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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

The problem with cats is they kill everything they can catch. Pretty
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.
