Cats SUCK. All cats SUCK. However, people have a right to own animals that suck. That right ends where the rights of neighbors begin. If your precious little fluffy, or strays that you choose to attract, come into a neighbors yard and foul the property, or damage property, the neighbor has a right to stop the cats. If the only means is snuffing them out, oh well. Cats are one (small) step above rats and other such vermin as far as many are concerned. But we live in a PC world where we have to pretend they are something more than they are, and assign rights to beasts that are basically pests. FFUCK Cats.

pet owners should look after them. i love animals, but why should people buy cats feed them and let them go out and shit on other peoples property, kill there pets and wild birds which they are feeding etc.
i know its not the cats fault they can only be what they are. but they are the cause of the problem.
i have no problem with responsible cat owners who look after cats on their own property, but when they are on somebody elses property they are out of control and should be regarded as any other vermin.
they should should however be despatched as humanely as possible.

Here's the truth. Cats are creatures that often carry a number of diseases that can cause death in humans. Did you understand that Cat lovers? I'll say it again, because you are probably a carrier of Toxoplasmosis, which has been discovered to not only kill the unborn babies of humans when transmitted to the pregnant mother through cat faeces, but also has the potential to change your brain structure, affecting your thought process and reaction to external events. Cats are creatures that often carry a number of diseases that can cause death in humans. In most states and territories in civilised countries, it is illegal to let your pet roam at large. If a dog owner lets his/her dog roam at large, and it causes the death or mauling of a human, the owner can be fined or even jailed for manslaughter. So why is it that you think it is ok to let your pet cat out, where despite your insistence to the contrary, it does indeed go into other people's properties, spreading disease that can cause death. Here's another fact for you Cat lovers. There is an enzyme in cat saliva that causes extreme allergic reactions in susceptible human beings. Allergic reactions can range from skin rashes, itching sore throat and eustachian tubes, chronically inflamed tonsils, right through to severe asthma and even anaphylactic shock, i.e. death. All cats lick themselves, thus spreading this enzyme to their fur, which sheds, blows on the wind, and travels into neighbouring properties, where allergy sufferers are at risk of chronic illness or death, in their own back yard. Cats are cunning predatory animals, capable of jumping fences, moving silently, and yes, decimating native populations of birds and other unfortunate creatures. It is quite hypocritical that people find it ok and normal to kill other pest animals, with poison and other inhumane methods, yet, this common pest is left to roam at large, making many humans sick or unhappy. If Cat lovers refuse to keep their pet indoors, and councils refuse to deal with the problem, then it is morally unethical for the person who deals with the cat problem to be punished for simply defending their right to be healthy and happy people enjoying the outdoors on their own property. I am not a psychopath, I do not lack empathy,(like those strange and sick in the head Cat owners that let their pets roam free) I love all animals, and......any cat that enters my fully fenced property is trapped and killed. No exception, my health will not allow it!

It was nice to see this article is helping many to easily exterminate the filthy feral cats destroying their peaceful neighborhoods. Any man who likes cats is either openly gay, or closeted / questioning. The women who love cats are usually mentally ill, look like a troll, or are both. Normal, intelligent, decent people do not like these disease carrying vermin. Somehow society has moved to bestow rights on this foul and nasty creature, and I say ENOUGH! We aren't allowed to let dogs roam free doing as they wish, but for some reason cats can do this. ENOUGH! I hope that everyone reading this goes down to the store and buys a gallon of Prestone Extra, and a flat of the best cat food the store has, and then proceeds to snuff out one of these nasty cat-rats per day until their neighborhood is once again a decent place. SCREW FERAL CATS! DEATH TO THEM ALL!

I always loved animals...
I have a beautyfull 100 pds berny
But i can't even sleep with open windows it smell the litter... Too much, too bad
If you can't think by yourself and realize that if your cat is not craping at your place then he is crapping somewhere else... Sorry for you but you are too stupid to have a pet, period...
I'll leave a bowl of prestone near some used oil bottles so it wont look intentional...
Bottomline, your cat should not come to my property, simple, i keep my dog on mine, i would like to see cat owners face if my dog would be craping on their grass... Fuck it

I agree... My property... MY RULES! If you don't like what's offered at my place... Stay away! That goes for CATS and HUMANS as well!

And to the dad who ALLOWED his toddler to roam down the street alone and drink antifreeze.... YOU should be serving the time for CHILD ENDANGERMENT AND NEGLECT!

Bottom line is IF YOU DON'T WANT YOU PETS OR CHILDREN TO GET A HOLD OF HARMFUL SUBSTANCES.... Keep em WITH YOU... On your property and in your direct supervision. Itsa big dangerous world and stuff happens. Take responsibility for your animals and your offspring and there will be no problems.

April I hate to tell you, but there was a similar antifreeze case years ago, and I believe it involved dogs. The dangers of sweet-tasting and smelling antifreeze have been known for years. The papers also print up stories of shootings, stabbings, maulings, bombings, etc. My opinion is, if you have a deviant mind, you're going to commit deviant acts regardless of what you read in the paper. We've simply turned into a country where people are abusing pets at an alarming rate; that is quite scary.

Jones, if you are ok to get near cats, i.e. not severely allergic to them, the most humane way to kill them is to trap them in a cage type trap, then, if they are feral to the point of making you fearful to handle them, I'd suggest shooting them in the head at point blank range through the cage with a small calibre rifle. Otherwise, if they are a pet that has an irresponsible owner that lets them roam freely, they will most likely be tame enough to release from the cage without you being bitten or scratched. Have a bit of fish or chicken on the ground next to the cage, so when you open the door the cat will put its head down to eat it. At this point, a good solid blow to the back of the head with a brick or hefty piece of timber will do the trick. I do mean a solid blow, better to hit it too hard than too soft. If you have severe allergies, and have nobody to do it for you, then I'm sorry, but the only way you can kill them without risking your own health is with poison, which is not humane for the cat.
