View Full Version : cat preventing me from volleying

01-18-2009, 09:49 AM
I normally practice volleys/half volleys against the back wall of my house. However, recently a cat (or cats) has been pooping in my yard. I have to scoop the poop off everyday before volleying, and I hate doing that. Why can't it poop in it's owners yard :twisted:?

anyway, how I can deter the cat(s) from comming into my yard? any natural repellents or 'scarecats' available? :)

Mace in the face puts the cat in it's place. :D Works for dogs too.

Or just get a dog...

Shotgun? Pit Bull? Land Mine? ;o)

House cats hate getting wet. Spray it with a garden hose the next time the offending feline ventures onto your lawn.

People who allow their pets to roam without supervision are sort of obnoxious. Maybe you should take the garden hose to the cat's owner. ;o) People who take their dogs for a walk only to let them poop on someone's lawn are of the same ilk. Jerks! A lawn sprinkler system tied to a motion detector or a remote control seems like a good idea.

A la Frost, fences (or walls) make good neighbors. ;o)

Walk towards it. Usually, that's enough to scare it off. Or just do something that will make it want to never step onto your property again. I'll leave the last part to creativity and a resounding feeling that no matter what, you'll end up in hell, so have fun with it!

If you do not want to keep vials of bear or wolf urine in your refrigerator, or own a bear or wolf, a motion activated sprinkler is an effective solution.

they have spays and pellets at pet stores that will keep them away.
