What can I do about all these cats???

A couple of months ago, this black and white cat showed up and started hanging out in my yard. Now, I like cats, but I dont own any, I dont have any pets for that matter and I like it that way. Anyhoo this cat is uuuuuuugly, and I would tell him/ her so whenever I saw it. So here I am thinking its the same damn ugly cat everyday, but NO. Today I go out there and there are 2 of them! Sunning themselves on my picnic table! So then I look and there are 3 MORE cats in the bushes, 2 more black and white ones (but they dont look like the ugly twins) and a calico. WTF I called animal control, but they wont do anything unless they become a nuisance?? I KNOW at least one of them is in heat because all nght long I hear this awful rrrrrrwwwwoooooooorrr..... I can just see a million feral kittens in my yard in the near future. Any ideas on how to get rid of these horny bastards???

Yeah, if I could afford to get all these animals spayed and neutered, I would have my own, but they are not mine!

Call the local humane society and see if they have a spay/nueter program for ferals. Some places do.

Wait a minute...stray cats are all over your yard and animal control doesn't consider that a nuisance? 

I love kitties, but I would consider that very much a nuisance.  I would assume they're pooping and marking your stuff...I'd give ac a call back and maybe ask to speak someone higher up the pay scale. No one should have to put up with that.

Maybe they will move on. 2 summers ago when we only had 3 cats, we came out and there were like 5 then the next day 6 and so on until we had like 10 cats just chillin in our yard about 2 weeks later they all went home. And none of my cats were in heat.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.
