Free roaming cats are great at pest control. They enjoy hunting and eating mice and rats. This makes them assets in our community. We know that we can control feral cats by managing their resources. This is why the TNR program is so important and successful in bigger cities. TNR is scientifically proven to work. We understand cat behavior and know we can train cats to behave in a way that benefits our needs for pest control especially in high populated areas.
Not everyone is a cat fan, and we understand that. Sometimes they are displaying unwanted behaviors and you just want them to stop. TNR stops nuisance behaviors that cause stink, destruction and multiplying. We are happy to offer advice and assistance if you want the cats around for pest control, but need help with making the nuisance behaviors stop. Our Community Cat Hotline number is 270-715-0937
THE SMELL is caused by both male and female cats spraying to attack a mate or mark their territory. Spay/Neuter stops their spray behavior.
THE MEOWING AT NIGHT is actually cat communication when there is a female in heat. The females are calling out to their boyfriends and the males are fighting over the inheat females. By spay/neutering the cats, the "LOUD MEOWS" will stop.
THE MULTIPLYING is happening because someone didn't spay their cat, let her outside, she sprayed her in heat scent through out the neighborhood and it attracts male cats from up to 3 miles away every 3 months. We can stop that behavior by spaying the females.... and neutering the males.
THE DESTRUCTION is caused because you have something they are attracted to. We are happy to lend advice on why a cat would be attracted to your property and how you can stop it. You can call our community hotline 270-715-0937 and leave a message so we can call you back.
For various reasons, some people just don't want the cats on their property. You can purchase cat deterrents online and train the cats to stay away. Deterrents start at around $15 and go up depending on performance or style. We recommend using solar powered so you don't have to replace batteries. Make sure to position the device in a place so that another object won't interfere with any sensors.

Keep cats from digging in your flower pots or flower beds by placing a spiky uncomfortable scat mat inside the pot or along the boarder of your flower beds. Place dirt over the mat to help disguise the mats so it hides the mats. Carpet runners and chair mats can be cut up and used in the same way and usually cost less.
If you are worried about cats (or squirrels) climbing your bird feeders, you can place a sound deterrent low to the ground (so the birds don't trigger it) around the feeder to scare cats away.
To prevent a cat from walking along the top of your fence and aggravating your dogs this product easily screws in place and serves as a deterrent. You can also install this product on top of any flat surface for example gates, sheds, railings, and ledges to create boundary walls. Carpet runners or chair mats also work the same way because they have a spiky side that cats don't care for. Use a staple gun to keep them in place.
