    My cousin's rabbits were killed by their neighbours cat this morning.

    Do they have any legal recourse? Or any recourse at all really?

    I really can't help with your question and I am very sorry for the loss of the little bunnies :(

    ..but it does bring up something that really annoys me. Why is it that cats are allowed to roam free, but no other pet can? I don't let my dog run around and poop on other people's yards, so why is it I have to clean up cat poop when I don't own one? My dog has to have tags and a harness and all that jazz, but for some reason if you own a cat it can go wherever it pleases? I never got it. It just bugs me..

    sorry..I'm done...back to Dawn now

    annoys me too Shelly, even with Charlie they poop in my garden!

    what would happen if Charlie killed a cat whilst in our garden?

    drives me nuts too we have cats everywhere and they poop all the time in out garden, and when you cut the grass it makes you want to throw up.

    is there anything you can pt down that cats dont like, was thinking of the rubber spiked strips that go on top of fences or the like

    any ideas?

    Nope, nothing at all. All the things you'd think MAY work, trespass, dangerous, etc. generally speaking won't apply in that situation

    I have "shot" a cat that craps in our garden with the garden hose managed to chase it up the garden and well to say it looked a drowned rat by the time it jumped the fence was an understatement and i have got him a couple of time since and if he sees anyone in the hose he legs it over the fence. Put some mustard in a bit of fish one time left it where he jumps down and should have seen it coughing suprised it found its way home with the tears that must have been running down its cheeks...dont come in me garden now.....if any other cat comes in my garden and tries to swipe a claw at Barney then it will get same treatment.
    Apparently pepper is supposed to be a good deterant, put it down where the cat comes into the garden as often once they land they tend to sniff the imediate area.
