Question DetailsAsked on 5/30/2011

How can I tell my neighbor to stop feeding all the stray cats in our neighborhood?

The neighbor has never done a thing to clear the yard of leaves or debris, but when he needed to move the cat bowls and beds to his back porch he cleaned for the cats. The neighbor puts out several full bowls of wet and dry food which attracts a never ending deluge of cats, flies, large flocks of birds, raccoons, and dogs. I can only assume rats are not far behind. In addition to the cats, the neighbor feeds squirrels and birds in the front of the house. He has trained the squirrels to come and scratch on the screen for peanuts. Over the winter he has taken to dumping a bag of sunflower seeds on the front porch. This has increased the squirrel population and has attracted a flock of pigeons that pile on the porch to eat the seeds. The side of his house is littered with peanut shells. No one will park under the tree in front of his house because the droppings are too much. The cats have scratched up my wicker furniture and spray it, my front door, and the perimeter of my porch. They use the mulch as a litter box and curl up on my potted plants for a nap, crushing the flowers underneath. The neighbor is very very sensitive and difficult to talk to.

Hi Pariob,

This is a bit out of our realm of expertise, but I would suggest you start with your local animal control center. They might be able to help with your situation or point you in the right direction.

Best of luck!
