the bins are kept at the back of the houses so i dont know whether he doers this all through the week but i have noticed a few times now he has jumped up and pissed in my neighbour's bin. only hers and no-one elses. her bin is always packed so it never fully closes that is how he is able to get into it. one day i saw him push the lid right back over so it was fully open. today i saw him again and when i went to call him away my neighbour came out and chased him aswell. i hadn't reached the door yet so she didn't see me but what can i do? i expect she will be getting pretty pissed off with this but i dont know what i can do except keep in in the house which he hates.

There is stuff you can spray to stop them weeing, i can't remember what it is called, my vet told me about it and its natural and non-toxic.

do you mean stuff to stop him weeing on certain places? i dont think i want him to stop weeing altogether!

Could the neighbour put a brick on the bin lid to weigh it down?

not sure, it is usually pretty full and the brick would slide off the lid. i think if she says anything the best i can do is offer to spray her bin every week with vinegar or something to stop him wanting to go there.

How bizarre... Its usually an " hey, this is my domain" thing isnt it?

Rinse it all out with biological washing powder the spray with surgical spirit. This will remove the smell so the cat won't smell their scent. Then you could soak some kitchen roll in lemon juice or vinegar and put it in the bin Or put it on the lid?

I'm going to be washing my neighbour's bin once a fortnight aren't I?
