Re: My neighbour soaked my cat

Kitten, he is a kitten im not sure what sort of damage the wee thing could have done in his first week outside. He is now 10 months and wont go in there, heís scared of the guy.
He does no damage in our garden, except roll around on his back the lovely wee thing
Iím not threatening this guy at all i have no time to spend threatening him, i really dont know him at all. We just moved here, all the other neighbours are lovely. He threatened us yesterday claiming our cat (sorry kitten) did a huge poo in his garden bed... there are lots of cats around it could have been any of them. He said he will put the full power jet on him. He is not doing this to protect his garden but through pure anger. Iím happy if he sets up a sprinkler system.
(Heís 10 months now but is very small white kitten, he was sick after the full jet hose at 8months in February in winter.)

This man also harassed our Portuguese neighbour, i didnt think it was necessary to mention, but i might as well. He is known on this street for disliking the foreigners. Maybe heís just unhappy. I certainly dont want to make him mad, which is why we went there to introduce ourselves at the start like lovely neighbours that we are

Stop projecting your bad day onto my post its not necessary, Iím a decent neighbour and have no vengeance in me.. i was laughing with that lovely woman who offered to come with her dogs.
Someone on here mentioned they pee around their property and suggested using duck tape or burning cats maybe you should direct your energy in that direction

Re: My neighbour soaked my cat

Samantha

There's a grumpy man in every village. In fact, he may be the reason why the previous tenants moved out. There are lots of strategies out there like

1) kill him with kindness
2) ignore him
3) threaten him with the police if he treats your cats cruelly
4) get on his wife's good side

The best strategy I've ever found is to find somebody a grumpy person respects and befriend that person. It's all about who you know that can make or break you here in Switzerland.

Edit: Just don't become the crazy cat lady or you'll have the whole village against you

In Alsace where I used to shop for bunny, they left the cotton-tail on so you'd know it wasn't chat.
Dad always left a front paw on when slaughtering ours, even though they were for our own consumption only. Not sure how much truth there is to this, but he said that's how it came to be a "GlŁcksbringer" (harbinger of good fortune?).

We are surrounded by people and farms with cats and they seem to think our garden is their private loo, as well as my vegetable allotment also their loo and playground.
I see what you mean.

If I built my house near the end of a runway, I'd expect the pilots to keep the noise down, or find somewhere else to take off and land.

I moved in with (now) hubby, who himself didn't know how bad it was due to working outside of his home. His late 1st wife wasn't much around either. Hence I had no clue either 3yrs ago....


So before you wear your sarky hat ......

That's great. Thanks.

And, do share some more complaints about animals, from your home that you had no clue is surrounded by farms.

Keep them groans coming.

She spent a few days wiping her pussy with camomile tea bags.

Maybe he's mentally ill. Don't attribute to malice what can belong to a pathology.

And simmer down with the tales of feline cuisine, it is not helping in any way and looks suspiciously like a sadistic enjoyment of upsetting cat lovers.
