Well I say Kittens, they are 12 months (today) grin

One of my poor boys is a nervous wreck after yet another vicious attack from next doors cat, There is fur all over my back room and every time this happens by poor boys will literally poo themselves with fear sad

Does anyone have any advice on how I can stop this happening? I have not spoken to the other cats owner as tbh I don't think there is much she can do but I'm wondering if there is anything I have not thought of what I can be doing.

It is quite distressing for the cats and my dc who have to witness it happening.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks smile

Could you get one of those catflaps that only let your cats in?i think sure flap does them x

Yep - a microchip cat flap. Sureflap is the one used by most posters here.

Here it is on Amazon but you would want to check around to get the best price. They're not cheap but worth it for the peace of mind.

Oh - and a water pistol for when you see him in the garden!

Thank You for the replies! I am looking into one of them now. I thought I might have to put a collar on my cats but if it is registered off their chips that is great!

Thanks again smile

Good luck. Let us know how it goes and if it thwarts BullyCat.

Microchip cat flap is the only way unless you have an Alpha Cat. Our cats are small and easily bullied and it was the only thing that worked. I still do a small grin when I hear one of ours shoot through the catflap followed a second later by a <thump> noise as Ginger Bastard from next door runs smack into a locked catflap behind them grin

We bought a microchip cat flap after I found a strange cat under the dining table! Harry was eating in the kitchen and the intruder chased him out so we had to do something. We went for the Sure Flap pet door rather than the car flap as it's slightly bigger. It was expensive but it was worth it for the peace of mind.

Is Harry a large(ish) chap?

Not exceptionally - the vet told me he needs to lose about 200g so he's not too bad! He has issues though, even the postman says so! When we moved here there was already a large cat flap and he got used to it so it would have caused too many problems to try and get him used to something smaller.

He looks like a cat in control of his life.

Harry1603 Fri 06-Jun-14 16:53:47

Looks can be deceiving! He was bullied in his foster home (the other cat used to steal his food and toys) and he's been chased in his own garden by other local cats - you can see why we need a microchip cat flap, at least it means he's safe!

Oh the poor little thing.
