I don't want my yard to get wet
I just spoke with someone who said that there are a lot of community cats in his neighbourhood. His neighbour was feeding them but did not sterilise. He spoke with them and they stopped - but they don't want to sterilise either. I asked if I might speak with them and he said they are not interested. They kept saying these cats do not belong to them.
So here's the thing - the man who called does not want the cats in his yard. He wants us to come pick them up. I explained the vacuum effect. I offered him the Scarecrow and he said he doesn't want his yard to get wet! I wonder what happens when it rains. I explained this is a temporary measure - it's not meant to be long term, and that the cats would learn to stay out. He said it was too much trouble. He asked if we could sterilise the cats. I said that if he did, would he not trap them? He said no - he'd still do it.
