My neighbours cat has just decided to start and wind up my dogs whenever it feels like it. It is the most brazen cat who does not flinch at any of their barking and seems to know that if it sits in a certain spot they can not get to it but it can tease them, hissing and meowing at all hours.
It walks along the fence where they can not reach, right by them and they go off it, it is where they go toilet I have a closed off section to my garden and this where the dogs go when I am out, they have their doggy door and have always had this set up. The owner used to keep the cat round the front of the house so it did not come into this area but now they have got rid of their dog (poor neglected thing) they have brought the cat round the side of the house and it is on the side the dogs use. The cat is equally as neglected as the dog was and gets left outside all day and night prowling and meowing as I said before. I feel a rather sorry for it.
So the question is how do I deter it safely and without detering the dogs. A lot of the pre made solutions are cat and dog repellents and I do not want to repel the dogs !
I am only worried about when I am out as I am really scared it will hurt them or even just winding them up to the point where their barking will become a problem for other neighbours. I do not want to harm the cat just want it to p/off and leave the dogs alone.
It is mainly along the fence line, anyone have any suggestions. There is no point in chatting to the neighbours as they are useless animal owners and would probably do more things to wind up the dogs if they knew how much it bothered me.
