We Lost 4 Cats In One Week by Mothball Poisoning — 178 Comments

  1. I wish someone would try to tell me what I can and cannot do on my property. Your pets nor your children should be on someone else’s property without permission. If I have to use something in MY yard to deter something, if you were really that concerned keep YOUR pets in YOUR HOUSE.

    • Fon, you can’t kill a cat on your property in my view but I agree that neighbours should respect neighbours and not allow their cats to wander onto the properties of others. There are some deterrents listed on this site. Please use the search facility. I also discuss the law. Good luck and thanks for visiting.

  2. wow, no kidding! what a bunch of assholes there are on this blog. i don’t care all that much for cats but i do like them, and i have a problem too with my neighbors free roaming cats shitting in my card, but i don’t want to kill them!! i just want them to shit in their own yard! the only good thing in it is that i know karma will kick your ass for it, and i’m already laughing about that because i know it’s coming, and you deserve it!! lol!!!

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts Sharon although I’d disagree that there are assholes on this blog. You may disagree with them but that does not make them assholes.

  3. Taking responsibility for your pets…..
    Because you love cats does not mean everyone else should have to love them and put up with them in thier space. It appears that cat people tend to be ignorant, inconsiderate and somewhat lazy. If people let their cats roam and are not willing to take responsibility for them and their behaviors, then they should not be surprised when people retaliate. I have a very nice house and I work hard to maintain my yard. I do not appreciate the neighborhood cats urinating on my porches, digging and crapping in my gardens and scratching the paint on my vehicles. I certainly do not appreciate the owners of cats that let them roam and get into other peoples spaces. Take responsibility for your pets…. do not be surprised when people take action against them. Its your fault if something happens to your pet because you don’t have the respect and responsibility to take care of them.

    • Thanks for commenting and I agree that all cat owners must take responsibility for the welfare of their cats and the amenity and wishes of their neighbours. However in writing:

      “It appears that cat people tend to be ignorant, inconsiderate and somewhat lazy..”

      …You are generalising big time. There are some irresponsible cat owners. Perhaps too many. But not all are irresponsible and thoughtless.

      Secondly, to kill a cat is nearly always a crime in Western countries. There are some exceptions which protect people from being prosecuted but they are rare. It is also immoral to retaliate by killing the innocent cat. The aggrieved person should deal with the cat’s owner. That is the source of the problem.

  4. for my poor dear that lost four cats i cant even fathom what ur goin thru.did either of ur babies throw up or anything? my condolences for that happening cuz i hate the fact of losing loved ones.

  5. Usupper333 u r a sick fuck.where do u live so i can come to u and fill u up with some mothball crystals and watch u die slowly u bloody douche.ride till i die..hope u enjoy a slow one.ill take care of all u sick fucks on this site.remember karmas a bitch muthafuckas.

    • You have strong views on these people and I understand that. There are some nasty people in the world who hate cats or hate the world and see no problem in killing cats in anyway possible.

      • my views stem from all the sick people in this world that prey on victimless animals who dont understand what they are doing is disgusting and i feel sorry for them also because they had morons for parents that did this too or showed them what to do.these idiots act like we should praise them and if we were to do what they do to another human..they would be in jail.but ohh its just a stupid animal right? WRONG they are the twisted up ones in the wrong and i hope they die by eating cat shit and mothbal smoothies.but even that would b to kind for these ingrades

  6. Stumbled across this site when I googled for “inhumane cat repellent”. That’s right folks – I’m looking for the most inhumane cat repellent possible. Something that will inflict extreme and memorable distress on the disgusting creature that craps on my lawn. I wouldn’t crap on your lawn. And if I did, I’d expect you to be pretty mad at me. So make sure you don’t send your animals out to crap on mine. Simple, eh?

    • Your argument is completely incorrect and inhumane and you know it because you want to act in an inhumane way. To act in an inhumane way is morally wrong. This makes you an immoral person.

      The cats who crap on your lawn are doing nothing wrong legally. The problem is not the cat but the cats’ owner. You should tackle him/her and not hurt an innocent animal.

      You are a bad and nasty person. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  7. Don’t complain about your cats if you allow them to run free and could get into all kinds of serious situations. Doesn’t sound like love to me at all. Its a shame people have to put down anything because of irresponsible pet owners.

    • Thanks for sharing Sharon. I don’t think you can blame the cats’ owner as you seem to be. When you do that you deflect the blame from where the blame truly lies: the person who poisoned the cats.

      • We are cat owners, have 2 and about to get a 3rd. We are great cat owners… we feed them limited ingredient foods from pet stores rather than the garbage from the local market. We are against declawing, and we adopt from shelters. You know what else we believe in? Not letting them roam the neighborhood. Our cats have free reign of the entire house, including the screened in porch. It IS our responsibility to protect them. Letting them roam free exposes them to parasites, disease and poison. How any pet owner cat blame others for this is ridiculous and selfish. An owner should understand their environment and take precautions. If an outdoor cat gets run over in a busy street, do you blame the driver for that too? The only blame deflecting here is from people refusing to take responsibility.

        The original story posted is also very different. Its pretty obvious that those people live in a more rural area where the cats serve a purpose, not just living décor, and that the poisoning was unintentional. But ultimately, you step outside your home, there are risks. For everyone, from human to animal. I could get killed by drunk driver tomorrow, that’s just life. Stop being a dick about it.

        • I take your point Bill but I believe you are wrong. Deliberate poisoning is not the same as a car driver accidentally hitting a cat. Someone who deliberately poisons is responsible for the cat’s death. That is the law. So it is pretty black and white.

          • It is precisely because of these beliefs that you promote that people finally resort to killing cats by any means possible. If you check the laws in the UK it is also perfectly legal to destroy any uncollared cat under all pest-control laws. Your refusal to admit that and warn others only guarantees more dead cats because you teach people that it’s okay to let an uncollared cat roam unsupervised. Is your cat next? If you won’t take care of your cat in the manner that you see fit then someone else will most certainly “take care of” your cat in the manner that they see fit. You have no control over what happens to your cat once it is off of your own property. I wonder how many millions of dead cats are all because you refuse to promote responsible pet ownership. If there’s an after-life for you I hope every cat that was killed from your promoting irresponsible pet-ownership claws you for an eternity.

            You might also like to know that it is CAT OWNERS who promote the idea for others to use mothballs to inexpensively repel their cats from their neighbors’ yards when the neighbor complains about their cats. You people are killing your own cats even with your own cat-repellant advice. Nice. Google it if you don’t believe me.

