Skunk. It got my dogs. Feral cats also an issue
I am not sure where to start. We have a skunk and cat problem in our town especially in my neighborhood.
There are people next door to me that feed the feral cats- and let them stay in their yard. The cats use MY yard as a litter box. The dogs come into contact with the poop, and get vomiting and diareah.
And this is just the one house. There are several houses doing this.
Secondly. We have a skunk problem. The food people put out for the cats attracts skunks. A skunk came into my yard last night- one of my whippets went up to sniff it. It sprayed her right in the face. My other whippet saw this and ran after the skunk and also got sprayed- horribly. She killed the skunk. They are both going to the vets. I have used the peroxide baking soda stuff but one looks to have eye damage.
I have been in contact with animal control several times. They once brought out a trap and caught a very diseases mangey cat. They then took the trap and never brought it back. I called them three times and asked to bring the trap back- they don't return my calls.
I called the police to ask if I shot my 22 at the ground and killed a skunk- they said no that is highly illegal. Sigh. What is a person to do?
My dogs don't deserve this- and I am sick of suffering for these wild cats. They are not vaccinated- they are riddled with diseases and parasites. We don't have a trap and neuter program and no one is interested in starting one.
I am starting to get at the end of my rope.
