Other peoples animals damaging your property – what laws?
You could claim for all of that.Posted 8 years ago
Of course you’d need acutal proof, rather than just your word to get anywhere.
Anyway you think you’ve got problems, next door neighbor’s slugs have been eating my dahlia’s. And don’t talk to me about the pigeons from the farmer’s field nicking my strawberrries!No_discerning_tasteMember
A few years ago we had a neighbours tom cat that persistently came through the catflap at night and apart from terrify our two cats it also sprayed urine in several places. We asked the owner if it wouldn’t be appropriate that she had him neutered as we suspected we weren’t the only people this cat visited every night. But her response was that surely she couldn’t do anything as cruel as that to him. Anyway we proceded by super-soaking the cat the next night with the heavy duty waterpistol for about 15 minutes on and off. He didn’t come back for 1 year. Wether that is more or less cruel than neutering I don’t know, but it worked.Posted 8 years ago
If someone else furry sh1t factory damages your property is the owner responsible?
Any idea how to find the owner of a cat other than by nailing the cat to the gate and waiting for someone to collect it?
Not satisfied with crapping everywhere one decided to use a garden sculpture (not the deer) as a way down from the fence and managed to knock it over and break it in the process. I saw the cat do it but was in the house so couldn’t stop it. Distinctive black and ginger thing that has been leaving sh1t and dead birds among the plants it flattens in the flowerbeds. Can you also claim for the cost in broken and damaged plants?

One in my garden is very thick. Whilst trimming the hedge, I turned round to see him squatting about to crap on my lawn, so I went for him with the hedge sheers expecting him to move. He didn’t, and was very nearly a Manx cat. A week later I caught him at it again, and went to kick him, again expecting him to move. Again, he didn’t, and as a result very nearly ended up 2 gardens further down. On both occasions I nearly lost my balance avoiding him as he didn’t see me (he ran away once he worked out what nearly happened to him). Next time, i’m not going to risk landing on my arse and looking silly, so i’ll just go through with it if he’s thick enough not to see a great oaf lumbering towards him, and wants to crap in said great oaf’s garden, he’ll be a furry manx football by the end of the week….Posted 8 years agoOllyMember
i dont think they are liable.
dogs are property, the owners are liable, in the same vein, its illegal to kill one.
(cause dogs are thick as muck)
i dont think cat “keepers” are liable, but you can do bad things too them.
though the RSPCA will have your guts if you do.
cats rock, dogs are rubbish.Posted 8 years ago
WCA, borrow my Westie. Soft as sh*te round other terriers but he’ll hang onto cats/Staffs/birds etc. There are alot of cats in our area- none within 200m’s of our house though for some reason (i.e. scared of after a couple got too close and one didnt realise his turn of speed sideways)….and if anyone thinks cats are ‘loveable’. They play and kill with anything that they can find whilst their owners think their little balls of cuteness are out playing..Posted 8 years agorogerthecatMember
Friend got tired of burying dead birds so bought a large Airedale, seem he now has to bury cats instead!
I on the other hand, use a super soaker with a mild orange poster paint solution, so the b*****d cat owners can clean the b*****d paint from their b*****d furniture whilst I clean up the b*****d cat poo from my garden.Posted 8 years ago
Hora – sorry but dogs are only one point up on may hate scale. I have never heard of a dog owner treading in bike sh1t. I have a Super Soaker now.
I don’t want to hurt the cats* so water is fine.
*Actually I do buit I am a moderate middle class, middle aged white bloke who’s idea of protest is a drive by tutting followed by extreme newpaper rustling so I wouldn’t hurt someone elses cat.Posted 8 years ago
