OK, this may not seem like a big deal to some people. But we have a bit of a situation. Our cat Jasmine is an outdoor cat. A couple of days ago we got her a collar with an identification tag on it. If it was my decision, she would not be an outdoor cat. But she was previously owned by our in-laws and she was outside all the time and has been an outdoor cat for years. So if I don't let her out she gets all crazy. The problem is, however, there is a male yellow tabby that has been harrassing, and stalking her since we've lived in Brunswick. He is relentless in his pursuit of her. At times he comes to our screendoor and stares her down. She hisses and growls and one time I saw her beat him in the head. Caleb and I have tried everything to get him to stop. I've taken a metal pole and thrown it at him ( didn't hit him), Caleb has taken his airsoft gun and shot it in the air to try and scare him and I've even chased him off of the apartment complex property. But he has continued to stalk her. I don't know what I should do. I know that Jasmine needs to be outdoors to be happy, but I'm afraid that the tabby is going to hurt her someday ( he's a GIANT cat). I don't think he has a collar. Should I call the pound? If he has a collar but no identification, what steps should I take? I got 2 calls this evening by some people living in the apartment who heard a cat fight and found her outside. I wasn't home at the time. This cat just passed by our glass door about 20 minutes ago. He is absolutely persistant. What would you do? I don't want to hurt him. But he's beatin' on my baby. Anyone have any suggestions?
P.S. I'm just kidding about the title of my post. I wouldn't really shoot him LOL.
