    My neighbor decided to start feeding strays about 3 months ago, and leaves about 2lbs. of food and water on her front porch 24/7... Our front porches are about 20' apart at most and low and behold this has become the cat mecca... I have about 15 cats that are with a 100' radius of these porches and a new litter just erupted...

    They are trying to claim my porch as their own, crap in my kids sand box, are constantly laying on everyones cars/ boats, etc... Otherwise I have an excellent relationship with my neighbor, and I need to keep that...

    Now get this, I hate cats as much as anyoneand have zero use or respect for them... I would love nothing more than to blow the dust outta my Rem 870 barrel but that's not an option as this is a relatively tight quarter neighborhood... Any ideas on how to quietly and covertly get rid of these things.. A whole pile of stray cats around my 2 and 6 year old just ain't gonna fly...

    Thanks Ya'll..

    I'd shoot them on site but that sounds like not an option for you. Start the process of reporting your neighbor after talking to them.


    BTW- Airsoft and paintball are a blast on stray cats!

    I like cats. They are my favorite critter.

    But, I've dealt with wild ones before:

    If too much boom: get a pellet gun. Or, rat-traps will hurt a big animal-thing.

    Did I say that I like cats?

    Maybe a live trap?

    Our neighbor (a BIG bowhunter / trapper/ turkey-killing kind of guy) was at our house for a classic bonfire / beer thing.

    Halfway through the night, our cat wandered up:

    "Is that YOUR cat?"

    "Yep."

    "I've caught him in the live-trap, like, three times!"

    He's a good neighbor.

    He's a stupid cat.

    Thats incredibly inhumane I hate cats but would never use anti freeze. Antifreeze poisoning is a terrible way to die.

    I too love may properly and my garden and do not support in any way what your neighbor is doing.
    But really......... Antifreeze, 410's and pellet guns; is that really where we start. How about at least trying to do the right thing first and fixing the route of the problem
    Do you really think that you won't be found out and appropriately arrested/fined and lose your gun owning rights.
    Gee whiz guys

    Put them all in a big bag with a brick or two in it and toss it off a bridge....
