Is there a spot away from the house where your mom can feed them? Get them as far away as possible and they should stop using that area. Can they see the kitties in the house? If they can try to block them from seeing them. That should help.

Aslan says to pee in a cup and spread it around the area. Supposedly cats don't like our smell and won't continue to use the area.

You know that recipe we gave you a while back for the cleaner? Use it outside to at least get rid of the smell. I know how bad it is. I have some sprayers too. And they are all fixed. Fixing them does not guarantee they will stop spraying.

Just a few ideas.

Hope something helps soon.
Are there no low cost s/n clinics in your area? Or a trap and release program? That would cover the cost of fixing them.

Maybe they can get in touch with the Feline Foundation of Maui. They have a TNR mandate for managing feral cat colonies and might be able to share the costs of sterilizing these kitties.

SCM - heidiho is back in the States now. We need a search for her area for low cost s/n.
