The problems of stray cats have been raised repeatedly in the past,
but there no workable solutions were forthcoming from MPSJ.

This is good news and I was very surprise by
this pro-active action of MPSJ.
(presumably pushed ahead by Rajiv and his colleaques)

I am raising it as a separate thread so that such a good
service do not get forgotten amongst the many posts in its original thread.

Now I have to put wire nettings on the windows.

DO SOMETHING to curb stray cats.

In addition, i suggest MPSJ to accept all the cats caught by residents,
instead of residents playing 'musical chairs' with them.

Thanks


Have you lodged a complaint with MPSJ? MPSJ will put a cat trap in your house,and when the cat is caught, call them they'll come pick up the cat.

We have 18 traps at the moment, recently just approved decision to purchase 50 more traps.

As long as MPSJ does not regulate the ownership of cats, ALL cats are considered to be strays. My neighbour won't be very happy if his cat is caught in the trap

then it is time to regulate them critters.... o/wise they shud be classified as strays... simple.

having one or two cats is fine but a dozen... what the hell for.... :eek: its not like mickey mouse is having a population boom in the neighborhood....

Well its all about attitude and responsibility of the petowners.

We have three cats in the house, USJ27Resident, and they are name Latte (a Birman), Kopi (a Persian) and Cocoa (a Siamese) and they are all spayed / neutered, they poo in their special odor-absorbing sand trays, they never leave the house compound (fenced in) and they also wee wee in their special sand trays. All house-trained and stay within the house compound!

My problem now is not real "strays" but neighbours cats. They like to come over and sleep under my car and poop there. And cat poo on hard floor is so DIFFICULT to clean! It's sticky and you can't just spray water on it to wash off. You have to scrape it :mad: !

So can I still use these traps?

Spray some pepper on your garden and on your porch, these cats hate them and will not sleep on surfaces with pepper. The other thing is to get those powerful water gun from Toy R Us and let your kids or hubby practice target shooting at these cats when they sleep under the car. After a few times, they won't show up. I even put pepper in my powerful water gun... hehe... and I am pretty sharpshooter too, sometimes hit them so direct they go fly robin fly...

So can I still use these traps?I think MPSJ would expect the cats to be kept within the house.
These days i noticed many cat owners has those multi-storey cages for
the many cats they keep.

If you do not want to communicate with your neighbors, just call
MPSJ to leave the cat-trap(s) in your house and let them decide on what
to do with the trapped cats.

No point those stray idiots are king of the road especially if they have 'protection'. I have sprayed them with water, whack them with a stick no effect cos my neighbor feeds them 4 time a day from breakfast to supper and they come back for their meals everyday to the extent even call the people out to feed them. What I can't stand is they climb and sleeps on your cars as and when they like and my cars are scratched all over including the windscreen. What to do??? My neighbor a good family except for looking after the damn cats.:mad:

I didn't know that, my good immediate neighbor has 3 big cats, they do not cross over.

But one of them liked to sit on my mango tree and sun bathing on my pergola a long time ago but a good painful shot from my catapult solved the problem:D

Not a good idea. A cat is much bigger and stronger than a rat. It will try to free itself and you will end up with rat glue all over the place. A huge rat did that once in my shop.

The best is still a cat trap. It is actually an oversize rat trap. But I don't have a pickup truck to transport the cage with the cat in it to release the animal some place else.

Ha, I would put the sticky glue on a piece of 2 x 2 plywood and get the damn cat to stick his paws and fur on it. catch him give him a good shower and good shave and free him. guarantee never return! and pretty humane too isn't it?

While you tried all methods to chase away the cats, I had seen someone who treat these cats (stray and domestic) as her companions.

If I have time in Malacca, I will drive to Limbongan to buy fresh prawns and small lobsters from the fishermen who sell their catch along the coastal road. I have a classmate who stay in an old colonial house there. I will normally ask him to join me to buy sea food and then have drinks at his garden before going home.

On the way to his house, I always see an old lady being surrounded by many cats at the empty compound of her house. My friend told me she is a weird woman, she feeds the cats every evening with branded cat food and hence it attract all cats from this area to wait at her house everry evening including cats which have owners. According to my friend, this woman stay alone in a big house, husband seldom at home and they don't have children and hardly have visitors.

It is sad to see old folks live in a lonely house and stray cats are the only companion. If this is "what comes around, goes around ", I wonder what she had done in her past life to have a husband like this or what she has done in this life to have a lonely life at old age..

First thing first:-

First, you are not my mate......and if you do not understand the meaning of mate, please check the dictionary.

FYI, you were never my mate & will never be qualify as one.

Also I do not want to be your mate.

Cat Problems.

Just because you have some experinces dealing with stray cats do not mean you know Cat Etiquette Rules & you should not apply your little knowledge as if you are an expert.

This particular obese cat of my neighbor liked to sun bath on the shed cloth of my pergola, so much so, the shed cloth was found to be torn at the corners & I had to spend about $300.00 in
material cost to replace it.

After I shoo it away from the pergola, she went to sun bath on the top of my mango tree where there was and is an opening but she preferred to rush down amongst the clutter of branches
bringing down a few unripe mangos at a time and damaged the branches. This happened a lot of times.

The only way to stop this from further damages was to apply the catapult treatment.

Praying for groons to catapult me is uncalled for and should not go unnoticed.

Donít plead for mercy for the cats, have some compassion adopt them. Make them pets not pests.

For us -- no more cats poo on the driveway, no more meow with max volume like a BOSE load speaker in 2am outside our window.
No more sticky glue, no more catapults, no more oversize rat trap. Everyone's happy and ungkb can go back to his exiting jump Q thread and you can have the companion of all the cats. mate :)

Yes Sir! Whatever you say sir.... and since you come from the backwaters of east coast Sabah and residing for sometimes in Perth, could you care to explain what "mate" means in everyday Aussie conversation?

I used the term "mate" not to indicate you are my friend - never..... don't even hope for it.... I use it like what every Aussie uses everyday - as a colloquial everyday expression... from your earlier postings where you spent nights to try to get me banned from this forum years ago, you have never been a friend. Even those who had white coffee and roti bakar with you for breakfast also told me that you also badmouthed me even outside this forum - and frankly, we have never even met...

Yes, you too keep your distance...
