Advice: Outdoor Nuisance

Dear Meankitty,

Is there any way I can get a stray outdoor cat from coming on my deck and upsetting my indoor cat?



Dear Diane,

We’d suggest putting a glass bubble over the deck, but it wouldn’t be practical and would probably get totally trashed by bird poo. Alternately, you could humanely trap the stray and take it to a shelter, if your cat gets THAT upset. Me and my housemates like to yell at strays. It adds excitement to our otherwise humdrum lives. I mean, unless that stray is TOM, which isn’t exciting so much as it is a case for a kitty restraining order, the freak.
