Fi-Shock. I had a problem with the neighborhood dogs. Rigged up a metal can and let them baptize it for a week. Hooked up the Fi-Shock, and now most of the dogs won't even walk on my side of the street.
Hey, it's clearly on MY property.

My cats get cat food daily, and all of them are very friendly. Only one of them came here as a feral tom. He just showed up one day about 3 years ago. He would not come near me, but hung nearby all the time. One day he let me pet him, and has been here since. He does tend to leave for a few days at a time, but always comes back. I know he visits other farms, and being a tom, he has his business to do. He is a very large cat compared to myt others, but he is absolutely lovable. I have often thought about having him fixed so he stays around more, but I'm not sure if thats a good idea or not. I dont over feed my barn cats though, or they would not take care of the mice. When it gets extremely cold, they all get to come in the house, but stay in a large rabbit cage because they are not really house trained, and I am alergic to indoor cats too. I just cant leave them out when the temps get below zero, but thats only a few days a year.

Hi Steve,
It seems that people always think of negative things to do, which of course inflict pain, suffering and damage. Did you know that there are positive things that will better achieve any goal in life. A good dog trainer could give you the answer in a minute about how to calm the dogs. Maybe they need some food or water. Maybe some attention.
It is truly a shame to see the cruel and destructive replies here. Replies which explain how to kill the dogs or leave them run loose to be killed. It is a sad and deplorable comment on people and the way they think and behave. It explains why the world is in the condition it is in.
Why should the dogs have to pay the price for the deplorable behavior of their owners?
Most likely the owners are not stuck in Denver. Why such a negative assumption? Hopefully the owners are on the way home.
So the Animal Control is closed until after the Holidays, which you say is probably in early February. Wow you sure take a long Holiday in your area or are you just being excessively negative again?
A radio playing some nice music could help calm the dogs, or you.
For you cruel people who recommend killing the dogs with a gun, or poisoning them to an agonizing death with antifreeze, or letting them run loose to be slaughtered by an automobile accident which could also kill people riding in the automobiles, ..... well you have a real nice Holiday, and remember a man is as he thinks.

If I was living somewhere and paying taxes, I would be more pissed off at the municipality for having an unacceptable response, than I would be at the dogs. Here in NJ, this would be solved with a call to animal control, who take this type of thing seriously. If the dogs have been left outside unattended, here you would get a quick response and they would be removed in no time, and the owners cited.
I'd call the municipal administrator, followed by councilman, mayor etc and tell them you have a problem with their response.

Because dogs train humans to do things that make victims out of other humans. Therefore, the dogs are a major part of the problem. If the same people had parakeets, we'd never have to put up with their inconsiderate behavior.

Dogs are noisy, filthy, worthless vermin and should be banned. No exceptions. Cats on the other hand should be mandatory.

As long as cat owners take care of their cats properly, I like cats, but letting them run loose as many cat owners do, is totally irresponsible and plain laziness on their part too. Hopefully, you're not one of them.

Yeah. Nothing's worse than being kept awake all night by barking cats.

I don't like seeing them flattened in the street, or killed by other animals. It's animal cruelty as far as I'm concerned, as well as laziness on the owners part for not wanting to maintain a cat box, or even care about their animal. If you don't want to take care of them, don't get them.

My cat goes outdoors, but still yells at the door when she wants to use the litter box. She stays on the property. She keeps squirrels out of the garden. And, she doesn't make obnoxious noises.

Yes, that will be fine until the one day when she doesn't stay in the yard. It doesn't take much to keep your animals safe...all the time.

Some cats are miserable being indoors all the time. Some aren't. If you can see past your own nose, it's easy to tell what type of cat you have.

I don't have cats, but if I did, I know it's very easy to get a large portable kennel enclosure to place in your yard, so your cat has a place to play etc., and still be safe. I know this because both of my sisters have them for their cats. I could say that it's easy to tell what type of cat owner you are too, but it serves no purpose.

Those kennels are of no use for a cat which wants to hunt. And, don't tell me certain types of toys will make that kind of cat happy.

Oh boy, not this thread again.
I've seen cats that want to go out. They get near the door and then try to run out between your legs.
But how do you recognize a miserable cat?

Pawing the windows when they see birds or dogs they'd like to sink their teeth into. Racing from one window sill to the other to get a better look at their prey. Yelling by the door, once they learn that's the way out. All sorts of stuff.

LOL, I'm with you there. Seems like we just had this thread a couple of months ago, with pretty much the same responses, so I am out of it. :-)

soon the only thing living in the neighborhood is rats. That is the only thing that can breed faster than cats can kill them and they rise to the available food supply left when everything else is dead.

Perhaps in a city. Here in the country there are a number of outdoor cats in the neighborhood, and there is no shortage of birds, squirrels, field mice, moles, snakes, etc.
