Re: Living with feline noise - what can I do ?

A short aside...
I once made the mistake of physically trying to separate 2 fighting Toms, I managed to keep most of the skin on my hand, but the doctors were unable to save my pinky

Angry cat sounds can be very disturbing! This one never fails to scare the crap out of me - it's like it's got the Rage virus or something!
Yes and I am having two like that at night!

Actually, doesn't "pussy" dericve from an ancient cat-deity (Sumerian, or Abyssian or something)? Or is that an urban myth'

Call the Police and get them both arrested ! There has to be a law against this!

I hate cats.... i bet you got great pleasure out of giving them a soaking!

And that is soaking not stroking for all of you that are misreading this thread.

I used to have a recurring dream about a sweet little cat that suddenly goes berserk and flies at me with hair on end, fiery eyes, spitting, all claws and teeth ... I am absolutely sure that it represented the ex girlfriend of my boyfriend at the time

Hey,

Where we live we have few cats going around days and nights without any trouble. Sometimes one will bring a gift (mouse) at the front door of the building and I believe it is probably El Padre. Big old cat leaving in one appartment downstairs. Nice cat, very respected by his fellow cats, no one will mess with him.

Since two days, we have a new young intrepid coming and staying around. It is obvious that he tries to change the regime and push out El Padre from his respected position.

So two days and nights of meow in all tones, piiiiiishhh and roarrrrrr non-stop. Is it the beginning of a revolution and when this will stop?

Last night, at 3h30 I had enough and I throw a bucket of water by the window in the noise direction. I saw them both running away and I was able to go back to sleep. But was a short break, they were on their cat fight again this morning...

Any idea how to stop this? Or at least maybe an idea for how long they will fight before the biggest pussy win the battle?

(I am on El Padre side by the way.... those youngters think they can do everything without any respect for the elderly ).
I.. am for Revolution! The young pretender has my full support while ousting the old dictator El Padre, Vive la révolution!

That must be quite the pleasure of getting a feline wet. Do they quiet down after they are soaked?

I don't know if I touched them, but they got enough scared to run away and we had some peace for the rest of the night!

Re: Living with feline noise - what can I do ?

Since you seem capable of hitting two cats with a bucket of water, try throwing cat piss on them instead. Your only problem now is getting a bucket of cat piss. Glad I could help.

Re: Living with feline noise - what can I do ?

Sounds clearly like there is a feline revolution afoot and you're caught in the middle.
Very well-written, I wish you and El padre the best of luck.

My Title was MUCH better!

[rant]

just for the record... I posted almost exactly the same thing after my thread title was changed yesterday and almost immediately that post was deleted as "complaints should be directed at the Mod not in public forum"

so much for continuity eh ?

yes yes I know.... Mods aren't always there and don't read every post.. but you would think given the title change one WAS paying attention to this one.
