So here's the story. We have a very GENEROUS neighbor who has RACHMUNUS on the local cats and he not only allows them his garbage but actually buys cat food and is busy feeding them. The amount of feral cats in the neighborhood is growing exponentially by the day. This guy is obviously no racist and he allows whichever cat wants to "join the crowd". I may have been able to put up with this alone, but...

At night the cats for some reason can't sleep to well and they fight and cry loudly all night. It's disturbing and at times even wakes up my kids. (Many times I had to run to my kids' bedrooms to check if it wasn't them crying...) I may have been able to put up with this alone, but...

The man who feeds them is a total madman. I don't know what gets him started, whether a cat's scratch or if they just don't want to eat what he offers them, but he can begin yelling and screaming at the top of his lungs, cursing and hollering non-comprehendible words. This happens even 3:00, 4:00 and 5:00 in the morning. He awakes all the neighbors and my children are terrorized by the guy. may (???) have been able to put up with this alone, but...

Today it reached a point where it cannot be allowed to continue. The other day my wife switched the seat in our carriage to a bassinet to accommodate our newly born 3-week old baby. Today she came out of the house with the kids and headed toward the fully covered carriage to put in the baby, removed the cover, and.......
OMG!!! She jumped back 10 feet, while the cat in the beautiful, once clean bassinet had the chutzpah to not even budge! To describe it modestly, the bassinet is now covered in cat-hairs...  :'( Now go put a newborn in there...
I have had ENOUGH !!!!!
>:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(

I am looking for a solution to get rid of them. I found a couple of solutions through googling. Among others, acetaminophen (Tylenol), antifreeze, milk diluted with bleach and sugar, among plants, the sago palm (even more so, its seeds)...
I am going to put an end to this! The question is just how.
Any suggestions?

ASPCA?  Police for disturbance at 4 am?
I like the motion detect sprinklers to keep them off your property.

If I'm gonna take things into my own hands... then I'd rather keep it off records. Like someone told me that if you call 311 in NYC for them to remove a tree, they won't remove it; rather, they then put a watch on the tree and lurk for you to commit the "crime" of chopping a tree so they can fine you (IIRC $10,000 + the costs of planting a new one)... This is a scenario I'd prefer to avoid.

I'm just a renter, cannot install anything on the lot.

There's this thing with sticks and orange string on it. Cats are superstitious about it and dont pass them. Or something like that. I've only seen it but not sure if it works
I'm not who you think I am.

Lol, thought of it, but I'm not looking to anger that neighbor. If he's capable of making such noise at such hours, who knows what else I may be in for if I start up with him. He goes around all over the place (feeding cats, of course) and he'll notice it immediately.

So I have tush neighbors who are blasting music now (3 am) in crown heights and my whole family is up! We tried:

1. 311 complaint/ called police * 4
2. asking them politely.
3. screaming out my lungs.
4. spraying water with my hose on them.
5. I bought stink bombs for next time

They are still going strong. My wife suggest we spray pepper spray in their back yard- would that even help?

Any ideas would to combat this abuse would be helpful.

Thanks

How close are you? Buy a cellphone jammer, and tell them it goes on when the music goes on. In this day and age that can be quite a threat.
