RE: I am at war with my neighbours

A friend of mine added a couple of trip wires with a flash grenades ( from America ) to each, guess what the kids only into his garden once after that and its much cheaper

RE: I am at war with my neighbours

How about asking them if you can find a compromise with a fence that’ll deter anyone to enter while also be acceptable for you? An alternative could be that you grow rose bushes up the side of the fence…it’ll look nice and be good for prevention.

Not sure if this helps or not too:

Simple, ask your housing association to arrange a meeting where you, your neighbours and a representative from the h/a can discuss the issues .  The final decision will rest with the h/a as to who is right / wrong

This is going to happen soon, i'm expecting things to get ugly, i've been here twelve years & it wouldn't suprise me if i look for new accomodation this year, apparently my next door neighbours don't like cats, they don't like cats (inc. neighbours cats) climbing on the fences, i'm ready for war.

By law cat's have a right to roam...there is no earthly way of stoping a cat eneter/climbing on or in any garden they want...a dog is different....cats also help keep out the vermin(my mate at work is in pest control) shifty

By law? Really.

IMO cats should be kept indoors unless their owners are with them. They are an unnatural predator and a pest. And they leave poo on lawns that can cause serious illness to kids.

Not that I don't like them, I do. But they should be treated like any other pet and not left to roam around all the time.

Would be interested to know what law, seems an odd thing to detain the legislature about!

Sounds like you were looking trouble if you ask me, mate, but I'm from a different culture. We talk first, have a beer, and if that doesn't work, scratch the duco on their cars!

My current neighbour told me(and i do believe him)that in a previous property he caught a troublesom cat in his garden,put in the boot of his car and let he/she go 40 odd miles away,in wooded area,at night.Some two weeks later that bloody cat was back,at the bottom of his garden craping under his rhode's rolling on the floor laughing
