Question by steve m: how to get rid of stray cats at my little diner……?
typical feral/stray cat problem, except they are under my storage shed outside the back of my restaraunt. Local authorities won’t do squat, nearest Humane Shelter is 30 miles away. No feeding doesn’t work, they get in the dumpster out back all the time. They are getting on customers cars and a couple of them even got in the back of the bread truck when it was here for delivery. I don’t want to be cruel and harm them, but I own a diner, not a petting zoo!!!!!!!! One customer suggested I spray ammonia under the shed and in the dumpster, no dice, still here and have been for two months now. It is really getting old but I can’t bring myself to be inhumane to them, at least not directly like shooting them, but THEY MUST GO. Someone help please. It’s not my garden or yard, I have dogs that can control my personal space, it is my restaurant, and I can’t put up with any longer!!!!!
let me re emphasize, this is a very small town in a rural area, there are no “no kill” shelters, the closest regular shelter is 30 miles away, our town’s animal control ONLY deals with “dangerous” animals. All your answers are great, but there is no help with groups etc… in such in a small rural area. I’m on my own here with this problem.

get a humane trap and see if anyone wants them for barn cats- most farmers would take them off your hands for mousers.
