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???

That's odd. Where I'm from animal control will take them as long as you catch them. If you can catch them then I'd take them in.

I heard if you put antifreeze in food dishes that tends to help..............

I saw somewhere about planting lavendar will discourage them. 

Of course there is always taking a water hose to them, eventually they will get the message. Or a super soaker watergun if you don't want to go outside, you can shoot it from the window.

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.

Yeah, They said as long as they werent attacking anyone or damaging property they couldnt do anything...I hate this town

I like the idea of you drinking this a lot better. It's a painful death.
