Electric fence energiser + metal tray + plastic food bowl + nice moist cat food. -ve electrode on tray +ve in the food. Job done

230v on a 500mA RCD to a stripped out piece of 2.5 ran across the top of the fence about 6" up works well too.

but the missus made me take it down after the bang. bad day explode

oh well,

it was very effective mind, I didnt realise just how good it was going to be,

I shoulda had the video camera on it.

as long as he poops in his own garden and doesnt eat food in strange bowls with wires attached he'll be OK

Im away this weekend (taking the little one caravanning in fleetwood!?!) so could put it down then if its gonna smell bad.

Yep that's it - the green jelly pellets. Don't squeeze bottle too hard as they tend to fly out en-masse in a strangely entertaining way. I like simple pleasures :)

So Cat's carp on your lawn, very rare, they instinctively cover it, tends not to work so well on grass

Now if you want to complain I have problems with Foxes carping on my lawn, such is life!!!

Toms territory marking, I get it occasionally cos there were several unneutered toms in my area. Fortunately they seem to have gone :)

Keeping the grass short seems to help aswell.

thats a thought,

Ive only recently turfed the back, it was slabs before, so Ive been trying to let it get dug in before I cut it too short, 3-4" at the moment.

doesnt explain the front much though, its usually like just green soil I keep it pretty short.

Get a cat yourself, that works.I had the same problem, got my own cat now no problem as other cats dont come into her territory.

Cats are like marmite.

Cats are nothing like Marmite..... for starters they taste better.....

Cat problem? Nowhere to turn? If you can find them...... You can call on the A Team (A for Anti-Cat) There is a real genuine hitman or should that be hitcat who will for expenses come and eradicate your cat problem....

Failing that, pop into your local chinese tonight, mentioning the area where you live and the abundance of free local meat er I mean cats..... Within a few days I am sure you will see a marked difference.....

would never kill a cat or condone such behaviour. However, I did once put bacon rind on the back fence then sit on a deck chair waiting with a super soaker. Normally cats have very quick responses but not quick enough for a supersoaker!

Absolute scumbag that's all I can say. If I'd seen anything like this happen the person responsible would definitely receive a taste of their own medicine. Hope they keep the hate campaign up when she gets out after serving 6 weeks in the holiday camp. How anyone can take another life is beyond me. I don even kill spiders just chuck them outside the house if found inside. No need to kill something that's living. Can understand if your goin to eat it to survive but for sport is just wrong.

Matty, imagine you had to be a bird. You have two options:

1. A broiler chicken, living in a shed with many thousands of other chickens. You are free range, but some statistics claim 75% of free range chickens never go outside, even though they can. You are fed and watered automatically. Once you become so obese you can hardly walk men come, drag you into crates and onto a lorry. The lorry takes you to a slaughterhouse where you are hung up by your feet, electrocuted and your throat cut.

2. A pheasant, released into a pen to start with until you are strong enough to look after yourself. You'll maybe have access to some supplemental feed but you will forage in nature. You fly around, can perch in trees. You may be flushed over some guns at some point but you have a sporting chance. Somewhere around half the pheasants released are never shot [some are taken by predators, some hit by cars, but many live as wild birds].

Assuming you want to eat meat, what do you pick? I chose pheasant every time. Being shot is a damn sight better death than being boxed up and transported to a slaughterhouse, to be hung up and electrocuted.

You give it some thought. Birds shot for 'sport' are not wasted.

Yeah true mate I understand what your saying but that cat was some little kids pet. I'm a animal lover. Was a junior RSPCA member when I was a kid and have pets myself. But saying that I enjoy fishing which is a sport but would never kill the fish and always make sure they go back as good as they came out.