            • You are completely wrong when you say it is legal to kill all uncollared cat under pest control laws. You quote me the law chapter and verse to prove that what you is true. That is a challenge. The overriding animal welfare law is the Animal Welfare Act 2006. That overrides all other laws relating to domestic and stray animals including cats.

              • Your fingers must be broken. This was found on the very first link on the very first search-hit. http://eprints.lincoln.ac.uk/12674/1/__ddat02_staffhome_jpartridge_Research%20Report%20Cats%20and%20the%20Law%2020%20November%202013.pdf

                For just ONE of the many dozens of reasons that you can still legally kill all your stray cats in the UK. And, according to that document, it doesn’t matter if they are collared or not, they can still be shot to death — LEGALLY. “The Animal Welfare Act 2006” DOES NOT supersede all other preexisting pest and nuisance animal laws. In fact, ALL those preexisting laws supersede “The Animal Welfare Act 2006”, not the other way around. No matter how much that you want to stick you ringers in your ears and whine like a spoiled child who thinks you are above the law of all the responsible adults that surround you.

                Excerpt from the above document, and I only scanned just that one section and found it in the first minute of reading.

                “It is perhaps also worth noting here that gamekeepers and others who shoot or kill cats to protect other animals may have a defence under section 4(3) of the Animal Welfare Act 2006. This provides a ‘legitimate purpose’ defence in respect of suffering caused for the purpose of protecting ‘a purpose, property or other animal’ where any suffering caused was ‘proportionate’ to the purpose and was carried out humanely. Thus a suitably qualified and ‘reasonably competent’ gamekeeper shooting a cat with a single shot for the purpose of protecting pheasant poults might argue the legitimate purpose defence, notwithstanding that charities and owners might contest the necessity of the shooting. Additionally, the criminal law may allow the killing of a cat where the cat was chasing game, in circumstances where the owner can prove ownership of the game acting in accordance with section 5(1)-(4) of the Criminal Damage Act 1971 . Section 5(4) provides a defence of ‘lawful excuse’ from criminal damage, in circumstances where a defendant kills a cat in order to protect his right or interest in property.”

                • You have completely misinterpreted the law. You quote a rare exception to the main tenets of the Animal Welfare Act 2006. That exception applies to farmers protecting livestock.

                  You said: “you can still legally kill all your stray cats in the UK”

                  Wrong. You can only legally kill a stray or feral cat pestering livestock to the point where the cat has to be killed and provided the action was proportionate.

                  This is not “all stray cats” – You really are a complete idiot.

            • Sometimes it is responsible to let a cat go outside. Has that occurred to you? Are you saying that tens of millions, perhaps around 250 million Europeans are irresponsible cat owners? You have a blinkered viewpoint. When did last travel outside of America?

  8. I am so sorry for your lost.Did the vet tell that mothballs are much more concentrated if they get infused by liquids ,then just vapors.I am not sure what the PPM levels of fumes that are allowed during the manufacturing of these items .In the United States OSHA wouls have said guidelines.

  9. Should have kept your f***ING cats in your house..it’s YOUR fault your cats are dead..it’s not everyone else’s job to look after YOUR cats

    • Your comment does not make sense. She is not asking anyone to look after her cats. She is just expecting people to behave decently. A point you have missed. You are probably the sort of person to poison cats.

  10. A responsible cat owner will keep the animal confined. Cats damage the true wildlife, birds in particular. We have chipmunks in the yard and cats hunt them as well as using our landscaping as a toilet. Feral cats….disease…rapid multiplication….do folks not see this stuff?

    Mothballs! Great!

    • I could as this question of you:

      Do you see the cruelty is poisoning cats that we put there in the first place?

      OR

      Do you know what diseases cats spread and how prevalent it is?

      OR

      Do you think there are more humane ways of limiting and reducing the feral cat population?

      OR

      Do you know that killing feral cats does not solve the feral cat problem?

      I could go on and on but I believe I have made my point.

  13. Here’s one for you all. I have a neighbor that has a dog that comes into my yard and barks at me. A cat that comes into my yard and does what it wants, even eating birds that I feed. YET, He and his teenage boys trap cats and kill them. And shoot with a high powered pellet rifle on any squirrel they see. Just heard and saw another one tumble from the roof of another neighbors garage. It’s not eliminating nuisance pests, it’s a couple of hoosiers that have nothing better to do in life than to kill. They don’t even care if any of those cats accidently got out of the house or are lost trying to find their way back home. Some people round here act like it’s none of their business to get involved and others think It’s okay.

    • You are right. Some people are ignorant and they take pleasure in killing animals. It is the sad state of humankind. Thanks for sharing.

  14. I sat on my porch and counted 15 cats in my small block alone. Two of my girls, ages 4 and 19 are severely allergic to cats and cannot even come sit on the porch because of all of the cats in the neighborhood. I have called talked to the neighbors, called animal control, spent hundreds of dollars on humane deterrents. But, they keep multiplying. I am at my wits end. My youngest kids’ swingset and swimming pool had to be taken to my mothers house to be set up because my yard had be taken over by the cats!!! I have been patient, but this is taking my kids summer break away! I am DONE! I don’t want to do it, but the moth balls are sounding better and better. I am tired of my children being sick from all the cat fur on my porch and deck, on my BBQ grill, on my patio furniture…! They even used 2 of my cherry tomato plants as litter boxes!!! They have taken over! I feel I have been patient enough! Now I have to allow my children to enjoy their summer outdoors. It’s not about the damn cats, it’s about them enjoying life while they are small (4 and 5)!

    • Hi, I can completely understand. It sounds bad. I don’t have any great suggestions except to say poisoning the 15 cats you have counted probably will not fix the problem because there’ll be more. Is there a food source near you? What are they feeding on? What draws them to the area? If all food sources are removed then they should move to another area unless there sole food source is wild prey.

      • Michael, it sounds like these 15 cats may be a colony that, ofcourse, has a caretaker since they hang around and seem well, as the contrary hasn’t been brought up

        allizonme00 seems to be using her imaginary children’s “allergies” to disguise her hatred of cats.

        I can only hope that she realizes that she may kill her dogs, children, and other people’s pet with her sick actions.

