It might seem obvious, but as of last night, we've got a new problem We've got brand new neighbours nextdoor (1 week ago), and I saw they've got cats, 3 young cats. We've got a cat flap for our big fat old house cat 'Tilly', but she rarely uses it unless we let her out through the door and then she'll come back in. Anyway, last night 03:40 I heard cat fighting, not unusual but it sounded close - I got up to look out of the window and thought "that sounds a bit closer than that", then I heard a smash and some real loud cries. I sprinted downstairs, and one of the neighbours cats exited our living room like a rocket and straight out of the cat flap... our poor cat was looking rather sorry for herself in the living room hissing at either me or my g/f as we went to get closer. On top of that this bloomin cat has sprayed on our nice rug which we're just going to have to throw out now we can't have one of those magnetic catflaps as Tilly just won't wear a collar. In the meanwhile we're going to leave the dog out of his crate to 'defend' the house, but I don't consider this to be a permanent solution. I'm having a right nightmare with these animals at the moment!
