    In fact, it was in the same post that I said I was going to break out the air soft guns to teach it a lesson re boundaries.

    My only complaint is I can't "triple like" a post. Two thumbs up Jim.

    Why not just catch the cat and piss on him. That should make your neighbors happy.

    Hav-a-heart live traps, I've relocated about a dozen so far up at coyote ridge, one had a collar so only a mile away.

    This is a good thread, i am not a cat fan, so this makes me all happy and warm inside. I too have relocated a couple cats over the years. I warned my neighbor about the cat on my hood.... i warned again. I am a problem solver. ;)

    I've been thinking about buying a pellet rifle. I have nuisance cats in my yard sometimes, and now that we've been landscaping this spring, the deer are getting a "rodent" reputation with us instead of "cute wildlife." Is a pellet gun the same as airsoft? Seems like the pellet gun is more of a "airhard" instead of soft. I need to learn what my critter control options are. We just had two spotted fawns and then a doe with a fawn in the yard this morning. The recommended fence made of nylon mono fishing line isn't working. I've wrapped so many plants in deer netting lately that I've forgotten about the damn cats.

    I have heard that you can solve your deer problems if you regularly apply pest control to your neighbor's landscaping. It is best applied in the evening, but sprinkling their plants with a healthy dose of grain works wonders. It is cheap and non-toxic and you should immediately notice a decrease in your yard's deer population!

    1) Live trap devil creature.
    2) Don heavy jacket/welding sleeves/gloves
    3) Remove cat from trap.
    4) CAREFULLY apply several drops of skunk oil to cat.
    5) Send cat home.

    This is even more enjoyable when you see the irresponsible pet-owner/PIA neighbor a few days later with scratches on his arms pursuant to bathing said cat. 2 times and they started keeping their cat indoors.

    One neighbor has 3 cats that feel our garden/flower beds are their personal cat boxes.
    When I confronted her (politely) about them she insisted it couldn't be her "sweet kitties" and if it might be, maybe I should buy mothballs, place them in the areas and it might keep them out.
    Asked her why should I buy mothballs to keep HER cats out of MY beds?

    To solve the problem, I bought a large bag of regular mousetraps. I set the traps and just sprinkled a bit of earth over them just under the surface.
    Imagine my glee when looking out the window, I could see her one of her cats gyrating down the driveway like a bat out of Hell with a trap on her paw. Kinda like "kitty land mines", eh?
    The most fun was when I went to her house and asked for my trap back that her cat didn't get while pissing in my flower bed.:D
    Problem solved.

    Airsoft guns shoot plastic BBs. They range from cheap Walmart guns that don't shoot straight, to high end all-metal gas and aeg (auto electric gun). I have a couple low end models I never use... and mid to high end. My pistol fires straight every time at 400FPS and my all metal electric MP5 fires straight as an arrow even on full auto at I don't know somewhere around 10 or 12 rounds per second... that thing really goes through the ammo! I don't buy cheap ammo, only the tournament quality stuff, .20gram for most of my guns. I fire .25gram from my customized spring bolt action sniper rifle, which runs about 500FPS. The sniper rifle will put a BB through the bottom of a coke can at point blank range.

    I hate dogs (except for the big ones) and love cats. But messing with expensive fly gear is a request to be eliminated from the gene pool:

    1. Hang waders by fence
    2. Electrify fence

    Must have been lightning lol!

    I have a pump pellet rifle that I have used on dog butts (with their heads in my garbage can), cats (rarely, there are nearly no cats in my hood) and currently (on occasion) squirrels raiding my bird feeders. I can pump it once or twice and just sting the critter (plan A), or you can pump it up 4 or 5 times and go with plan B. I know you can take out cats, squirrels and racoons with it, but never have. Technically however, I believe any pellet rifle is illegal to shoot in most city limits. Since it doesn't make much sound and I usually hit what I aim at, (typically with some back drop like my garden shed) I don't worry too much.

    I was shocked at how realistic looking those pellet guns have become, not that they couldn't kill you too. But if I was tweeking, I know I'd be running my ass off if someone unholstered one. Power perceived is power achieved.

    That cat didn't show up once this evening. Not on my back fence, not prowling near my garage when I was packing the truck for creek fishing.

    I know from experience, 400 FPS stings real good, and leaves a 3-day welt on unprotected skin.

    Maybe the little fucker learned his lesson. Maybe.
