I really don't see ammonia doing much in regards to a cat. I believe that cat urine has high concentrations of ammonia.

We apply the "three S" rule on stray toms.

LOL!!!!!! That was always my Dad's philosophy on anything extra that showed up and was a nuisance.

Hmmmmm....Can I do this with dear daughter's new husband??????? As my DH described my situation the other day, "The Chronicles of a Wanna-be Axe Murderer."

Charli, you live in Virginia, so should be aware that any animal caught harassing livestock may be shot on sight without repercussions to the livestock owner. In fact, if any of the livestock is injured, the owner of said shot animal is potentially financially liable to the person whose livestock was injured.

You're in a more civilized, populated part of the state than I am, so maybe you don't have such problems. We take SSS quite seriously out here in the boondocks, since AC officers are few and far between, and Wildlife Management and the LEOs don't want to be bothered.

I didn't realize that SR. I'm originally from rural Southwest VA. We only have 2 Animal Control officers down there to cover the entire county...LOL. They don't want to be bothered either. We only had a couple of cows and the old plow/work pony when I was growing up, and Dad ALWAYS carried a shotgun or rifle in the truck. If it wasn't used to kill the harrassing animals, it was used to kill dinner for that night. I don't think the AC laws were so tough back then though, that was a long time ago.

You're from southwest Virginia? What part?

I'm in Charlotte County, and we have one ACO for the whole county. He's pretty much overworked, underpaid, and doesn't want to be bothered for something as trivial as stray cats or dogs.

I had to call Wildlife Management about someone spotlighting deer. They were pretty disinterested, actually. I don't know whether they ever came out or not, so I've learned not to expect 'the law' to help much when it comes to illegal hunting activities.

We call that shining here in MN. The DNR takes it VERY seriously! Deer hunting is a state holiday here!

It's pretty much a state holiday here in VA too, mls.

However, part of it is that some people in this area are destitute, and killing game is one of their only means of eating. So the DNR and Wildlife Management tend to look the other way.

I really don't have a problem if someone is killing something to eat, I just don't want them shooting around my property. I have animals I'd rather not get shot.