    • Wow! Two of your three kids are severely allergic to cats? Do they carry Epi-pens for what I presume are severe respiratory problems when in contact with dander?
      You must be spending a fortune in Emergency Room bills. Do you have some to share?
      And, my god, the cherry tomato plants…Ofcourse, they are more important than a living, breathing entity!

      I’m very surprised that 4 and 5 year olds don’t adore the cats, unless they learned otherwise from some hater. If you want to kill the cats, your dogs, your kids, and any other animal (killing a neighbor’s dog/cat will be costly in court), spread the mothballs.

  15. thanks for the article I really love it I tried everything to keep the cats out of my yard but I never thought about moth balls I was trying to do it but now I’m second guessing myself I have 4 dogs and they go in the front yard and I don’t want them to die but I rather have the cats die instead so I dont know what to do now if the moth balls would do that to the cat I don’t want them to suffer I just want them to go away don’t care what cat people say we tried to keep the cat away even called animal control and they didn’t do anything so now I guess I have to take this route if they don’t do nothing next time

    • Thank you for commenting but I strongly dislike your comment as you could well imagine. I guess you put mothballs down to kill cats judging by your comment. If that is true you are a criminal.

  16. Hello,
    One crazy women always putting her sidewalk crashed hot pepper and mouth balls,for doggies,rabbits and cats …birds…. Where can İ complening about this monsters act?
    Please help…
    Thanks
    Jill

  17. people who don’t mind when stray cats, and other cats running on their neighbors property. have no sense of value and are low life’s. How is someone paint job on their car less value than some cat. If they valued and love their pet so much keep those bitches n your house were they belong .

    • How is someone paint job on their car less value than some cat

      Good question. A paint job on a car is just about money and a car which is a lump of metal. A cat is a living sentient being with emotions etc. often very attached to a person and vice versa. For me that makes the cat more valuable.

  18. I am plagued by my neighbours cat. It sits on my very expensive and much-loved car and scratches the paint when it jumps off. I have spent a great deal of money on paint repairs.
    It pees on my grass leaving bleached dead spots all over the lawn. It raids my bin bags when I leave them out for collection.
    It poops on my lawn every night. My neighbour caims that this is natural behaviour and I should get used to it.

    What to do? I love animals but after a year of this feline Hell I went looking for a solution. I just found this website by searching for the best way to poison/kill a cat.

    Help me before it is too late. I can’t stand it anymore.

    Thanks.

    • Hi Asian Fella. Thanks for visiting. Don’t get me wrong or misconstrue what I write but I’d be surprised if one cat belonging to your neighbour caused that much damage. Peeing on grass does not leave bleached spots as far as I am aware. You can protect car with a car cover but I feel you have exaggerated the damage – sorry.

      I agree that pooping on your garden is not good but cats don’t poop on lawns. They poop on earth not grass. They seek out a bit of earth so they can cover it up. So I have difficulty in believing everything you say.

      That said, I understand the frustration of people who don’t like cats on their gardens. I do sympathise. The only sure way of stopping a cat going on your garden is to get the agreement of your neighbour to put a cat proof fence around his garden. There needs to be cooperation between you and him and it needs to be friendly. That probably sounds completely impractical but there is no other way.

      The alternative is for your to accept it or find some compromise. Tolerance and patience while keeping the peace is important. Good luck.

      Poisoning cats is a crime and also cruel.

    • Go to Hell, Jimbo/Woody.
      Cats don’t scratch slick surfaces, even when launching off, but a dog might; even a raccoon.
      The bleached spots in your lawn are likely from the acidity of bird droppings. If you google how to rid yourself of pesky birds, you will likely be advised to get a cat.
      Unlikely that your neighbor’s cat is hungry enough to sort through your garbage. Most likely a raccoon is plaguing you and pooping in your yard.

  19. Most of u people suck and I will b sure to put poison out for your children. Fear and ignorance all over this board. You WILL get what u deserve.

    • There are some nasty people in the world. I don’t know one person who genuinely likes cats who is nasty; quite the opposite, in fact. Your future comments will be published immediately without moderation. Thanks for sharing Marsi.

    • what would you do if a dog did all that to your yard how would you get rid of it if you do everything in your power to get rid of a stray dog killing kids kids is kids cat is a f****** cat can come back and get another one if you kill a kid that’s a true crime

  20. so grossly sickened by these comments.
    to all sickoos out there who think they can get away with harming and poisoning cats:
    Its now illegal in all states of the US.
    The FBI groups people who harm innocent animals for fun as psychopaths.
    The owner of this blog should ask for the historical records showing the ip addresses of the freaks on here who posted they wanted top harm cats.

    • Thank you for commenting. There are some sickos around and lots of them like to troll and be a nuisance to others. It is very difficult to track down people using IP addresses because often trolls mask their identity by using what is called proxy servers. I could get the police involved but that will be time-consuming and distract me from doing my work on this website but thank you for your comment nonetheless.

  21. I like cats … but NOT running the neighborhood. I’m sorry for the loss of your cats but you must take personal responsibility for allowing them to run loose.

    I should not have to manage my property based on the needs of your animals.

    • And, I should to manage my property based on the needs and desires of any bike riding, running, rock throwing kids.

      • And us on having to live with barking dogs day after day and many times well into the night!
        There are far far worse things to live with than a cat passing through your property!

    • It certainly does bring out the sociopathic trolls. I totally agree. They are inadequate people. My theory is that a troll suffers from self loathing. He or she therefore needs to be hated and in order to be hated by other people on the Internet they make comments that force other people to hate them. So my theory is that the troll is a person who has very low self-esteem and in order to find a balance in their lives they have to be hated and they make this happen. Just a theory which came to me in the shower 😉

      • Well since both internet trolls AND cat killers (for sport) are classified as being sociopaths, these people must be the worst sociopaths around

        • There are many nasty people out there. That is something I have learnt while building and managing this website. A lot of them are ill-educated, crude and rude as well.

    • Who are you calling a psychopath? Are you calling the people who put down mothballs to kill cats psychopaths or are you calling the people who keep cats and who are concerned, psychopaths? If it is the latter then I would recommend that you stay away from this website!

        • I tend to agree with you, Donna. The question is what do you consider “home”. I believe the best sort of safe home but one that is enriched for a cat is a place where the cat can go outside safely into, for example, an enclosure of some description. That is my personal preference: a safe but interesting place for a domestic cat. I do not believe in full-time indoor cats unless there are really pressing reasons for it. I think it is difficult for a cat to be totally content full-time inside an apartment for instance but that said some people do make their cat’s lives content and enriched in such places. It does require more input from the caretaker, however, I believe.

