Hi, this lovely cat has been visiting our back garden for the past 3 or 4 months (ish).
Whenever I’m home, it always pops up on my window sill around the same time every morning (going to assume it’s showing up every day when not home). Then comes the stare off / loud ‘meow off’ with my own 2 cats, followed by swipes at each other (either through the window/cat flap) or the occasional chase over the fence. I usually give it a few sprays with a water gun, and it will return 3 or 4 times (and get another spray) before disappearing until the next day. Since the tabby arrived on the scene, I barely see the other cats in the area anymore (who my cats didn’t seem to mind).
Unfortunately, he/she is quite aggressive towards my own 2 cats. It has even gone for me a couple of times when approaching very slowly and trying to encourage it a little. I’ve found the cat in my kitchen once before (followed by a little scuffle) and also in my front room twice when the window was open. It is stressing my own cats out a bit but I do feel really sorry for the little bugger.
It has no collar and must be fairly new to the area as it only showed up a few months ago. HAs a very bushy tail. It was quite skinny for a while but seems a little bigger these days. Not sure really how to ‘deal’ with it as it might be a stray but then it may have a home.
Anyone know it/ own it? Any thoughts on what to do?
