I HAVE ISSUES The next door neighbour is on a roll, she is after getting rid of my cats Now she is forever at her front door shooing them, to make them scat I have riled her up getting them, and she is now, rallying up her mates They're all stood at the front, and my cats are now the topic of debate I’ve only had them for 3 days, and already, I have a grill up at my door To stop them wandering across, and sitting on her front path no more She has the local gardeners, inspecting the back gardens for any poop How long will it be before either one of "em makes their fatal cat swoop O’ Lord; how she loves it she is enjoying being back on her high horse No matter which local cat poops it will only be mine, a matter of course Not forgetting here, the demon ginger cat that’s always happy to poop As long as I can recall in her back garden, in fact there is a whole troop But: low and behold, there are only my two cats that are now to blame Honest; if I didn’t know her from old, that woman, really has no shame Indiana Shaw . . . : / "It's all a bit temporay at the moment, the grill is just a pet pen that just happily fitted into the door jam, now I am looking for a mesh door frame that sits outside of the door frame, so I can open and close it as I please because not only are the cats stuck inside, so I am, ha ha ha" . . . ; )

Sounds like your neighbour has issues and not just with cats - our neighbour's cat used to poop in my garden i just used to get a spade and bag it up ... smudge used to sun herself in my green house i put some carpet for her and water to drink when she got too ill she could hardly walk - i miss that pussycat. hope you can get something sorted with the door to keep the peace:-) hugs jan xx