        • And what when everywhere is over run with rodents because there are no cats to catch them? Hm? A second plague that’s what. Cats have a purpose in life, humans have none!

          • Most domesticated cats do not eat rodents, Eagles, Hawks, Snakes, ETC eat rodents. We have a problem with neighborhood cats destroying our flower beds, like I said, keep your cats at home where they belong.

            • Cats may not always eat rodents but they sure as heck kill them! Our neighbourhood cats have despatched hundreds if not thousands over the years.
              Don’t tell me what to do in England please, this is a cat friendly country where our cats live the life they were born to and have the right to.
              If you want something to do why not look to your own country where declawing was invented BECAUSE cats are kept prisoners, where many lose their freedom and their toe ends too!

              • I really do not care what you do in England, in the town I live in there is a leash law for cats and dogs, people are supposed to keep their pets at home where they belong. These cats have never had any shots or de- worming done, all they do is destroy property and breed. People who actually care about their pets keep them at home where they belong.

              • Sorry, R.
                It looks like you got a hefty dose of the “attitude” here.

                I’ll never understand why people don’t get that animals have as much right to walk freely on this earth as human animals.

                I never hear the same degree of complaining when it comes to bird droppings on cars, rodent droppings, raccoons defecating all over, squirrels being destructive, or rabbits foraging in gardens.

                It’s always about cats.

            • The primary prey item of the domestic cat is a ground dwelling mammal such as the mouse and the mouse is a rodent. Birds are well down the list of the prey items of a domestic cat because they are harder to catch.

              • There is no reasoning with people who believe all the bad press about cats. Thank goodness for the people who are sensible enough to know what rubbish those biased blinkered people talk 😉

  22. So I ordered – http://www.amazon.com/Willert-Home-Products-4023-2-Ounce/product-reviews/B001QT6EUO/ref=cm_cr_pr_btm_link_next_2?ie=UTF8&pageNumber=2&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

    They are encased in plastic to prevent anyone (animal or human) from touching or eating them. I ordered a dozen and placed them on my fence at regular intervals. It’s been over a week and since I scooped the cat poo out of my yard and hung them on my fence and there hasn’t been one new incidence of cat’s defecating anywhere on my property!!! I am *very happy* with the results and will continue to use these for a few more weeks and then properly dispose of them as per Oubli’s suggestion.

    BIG SHOUT OF TO OUBLI FOR HER HUMANE SUGGESTION! I’ve been dealing with the neighborhood cat’s defecating in my yard for 2 years and am loving that they do not even come near my property any more.

    I did call my local animal rights organization afraid that moth balls usage could somehow be construed as animal abuse, they told me as long as they were encased and my intention was to deter and not poison that I had done my part to ensure that no abuse could occur.

    Ps- After reading ALL of the commentaries (which I didn’t do previously) I can definitely say, some of you guys need to CHILL with the open hostility towards each other. It’s not necessary and makes you guys looks like snot nosed children on the schoolyard. Where’s the moderator on this page? I just wanted to update you guys on the method but I won’t be returning, there are more polite places on the internet I’d rather be.

  23. I have a neighbor who refuses to stop using mothballs on his (non-fenced) yard. He’s been informed that mothballs are a pesticide that should be used only according to the instructions on the package, and crushing it and spreading it on the yard is not included there. There are a few problems with that: as his neighbors, we have to breath the poisonous gases they emit, the (very nice) neighborhood cats can smell it, lick it, or step on it and ingest it, and probably die from that, and it also adds to the serious problem of stormwater runoff pollution.

    It’s really hard to answer rationally to those posters here who were happy to find a new way to keep neighborhood animals away. Aside from hating those animals, you basically think it’s OK to kill someone else’s companion, and that shows that you have little respect for other human beings.

    • Hi Jo. depending on how far you want to go it would seem to me that your neighbour is acting negligently and/or is committing a legal nuisance. When I say negligently I mean in the legal sense. I don’t want to exacerbate the problem and it is far better to discuss matters through with one’s neighbour but if he wan’t listen I think a discussion about the legality of what he’s doing may make him change his mind. I’m talking about the law of torts (civil wrongs). This is because, as you say, mothballs are also poisonous to people and can in fact kill people on rare occasions. Thanks for visiting and sharing.

      • Thanks Michael for replying and for the suggestion. I agree. I am not one to resort to legal action lightly, but since we talked to my neighbor before, he complied (picked up the mothballs), but did that again a few months later, we have started looking at legal options, starting with contacting the EPA and moving on to other venues.

        • Thanks, Jo.
          I have a neighbor who is also doing this.
          I wonder how they would feel if a toddler came into their yard and munched on the “candy”.

        • Good for you. I believe that there is a subtle way of hinting or informing a person that what they are doing maybe a tort or indeed criminally illegal. Just little hints here and there can get the message across without unduly upsetting the relationship because there nothing worse than having an intractable dispute with your neighbour. At the end of the day one or other has to move. Good luck with this one.

  24. I will be following Oubli’s advice on how to HUMANELY use moth balls to deter cats from my yard and garden.

    I don’t understand how her advice and posting the laws where she lives equals her advocating animal abuse???

    Will keep this site posted to the results of using her moth ball method.

  25. Dahlia actually you are wrong at least where I live you would be.

    Sec. 4-40. Running at large (leash law)
    It shall be unlawful for any person who owns, keeps, harbors or other wise has control over any animal, livestock, fowl, reptiles or wildlife within the city to allow or permit such animal to run or be at large within the city.

    The prohibition against an animal running at large does not apply to cats.

    “At large” means unconfined to the premises of the owner by a suitable and substantial fence of sufficient strength and height to prevent escape therefrom or secured on such premises by a leash of sufficient strength to prevent escape from the premises and so arranged that the animal will remain upon the premises when the leash is stretched to full length in any direction.

    Sec. 4-44. Nuisance animals
    A nuisance animal shall be defined as any animal which commits any of the acts listed herein:
    1.Harasses or chases pedestrians, passersby or passing vehicles, including bicycles; or
    2.Makes unprovoked attacks on other animals of any kind; or

    No the at large bit doesn’t apply to cats but everything else does and that includes defecating on others property. If an animal does this you are well within your rights to call animal control or trap said animal and hand it over to animal control.

