Hi all. I've looked for a gentle non invasive way to rid my area of cats or their owners. .where I am there are about 20 places where over 60 cats live. Of a night it's like a road show of lights when you turn a corner and see the creatures scuttle into drains or over fences. . I have nearly finished the front yard but the closer I get to the end point the more cat poop I find. Natives planted with pea straw decomposing and mulch to go over top soon. Now, short of screaming at the neighbors, which I have done via less than gentle talking and sending of photos I am at my wits end. My inside dog barks of a night and of a day I am the recipient of more poop. Not his. Four days ago, my unfinished but in use hot house was decimated by fighting cats or cat on possum and I lost 2000 seedlings about to be placed thinned to cell pots, and lost close to 7000 seed stock cos I'd left them on a bench I was working on, went Inside for dinner and ....My now new compost will be interesting next season.. . I was waiting on a delivery of cell pot trays from Qld and just cancelled the order as I now have about 190 maybe viable stock left. Cat traps don't work here Council feels for my plight but no regulation to register cats or keep them inside. If I catch a domestic I have to release it and only have over feral. If my dog came and pooped in people's yard every night or wandered into their back yards there'd be hell to pay but not a single cat owner I have approached seems to think it's their freaking cat in my yard. I thought maybe a slight weight gain lead pellet right ear was a great idea until I realised I am in a now residential area and don't own a pellet shooter anyway.. Please, some help, I am so sad. I lost my entire seedling crops, the jade cuttings are all messed up, the damage bill to the hot house itself is about $400/600ish and it all happened before I could pull my boots back on.
