Get Rid of a Stray Cat? The Stray Cat Problem!

Most people get irritated by stray cats. There are those which make lots of noise, scratch the couch, dig, steal foods and leave urine and droppings in any areas of the house.

Cats are generally self sufficient. Approximately 100 million cats are classified as stray cats. These kinds of cats are those which are lost or separated from their owners or homes. These cats are non-domesticated and are born and usually live in the wild. They are wild animals, much different from domesticated cats. They can be ferocious when caged. They bite, claw, hiss and release horrible scent.

While there can be genuine concern for these animals, it often comes to a point when you are swarmed by hungry cats when you starts feeding a single stray cat! Cats can also be sources of diseases such as ringworm, fever, bacterial infections, certain allergies and the fatal, rabies.

8. Use pepper spray or extracted oil from hottest peppers and spices to get rid of a stray cat. Put it around your home. When cats come in contact with this formula, it will irritate their sensitive noses and drive them away.

9. Have a large dog that can discourage cats to venture near your home. You want to scare off stray cats! There are owners who succeeded in having cats and dogs get along. So, both dogs and cats can keep stray cats away.

10. Hire a professional trapper who can deal with the problem. Ask the trapper to be kind and gentle.
