If the cat is on the neighborâ€™s property she could probably have him removed considering that many communities have ordinances against allowing animals to roam. If that is the case, it makes no difference if the animal has actually damaged any property of not. The silver lining is that even if approached poorlyâ€¦at least the neighbor thought enough to give a warning instead of immediately taking the cat to the shelter as a stray or dumping it some place else. There are some people that would have just brought the cat to a shelter (or worse) and said nothing.
I agree with the suggestions above for keeping your kitty safe. The only other thing I can think of is trying to make the areas surrounding the entry ways unattractive to the cat (such as putting something on the floor near the door the cat wouldnâ€™t want to step on) temporarily until the habit of going out is broken.
