Does anybody know how to deter cats from leaving me presents of dead mice at my back door, ugh!! I,m not a cat person and I have lots of cats coming in my garden and always shoo them when I spot them. Three times now I have opened the back door to find a dead mouse, don't like it at all makes me feel queasy having to dispose of it, help?

Super-soaker gun? One of the few things that beats cat's stubbornness.

Or you could get counselling for your aversion to dead mice? wink

It's their way of bringing you a present. Now you wouldn't squirt your kids ..would you ??

I'd be quite pleased that he's catching them to be truthful.

These are only tiny field mice I think Granny brown. I think I will have to be more forceful when I chase them, squirting sounds good to me. I don't want them to like me and leave these here. Yes Venice would not want anything half dead.

The nearest dwelling to me have 2 cats. Great creatures really and they leave the birds alone. However, they are very efficient mousers and sometimes leave me a present on my doorstep. Whole dead mice I don't mind. It's when you get left a mouse assembly kit I ain't too keen on! Yuk!

Field mice. Well, don't be too upset Cools, if they get into your house you'll have to kill them anyway. They breed furiously. Think of the cheaper more humane option. smile

Cats hate water, so good idea.

Mouse assembly kit, Pinz ? Is that something else you store in your tin box ?

Kitties reeeally don't like the smell of citrus..orange especially...squirts of orange oil?? Also orange oil is suppose to lift human moods which might help you recover from the poor mousey sightings! ..:-)
