to want to kill the neighbour's cats

I often leave the back door open on a sunny day or when DD is asleep in her pram in the garden, but every time I do I discover one or both of the neighbours cats have come in and are loitering in the house.
I also find them in the garage when I leave the door open while the tumble dryer is on.
The neighbour's DC laughed when DS told her about them coming in and asked if they had peed anywhere yet! Apparently they do at home so it's only a matter of time.
Our own cat is scared of the other cats and rarely ventures outside so is not impressed by having them in the house! And the garage stinks of cat wee.
AIBU to want to string the little darlings up by their whiskers?
I would love to hear any suggestions on keeping these cats away.

I second the water pistol suggestion.

water pistols would make my cat come back, he waits at the hose in angst until you squirt him then rolls around making turkey noises!
to be fair im guessing these cats are probably not as pathetic as mine and probably dont also enjoy having there tails pulled off,

Cats don't like orange peel, but that mightput your own cats off.
When my moggie was getting a bit past it( died at 17) she couldn't fend off the New-Kits-On-The-Block. One particular little un-neutered tom used to come in a pee on the daughters pram in my hallway. He wasn't the pick him up and carry him outside as he took it as an invitation.(very over-friendly)
Cold water, Very cold waterthrown from a jug.Took a couple of times but he didn't invite himself back.(Thankfully,tomcat piss on your babies pram (RANK)

And need I remind you mothers about the DEADLY diseases that cats are now carrying?

LaurieFairyCake · 18/05/2011 09:47

You are a sick, sick man.

Blinding defenceless animals. Revolting.

LaurieFairyCake · 18/05/2011 09:49

How on earth has it been 'proven' that cat owners care about no one?


bamboobutton · 18/05/2011 09:54

you are one sick fuck woodsman.

LordOfTheFlies · 18/05/2011 09:55


What 'deadley diseases' do cats carry. I assume (perhaps wrongly) that you live in the USA.
The only things I can think of is rabies ( not a great risk in UK)
possibly cat mouth bacteria if they bite you
Cat Aids is only cat transferable .

kreecherlivesupstairs · 18/05/2011 09:55

Woodsman, you are a disturbing individual. I am reporting you.

LordOfTheFlies · 18/05/2011 09:59


Oh BTW I thought my Ice Cold water was bad enough (but effective) but yours is on another level that few,thankfully, would stoop to.
My own cat (PTS 17 yo we had 15 years) in her previous home had been shot by an airgun.Pellet under her skin at tail-could've shattered her spine.

boohoohoo · 18/05/2011 10:03

Wow don't think I've ever been so disturbed by a post before, I hope to god your post is a sick joke, or I would be very very concerned by your state of mind.

boohoohoo · 18/05/2011 10:09

Woodsman reported your posts.

izzywhizzyletsgetbusy · 18/05/2011 10:20

Apart from your obvious lack of education, you have some serious mental problems Woodsman.

"Cats are a human bred and engineered animal. They are NOT native to any continent nor habitat on this whole planet"

Go tell that to the lions of Africa, the tigers of Asia, and the Jaguars of South America, and take your pathetic little pea-shooter with you.

Needless to say, I've reported your posts too.

NulliusInVerba · 18/05/2011 10:27

Woodsman ha ha what was that riduculous rambling??!! people are jealous and trying to take you over basically, yes?

You clearly have serious mental health issues and disturbing levels of paranoia. Using big words alone does not make you clever my friend, you need context and sense aswell.

Luckily I didnt see your deleted post......clearly it was something along the lines of abusing animals.

Amazing how brave and mouthy lonely outcasts like you become when granted a keyboard. How about, if you stick by what you say, you give me your address and i'll pop round and see if you are so mouthy then? If you beleive you are in the right abusing defenceless animals you can defend your point of view in person I reckon.............

OTheHugeManatee · 18/05/2011 11:32

Woodsman Whatever you're smoking, perhaps you should smoke a bit less of it? Hmm

I don't really have anything to add to the 'other people's cats' debate except that

  1. It irritates me when the local cats use my garden as a litter tray
  2. I don't care that much, as I generally like cats
  3. 'Loitering' is such a good word to describe what cats do most of the time Grin
izzywhizzyletsgetbusy · 18/05/2011 11:37

It was effectively a manual on how to kill and main defenceless animals, Nullius. It was absolutely sickening to read and hard to imagine what kind of depraved mind could even contemplate writing it let alone acting on it.

If an address is not forthcoming, I would hazard a guess that this particular woodsman can be found on or in the region of:

Banjo Trailer Park
Deliverance Blvd
Creationist County
in the good ole US of A

NulliusInVerba · 18/05/2011 11:41

Grin at banjo trailer park.

It amazes me how many sick fucks there are on here. Ive not been here long and already I have had 3 rows with idiots openly admitting abusing animals.

Unfortunatly this is what happens when some numpty does a thread about killing someone's cats. Brings all the sicko's out of their caves.

Something would be done if they came on saying I shot my baby, or I beat up my toddler. Woodsman should be traced if the address is not forthcoming.

boohoohoo · 18/05/2011 11:49

Woodsmans post were indeed sickening, but am seriously worried about the state of their mind, it was too detailed and rambling to be passed off as a joke.

kreecherlivesupstairs · 18/05/2011 11:54

Good point boohoo. I only skim read the really horrible one. S/he is a very disturbed individual.
I wonder how it found that particular thread? I don't think it has posted before.

Lunabelly · 18/05/2011 12:32

Hello OP, I'm currently under siege by the neighbours' cats...they have driven off one of mine, and have freaked the crap out of my remaining kitties. We don't have a catflap, but they manage to get in and piss everywhere if we have the window open even a crack.

I am currently awaiting the delivery of a motion detecting gadget that attatches to your garden hose and delivers a short sharp burst of water when triggered. I'll let you know if it works...if it does, it'll be the best £20 spent on ebay EVER.

Fecklessdizzy · 18/05/2011 14:07

I find hissing loudly and rushing towards them works quite well, also squirters as mentioned above.

Dunno what it is about cats that brings all the total fuckwits ... Looking at you Woodsman, for such a nature-y name you sure are ignorant ... Our Mrs. Moggs had been so badly kicked about before we got her off the CLP that she wouldn't come out from under the sofa for the first 3 months.

smithster · 18/05/2011 15:25

Orange peel - put that by the back door - they hate it - harmless though. I realiise it's not a long term solution but it might discourage them?
