cat flap and try to block access to it from the outside until he gets the idea. There are also a few tips somewhere about ways to deter outdoor cats from your property - there are a few sprays or powders you can place around your yard or even motion sensor air canisters that will go off when he comes near.
It sounds like she is so timid that keeping her inside may actually be best for her. Especially at the moment. If you can outsmart this one, great but chances are there will always be other cats around your house that will scare her off. And she might not always run home first.
