I've killed so much stuff in my life.
I've dissected the flesh of countles tens of thousands more.
I'll never discard my big game hunting lifestyle, but killing for killing doesn't get me off anymore.
I kind of pity those that do.

I don't shoot feral cats anymore. They are a delicacy for the coyotes here.

Have some 'yotes wander thru from time to time, but apparently they are gay.

Here on the "town" place, feral cats and skunks want to set up housekeeping under our home.
The feral cats beat the daylights out of our old, neutered, cat - so they go.
I use live traps, baited with mackerel - the "unwanted's" take a 1 way ride to the ranch.
#6 shot just works!
Early on, I caught the resident cat ( a VERY smart critter) -shook the livin' HELL out of that trap - and have never caught her again.
"The Warden" and half the folks that live here would have never forgiven me, if they even dreamed I'd shot her. smile
Since "The Warden" feeds me warm meals, and lets me sleep indoors - I TRY to keep her more-or-less happy. smile


I've always been a curmudgeon - now I'm an old curmudgeon.

We killed every cat we saw when I quail hunted. Trapped a lot of them too on the place I leased.

Feral cats should be another genus unto themselves.

Lol.

A cat thread isn't a cat thread unless it was started by the TN Mafia.

Sadly, the coyotes keep the feral cat population at about zero around here. We live next to about 12 square miles of public land that is run over with coyotes, despite MY best efforts. They roam the neighborhood at will and I have seen one cat in the 5 years we have lived here. I do like and miss shooting feral cats.

I'm over-run almost. Dogs keep them outside the fences.
Neighbor feeds them, 15-20 maybe.
Told him all his cats were becoming a problem.
He says "They ain't my cats."
I say "But you feed them."
He says "I feed the birds too, but they ain't mine either!"

I don't shoot every cat that I see, but I won't tolerate them causing trouble and some are trouble-makers. We had a big tomcat coming around our house years ago when we lived off down by the Okie line. I caught that sucker in the yard one day and wasted him with my Para Ordnance .45. I big tom will fly about 6' in the air when hit by a .45 ACP, let me assure you.


MAGAA!

Could just be our farm cats are just lazy.

Or to well fed. We have three that moved to the back deck from the barn so we had them fixed. Even though we feed them if it moves they kill it. I refer to them as the perimeter defense system.

JMHO- I get tired of smelling cat pi$$ and stepping
in turds all over the yard.
The " cat lady " doesn't own any, but keeps food
out 24/7 . That same food attracts possums and
skunks. During the warmer months, you can't step
out on the porch to check the mailbox without
getting a few fleas on your legs.
Yeah, feral cats are pests

I'm told that a 220 BG works really well with a little
dry cat food in a bucket set, or some of the cheapest
canned fish, mackerel etc.
A 160 BG is a bit better for the average sized feral feline

Or so they tell me. . . . .

Lived rural my entire life, surrounded by all the usual stock, from chickens to cattle and all inbetween. Never had a problem with feral cats, in fact admired their tenacity to survive on the rodent population, without getting fed by us.
Neighbor dogs and unknowns caused far more problems than any damned cat. I've hauled way more dead dogs to the back forty than any other animal that bothered our farm population.
