Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Senoufou, the image of you hissing at Spirit is alarming!

In my experience, the other noise that cats run from
is handclapping, repeated loud handclaps.

More than once, I have strolled up to a number of cats who
were so engrossed in disagreeing with each other that
they took no notice of their surroundings any longer.
I got my two hands out and did my best, with my handclaps,
to imitate the crack of a whip. As loud and rhythmic as possible.

Were those cats ever startled!
First they crouched, frozen in motion, and round-eyed.
A few more cracking handclaps at close quarters, and
WHOOSH! they scattered to the four winds.

(I guess this wouldn't work
if the cat was hard of hearing...)
