I think I'm the only house on the block that doesn't have a dog. We live across the street from a park and I think there are some wild cats over there.

Anyways, about 3 years ago there was a cat fight on my front porch, and it was gross. It looked like somebody shaved their car on my porch, and there was blood everywhere.

So, I had one of these little ultrasonic gizmo's that are supposed to annoy rodents, so I plugged in into my outlet on my front porch. No more problems with cat fights, but maybe just a coincidence. I did find the occasional cat feces on my yard though. About a month ago I unplugged it to hose of the porch and accidentally broke it(dumb story). Anyways, just a couple nights ago there was another cat fight on my porch!

Do you think these ultrasonic things really annoy cats and rodents or it it just a coincidence that a few weeks after it was broken, another cat fight occurred, meaning more than likely cats were hanging out in my yard again?

Guns annoy cats!

Actually my understanding is that the ultrasonic doesn't bother pets. However, I watched a show on Discovery about felines and it said the common domestic cat has the hearing range of a bat, so they must be able to hear it. Whether it bothers them or not is another thing.

You can also have a neighbors dog piss all over your porch to spook them.

I would think it's a coincidence. I think they only get rodents. I watched a thing like that on QVC and they said not to get one if you had any sort of mouse, rat, hamster, or tarantula. I think they're okay for cats(for people who have cats for pets). I think it's time for a pit bull. :)

Cats don't like owls...

I have heard that they don't like flocks of pink flamingos either. Lot's of flamingos in your front lawn should take care of your problem. LOTS of them. Many! Millions. Flamingos... got it? :p

set the sprinklers to go off at the time you think they are there. If you're particularly evil, stay up all night a squirt them with a hose. :evil: :wink: :lol: :thumbup:

I have this huge supersoaker, but by the time I find it and get it filled up the cats are already gone. Yeah, I need to borrow somebody's dog and have them piss all over my yard and porch. Can't they just bottle that stuff and sell it. Maybe go where they drug test dogs and get some leftover pisss :lol: .

Actually I bought a couple of those bug ultrasonic things for my house last night at Wally World and I plugged one in and my dog went crazy. The package said it was safe for non rodent household pets but I guess it works on dogs and cats too...

If they aren't anyone's cats, call the animal control and have them trapped...

If they are someone else's cats kill them to send a message and then cut the cats head off and put it on a spear in your front yard Bram Stoker's Dracula style...just kidding...

Which brand did you buy? Do you know anyone with a cat? If they bother cats I'll buy one too. Or I'll buy one of yours if you don't want them cause they bother your dog.

the problem is I never see them. I don't feel like staying up till 2am to see them hanging out in my yard. The wolf pisss or the ultrasonic thing at options for keeping them away without me actually having to see them.
