Feral, unneutered, countless cats roam my neighborhood. Some cats are all black with a patch of white. Some cats are white with a patch of black. Some cats are gray. All of these cats are inbred and continually breeding. And I'm about to call the ASPCA. Because I have had enough. And why have I had enough, you may ask?
Because these cats come into my yard and CRAP.
And I'm sick and tired of cat crap in my yard.
Earlier this past summer, I bought powdered coyote piss and sprinkled that on the lawn.It was sort of effective. It burned up my lawn. Being almost straight urea, it would. Still, I could see the crap more clearly, as there was hardly any lawn growth to hide it under. Having recovered my lawn after some watering and a few generous late summer/early fall rain storms, I'm still at a loss for how to get these cats to stop crapping in my yard.
I'm open to solutions.
All solutions are welcome, with the exception of:
a) buying a big, slobbery dog
b) buying and using a firearm
c) poisoning them.
(The last is absolutely off the table, so don't even think about suggesting it. I'm looking for humane ways to keep these cats off my property. Barring something humane, I'll call the ASPCA. Although, maybe I'll borrow my parents' small, slobbery dachshund and let him piddle all over the yard. Maybe that'll work...)
