Cat attacking and tried killing my fish

Right, bit of a strange one. I have a cat from down the street harrasing my house, ive found it inside my actually ontop of one of my fish tanks, climbing on the roof in the nifht waiting for my cats and so on.

Its horrible and is now physically attacking my cats. My cat has just got back from the vets where its needed lots of stitches because chunks bitten out of him and afew weeks ago my little ginger boy had his fur ripped out his neck by this cat which left a huge gash bite to his neck, could of killed him!

What do i do?! Ive been planning on getting this cat for months and now its getting worse.

Everytime i get close it runs, i have a bbgun but it will penetrate. I dont want to cause pysical damage but i need to scare the living poo out of this cat .

Suggestions?
Approaching the owner will have bo effect as i cant expect him to keep it inside. And would also alert him to the fact of if his cat came home injured who cased or did it.

Spray it with a hose every time it comes near your house... That's pretty aweful.. I hate to say this but if it were me and my cats were being victimized I'd be far less diplomatic in the matter..

Yeah, Spraying it would keep it away and the bb gun won't penetrate unless its pretty high powered. If its pump operated just pump it once or twice and shoot the cat, It won't hurt it bad at all. maybe a little welt.

Believe me i would shoot it if i knew i could get away with it, i had a chance the other night i heard my cat screaming so i looked out onto my roof to see the fat cats face just poking round the corner like a sly **** The only thing is my street know i shoot in my back yard and im positive it will penetrate. If i could just get hold of it it would never ever come back to my yard.

Im annoyed at my cats for taking it though because theyre not exactly wimps. I have 4 males of my own and thought they might spank the fatcat together.

I keep making excuses, the one that sticks is, how would i feel if someone shot one of mine. Its only doing what comes naturally and it is coming into spring time so he'll be throwing his weight around.

The fact that a bbgun shot will only cause physical pain with little to no relation to why how and where.

If i get another chance i could trap it in my house and terrorise it with a watergun and newspaper. Then leave the room and come back 30mins later for another bash. Once a few hours have gone, it would never return!

I love my cats. And if one was to injure mine like that, it would be one-dead-cat some way some how! OS.

I'd check with your local animal services, especially if this cat is getting in your house! And since your cat was injured, I would get the police involved, just saying.

I agree. Animal shelter or a live trap lol either one would solve your problem.

I've actually seen solutions to this problem on an episode from "cat from hell" on Netflix- the neighbor had to create an area for their cat that he could not breach outside - the cat was under stimulated ,
I'm sure you're already keeping your doors shut but this cat could easily get into screen doors.
I think you'll have to talk to the owner, they should want to fix it on their own Bc pets like that can be removed by home owners associations etc...
