Recently there was a litter of kittens born in my backyard and we don't own a cat. I assume their mother is still around and taking care of them since their "crying" meowing goes off and on as house raised kittens do. Why is this a problem you ask? Why can't I just let the kittens and their mom live in my backyard which I do not use nor enjoy?
They seem to be concerned anytime these kittens cry and some think it's causing their dog to bark when they let it out in their backyard. This dog barks either due to my TV even at a low volume or me doing stuff in the kitchen. No one heard this kittens more then a week ago and neither did I. So clearly even if they were to be removed their dog barking was a pre-existing issue and they seem more annoyed by it then I am. I assume the dog is just bored or lonely.
Anyways. I have no idea what to do about these cats that ends up being a win-win situation for anyone.
1. I can let the cats do their thing and end up pissing off and/or concerning the neighbors.
2. I can call animal control they get sent to the animal shelter and of course get killed on tax payers money.
3. Get them neutered which costs money I don't have and wouldn't want to pay anyways since again.. they are not my cats.
So anyone got suggestions? This issue has been pissing off my dad too, though i'm sure he's as indifferent towards the cats as I am. We got stuff we fight about already, we don't need this to be another issue which it's already become.
