    So there are some local neighborhood cats that have started hanging around my backyard and deck. Recently they have decided to start using the posts on my deck as scratching posts and they are making a mess of it. I know there have got to be some simple things people do to stop getting their own cats to stop scratching their furnature.

    Any ideas how I can get these cats to stay away from my yard and deck? (Besides just sitting there drinking beers and shooting them with paintballs.)

    *EDIT* I don't hate cats, just hate that other people's cats are making a mess of my stuff.

    Well there's your problem. You should hate cats.

    Spray them with the hose, they hate water. It won't hurt them and they'll stop coming over.

    Had a feral cat take up part time residence in my garage a few years back. Pissed on my hockey bag...little bastard. But I got a bunch of new gear in the end, which was nice.

    I have no idea what show you are talking about. I was recommending small scratch triggered explosions.

    If you want to hang around, hit them with a hose or a big squirt gun.

    If you want them to go away when you're not there, use one of the stinky products that you can find in places like home depot that use jaguar urine or some other predator's scent to get them to leave it alone.

    Drink a bunch of beer, then piss on the posts they scratch on. Done.

    This works for cats you like, too. Just don't pee on the indoor furniture.

    I didn't watch either when they were airing and found them both later to enjoy.

    I have to say, I have always enjoyed stuff Jason Bateman has done before, but the last few years he has had some great parts.

    Have GFF come to your place and hunt them down. Be ready to call 911 when he has his near death experience. :p

    Under-kill is for pussies and the french. Put the cats in the dirt. My girlfriend's folks' neighborhood is overrun by feral cats, like Cats of the Corn overrun. I have a .22 AR and a suppressor, I really want them to just let me go cat genocide on the place.

    but no...
