License to kill gophers

Cat people,* avert your gaze.

One of the feral cats was spotted in flagrante this morning, weighing its breakfast options in the bulb bed. This is the same cat that nearly took out the wisteria trying to scale an eight-foot fence, and presumably dropped a large branch off one of the camellias doing something equally stupid.

Oh yeah, it's on.

Prepare yourselves for an epic Tom and Jerry arms race. Or more likely, Spackler and the gophers.

*Hey, you never know what kind of riffraff you'll run into on the internets.

Yeah, but what will the rats' favorite flower be?

How's your marksmanship? I think a .22 with a scope would solve your problem...or a "live" trap and a lengthy car ride out to the country...

My dad has a neighbor who "manages" his squirrel problem with a .22. Last year he killed more than 250.

Nature abhors a vacuum, and in my neighborhood would probably fill it with rats. So I don't actually want to kill the cats. Or rather, I want to kill them, but it's probably a bad idea.

There is some sort of dog and cat "repellent" that you sprinkle on the ground...never tried it myself, but it may be a worthwhile option for you since murder isn't.
