Looking for advice. I "own" 9 indoor/outdoor cats (inherited from my son) and a neighbor says that my cats are ruining his yard. The neighbor first claimed that the cats were going near the bushes but now says that they are going in the middle of his yard on the grass. The neighbor's yard is very well kept and, well, being neighbors I don't want this to continue. A couple of points I want to mention - first, the cats have litter boxes in the house that they use (more in the winter than in the warmer weather when they tend to stay outside more); second, the cats don't seem to relieve themselves in OUR yard (although our yard is kind of beat....does that matter?); and lastly, our accusing neighbor used to have 2 or 3 indoor cats which they would walk in their yard - their cats have since passed away (they have been gone for at least 2 or 3 years) - they would clean up their yard after their cats would relieve themselves. Could this be attracting my cats to their yard? Could this be the reason why my cats would go on their grass? I though cats are more inclined to go in bushes where they are hidden. Any thoughts/answers/advice? Thanks.
