Help!

What laws are there to stop my neighbors cat attacking my small dog and birds? Neighbors are new and dog stays inside but got attacked when I let him out last night unattended. I also usually keep my conure inside and my teils outside but am now having to keep everyone inside. This cat is a menace and the owner simply says" what can I do I can't keep it indoors or put in on a leash". Grr!!! End rant.

Aleron-Male Sun Conure Dnad had since 15weeks old
Stormy-Male WF pearl pied male teil had since 9 weeks old
Atila-Male/female? Lutino teil had since 4 weeks old

Oh, there are plants you can get, or electronic repeller.
Or a high powered water pistol.

They CAN keep the cat inside, actually. I'm sure you could contact animal control if the cat is actually attacking your animals.

Most places do not have leash laws for cats. They are allowed to roam as the owner will allow. There are repellants, though. With your creatures I wouldn't go the sound wave route -- you'd be punishing your creatures as well as the roamers. The most effective I've found is coyote urine. No, you don't have to get cozy with the coyote -- most feed stores sell it in crystal form so you can just shake it around the area. There are other versions for skunks and javelena, which is how I found out about it. I'm so sorry they've changed things for you. Irresponsible owners hurt us all

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile

Neighbours can be a pain.
Maybe we should all live next door to each other.

Yeah!
Who'd be worse?
Which species would be the loudest?
I think cockatiels or budgies?

Oh, I think I could live with that I'd love it. Then again, I love listening to ravens, too....

That's what happens haha. Oh and don't forget Joey hehe!

I work with a raven called Spike! He calls all day and talks very well. Every time I go to feed him he goes 'alright Spike!?' and he sounds human! Haha. He's really clever too. And big! Very big bigger than a Harris hawk!

Call your local animal control - they will let you know your rights. Here in the States, you could trap the cat and give it to AC&C. The owner would have to come collect it and if he repeatedly offends, they can take the cat from him
