Does anyone know how I can get stray cats to stay out of my yard? Obviously I do not wish to cause them any harm, but I need something to deter them. The dog scares them away, but they come back. They urinate all over, including my front porch, and of course it stinks. They go on my roof, under the house, and are basically just a menace. They are strays, and animal control refuses to come get them. So how do I keep them out of my yard, and no a fence doesnt work, they just climb it. Any advice, is greatly appreciated.

Lesson Plans for 9/17/08:

Spelling Lesson 3: Write each spelling word, and the circle the consonants
Vocabulary Lesson 3: Try to name a synonym, for each vocabulary word
Writing: Pick the perfect job, and explain why it is perfect
Social Studies: Colorado and Resource roundup- learning about natural resources
Math: Multiplication, addition, subtraction, understanding greater than and less than

Hi Melissa, yes, I am back in SD now and catching up with sleep :)

Sorry about the stray cat, I do not know anything too to stop them, since by all means, fence won't work since they can climb. I'll ask around for what can scare a cat away that won't make them go back. If I find an answer, I'll share it to you.
