    If I had the choice between cats or racoons in my yard, I would take the coons ever time. They are native to the area, while cats are not.

    Niki, trust me on this one... we are not cruel. They'll probably spend the whole weekend inside because my dad is outa town.

    I might try that one. I dunno leave the food outside most of the day and bring it in before the "night walkers" start walking.

    I'm assuming you don't want me to shoot them? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Problem is around here they are pretty populous. No one shoots them anymore cause they can't profit off them. If you could eat them, or sell their furs or something, I'm sure people would still shoot them.

    Yep, he just starts itching REALLY bad and gets puffy, and sneezy(sometimes a little grumpy too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] . He's not deathly allergic but he doesn't like to have reactions to them.

    Wesley, set up a stage, put tables out, put food on the tables, and wait. When the guests arrive, do a really bad stand up comedy act. If you are really, really bad at it, the coons will leave, never to return. Nothing worse than a bad comic!

    Wesley, why on earth did you get your cats if your dad is allergict to them?
    and to leave the poor animals 5 of 7 days of week is just wrong.

    I KNEW IT!!! I thought you were from Bosnia or from one of the surrounding countries because of the way your name is spelt.

    I think you misread something, if we leave outa town we leave them in the care of someone. Otherwise we let them in as often as we can without bothering my dad. My DAD is outa town for the weekend, my mom and I are NOT.

    We have cats because my whole family except my dad love cats(and my brother and I are allergic to them but not as bad as my dad). Technically they are mine and my mom's cats, but we also have to honor my dad's wishes that they not be around him.

    You know some cats are perfectly happy and prefer to be outside. As long as they have a place to go when it rains they are perfectly fine outside and it doesnt sound as if he just got a bunch of cats then booted them outside forever, just when his dad is home. I am assuming that they come in while he is at work durring the day and out of town or whereever. Please dont anybondy start pointing fingers at him and calling him cruel for all we know it could have been his mom who got the cats and he had nothing to do with it.

    By the way Im posting this as a member not a Mod.

    I see where they are coming from, but you the nail on the head it seems. When our cats come in they want out when they need out(toilet). They are smart animals and eventually get tired of being inside, they love the great outdoors and I think it makes them healthier, but I'm sure many indoor cat owners would disagree but that is just my opinion.

    Actually it was my mom, brother, and two sisters. One of our cats is part siamese(sp), the other is...... I dunno and I'm not about to dig up records same for the other one. Anyway, two of them were rescued from the animal sheltar, and the other one is a stray that we ended up adopting. All our cats are fixed because we hate seeing stray and feral cats because they are so destructive to local ecosystems and the such.

    Thx UKC, at least that's one person who agrees with an outdoor cat.
