I'm not about to poison the neighbir's cats, but people who allow their cats to roam free don't care whether the cat lives or dies. I can't see any reason for me to assume any responsibility for the cat that the cat owner can't be bothered to take for himself.

People who love their cats and want to keep the cat safe keep their cat inside where it won't be poisoned by antifreeze, eaten by coyotes, chased by dogs, or hit by cars.

I've had free range cats do multi- thousands of dollars of damage to my houses and I resent cat owners who are too lazy to change a litter box, so they send their cat outside to crap on the neighbor's property.

Do you know the owners?

Years ago, I had outdoor cats. I built them an outdoor litter box, which seemed to keep them from bothering neighbors gardens most of the time.

Both our cats are indoor, outdoor farm cats. They don't leave our 150+ acres. They keep unwanted critter away from our other animals, and gardens, and kill barn rats and house mice.

See above.

We aren't too lazy to change litter, considering we have chickens, and cows, and get a few feeder pigs and lambs in the spring.

But our cats are like super cats, lol. Last fall we found a dead coyote pup on the back porch that they killed, and we haven't had coyote problems with the chickens since.

They don't even mess with the chickens, except to play with them, without their claws or teeth, lol.
