    I think I have 3 feral kittens living under my deck

    Saw them tonight: 2 gray, 1 black. Tried to hose them down. Only the black ran away. Obviously afraid of the white guy with the hose.

    I put repellent down, because I found some bird parts nearby. How do I get rid of them? Someone I can pay to make sure they don't come around no more (if you know what I mean)?

    Why get rid of them, maybe they will keep a groundhog away... I got one of them and it's infinitely worse I can assure you.

    If you hire someone, make sure it's someone what posted their CV on JI.


    But...you'll have to pay for his ObamaCare.

    I've drawn a red line, and they crossed it. Are power tools off the table? Just so I know...

    Mothballs work very well. But if they eat them they might die. Usually they won't go near them though.

    Seriously?

    Call your local animal shelter and see if they have some people who can come and trap them for you.

    I would understand (in a very cold and heartless way I may add) why you may want to knock off a few feral adult cats. All they do is kill birds and don't have the ability to be effectively socialized.

    But they're kittens. If they get in a shelter or foster care, they can be damn good pets for someone down the road.

    Do the right thing.

    NO Cats make good pets... They are possibly the worst "pets" you could ever have.

    I'm definitely a dog person, but where the hell do you get off making a generalization like that? Cats are like any pet, some can be dicks, some are worthless and a very select few have a great personality/temperament.

    Not saying you should go out and adopt one, but stop being such a D bag.

    I care for 2 of them. I have to scoop their shlt and urine clumps all of the time.
    I've been cursed forever with always having to be around these terrible animals.
    They all suck. They are ungrateful, they rub their dirty asses on everything, they get their obnoxious cat hair everywhere...
    They don't know how to defecate OUTSIDE... They make sure to wake you up constantly when you are sleeping.
    I could go on.
    Terrible animals to have as pets.

    Hahaha point taken, and I apologize for the D bag comment. I just think every animal deserves a chance to find a home. There's crazy cat ladies everywhere.

    Always trying to trip you down the stairs! Dirty damned creatures! I'd rather have a squirrel and some rats!

    A net and a hammer will do the trick.
