Overstepping the mark
« on: Feb 25, 17, 04:18 PM »
I had a call at the front door yesterday, it was the old bloke from one of the houses that back onto our garden. He had come to tell me that I should keep my cats inside otherwise if they pooed on his lawn again they wouldn't come back. I was very tempted to shove his hearing aid up his arse so that he could hear what he was saying more clearly.

I can understand that he would find animal poo on his lawn unpleasant, but he cannot blame it all on our cats (he mentioned a large ginger one, ours is tiny) and the other side of the road from him is farmland, we live in the country FFS. Even if some of our cats have shit on his lawn I cannot allow him to threaten to harm animals and expect no come back. I didn't take any direct action, as tempting as that was, I reported the incident to the police and they have been round to see give him some advice.

Does matey have any pets himself ?

Another thought occurs to me.........buy a tiger and walk it over to his house, introduce Tigger, and point out that your cats will be escorted with Tigger whenever they roam outside..... 8) ;D

Our cats are not allowed out at night now, but the council doesn't police it.
Cats used to catch young ringtail possums, now we have a plague of them.

Our neighbour shot our cat in the head, it went through her lower chin & lodged behind the ear, we didn't know when she was scratching at the door that she'd been shot. It seems she pooped in the kids sandpit.

Not that I'm aware, but a couple of years ago he accused our cats of killing his pet magpie. We now wonder if the disappearance a couple of years ago, of our beautiful ginger cat called Amber was accidental.

OMG that was dreadful, it makes me shudder to think about it. Please say that your puss recovered and your neighbour is buried in the sandpit.

Do you mean cats are not allowed out by law? how can that work .

We thought she had caught herself on our spikey cactus, it wasn't until the Vet felt it years later.
She also got locked under their house when they went away for the weekend, don't think that was accidental either.  >:(
Thank goodness that neighbour moved.

I can't se them patrolling the streets at night.  ::)

Ours have always been kept in, at night. When I got my first mog, the Protection League made me sign an agreement to that effect. They've never seemed to want to be out, to be honest. They prefer to snuggle-up on the bed.