    • 6. ‘barks, whines, howls’ are all what we have to put up with from peoples dogs around here, day and night, yet any complaint sets off a long chain of a noise diary for months and a court case which causes bad feeling amongst neighbours. So people put up with the barks, whines and howls, those of us who don’t have dogs are forced to live with the noise by those who do!
      Then some people have the nerve to say cats are a nuiscance…..crazy!!!

      • Some people LOL not to be argumentative but it’s this isn’t just “some people”, this is the agreed upon ie it passed legislation and was passed into law where I live.

        Feel free to disagree with it and not live in Hurst Tx but I bet your municipality has similar laws.

        • I live in England where animals are loved as part of the family and the pet welfare law says they should live the lives they were born to live and those of us who truly do love them respect that. It’s not the dogs faults they are noisy, it’s the people who leave them long hours alone or have them living outside, the people with no thought to others and there are people like that worldwide.
          Cats here have a roaming commission, they are not kept prisoners and they are never declawed. Good cat caretakers ensure our cats are not a nuiscance to those who don’t like them, by making our home and garden cat friendly and keeping out cats in after dark.

          • Different locales will have different laws about pets and their owners responsibilities, different cultures will have differ sensibilities about what is allowed and what isn’t regarding their pets, to stoop to disparaging another’s cultures is childish, rude and boorish.

            S I am done with this conversation, if all you can do is imply that people in the US do not love and properly care for their animals then there is no point to continuing because your augment is at an ad hominen state and doesn’t deserve any further responses.

            Good day 🙂

            • lol good day and good bye to you too seeing as you’ve spat your dummy and we can’t have a sensible debate, thanks but no thanks for the link.

              • Rolling on the floor laughing my @ss off at whatever the heck “spat my dummy” is.

                Sorry I just couldn’t resist commenting on your drivel but I should follow mu debate coach’s advice – Arguing with a fool only makes two.

                Ciao

                Ps – Deleting this from my blog roll as I have more to do with my life than arguing on the internet. Have a nice day and do try do find something more productive to do with your day/life than poorly arguing with stranger on the internet!

              • lol Dee yes it has to be a relative of his, they seem to be a family of cat hating Nellie know alls, all talk and no action lol sitting there and quoting laws.
                Does no one say ‘spat their dummy’ over there? lol

                • It is a worldwide business because if a dictator in one country abuses the citizens of his country the world criticises and sometimes acts to stop it. The plight of the tiger in India is a world problem. Therefore declawing and inadequate laws which represent a culture is also open to criticism by people from other countries especially as today, with the internet, there are no boundaries.

          • We love our pets as family, therefore we keep them safe at home where they belong. I walk our dogs on a leash and they have a large privacy fenced back yard to play in when they go outside..

            • In other words dogs can go out but cats have to be prisoners for life for committing no crime, well if you think that’s acceptable then there is no more to be said.

              • If you have a place for your cat to go out doors and are able to keep them in their own yard, they should not be wandering the neighborhood..

              • Well we personally have a large cat friendly garden with a fresh patch of earth dug for our cats toileting, a home built catnasium with sun roof, tall trees to climb and grass to nibble. If they go out of the garden via their cat size tunnel to freedom, they go to the embankment behind our houses where there are more trees and scrub and is a cats paradise, fenced off from danger and with lots of mice. We have a cat friendly home and they are free to come and go as they please apart from after dark and if no one is going to be home.
                You see, this is England where we make our cats lives as natural and happy as possible.
                Humans took cats from the wild many moons ago and have taken enough from them already, although of course in our country we NEVER took their toe ends as many do in your country!
                You need to learn a bit more about our country before trying to tell us what to do, we have our Pet Welfare Law and our Cats Protection organisation, we care for our cats deeply.
                Maybe you should turn your attention to dogs shoved outside to bark all day long, that gets the goat of the residents in our neighbourhood, dogs are a nuiscance, not cats. The law says dog owners must clean up after their dog on public ground. Do they? Yes responsible owners do but many do not, at least cats bury their own excreta!
                There are good and bad cat caretakers just as their are good and bad dog owners! So don’t assume we are all bad caretakers at PoC because you are very wrong.

  26. For all the human scumbags here who are bitching about cats in their yards, and suggesting cruel, malicious and criminal ways of getting rid of them. Newsflash! NATURE does NOT belong to you. You may have legal control, in some ways, over the land you own; but that does not give you the either the moral or the legal right to do whatever the hell you want with the plants and animals that make their homes On The Same Land. In some places you are not allowed to chop down certain species of trees, even if they are growing on your land, without a special permit that may take a long time to get or may be totally denied.

    With regard to cats, specifically: There is NO law that makes it a crime for cats to wander into people’s yards. There is no law (in most places) that says that people have to keep their cat companions imprisoned indoors. Cats are semi-wild animals, and they are as much at home in Nature as the squirrels and birds and opossums and other wild creatures that also visit our yards. There are some safe ways to discourage and repel cats – mainly by planting plants that they don’t like the smell of. But they may still visit your yard anyway.

    You can also rent a cat trap from the Humane Society or local animal control, and in most places the cat will be neutered or spayed, given some shots to protect them from diseases, and then released back into the same general area. So they may come back and visit your yard again. And if they do, then LEGALLY there is Not One Damn Thing You Can Do About It. Killing cats with poison or guns or any other way is a CRIME in every state in America, as well it should be. And if anyone ever knows of anyone harming cats in any way, please report them to both animal control and the police, so that they can be punished by law for their crimes.

    Cats are not like dogs. You can’t keep them enclosed in your own back yard, because they can climb fences, trees and pretty much anything else. Cats are part of Nature and the local ecology — just like sparrows and squirrels are. Learn to live in harmony with Nature — including the cats that make the great outdoors their home — or else go live in an apartment without any yard or outdoor balcony; where you can safely be isolated from stray cats and everything else in Nature. Or perhaps, for some of you, being isolated away from cats and from Nature at a state penitentiary would be more fitting.

    • Dahlia, excellent comment. Thank you very much for saying the sort of thing is that I like to say. It is only people who construct fences and create countries with national boundaries. The cat both wild and domestic have no concept of these barriers. It is the same with the door. Cats don’t understand doors. The people who like to kill cats, particularly by shooting them, say it is legal to shoot stray cats in America. This has to be incorrect because it must be in breach of animal cruelty laws. The problem is that law enforcement struggles to enforce the law against people who like to kill cats.

