There are two 'on cat' ways to reduce hunting in addition to the sensible suggestions here about making sure the cat has nowhere to hide and pounce. We recommend at least two bells on a collar (with a suitable safety break clip) as one bell isn't loud enough or if you have a google, there are devices that make a noise when the cat makes a sudden movement and this reduces hunting success.

SteveJ.  Hi, I've found that the cleaning flagstones is much easier than actual stone, wonder if the paved area where you work is flagged. Part of my stoned area is in shade and garden drains onto it, so I get a lot of "mould" and discolouration.

Ah yes, I was talking about slabs...

I assaulted our paved area at work with nothing more than a bucket of water and a stiff brush and it cleared it nicely.

Be careful with them though, I've been looking at them on and off for a year or two and the quality is amazingly variable from thick and expensive to cheap and made of tinfoil!

I'd like to point out that I'm not the skilled stonemason, it's the person that I quoted from that is!
