Humane way to kill a feral cat
This little bastard keeps on coming onto my land and attacking my chickens he has killed several already.

It is indeed a feral cat, and I'm going to have to kill it, I don't want to cause him to suffer so I don't want to feed him antifreeze or something similar so can someone tell me the best method to kill the little fucker?

Re: Humane way to kill a feral cat
Why do you have to kill it? Can you trap it and then take it to a shelter?

Can't blame it for wanting to eat.

Re: Humane way to kill a feral cat
Or just put some cat food out and it will stop eating your chickens. I owned a feral outdoor cat for years. She got fairly tame after a while. Very sweet kitty. And they keep the mice away.

They are just hungry. Feed it. Make it your pet. Or trap it and take it to a shelter. Don't kill it!

Ok i'll try to feed it and see if that solves the issue to hand that would be the ideal solution if it indeed works.

I have chickens and have to deal with this all the time. Get a live trap put some fresh oil based tuna in it and the cats, coons, and possums can't resist. There are plenty of those varmits so just plug-em and leave em out in an open field so the eagles and buzzards can eat.

Or if getting a gun is too much trouble a crossbow with a wicked broad-head would completely destroy it, probably be even more humane than a gun.

Or just dunk the trap in a trash can full of water, then you can even skin the cat, they have surprisingly tough skin so it would make good leather.

Call the human society, or someone like that, in your area. They will likely know someone who will come out and humanely trap the kitty.

The will neuter them, and then they are often taken by people with big barns to keep as mousers.

Totally agree. It may also, because it is feral, keep other animals at bay like racoons and weasels. I have had cats that would posture and chase those animals...cats are very turf-oriented. They will also kill moles, rodents, etc. Unfortunately birds too, but you take the good with the bad.

I have a feral under my porch that i feed to keep rodents and stuff out and it is incredible. My neighbors all have rodents coming into their basements, but my guy kills EVERYTHING. I will be so bummed if he dies or leaves.

Re: Humane way to kill a feral cat
Solution: get to your nearest zoo and ask the keepers for some tiger droppings. Just a pound or so is enough.

Distribute the droppings along your perimeter evenly.

No more cats on your land.
No more cats on your neighbours land.
No more cats in a five mile radius in fact.

Done.

Have-a-heart traps work great, bait with bologna...cats like bologna more than tuna for some reason. Once it's in the trap you can take it to a shelter like a pussy or shoot it, or my favorite is to drop cage and all in a tub of water.

Damn son! If you shoot a cat with a shotgun, its asshole would blow out its mouth and make one hell of a nasty mess. A .22LR is the best and quietest way to deal with kitty.

The other option would be to build a movable chicken coop tractor, so the chickens have access to fresh grass and are protected, and you can still feed the cat.

This would be the most humane way, but far from the cheapest, but some of these designs are pretty neat.
