Cat problem - possible stray.

Post  KyleAsh on Tue Sep 30, 2014 12:56 am

Hi all,

Very new to keeping chooks, the in-laws have kept them for years so got inside info. The problem I have is that since the chickens arrived there has been a cat that likes to sit on the top of the run. Not seen it myself, the mrs says it's stubborn and isn't particularly phased by her.

I like to let the hens free range in the back but a bit worried when the cat is close by.

Does any body have any ideas for trying to deter the bugger? Got a dog as well as rabbits so got to be aware of those, but aside from putting things on the fences I'm not too sure, only problem with that is that all my fences are shared and not 100% what the neighbours would think of me sticking things onto them.

Thanks in advance Smile

Not sure whether this will work with cats but male urine deters foxes. I also believe that cats don't like the scent of orange peel. You could always try installing one of those cat deterrents that emits a frequency and some even spray a jet of water.
