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

Keep the M1 Carbine's magazine loaded just for that purpose - varmints/feral cats/etc.

about a week ago i took care of a feral cat problem at my uncles ranch. i used my 22 cal air rifle to do the job.in 5 hours i "removed"32 cats. they hadn't been a problem until the started eating the chickens.but they really crossed the line when they killed my uncles chihuahua and ate him.a 16 grn hollow point to the ear at 60 yards dropped em with ease.