    • There is a leash law cats as well as dogs, we have a problem with cats digging up our plants and scratching our vehicles, we do not have cats. It is against the law to let any kind of pet roam around destroying other peoples property. I do not want to harm the cats but am sick of them .

      • Once again, it is about people, this problem. All people who have neighbours should behave responsibly towards their neighbours in all respects. Unfortunately the domestic cat is in the middle between neighbours who may disagree about things and it is often the cat who gets it in the neck when really the problem should be resolved entirely between people and the domestic cat should be out of it.

    • Our property does belong to us,we would never hurt an animal but people should take responsibility for their pets and keep them at home.

  27. A Happy Moth Ball Middle Ground

    After much reading about moth balls and cats (your site came up first, I am deeply sorry about your cats) I have found that YES you can use moth balls without risk of poisoning cats or other creatures.

    There are moth ball products out there that come on plastic vented containers which allows sublimation of the substances but denies physical access to it. If you cannot afford those, use a toilet paper roll, ends folded over with holes poked in it, to allow sublimation yet deny physical access.

    After the use of many failed remedies to deter feral and stray cats from spraying and defecating in my yard, I found your site and thought there has to be another way to use moth balls, there has to be a way to use it safely because it does seem to be the ONLY thing that works to deter cats from doing their business where I garden and my child plays.

    I write to let you know you can use moth balls responsibly to deter cats and other creatures without harming or poisoning them.

    As for those who would use moth balls to poison, I can well understand their frustration, rage and feelings of impotence at being unable to deter these felines but to be so unimaginative as to not be able to think of an alterative way to use moth balls other than to poison, they are sad examples of sadistic human beings.

    Moth balls have been the only remedy that works for me to rid myself of spraying cats and I just wanted to drop you a note in memory of your cats and let others who may visit this site that there is a safe and humane way to use moth balls.

    Blesses be upon you and your cats.

    • Hi Oubli, thanks for the input. You do realise that mothballs contain a nasty chemical that also harms people just by inhaling the stuff. So if you have mothballs around your home or under your home you’ll be inhaling the fumes. If a person has lots of mothballs in their home (It seems you don’t) it can kill the person. There are cases of this.

      • Not in my home or under the house, I only needed to use a dozen or so for a few weeks in my garden. Afterwards I disposed of all of them at my local environmental collection center where they also dispose of hazardous materials. I wouldn’t mess around with something as dangerous as moth balls without fully researching it and that includes storage and disposal but thanks for your input.

  29. My brothers girl friend of almost 20 years died the other day and I am out to prove that it is connected with the mothballs that she had all in her house and outside to keep away bugs and snakes. Infact, just a few months before her death my brother was very confused and still doesn’t remember getting into a truck and was involved in an accident that caused him to be in ICU and a specialty hospital for almost six weeks. When I was finally able to get him to his house I couldn’t stay but a short time because the smell of mothballs would cause me to have migrains. Finally I informed my brother that he had to come to my car and we would stay in a hotel for him to clean up before I took him to his appoinments because he even smelt like mothballs. I kept telling him that when I got home I was going to check to see what health problems this could cause and I was shocked and now I am sure that is what cause Brenda to passaway. I wish I would have known sooner and just maybe it would have made a bigger difference. At least I have informed that neighborhood to have all the mouthballs clean up correctly and let their doctors know what they have been exposed to. Sorry for your loss!!!

    • This is shocking, Joyce. Mothballs are nasty chemicals – pesticides that can cause serious health problems in people. I am sorry to hear of your tragic loss. Unnecessary. Awful.

    • so sorry for your lost thats so horrible. Ive lost my cat in the last few days and i would be in a bigger mess if 4 of my babies died. hugs

  30. Please people keep your cats inside. There are 3 signs up looking for missing cats here. There is a “Fisher-cat” roaming our area – it’s a nasty animal that hunts and kills cats, fox, dogs, etc. and there is actually someone whose job is to find and trap this ugly animal.

    The Shelter statistics said that cats that are “Outdoors Cats” on average have a life expectancy of only 4 years, whereas cats that live Indoors have an average life expectancy of 14 years. Obviously, when averaging outdoor cats they are including various dangers such as getting hit by cars and being attacked by other cats, raccoons, etc

    As for those who have written on here that their clear intent is to buy or use mothballs (or antifreeze or any other poison) to kill a cat or animal or use the mothballs as a means to kill, might want to 1st check the animal abuse law in their state: many many states consider poisoning an animal to be ILLEGAL and also brings Fines and Jail time. You might want to change your mind.

    My cat is indoors and I know the laws have been getting even more strict (as I feel they should).
    I know you are angry but this is not going to solve anything. Heck you just wrote/printed out for the world to see, your intentions.

    • I understand your argument. Fair argument. In the US there are far more wild animals that can hurt roaming cats whereas in the UK there really are none. The fox rarely attacks a cat and the fox is the only animal that is a danger to the cat in practice (except for the odd human with an air gun or poison). This os probably the main reason why people in the UK let their cats outside routinely.

  31. It’s very cruel to deliberately put any sort of poison down to harm or kill any living creature and I hope that one day the conscience of people who do that pricks at them and they suffer dreadful guilt, because what’s done can’t be undone, taking life is wrong!
    There is always another solution, the murder of innocent creatures is never a solution.
    Poisoning causes a terrible death and anyone who thinks it’s acceptable is certainly not humane which is what ALL humans are SUPPOSED to be ….thus the word HUMANE.

  32. I am so very sorry to read of your losses. I have a house cat that never leaves the house. I was trying to deter some outside cats from using underneath my back deck as a litter box and the maintenance man offered to throw a few boxes of moth balls under there. I had no idea this would possibly kill anything. I need to find out how long it takes the moth balls to disinegrate. I would feel terrible to cause the death of any cat even though cats around here are not supposed to run loose.

    • Mothballs contain a nasty chemical called Naphthalene, which is also detrimental to human health (heavy exposure: fatigue, lack of appetite, restlessness and pale skin). I’d try and fish the box out of there and get rid of it. They probably have a long life perhaps about one year or more – not sure.

      • Thank you. Unfortunately after speaking with the maintenance man, he sprinkled a granulated box of some snake be gone product from home Depot that also deters skunks and cats. Deck is low to get under and it’s granulated into the ground by now.

