I don't want to harm them but the options are dwindling.
It's real bad stank.



Have you tried orange peel or other citrus fruit peel? Something I was told once.

Not sure that works with tigers, though!

My dogs have torn up opossum's, raccoon's, skunk's, etc. in the past.
It wouldn't be fair to put a kitty in that environment.

Orange peels, got it!
Thank you SA.

hi VG - If you or any of yor family see them doing it; It's handy to have some sort of water cannon or pistol even a spray bottle filled with water. A few dousings with that & they should get the message.
Nice to hear you don't want to hurt them - Some of the lowdown scumrags round here poison them !
We havel dogs as well, I just prefer cats. Live & let live :)

We (well Mrs Bin) has two cats. Felix the three legged wonder cat (a rescue cat) who already had three legs when we got him from the rescue centre; they think he was hit by a car.

And April the fluff ball. she was found wondering the street in April, and the cat rescue think she was about a year old, so probably born in April too, so no prizes for guessing why she is called April. Thick as two long planks, tries to catch birds on the neighbour's roof whilst sat inside our front room! Just sits there meowing as if trying to talk them down off the roof and pawing at the window.

I like that, Pedal Bin! ^ Felix ~ what the name may lack in originality, it more than makes up for with personality! :-)
I'd say it's impossible not to love a cat with three legs ♡ :-)

I had to dig this up ~ ~ it has long since made the rounds, but I still get a kick out of the caption:

Bun Bun is proof of god, whatever god is and, to the dog people:

I was a dog person all my life and only have the cat because it did not require a deposit.
He was planned in advance and I knew him when I saw him as did he know me.
(would fit in your hand and followed me so close to heels like a duck he got stepped on)

I think with cats, you have to own one, and as with all of pets, you have to get lucky and get a special one or at least not a "lemon", which unfortunately "happens"

Mine stays indoors but is so human he can go out with me leashless on the porches and will not leave. He mostly never wants out anymore except just for a wiff of air.

he is neutered and is not a wild cat, but I am sure he was never going to make it anyway.

He is the apex of sweet gentle and loving.
I call him "My beating heart"

Only a Hawkwind concert can take me away from him so far, and this is a huge worry/problem/concern
NOT a Hawkwind concert.....just worry about what would happen if he does not have me

9 years June 19th, which is the b-day they gave him and is close enough

Oops, forgot to say, that is just too great up there Black Adder. I am trying to think who to share it with it is so great.

Yes nice story. And photo above is awesome. Birthday from my late cat was 11 May 1992. This date still stands on my window (not on glass, on wood part), I was writing it down that year to not forget his birthday.

Yes read that earlier today - Sad and Hopeful at the same time.
Dread to think if I caught the perpetrator red-handed !?
Animals can teach us so much more than other people do.

I've given Bun Bun the full sized bed that I have discarded as I seem to have squeezed every last drop of sane sleep out of the mattress.

I am not yet sure if I will be able to dispose of it. I am having SO much fun telling him how special he must be to get an entire bed with not even another cat to have to share it with.

I am pretty certain he understands everything....

I love it

a cat that has a bed as well as plenty of other resting places and me on the floor.
He deserves it and has earned it

edit; The best part to me is the bed is and will be his least used thing, but he is going on it briefly here and there so hmm hehehe

I don't see how to avoid some sleep while the 100+ updates install...
If I look at that cartoon when I wake, what then....

It looks like the blond is speaking because her mouth is open, or is that an expression of shock at what the brunette is saying?

It changes the humour of the cartoon.

as intended:
the brunette speaks

"Are cat cafes good for cats?"

I was thinking, "Only in Shoreditch" but this seems like a rising global phenomenon. :roll:
