So there's this feral cat that comes in our pet door and terrorizes my small dog. In the middle of the night the dog routinely jumps up, runs down the hall, and goes ballistic when this cat comes in. The cat has never really done anything, but the dog is about to go psycho.

It runs as soon as anyone gets close. I've tried a bunch of times to get out the door fast enough to get a shot at it, and finally succeeded.

But I think I missed. No dead cat. It was a tough shot - over a fence and kind of through some bushes by the fence.

This was a couple days ago. Cat hasn't been back since. Hopefully I wounded it and the coyotes found it.



Any other ideas on how to get rid of one of these creatures from hell?

Get one of those locking pet doors, the type where your dog wheres a collar with a magnet and the door senses the magnet and unlocks only for your dog.

Havent seen "Over the hedge " have ya.... The cat will just enlist the help of a coyote dressed as a lady dog to get the collar.