  33. I had a neighbor get mad at me because I asked her to keep her cat from pooping in my garden plot. She could easily do this by monitoring her cat when it is outside, but she refuses to do so. That plot is how I provide 75% of my food. I literally need it to survive. This same woman asks me not to bring my ON LEASH dog to the garden because she doesn’t want it to scare the cat. I am an animal lover, but if it comes to me or the cat, the cat goes.

    It is the animal’s OWNER who is responsible if they freely allow their animals to roam and something happens to them. Roaming and feral cats have decimated the songbird population and they are a nuisance to those in whose gardens and yards they crap. People say they love their animals, yet they abdicate responsibility and complain when the results are negative, when someone does something which harms their supposedly loved animals. Dave warned his neighbor that the animals needed to stay off his – HIS – property. The neighbor ignored him and did not take care of her cats. He was compassionate by removing them, and not just poisoning them. I think a big reason people don’t like cats is because of irresponsible cat owners.

    I am about to put mothballs in my garden because I need to eat. The cat does not need to roam. If the cat eats them, so be it.

    • Thanks for the visiting Karen. I understand your point of view. If my cat wandered onto someone’s garden and they complained to me about it, I’d do something to stop my cat going to that place. It is common sense because the cat is in jeopardy of being hurt and you don’t want to upset your neighbour.

      Although it may be legal in some states to do what you propose, in the UK poisoning cats who roam onto your property is a crime under the Animal Welfare Act 2006. It does not matter if the cat is trespassing or not.

      Secondly, the cat has not decimated songbird populations. That is propaganda put out by the bird conservationists. Trust me on that one. I have done a lot of work on this subject.

      I would ask you to reconsider putting mothballs down. What about another chat with the cat’s owner? Try and find a solution between humans without hurting the innocent cat. In any case she may just get another one. You are not sorting out the cause of the problem.

  34. There is only one thing worse then an irresponsible dog owner and that is an irresponsible cat owner who lets their cat roam free to kill other animals for sport. My neighborhood was being over run with free roaming pets. Sadly, my yard become a boundary war between all the cats and they began spraying. It got so bad I couldn’t open my windows in the summer. They also jumped on the hood of my wet and very expensive sports car and slide down dragging their claws causing thousands in damage. I spoke with the cat owners and they basically told me TOUGH, get used to it they are cats. I then posted a notice on the community bulletin board that the cats would be taken to the pound if the owners didn’t keep them inside. They ignored that. I bought an animal trap baited with catnip and placed it under my porch, far from my property line. Caught 3 cats in the first 2 days and off to the pound they went. Well it turns out the owners went and got them back. Caught the same 3 cats within 4 days. Off to the pound again. Had an angry exchange with one of the cat owners who told me it was too bad my car got scratched and her car with scratched too and you just have to live with it. I warned her if her cat was caught again she would never see it again. I then caught the same 3 cats again as well as 5 others. Took them to work with me 40 miles away and dropped them at a pound she would never look in. Never to be seen by the owners again. Suddenly the owners started keeping their new kittens in their homes, except Ms. you have to live with it. I caught her new kitten and she showed up my house begging me to tell me where her kitten was. I told her I didn’t know even though it was in the cage in the back of my truck while I was speaking to her. Off it went to work with me it went. No more cats, the smell in my yard dissipated, I was able to open my windows in the summer and no more scratches on my car. Moral to the story, keep your freaking pets in you house.

    • Dave, I understand your feelings. Thanks for visiting and sharing your views. If you don’t like cats or dogs you don’t want them in your yard or on your car. I understand that. Even though I love animals I do believe that people who keep cats and dogs should be highly responsible in looking after them both for the cat’s welfare and to respect the views of other people. If a person came to me and said my cat had scratched their car I would feel obliged to fix the problem and prevent it happening again.

      A lot of people don’t mind cats roaming through their yard but some do and we should respect their views. However, that does not give you the right to harm or steal them. Technically, you may have stolen someone’s property. That may have been a crime. However, I understand your frustration.

    • Dave, sorry no i don’t understand your feelings, i mean how can you have any, this is cowardly and cruel. not good creative problems solving at all. your selfish narrow minded. if it were my cats you wouldt be reading this right now, trust me

  35. Cats dont s#it or pee in their own yards they use someone elses.. I love how people on here defend cats and say what if kids find the mothballs.. Again people and parents shouldnt let there kids or cats roam onto peoples property..parents really shouldnt let your kids walk around and eat little candy shape balls off the ground..sounds like lazy poor parenting from the same people who wont take care of the cats they own as well..got about 20 nasty cats in front of my new house we just bought and remodeled in Cleveland.. The nasty people across the street keep feeding them.never clean up after them or take care of them.. I bought 2 big boxes of mothballs ,crushed them into dust and put it all over my front yard and flower boxes.. The whole street smells like cat piss once it got worm out.. Thanks for posting this I am so glad mothballs will clean up the problem. I have a dog and kids and my dog is walked and cleaned up after and my kids were taught as babies not to eat off the floor ground or anyplace other than a plate..and my kids or dog or not..if they was stupid enough to eat something laying on the ground then they will learn a lesson in life…(listen to your parents) But im not going to deal with these nasty cats anymore than someone would put up with..my dog in their yard.a rat ,bat or snake in the yard..bees or any other rodent..wild cats are nasty and need to be delt with..Im gonna be happy when they” leave” Im sure the rest of the neighborhood will to..all except filthy Mcnasty across the street..

    • If you were a decent person you’d find a more decent way of dealing with this. But you don’t. Therefore you are a nasty person. No, you are worse than that. You’re a sh*t and a cat poisoner. I’d love to meet you and do something as nasty to you.

      nasty cats

      Cats are not nasty. Humans like you are.

    • pittbull how do you clean up the dog piss you dog puts on your neighbors property and kills their grass? You’re just as bad as the cat owners. I had dead spots on my lawn because one dog would piss on a spot, then another dog would piss on the same spot. Why do I have to have dead spots on my lawn because of jack holes like you think they “clean up” after their dogs. God you pet owners are morons. Keep your pets doing their business on your own yards.

      • Have you considered building a cat and dog proof fence around your yard? Perhaps you don’t want to spend money to fix what you see as someone else’s problem.

        • EXCELLENT IDEA MICHAEL. Instead of feeding my kids, I’ll spend money on a fence to keep out animals that THE OWNERS should love enough to care for. I suppose I should mail them a check so they can feed them and buy them litter too? WOW…..just….wow.

