What can you humanely do with cats that hang around your house, garden, yard that belong to others in the neighborhood (but you don't know who) and some who just seem feral or lost?
Our little town has no ASPCA or "animal catcher" to call upon for help. When you call all nearest towns to explain..they say they are FULL, for a year now?? They don't want them either, I believe. I'm calling our City Offices TODAY to ask what are we expected to do? Maybe they will get in gear with an answer.
They lay around in my flower beds, garden and use it for a litter box which really makes me angry and stinks when the sun heats it up. Peeee-Yewwww!!!
What can you do to get rid of other peoples cats?
My neighbor said she trapped them in a box trap and hosed them down so they would NEVER want to come around her house again? They just find somewhere else to go though. It doesn't solve the real problem of loose cats running everywhere.
What do you think or do you have any remedies for cats that won't leave or go home?
They get no food here. We have the shadiest yard on the block and that's all I can figure why they all congregate here...shady places to lay and claim as their own.
Also, people are supposed to leash dogs/enclose them (not let them roam) but what about cats?? People have outside cats and they jump fences and are all over the place. This to me, doesn't really seem fair to other homeowners/renters or anyone at all to have to put up with someone elses free-roaming CATS.

Sorry you have the aggravation. Trapping them and turning them in is a very good idea.
Your neighbor needs to be trapped in her own cage and get the same treatment! What kind of sorry excuse for a human, bullies an animal. She needs to be turned in for animal cruelty.
