    I was thinking the same thing R.V.R... but usually how a person treats animals is how they will treat kids. Very sad.

    Nature Advocate, I do understand that cats can be annoying when they enter your yard, my mother in law had a horrible time trying to keep the neighbors cat out of her flower bed, she tried many things. I've never heard of the lily method but will keep it

    Hi, Nature Advocate, I hadn't intended for the comment about plants with "lily" in the common name to be inane. While I did read your entire post (all of them), I evidently misunderstood what you had stated about certain lilies being toxic to other

    This will be the last comment I post on this thread due to the fact that I do not enjoy being in the company of such a mean hateful person.

    I don't like to antagonize anyone but the comment about cats is totally inappropriate for this discussion. No one wants to torture or hurt any animal we are looking for solutions not killings.

    I dont want to kill the cats I just want to keep them off my patio because the are destroying my patio furniture by scratching in it and I have rattan furniture and some are antique and worth a lot of money. then they spray and it smells really bad.

    Carol we live trap them. That is usually enough to keep them from coming back. We rent a live trap and trapped one and let him go and haven't seen him since. I put about 2 Tablespoons of tuna in the trap. I am doing it again this week to get another cat.

    I am so sorry to have caused a problem! I just want the cats gone. The humane Society here in the part of LA that I live do not come pick up cats only stray dogs.

    Carol, you did not cause a problem. You asked a very valid question and what happened was just ugly and unnecessary, I think all of us can agree on that. I am very happy that Hometalk Support came in fixed the "problem".
  • Thanks Yair S. Carol, I would suggest if the local humane society does not handle cats, Which I find kinda strange, perhaps you can find through local animal shelters someone who would handle this for you. There are a lot of people out there that help