          • Cat owners should act responsibly, I agree. If a person is forced to take steps that’s the way it is. The key is to try and avoid neighbor disputes. You are overreacting. You have that inner anger that all sport hunters have which is unpleasant.

  36. joyce….SO SORRY for that horrible couple of weeks you had to go through with the loss of all the cats! your two cats looked adorable!!! i’m getting fresh mulch soon, & I was thinking about getting moth balls…advice of a neighbor!! thanks to your horrible story—I won’t get any!!! I feed many strays & they loved the mulch in this past fall season!! but, I would NEVER put out anything to harm any animals!!! they cannot tell us where they hurt & if they feel bad!!! i’m glad I read your story!!! thank you & god bless you for caring about god’s creatures!!

  37. Cats are useless animals. We had a beautiful robins nest on our front porch and we took great pleasure in watching the mother feed the young ones. Guess what..a cat attached the nest and killed the young babies. Every day the mother robin comes back to see if she can find her young ones…so sad. Cats have attributes that I don’t like in humans. They are selfish, only approach their owners when they want something and don’t portray any of the loyalty to their owners that a dog does. Get rid off all the cats and as far as I am concerned, all those hardcore cat lovers out there obviously condone their creatures habits are not very nice people themselves. Without any cats the world would be a much better place.

    • They are selfish..

      Cats behave like all animals including the human animal so if you criticise the cat for being selfish you’ll have to criticise all of creation. Do you think birds are less selfish? Cats are sometimes altruistic. They help a mother cat (a queen) give birth successfully and look after another cat’s kittens. Cats are no different to other animals.

      You are practicising speciesism – preferring the bird to the cat. That is your choice but it’s unfair. Your comment is based on a dislike of cats and is therefore biased. As it is biased it is not worth much. Thanks for visiting though.

  38. i have wild cats and they go in my neighbors yard and she hates them sees been putting mothballs all over i can even smell them and one of them vanished about the same time Is there a way she can get introuble for doing this. or what can i do

    • It is cruel and wicked to try and poison wild cats. It is probably illegal. Check the local laws. I’ll have look myself later and make another comment. Where are you, by the way? For me, your neighbour is an idiot and she needs to be stopped.

      In the UK, her behaviour would be a crime.

      • we are in lancaster new york thank you for the info ill see what i can do and prove vidio camers can do alot

    • How about keeping your cats in your own yard or home? You obviously don’t respect your neighbors property. You are a moron, a typical cat owner.

    • You have cats that go in the neighbors yard. WILD CATS. What part of inconsiderate don’t you get? If he came over and left a duece on your lawn or peed on your porch, would you keep cleaning it up because it’s cruel to keep him inside? NOPE. Police would be called and you’d be angry as hell. YOUR rights stop when they violate someone else’s. I own a cat and would never suppose that someone felt like taking a break from their busy day to care for my animal. MORON. You wanted the animal. If you are incapable of love you never should have got it. “For the cat owner so loveth his cat, that he leteth it out to the dangers of the world”. Please don’t have children. There’s streets out there.

  39. If you cat lovers that are saying dont be so cruel ,what if someone poisoned you or shot at you with a bb gun . I would say you have the right to do it if i come on a daily basis and throw a bag of my steaming hot shit and piss on your deck then i would deserve it wouldn’t i?

    • Don’t be stupid. You can’t kill someone for the reason you state. Neither can you kill a cat for that reason in most (all?) states of the USA as far as I know. In Europe you’d be arrested for it.

  40. I agree with the people that believe if you own that little animal take care of it, put it on a leash, or keep it your damn yard cause if you let it wonder around pissing on people’s property you should expect the worse , because if i catch that little bugger i would kill it because the stench is killing me!!!!!

    • Look I agree that people should not allow their cats to roam on other people’s property if that person does not like it. However, to kill a cat for that reason is cruel and nasty. I therefore conclude that you are cruel nasty. Don’t come back to this site.

    • they should be captured and put down,why should people be subjected to there smells and waste–they kill birds which I happen to love and for the most part cats don’t eat birds its just something they do. use lemon oil or peppermint oil that should do.

  41. I don’t agree with forcing cats to stay inside the house. If you had a kitten and brought it up that way, fair enough, but we have adopted and fostered cats who prefer the outdoors. My current cat was abused by someone who lived around the corner, and escaped to my house where she found a family.
    Thankfully, I live in an area where people are kinder to animals. We all look out for eachothers pets, mine goes outside at night and sometimes sleeps in my neighbours flat. She used to bring her back, but when her cats started accepting it, she let her. We only don’t keep her in at night because she’s learnt how to open the kitchen door, and my mum has allergies, so try and keep the front room of the house as hair free as we can.

  42. My heart goes out to the owner of these poor kitties. I wish you comfort in your time of loss. Scrappy looks like my 12year old Katycat.

  43. Please believe me when i say”i am a animal lover”.i have had many dogs,6 to be exact.i have had 2 cats at different times,and loved them all until old age got them.they lived very long and happy,healthy lives.there is a point to this,i feel your pain on the loss of your cats,and i know how painful it is,BUT,you only confirmed something that i am so so against.LETTING cats run the neighbor.not only do they cause gardeners anger and car owners anger (footprints alover the cars)but,when i love an animal i WILL NOT put them in harms way.whether,its pioson,hit by a car or mean people(that are feed-up with the cat problem)if you are a parent,dog owner or cat owner you need to take responcibity of what belongs to you.i don’t mean to be mean but it would not have happened if they were in their own home.

  44. All you naughty abused,used,unloved and unwanted “children” should not be taking it out on the animals. YOU with the BB gun, MAN-UP take a GLOCK with one live roubd in it and stick it in your mouth… I will pull the trigger when you are too weak! And YOU who spent MONTHS and MONTHS putting some potting soil from freaking LOWES into some cheap plastic tubes that you call your garden…cats generally develop those maladies as a result of not being vaccinated, or having flea treatments. Fleas actually case a number of the conditions that can affect a feline. Its funny though… even if I let all your grammatical errors go and pretend you are educated than you would have also known that MOST…. and I do say MOST medical condiotions that affect both feline and canine alike are not harmful to humans. A human can not give a cold to thier dog nor can you catch an auto immune virus (eg. AIDS)from a cat…be it a stray or your neighbors. Worry about your education instead of your herb bushes. Lots of Federal Grant Money with this uhmmm,,,,,, well,,,, President Obama in Office, so take advantage you idiot!
