I haven't read all of this thread, but was doing a Google search to see if the prikka strips really do deter cats?

The reason we want to use them is to stop neighbours cats sitting on top of the fence panels taunting our dogs! We have a large garden, so there are plenty of other areas where they can access and escape our garden with natural fencing and trees and shrubs. But the cats will sit atop the few panels we have and the dogs just go mad and bark continuously. Hence annoying everyone, including the owners of the cats! :shock:

So we were thinking of using the prikka strips just to stop cats sitting up there. Is that a good use? I have only seen a picture, and as they are plastic I'm not sure whether they are very sharp?!?

Perhaps you are mistaking this for some conspiracy against your freedom of expression by evil cat owners who can't bear that you're telling it how it is?

Are we all missing some kind of amazing cat protest photo? :lol:

'Evil' cat owners will let their cats out for an extra hour if you are going to be naughty. :wink:

Obviously I require educating on how to post images on the forum, perhaps one of the forum members will educate me.

I also must apologise because my first reaction was that one of our mog lovers had complained because they had found the picture of a cat with a slaughtered bloody songbird in it's jaws a bit offensive.

You are most welcome tarren. :) I can't say I am looking forward to the dead birdy but will have a look and comment in a civilised manor.

I saw the pic before it was taken off but couldn't tell it was a bird. But cats do kill birds, we know that.

I didn't see the photo, but yes, we know that some cats kill birds because some owners don't put bells on their collars. Our cat has three bells and hasn't caught a bird or rodent for years now. :)

Just needs a nappy now to stop it messing in your neighbours gardens. :twisted:
Cats they crap on your drive, on your lawn and in your flower beds, they are vermin.

A nappy would ruin his cool. :lol: The birds already taunt him for wearing so many bells. They call out in birdy chirps.. "quasi" "quasi" He complains and says if I don't remove the bells he will get the hump. :D

if the cats that came into my garden caught the bloody magpies and woodpigeons, I'd happily let them roam around in it... but they don't, they take out the smaller ones and chicks, censored in my boarders and puke on my path.. :roll:

Hi all, I haven't read the entire topic but some interesting posts to date :-)

It can be distressing for people to witness baby birds being caught by a cat, my opinion is that unfortunately this is nature, but I hate seeing it too. http://www.rspb.org.uk/advice/gardening ... clines.asp
As a cat owner do try and stop my cat from doing it.

I wondered if anyone else had tried the cat bib? http://www.catgoods.com/bigcatbib.html

I got one of the triangular ones for my Bengal cross and it worked for a while, until I saw him running across the garden with it round the wrong way, wearing it like a cape. Absolutely hilarious :-D

He's also got 3 bells, sounds like a morris dancer.

I suggested to a neighbour (who mentioned he never goes into his garden anyway, which was good as he's got a carp pond) that I would buy him a super soaker and fill it with lemony water if he did and he liked that idea.
