This past year, I got one of them with a super soaker
That is the squirt gun I was trying to think of the name. They work great with vinegar to get rid of cats

If that doesn't work then the antifreeze when I change my radiator fluid.
Why waste perfectly good antifreeze?
Steel wool, fine or course?
For polishing your bullets I presume,coarse will be ok for close range,but use fine for the longer shots.
Here,I seen this in todays newspaper out here,it's about an "Ecosystem meltdown" on an island.I know that is a long ways from you,but it just goes to show you that a cat problem can and will get outta hand in a hurry.
Here is part of what it said,"In 1968,in an effert to control the situation,scientists introduced Myxomatosis virus,which is leathal to rabbits,and the european rabbit flea,which spreads it(cats were eatin the rabbits)By the early 1980s the population of rabbits had fallen to about 20,000.
But the cats were hungry,and they began feeding on birds,threatening their existance.Again researchers had to intervene,and began SHOOTING the cats.By 2000,there were none left."

Now that goes to show ya,they tried everything,and it came down to scientific proof that shootin em is the way to go.

Seems they are workin on the rat and mice problem right now,but I'm sure they will handle that in much the same way

So 3DF, what is the rodent situation at you crib anyway? Around here the cats are the first, best, and last line of defense. I have not seen a rodent in my house in close to 10 years.

Just curious. But if they must go, take them out with a 22cal shot.

That will be the most humane.

My 2 cents.

Thank you!But caliber size used is dependant on your location,the farther away from town the larger the caliber.And remember the larger the caliber,the smaller the hole ya gotta dig.

I would be willin to bet that the owls are doin most of the grunt work.

the smaller the caliber, the less likely you'll get a 1-shot, 1-kill outcome... I'd assume a larger caliber would be best for the most humane and painless death. hit em with a .50 and you won't have a cat to bury... just a red mist and bits of fur. won't know what hit em.

Use a 12gauge,mod choke,bird shot. Course it might wake up the neighbors.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?

First off,this is supposed to be simple fast and effective.How much you suppose a bear trap would cost ya?Pretty sure they are not in high demand in San Fan.Hows this bait thing gonna work?,gonna use a cat to catch a cat?If thats the idea,how ya gonna get the first cat?Shoot em?Why stop there.

who said anything about CATCHING a cat??....

bear trap:

this trap would probably cut a feral cat in two....

I hate feral cats.

PS... the use of a bear trap would simply be a use of creativity and imagination...

Agreed on the caliber.

Oh the owls get their share for sure, but you should see my front yard and deck. My cats leave a couple hundred rodent carcasas as presents for us each year. Thats just a fraction of what they actually get.

The most cost effective and humane way to keep cats out of your yard, is to sprinkle Cayenne Pepper wherever the cats like to hang out. It won't take long. As soon as they get it in their nostrils, they will run like a banshee, and they won't come back! I have used this method for over 20 years, and haven't had a stray come back after getting peppered.

This is some funny S**T

I'm with the 22cal idea

Just remember unless you want to do 3 weekends in jail in WA state its not illegal to shoot a menacing cat BUT discharging a firearm in city limits is!

I now use one of these http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ct...temnumber=90218 then I shoot them outside city limits

CRASH! GLUE! REPEAT!
