    here's the story. my fiance has an indoor cat. it doesn't dare go outside. well, the neighborhood cats have starteed to come around and piss on the door. i want to electricute them but that would be to "cute"(wound't want a fried cat on my door). i wonder if their dic would get burnt off. anyhow, i'm don't really want to kill them just keep them off my yard and specially keep them from pissin on the door.

    any ideas

    B But funny as all hell !

    Id just get a HUMANE box trap and catch them and hand them over to the s.p.c.a. either that or do what we do to CHEVYFUMES when he pisses on OUR door, scrub his A$$ with sandpaper and douse it with terpintine /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Vinegar removes some of their scent, so you can't smell it, but they still can. Usually cats don't spray like that unless there's a female in heat. Is her cat female and not spayed?

    There are repellents you can get at pet stores, but I would kill the existing smell with a product called Nature's Miracle. it has enzymes that dissolve the spray so the cats can't smell it. Then spray the repellent on the door every day until the cats go away, then once a week or so for a month or so. That's so that they forget they were ever there. Cats are creatures of habit, so if you break the habit long enough, it works.

    Also, if the indoor cat is an unspayed female, get her spayed and it should handle it for good.

    I had a problem with strays around my house, too... of course, the fact that my neighbor felt sorry for them and had a humungous bowl of kitty food on his front porch didn't help... BUT, I digress...

    Went to Animal Control and got a couple of traps (I think I paid a $25 deposit) and ended up trapping 6 strays, and took them to the pound. I guess this might be construed as "killing", but at least it's humane. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Cayenne pepper or a pet-safe version thereof might work. Got rid of the cats in my parents' flowerbeds. Somewhere I heard that mothballs work too

    Get the traps. If they're all strays, see if any farmer wants some barn cats.

    If you can see them shoot 'em with a low power bb gun or fill a water gun with nair hair remover,it may not get 'rid of the cats but you can brag to your buddies about all the hairless pussy[cats that is!] that comes to your door

    Here is what you do.

    1. Place a food dish outside your door and keep it full of food for a week.
    2. After 1 week, remove bowl and stop feeding the cats.
    3. The cats will realize there is no more food and move on...........

    go get a humane trap to catch the cats...
    sell the cats to the people who make bonsai kittens...
    no more pee and enough money to pay for the traps!
