How do I humanely make a stray cat go away?

There is a neighborhood stray cat. Ok, no problem, it's been here a few years and never bothers anyone. It has started leaving me dead critters. This is a problem. That means it likes me, right? There are two dead mice and a dead bird on my porch. Little Guy is allergic to cats. We can't have a cat and I think this cat has claimed us. What do I do?

Please do not take it to an SPCA - they will kill it.

Find a no kill shelter in your area and have them pick the cat up.

If you're simply trying to keep it away, you can go to a sporting goods store and buy some predator spray. The cat will smell it and stay away. That's the idea, anyway. Doesn't always work but, it's worth a shot.

Can't have it in my car because of Little Guy.
