Are you sick of clearing up cat poo from your garden? I know I am & I don't even have a cat!

Their mess can cause BLINDNESS in children

Please read, sign & share my friends petition. Thank you

Sigh. It's times like this we need a grip emoticon.

I asked my cat if she did it, she said no, I believe her.

I don't believe cat poo can cause blindness in children. Do you have a reference?
I'd love to see how you intens to match the poo to the cat in order to prosecute. They aren't like dogs.

What do you suggest? Keeping them inside. DNA testing all cats/poo to link them up?

NeedACleverNN Sun 17-Apr-16 14:01:51

Oh grow up

You can't tell a cat not to poo somewhere

It's impossible

Tiggeryoubastard Sun 17-Apr-16 14:03:08

Why would you advertise your low wattage in this way?
Namechanger my cat told me your cat tells porkies. Not accusing, just putting it out there.....

Watch out for the cat extremists!

Tiggeryoubastard Sun 17-Apr-16 14:04:29

You'd have to be cat atonic to think this is a good idea

Tiggeryoubastard Sun 17-Apr-16 14:04:59

Is there any money in the kitty to police this, should it become law?

NightWanderer Sun 17-Apr-16 14:05:58

I had a bird shit on my washing the other day. I wrote a letter to my MP about it but still haven't heard back. I think it should be law that all animals wear nappies or have to go through potty training. It's disgusting.

My neighbour once told me she's had terrible trouble with my cat coming into her house. When I suggested that she might shut her front door, instead of leaving it open most of the time, she told me not to be nasty.

I said, "Ok I'll have a word with him and tell him not to do it again"

What do you suggest re birds shitting on cars and windows than? Who should be responsible for that?

Get a grip emoticon indeed smile

Ha. No I'm not signing your "friends" petition. My neighbours cat poops in my garden and I just pick it up and put it in the bin. Hardly an effort.

NightWanderer Sun 17-Apr-16 14:08:42

You see, the petition already got 21 signatures. Wait, what's 100,000-21? Only 99,979 signatures to go!

There's a massive pile of faeces just outside my back gate in my own private passageway

That isn't a cat

Torn between a dog or a fox.

Maybe we should get a petition going about foxes crapping everywhere

DingbatsFur Sun 17-Apr-16 14:15:11

The first reference re blindness is for people who own cats but who are allergic to them, no poo.

Second one is toxoplasmosis, which causes many nasty things, but not blindness.

Garden with gloves and don't own a cat if you are allergic to it. Simples.

LyndaNotLinda Sun 17-Apr-16 14:15:28

Has anyone ever met anyone or know. If someone who's gone blind because of cat poo? Or dog poo for that matter?

I've asked my cat - it wasn't him. He likes to poo in our garden
