I have a neutered cat and almost every other night he leaves either a dead rat, mouse, or mole downstairs at the back door of our tenants basement sweet! And I think he is getting fed up! :mad: Can anyone please tell me what to do to make him stop or how to prevent it?! :(

Well I don't think you can really make him stop... it's just what cats do. The only way to prevent it would be to keep him indoors.

Yup, that's what cats do. And apparently, if they bring you their kill, it is the highest form of flattery they can bestow on you. :rolleyes: So just tell your tenant that the cat really, really likes them! :D

There is nothing you can do,other than keeping him inside...anybody who has ever had cats,should know they catch things and bring them home to show off :D
My Vinnie caught 5 mice last week and he's only out with me and the other cats...as long as they are dead,I would say the cat is doing you a favor,keeping mice and rats off your property :D

Thanks for the info, I guess we'll have to keep him indoors :( Whats weird though, is he never has been bringing home so many critters since about 2 weeks ago :confused: Oh well, thanks anyway! :D

Lots of little nocturnal creatures are just more active this time of year, stocking up food stores for the winter, so your cat probably sees more of them now than in the summer.

Keeping him in at night should cut down on his killing.
