Sounds like it would have to be. :D

You'd have to drink a LOT of coffee to get enough coffee grounds for that kitty.:eek::D

Naw .... those are probably trained pets ... One pet for the stray cats and the other for the stray dogs ..... how else would you have them pose for the pics. :eek::D

Yup, a motion cam with a time and date stamp for taking these kinds of photos.

That mountain lion looks like the perfect killing machine.

you can use cayenne pepper around trees & bushes or where ever they seem to be favoring the most. make sure if it rains you reapply. it won't hurt the dog but will discourage them from using your yard as a receptacle for their droppings. good luck to you. there is also some thing you can put around pushes to discourage cats but i can't remember what it is. maybe if you ask at the garden centers they can tell you what it is or you may be able to google it.

I had a back yard neighbor with a fence, who's dogs used his corner nearest my lot as a restroom. The smell was bad in my yard. I had heard that dogs don't like the smell of moth balls, so I would throw some into his corner nearest me, and the dogs stopped using it. I also have put some around my mail box to keep that area clean for me to walk, which also worked. So, you could try putting some moth balls along your lot line and maybe his dogs will not come past them.

what i heard, & it works, is if you (adult male) pee on the perimeter of your lawn or at the spot where the animal is doing its business, it will greatly deter the problem. & it don't kill the grass. animals are naturally shy of the human adult male scent. may keep the wife away too in some cases, who knows? no, but seriously, i tried it & it worked. use a bucket, in the garage, at night, pour it around, when no ones out & viola!

If you do it at night, what's the need for the garage and bucket? :D I would agree with "when no ones out" though. :p;)
