If you live where its not legal to use firearms then check into 700-1200fps air-rifles and pointed vermin-pellets. Shoot-to-kill is a perfectly legal way to rid your homes and lands of these vermin cats in all 50 states. Shoot-to-maim is animal cruelty, and rightly so, all hunters know this. Don't let them parade another illegal shoot-to-maim case in the media to exploit yet another suffering cat for donations. They torture enough cats to death with their TNR programs for that and make $millions doing so.(For a real eye-opener, check out bbb.org/charity-reviews/national/animal-prote... ) Or use the Shoot, Shovel, & Shut-Up; or Trap, Drown, Shovel, & Shut-Up methods that are exploding in popularity worldwide. Both are legal on every square foot of this earth. No local ordinances were violated if it never happened.

Where cats have already learned to evade all trapping methods, then inexpensive generic acetaminophen (overseas paracetamol) pain-relievers are a more species-specific vermin poison -- a method condoned by Audubon, Smithsonian, and National Geographic today. Stray cats have been listed as "vermin" in the USA since the early 1900's, this is why it is even legal to use any vermin poisons on them. For a more species-specific vermin poison check into the toxicity of "Lilium" species plants. Be certain the plant contains the word "Lilium" in the scientific-name (other plants with the word "Lily" in the common-name may be toxic to other species besides cats). Common N. American "Day Lilies" also work, they are the one exception to the rule that the name "Lilium" needs to be in the scientific name. Lilium species are 100% fatal to cats ONLY, even a bit of pollen on their fur that they lick-off will do. If they even drink a bit of water in which a bunch of Lilium flowers have been kept -- that too is fatal, but totally harmless to all other species of animals (including dogs). Much safer for the environment and all other animals than the rat-poisons and antifreeze that cat-lickers have forced everyone into using on their cats. When harvested and dried for year-round cat-eradication use they are even better, as the unknown toxin is concentrated during the drying process (the blossoms and pollen being most toxic), and the dried plants are even more palatable to cats. An excellent mulch for anyone's garden or a ground-up additive for any tins of food left lying around.

I don't see anyone dumping cats where I live anymore. They don't even adopt more than can be kept under lock & key 24/7/52. When driving through the area I don't see even one cat on anyone's doorsteps anymore. I always keep an eye-out to see if there are more free-roaming cats that will have to be shot. And if I'll have to leave fish-oil trails on all the roadsides again, leading right to my IR surveillance system and laser-sighted rifle.(You can read some of the most effective methods I invented to rid my lands of hundreds of these vermin in only 2 seasons, posted here: americanhunter D0T org SLASH blogs/arkansas-will-trap-feral -cats The eradication of these disease-infested invasive species vermin was so complete and effective that cats are non-existent from my area for over 4 years now. Not seen nor heard a single one.)

Leaving ANY of their invasive species cats outside in my area means certain death for their cat, its further existence counted in hours. You'd think everyone else could learn from this simple lesson. The quickest way to solve an unwanted animal and irresponsible pet-owner problem is to quickly and humanely destroy every last one of their unwanted, uncared-for, or unsupervised animals for them. They either grow up fast or, far more plausible, dump their animals elsewhere to become someone else's problem.

IF THERE ARE NOT DIRECT AND IMMEDIATE IRREVERSIBLE CONSEQUENCES TO THEIR CRIMINALLY-NEGLIGENT AND CRIMINALLY-IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIORS AND VALUES THEN THEY LEARN ABSOLUTELY *NOTHING*.

I'm really sorry to say this, but your posting has an air of "complete fantasy" about it, you need a specialist to help resolve your mental issues, best of luck.

If you give rat poison to the food source (mice/rats), they become very lethargic and an easy meal for the cats who then also are poisoned. Killing 2 birds with 1 stone....literally.

How displeasing, I think topix have been turning up the knobs on their profanity filter.

I think the spaying and neutering of feral cats and returning them to the location where they were caught is a good strategy. If they are simply trapped and euthanized, the void in the environment will be filled with anotger feral cat. Studies of feral cat populations have proved this.

I live in Minnesota where the feral cats have it tough. Their average age is 9 months.

Brilliant!!!
Now if we could only find some way of getting the animal rightsers to eat the poisoned cats.

That doesn't do anything to reduce the cat population though. These critters are a nuisance and the goal is to reduce their numbers.

That's a bald-faced, manipulative, deceptive, con-artist's, phenomenally ignorant moron's, and scum-of-the-earth, waste-of-human-flesh, cat-lickers LIE!

FACT: Their mythical “vacuum effect” is a 100% LIE. A study done by the Texas A&M University proved that any perceived “vacuum” is just the simple case that CATS ATTRACT CATS. Get rid of them all and there are no cats there to attract more. I proved this myself by shooting and burying hundreds of them on my own lands. ZERO cats replaced them FOR OVER FOUR YEARS NOW. If you want more cats, keep even one of them around, more will find you. That university study also found that sterilized cats very poorly defend any territory. Non-sterilized cats, being more aggressive, take over the sterilized cats’ resources (shelter & food if any). If there is any kind of “vacuum effect” at all, it is that sterilizing cats cause non-sterilized cats to restore the reproductive void.
