I'd love to see cats come, cut off your balls, then set you in the wild without so much as a bag of trail mix for provisions, and see what these assholes think of this barbaric idea. I can't believe we don't have money for basic services we need, yet still can afford to go out and bully poor defenseless cats.

Google for this complete string, as-is, including all quotes:

"Licensing and laws do nothing to curb the problem." AND "I don't see anyone dumping cats where I live anymore." AND "irreversible consequences"

Therein you'll find a humane answer that works 100%, is affordable by any individual or size of community, and the cat problem is completely resolved PERMANENTLY in less than 2 seasons. Guaranteed.

People who let cats roam free only do so because they think their disease-ridden INVASIVE SPECIES cats are going to live idyllic lives chasing and torturing animals (valuable native species) or someone else will take care of their vermin cat for them. If they realize that that cat will die within hours or days from them having dumped it or letting it roam free, the dumping and free-roaming of cats stops 100%. They can't just believe it MIGHT happen, they have to KNOW that IT WILL HAPPEN. It worked where I live.

Did I mention that you have to ignore every last thing these deranged invasive species lovers are spewing to the world? That's the most important part. Asking them for advice and help to solve the problem that they created and are hellbent on perpetuating is just as foolish as asking your local career thieves for their advice and help to hide your valuables from their daily motives, goals, and activities.

If anyone is plagued by criminally irresponsible cat-lickers, following is a link describing some of the most effective methods that I invented to accomplish eradicating hundreds of these destructive invasive species vermin, by myself, on large tracts of land, in heavy brush and dense woods. The eradication so complete that I've not seen one cat in over three years. All done in only a couple of seasons, all for less than the price of a couple cups of coffee.(If you too also get your ammo on sale, I got 5000 rounds of .22s for $15, that's 3 cats per penny!):

For nighttime the scented trails along all roadsides and infra-red surveillance system was best [you can get excellent IR video cameras on ebay for only $15 today, the 48LED ones being best, use this search string there: CCTV (IR, infra-red)]. For daytime (believe it or not) learning the predator-alarm calls of local Gray-Squirrels was best. They would never fail to alert me to the presence of, lead me directly to, and even point out the exact location of every cat each time.

In areas where there are firearms ordinances, then check into any air-rifles with ballistics speeds of 700-1200fps and using pointed vermin pellets. The newer ones even come with their own sound-suppressors built right-in, being specifically designed for shooting vermin cats in urban areas, the demand for them is that great.

Shoot to maim is punishable under the laws that define animal-cruelty, and rightly so.(These are the ONLY cases that cat-lickers' cite to try to scare everyone from shooting their vermin cats.) But shoot to kill is a perfectly legal way to humanely destroy an animal. The same laws and principles that apply to methods of humanely hunting animals also applies to cats. Unlike cat-lickers' psychotic beliefs, the reality is that a cat is just another animal. It's NOT their baby, their child, their offspring.

You MUST take direct relentless action against ALL feral and stray cats, collared or not. For collared stray cats are the very source of every last feral cat. If you don't destroy them too then you have done NOTHING to solve the problem. No trapping program in the world has been able to catch-up to cats' breeding rates, this is precisely why Trap & Kill failed as well as Trap, Neuter, Re-abandon (TNR) is an even bigger failure. Actively and aggressively hunting them down, employing "hunted to extirpation" methods, is the ONLY way to get ahead of and stay ahead of cats' breeding rates and the rates at which criminally-irresponsible cat-lickers let more cats be born and dumped outdoors.

Good luck!

I think I found a perfect and 100% natural solution for those who don't want to take more direct and more effective measures against free-roaming invasive species cats. Anyone who has criminally irresponsible cat-lickers in their area need only plant lilies on their properties. Cat-lickers always want their more responsible neighbors to grow plants around the perimeter of their properties that will repel their cats for them (from the cat-owners' own criminally negligent and criminally irresponsible behaviors and values). Well now you can brighten up your yard AND repel cats naturally!-- PERMANENTLY

Google for: lily toxicity cats

It has been reported that a cat even licking a little bit of Lily pollen from their fur will be fatal in short order. A cat even drinking some of the water in which a bunch of lilies has been kept is also fatal to them.

Everyone happy! You get to have the kinds of plants that you want, they get to have the kind of pets that they want -- if they take care of it like any responsible grown-up would. Or are cat-lickers now going to demand that you can't plant flowers on your own property? That would be their next and usual move, wouldn't it.

A perfectly natural solution to an invasive species animal that didn't evolve with Lilium species around. Plus it's a good incentive plan for cat-lickers to finally educate themselves all about ecology, native species, and evolution.:-)

Doing a little research on ASPCA's toxic plants lists (Family: Liliaceae).

Lilies (Lilium species) that are deadly toxic to cats ONLY, in even small quantities (even the pollen will do):

Common Name | Scientific Name

Asian Lily (Asiatic Lily)| Lilium asiatica

Easter Lily | Lilium longiflorum

Red Lily | Lilium umbellatum

Rubrum Lily**| Lilium speciosum cultivar

Stargazer Lily**| Lilium orientalis

Tiger Lily**| Lilium tigrinum

Wood Lily | Lilium umbellatum

(not of the Lilium species)

Orange Day Lily | Hemerocallis graminea

(** see notes below)

Lilies (Lilium species) that may be toxic to dogs if the dog ingests enough:


Be sure they are from the Liliacea Family, has "Lilium" on the plant label or are common N. American Day Lilies. Many plants with "Lily" in the common-name are not of the "Lilium" species, and are in fact toxic to other species of animals besides cats. Double check. On further investigation I also found out that all plant-parts, the blossoms and pollen being the most toxic, if harvested and dried (for year-round use) are just as deadly toxic to cats (if not more-so because of the unknown toxin being concentrated), and the drying makes them even more palatable to cats. What a great mulch for gardens!(Or powdered spice for a special outdoor can of tuna.)

**There have been some anecdotal reports of some free-roaming cats that have spent many years around some of these particular species of plants and still survived. So it is best to harvest, dry, and grind-up the plants and mix them into any appropriate bait-foods to be most effective.
