Don't know if it is available in the Philippines, but here in Az I use a product called "Liquid Fence" Dog & Cat Repellent sold in Nursery Stores. That being said, when we move to the ROP this fall, I will be bringing 2 Wrist Rocket slingshots with me along with a few hundred 3/8 steel balls for ammo. I have also purchased for future use a 18 foot X6 inch TheraBand to make more slingshots from after the bands wear out on the wrist rockets.

Excellent idea with the sling shots. That liquid fence is used in the US too. Maybe that is the same product I saw in Puregold. Wish I had noticed the name and the price..

If all else fails-simply fix them a *"snack"*..

So far so good. No nasty smell this morning. Pomelo rind and calamansi (which I had plenty of) scattered all around.

Wow, this thread is a blast from the past but relative to our predicament with the feline presence on our property and at times in our house. Not a cat lover myself (at all) see some interesting, both good and bad points with them,,,,,,, well only one good point, no rats or mice, rarely a snake but they need to be trained to take out cane toads, too clever. It seems they all come from the neighbours house, some 6 to 8 and recently half a dozen kittens and yes do their business here (never s*it in your own backyard) and lurk with intent. We shoo them off but they keep coming back daily. This morning while having my coffee sitting quietly at the dining table, doors open to the ocean, typing away merrily on the puter as I do a cat wandered into the lounge room as bold as punch looking for a kill? Something to eat? As I stood up it jumped in the air and bolted. 4 weeks ago one came in through the jalousie windows, all the doors were closed and over turned the rubbish bin in the kitchen. Ben chased it off back through the window.

Though not fond of cats I wonder if my neighbours would be happy If I let a few K9's onto their property for a little cat chasing and S*itting in their back yard? Do we approach them? Do we do the quiet relocation program? Do we invest in an air rifle and pop them in with the rubbish?

Unfortunately we lack fences on 3 sides (one of our next projects) so not realistic to add a K9 or two to the family yet. Fences don't stop cats no different to a burglar intent.
We have some 20 odd goats visit our lot daily and apparently there is a 500 peso per head fine for them eating our banana trees, stripping fruit trees, ornamental plants and trespassing (about to tell the owner of these goats the law), If you have animals no matter what type they need to be contained responsibly and cared for, fed.
I noted some interesting comments from the old guard here on this topic, cat lovers like myself.

Cheers, Steve.

Those rules on animals only apply to the foreigner sadly. Citizen brings his cows (I can't afford a fence either plus flooding) to the back grassy area and several times his cows have destroyed smaller fruit trees, an In-law has cows also and his cow stomped my daughters rooster into the ground and when I ask them to make good on the deal the excuse is either his wife would never give up money or they'll nod and say yes and no fix this was an in-law and the entire time his wife was screaming angrily and he never did replace the rooster.

But for sure if your animal bites somebody get ready to get out that wallet.

Note on the cats or dogs... They won't stop those snakes, even though I recently watched a video of two dogs taking out a Cobra in Mindanao, we have 4 dogs, the neighborhood has at least 10 more and my brother in-law has several cats he lives next to us and his cats hang out in our lower patio, we had 6 snakes different varieties including Cobra caught inside our house last year and now I see snake skins hanging from the side of our wall outside, the snake issue seems to appear during the rainy season mainly.

Yes, good timing for the blast from the past. We are currently getting blasted from cats, for the past 2-3 weeks. Is there a mating season for cats? Similar to you, I think most of the cats are around due to the neighbor maids feeding a bunch of them and taking care of the kittens til they wander off. Almost all I see are orange and white. I blast them with my airsoft pistol but it doesn't hurt them and doesn't seem to keep them away. The monkeys stay away more due to the airsoft.

I live in the same area as the OP, Esv. Maybe we can try some other things.

Well firstly Mark thanks for the input and heads up. The goats and yes cows traversing here can cop a fine according to the local barangay captain, as a Filipino is the owner of the land, doubt if we would ever pursue the fine side of things that would throw our name in the mud, slowly slowly. The owner of the goats was in our property a few days ago (self invited) when we came home from shopping, first time I had met/seen him and Ben assured me after some Ilocano dialogue he was just rounding up his flock, advised Ben to talk to him about his goats eating everything that can't escape,,,,,,,, next time he sees him and in the mean time we shoo them like the cats.
The Pinay's here (neighbours) apparently own air rifles and probably other unmentioned things to combat the cats, as they are all fenced unlike us they only need to deter cats and cat burglars pardon the pun. Until we get a fence and one or two new K9 members to the family we will find alternative deterrents, sling shots and air rifles may be the answer? Any opinions appreciated. We will not talk to the neighbour as that will fall on deaf ears and if we do chat and nothing happens,,,,,,,,, as id does here then if things go missing we will be the first port of call I'm sure, best to shut up and deal with it quietly.

Cheer, Steve.

P.S. As for the goats? slow cooker works well I hear.

DonAndAbby, thanks also for coming into this 5 plus year old parade that appears to be relevant to many if not all. 30 years ago we had a chocolate point Burmese, my ex wife made the choice not me. Though that cat was well loved, well fed and neutered continued to bring home mice, birds, lizards and if all that failed bones from neighbours garbage carefully deposited on the back or front door mat. (was probably s*itting in the neighbours property as well) A collar with a bell dropped the kill rate by 50% but still a menace to most of the wildlife.
Though not really comfortable with disposing/deterring of a neighbours pet if it comes in our house then it's open slather. I think I'm up for it.
Accessing an air rifle or as we call them in Oz a slug gun, what are the pro's and con's?

Cheer, Steve.
