Hi all, I have a one year old female cat, and we live on the 1st floor in some flats. She has the opportunity to go out now she has been spayed, but she is too scared to. My downstairs neighbour has a male cat (not sure if neutered or not) and we don't really speak much... she is strange and not very friendly. I have told her this is an issue, but she hasn't done anything. I imagine that the cat doesn't really want to be shut indoors and causes a fuss, so she lets it out but it has no way to get back in once she is asleep (no cat door). She often isn't at home for a few days at a time. One of the other neighbours got sick of this cat crying and wailing at all hours and started feeding the cat and made it a bed with a blanket outside the owners front door. She also told the owner that the cat was hungry and wailing, and she wasn't going to let this cat in or feel sorry for it because it was nothing to do with her but it was annoying and she felt sorry for it Possibly stupidly by me, I felt sorry for it too about a month ago, when no one appeared to come home for about 3 days. It started coming up to my door, where it could smell my cat, food and people etc and crying. I gave it some food but took the food right down to the door where the cat lives. I don't stroke it and I have never let it in. Now even when the owners are home, this cat will not go away. It sits on the other side of my front door every night (during the early hours!!!), scratching, crying, hissing and spitting at my cat. My cat understandably is really upset by this. She has attacked me when I have gone down to her to calm this, she is scratching all the carpet up and hisses and spits at us when we open the door now. She is way smaller than this cat, and won't go outside at all now. Also, this is very noisy and is keeping me awake and annoying everyone else. Tonight I did the only thing I could think of and cut up a lemon on my front door mat Any other help for this issue? If I phone the RSPCA she is totally going to know it is me who has phoned. I am not sure the cat is neglected, because now I know she is in but it is choosing to come to my house. Argh!
