I have two cats that stay indoors. Out of the 11 houses on my street, 5 have cats. Two of the neighbors let their cats run freely outdoors. The problem is that they will not stay away from our house. We have had to stop feeding the birds and squirrels from our deck because the cats will lay on the railing under the feeders to catch the birds and squirrels.
The BIGGEST problem is that these cats fret mine, and mine feel the need to mark the basement door almost daily. And whatever else they want to. My house smells like cat pee constantly!!
We have told one of the neighbors who own the worst two cats, she couldn't care less. She was more worried about her "precious babies" that choose the middle of the road as their napping spot. After hearing that, you would think she would put them inside, but no. The other neighbor is absolutely impossible, so talking to her is out.
My cats have both been fixed, and have access to a clean litterbox. My husband is ready to kill them or get rid of them. The oldest is 9 and they both are scared of everyone but us. It would break my heart to get rid of them. They both were strays that we saved. I love them, but cannot keep on going like this! Anyone else had this problem? What did you do??
