Thread: Relocating 'stray or lost' cats.

  1. #1

    Relocating 'stray or lost' cats.

    I suspect a similar question may have been posted on here in the past - having some problems with cats in my garden, and looked into (non lethal) ways of discouraging them from visiting.
    Looking at various methods, motion detecting sprays, hoses, 'smell' deterrents etc. and the associated costs, I realised that it would be ME paying to control an animal that belongs to SOMEBODY else; and why should the cost be borne only by me?
    If the owner(s) of these cats cannot, or will not modify the behaviour of 'Tiddles', then why should I be forced to be the only one out of pocket?
    If I cage trap these cats, (which I do not own, feed, or encourage onto my property) and then take them to the local animal rescue center (unharmed), which will then charge the 'responsible' owner to be reunited with their pet, will I be breaking any laws, and if so, which laws?

    I have used one of them ultrasonic repellants.

    Worked a treat. You could see the neighbourhood cats crossing the road and running past my drive way to avoid it when it was turned on!

    I had the same problem years ago when the next doors cat kept killing my cage birds, after many arguments with the owner and ending up in the Police station myself more than once the talking to a Solicitor, i was told the cat can do what ever it likes and it is up to me to protect my belongings so the cat can not damage it.This was even after the cat was sat it it's garden with a Canary in it's mouth.There is an end to this Story but it can not be posted on here, all i will say is the rest of my Birds lived a long and Happy life.

    I tried one of them but it upset the Neighbours wife the other side of me as it played hell with her hearing aid .

    Yeah, I've seen them working Scubadog, but what I am asking, is, why should the people who do not own these cats, have to be the ones that pay to keep them off their property, whilst the actual owners bear no financial burden for controlling their animals?

    I shoot on a nearby safari park estate and the lion poo via a watering can round your perimiter does not fail.

    Hmmm....an interesting one this.
    I knew a bloke caught them in a trap, pi$$ed on them a couple of times while in the trap and was never bothered by the same cat again. I believe when released, the cat was in the next county a few seconds later & hopefully sat in front of a warm fire back at his owners house eventually.
    Have no idea if this action is legal/illegal....though I suspect 'intentionally' trapping cats is illegal. Perhaps someone out there knows?

    2 buckets of cold water over the moggy before release may also work

    Probably will greatly assist too, but if I were to do it, I'd be inclined to pour the water first.....just to allow greater 'soakage' of urine eh! ATB

    A solicitor friend told me something similar. The way the law looks at cats and dogs as regards owner accountability and responsibility is entirely different.

    Either get a GWP and keep him in the garden or get some gooseberries. Gooseberries from a catapult work very well, but only if frozen.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
