Aw, I thought that you knew that. I live just by a common which is heavily populated by wild rabbits and certainly one out of my three cats is a real hunter. I have never actually seen him do it but in order to bring the rabbits home he has to carry them over a seven foot six inch wall then through two cat flaps.

I suppose he thinks of food and kitchens as that is where I normally feed them... so he brings his 'dinner' home and eats it. Sometimes he just lets it go and I have even found rabbits hiding behind my bookcase! Mice run riot here.... don't think that I have any just now though

Just make sure that you close the door from the lounge Ren, you don't want any nasty surprises in your bedroom!!

It's good to see that you folks are finally utilizing this forum now that JoJo is gone but this is really digusting. Don't you think this is a bit too detailed and slightly off topic? I get the feeling you don't like rabbits very much Sue and Linda. I remember reading some similar things in an old, defunct thread. Do you think you could maybe spare us the details about what your cat drags home? I really don't see any useful tips or tricks here.

Actually it was not me that first mentioned what cats drag in... I merely said that you wouldn't want to see what my cats DO drag in. It is completely on topic, if you had to clean my kitchen floor you would know what I meant.

It wasn't a mere mention Sue, you told details about what the cat drug in. That's what I'm saying.

My dog brought pieces of a cat home once and made a mess out of my back deck, but no one really wants to read these types of details now do they? It could be justified if I explained how to get rid of the cats blood from my deck in this thread about useful tips. But I ended up having to repaint it to get rid of the stains.

Hey Sue, we used to have wild rabbits around by our house - the cats moved in (with us) and the bunnies obviously moved out.
Shame really, our Cass was never going to be fast enough to catch one - but bird innards make such a mess of one's carpet don't you think?
Does anyone have any useful hints and tips as to what could be used to remove bird guts from shagpile? I really need your help here folks

Try OxyClean for all sorts of stains. I've found out it seems to be the best rug stain remover I've ever tried, and I've used a lot...(I've got a cupboard full to prove it ) Just recently I've purchased a new degreaser/cleaner called"Krud Remover" at Sam's club. We'll see

Btw, my cat Tank, brought me a present... a dead mouse, in my face, in bed, at 4:30 am. Oh, what a lovely gift!!!LOL

At least it was dead, not still half alive which is always the worst.
So do you have any other tips on dead catkill disposal?

Should have maybe taken care of this problem immediately. Kind of late now to do anything other than light a match to the affected area. Burn baby burn.

Thanks for the tip about OxyClean, Pinhead. Other than in the Club stores, where can you buy it?

Hi CB. You can try Walmart's, Target, or Walgreens; or

D.D.A.

It's expensive on the net, so check the other places out first. If you still can't find it, let me know.

It's $12.00 + tax for a 6 lb. tub at Sam's, and it would be cheaper for me to send it to you...
Party on...
