    Does anyone know of an effective cat repellant?
    I had a similar problem. There are a ton of wild cats in my neighborhood. We live in a mobile home and the cats were digging under my house and actually dug a hole in my floor.

    This will probably only work for you if your own cats don't go outside. Go to a hunting supply store and buy a bottle of wolf urine. It sounds weird but they have it. What you need to do is spray it around the perimiter of your yard. They will smell predator and stay away.

    Maybe we should chug on over to namby pamby land where we can find some self confidence for you, you jackwagon!

    One of the most hysterical moments in my marriage (well I thought it was hysterical, hubby was NOT amused) was a trip to a sporting goods shop that sold hunting supplies and they had all this urine. Various species of it and I made a comment about it being like the perfume counter at Dillards and would we be trying out the "samples" that I thought deer urine might be particularly attractive. This said while I was snorting with laughter and bending over holding my knees I was laughing so hard. I got the disgusted look and he moved on to the fishing rods. But not before telling me that hunters actually put this stuff ON THEMSELVES!!!!! Oh, that got me laughing even harder. Needless to say I am not invited back to the sporting goods store anymore.

    Alright, I think I'm going to buy a bottle, fill the supersoaker and spray that danged Tabernac. Wish me luck.

At least it's non toxic!

    Thank you misskitty!! Excellent idea! I'm running to get my bbq skewers now!

    I'd offer to lend you my Newfs, but the big lugs would probably just ask the cats over for lemonade.

    Newfherder: Lemonade? Sounds wonderful....what time should we all arrive? I'll bring the vodka.

    Rattus: I hope it works out for your and doesn't smell too bad in the hot sun (PS you said a swear word )

    myrosiedog: I agree. Ewwwwwwww!

    Gotta get my butt in gear and go get a blood test. Nurses forgot to do it when I was at the hospital last week. And they drew blood then anyway. Just forgot this one little vial. I hate that when that happens. The lab I go to has a little fighting fish named Bruce. Maybe I'll say Hi to him while I'm there. Such an exciting day ahead.

    I know - that's the name we gave the pesky tabby that's been spraying the entire street. Only a Canadian would understand .

    My sympathies on your having to return to the hospital. It is sssooooo annoying when they forget things/lose things, especially when they make you wait for such a long time in the first place.

    I have a neighbor who is really a nasty teenage kid. He's one that's kind of left to fend on his own a lot, and he is trespassing on mr. angelic's land with a 4-wheeler, and acting really defiant about it. mr. angelic told this kid to stay out of his field the other day, and now his business mailbox there at the site was smashed!
