Thank you Aix sponsa, I think you just solved my problem. I have an active Bald eagle nest on my land in some big cotton woods by an old farmstead. I can humanely relocate them one at a time to the farmstead lol! That shouldn't fall under animal cruelty, my state made that a felony awhile back.

The eagles are staying put, I'll relocate the cats to the farmstead right below the Bald eagle nest! They've been nesting and raising their young there every year for the last eight years.

I can relate to your frustration! Doing a skunk job on a property where the owner has 18 of his own cats and puts out food piles for all the neighboring cats. Haven't had any problems with them clogging traps but they are annoying when driving up to the house because they sit right in the middle of the driveway and do not move for ya.

Wonders why critters have made a home for them selves under his porch.

I think skunks are attracted to cat markings. I have a big problem with them in my yard in town starting about now until it's too cold for them. I'm on the outskirts with no street lights on my street or houses on two sides.

The other night I was getting stuff out of my truck around midnight and heard something moving in the road behind me about 20'. I thought it was a cat so I didn't pay attention to it. When I turned around it ran west and I thought it looked funny. Then the moonlight hit it's back and it was a skunk. Im very thankful he didn't spray me!

You need to cage trap a Fox or Coyote, and relocate it to the feral cat neighborhood.

We have plenty of both around here. Don't see any in town or much sign. They probably just eat the feral cats that visit town and leave. There's quite a few living a mile or so out as well.
