I reckon that the National Grid might have something up their sleeves, if approachd in the right way. 24000 volts zapping a mog in mid tail twitch would send a message at the speed of light, to any cat, as well as burglars, missionaries,sales persons, bailiffs, county court representatives, canvassing politicians, morris dancers and homeless spoon and washboard players !

If anyone can try this out, let the forum know the result !

Hi.  If 'bump' has a modenistic meaning on the ethereal net, then I am completely at a loss as to what it means. I am steam driven, and to me, the 'bump' means that the way I was going for the herbal lawn, implying simply that it won't be a smooth finish . But, I don't WANT a smooth finish !  Bumpy threads are what my gardening jumper is made from !

I  did mention lion or tiger poo, but it was poo poo'd earlier.

Now, on closer consideration, I wonder what elephant droppings, ( ho hum ) or heffalump dumps are in comparison to rabbits eggs . This could prove interesting. Which is more rain resistant ? 

I STILL think that apart from all this drama and para comedy stuff, to leave sun glasses partially hdden under some plant, leerinng out to where the moggy goes, is by far the most efficient scare tactic, or tictac. My dear old cat, down in St.Just, near PZ, nearly had kittens when the 'eyes' peered out from under the leaves. Nearly crapped himself,  and that's putting it politely !!!!!!

Hi Paddy,


Is the Problem cat a 'Marmalade' cat by any chance ? If this is the case, you stand NO  chance, Mate !

IS there a cat deterrant called 'Shoo Cat ' ? I think it came in a box of voices, and whenever a cat came in the garden, you opened the box up, set on LOUD, and it thundered out in stentorian tones, SHOO, CAT ! and they were only 2/6 old money for a voice rendition !  

Lion crap is for when a cat comes in, and you shout at the lion, 'YOU'VE CROSSED THE LION/LINE' , or whichever is applicable

 I seem to remember a product a long time ago, called, 'Fox Off ',  but never actually SAW the stuff on any shelves. I have a sneaking feeling that the salesperson was one of the two Ronnies !!!
