    Is there anything to put in the yard (without killing them, of course) to keep them away?
    They are really starting to stink up the place, if ya know what i mean......

    I saw a nifty sprinkler at Lee Valley that has a motion sensor on it. When anything gets near it: SPLASH! It was intended for geese, but I bet this 'sprinkler scarecrow' will work on your cats.

    1 thing that will work well is a dog.

    Put out a flyer in mailboxes near your home. letting anyone with outdoor cats know that if their animal goes missing they can be picked up at the pound and they can pay a small fee to get them. Then call animal control. They will put out a trap, catch offending felines and cart them away.

    I've never heard of cats eating lightning bugs, let alone glowing like the Chesire Cat. Very cool thing for Halloween.

    Our cat was one of several tossed out of a pickup truck one night on our road (according to a neighhbor), and is probably 77% feral. She's the only survivor of the litter, afaik, and in spite of 2 years' among humans, she's still pretty spooky. Likes me (who really is a dog person), won't give my wife (who rescued her, nursed her back to health, got her shots, etc.) the time of day. Go figure.

    I bet it would work on teenagers cutting through your yard too. I could move it every day or 2 so they could not find it in the dark. I will have to by them in bulk though. I Imagine a few would get smashed. Could be fun though.

    Just curious why you call him "Meatball Mike". I know it's not because he makes a mean marinara sauce. LOL
