Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
We have a nasty piece of work like that Raggytash in our neighbourhood. We invested in a small water pistol (my neighbour went one better and borrowed her grandson's huge water gun squoosher thing. It's awesome!) Like you, we were all worried about injuries, scratches and rips by this monster. He keeps away now most of the time. If I see him I just give a very loud hiss and he runs.

The other alternative, if you're not at home during the day, is to get one of those electronic cat flaps. It works from the chip under your cat's skin (the vet will do this) and only opens for your animal and no other.
I also 'had a word' with the Monster's owner, but she'd already had the thing neutered, and to be fair, she could hardly tell the cat not to annoy ours!
I can't understand why people don't have their moggies neutered. Entire cats are nothing but trouble. Everyone knows that.
