How do I keep neighborhood cats out of my yard? How do I keep the cats in my yard and out of my neighbors'?
Many of the citizens we have spoken to do not want their visiting cats euthanized, they simply want them to stop coming onto their property. Spaying and neutering alone will reduce the spraying, yowling, fighting and help with keeping them closer to their home. Feral Feline Project has listed a variety of solutions for all the different situations The dead bird complaint is the easiest to correct. To prevent cats from killing birds, hang the bird feeder up higher out of the jumping range of the cat. I have a caretaker who feeds the birds and fifteen feral cats and he has yet to see a dead bird in his yard. Always clean up the bird seed. Bird seed attracts rodents and other wildlife, which can attract coyotes.
