Shoot/trap the feral cats?
P.S. - It would be so much easier to read your posts if you used punctuation.

The issue with feral cats is that they reproduce rather quickly. The best method is to poison them; using regular weather guarded cat food feeders. This will help kill off litters as well. However, I don't condone or recommend this, I'm just providing you with a method to eradicate them. Your state, county and city will most definitively have laws preventing this and you will be breaking the law.

About 3 years ago I had a terrible problem with wild cats. All I can say is I took care of the problem and I didn't like doing it. Today the neighborhood is still fairly clean of stray cats. My vet, who I went to school with, said the same thing just take care of it.

don't have many wild cats here & not much of a cat person myself although we have one
used to say cats are like Bic lighters when they junk out for almost nothing you just replace it with another one
would much rather have a feral hogs then cats at least you can eat the hogs

use good judgement. I dont have a cat problem around my place. Haven't seen one on my property since the day after one scratched my dog. (22lr)

if you live in the woods they're nice to have around b/c they take care of the mice. my father-in-law hates them with passion, but keeps them around b/c he hasn't had a mouse in his old house in 30+ years. It's funny b/c every year or so there is a change over and new cats will show up and the old ones will either die or get killed by the TOM.
