    We have the same problem but lately Dexter and Honey have decided they like chasing the cat , I hate the think what will happen if they catch it.
    Anyone who says a Bulldog is Ugly has never owned a Bulldog.

    @2BullyMama..lol. I am all for pets but why would you try to take the wild raccoons and bring them indoors. She puts out food and stuff in her yard. She has an old broken down garage in her yard that she will not take down because she figures they need a place to live. My elderly neighbor had died a year ago so the property was empty. One day I was out in my yard, laying in my hammock, when I hear an excuse me, excuse me. I look over and she is talking to me over the back fence. She asked me if I could open the neighbors shed so her cats could go hang out in there.

He would be asleep in the sun, minding his business, this cat would scale the fence and jump down on him. I am assuming sink his claws in and make a game of it. Don't know why. That dog, although monster sized is a real gentle giant. Just a dopey puppy in a huge body.

    Definitely won't be good for the cat.

    Mastiffs are gentle giant, that is for sure, but boy do then tend to hate cats..... and it is usually rightfully so.

    @2BullyMama -- I swear it was crazy how that cat stalked my dad's dog. The funniest thing is that he never had any cat issues. That cat lived to torment him I think. I remember being over one father's day, trouble was laid out in the sun on his back, enjoying his little doggie dreams, when out of no where this cat launched itself from the top of the fence onto him. It was like a crazy cartoon scene. Poor dog just cried until we shooed the cat away with the hose. Guess eventually he ran out of doggie patience. The cat had to be nuts, this dog is huge. If I didn't know him there is no way I would enter their house.

    Yes, this is a problem. But, this is not your cat. This is your neighbor's cat. And she is responsible for that cat. So, bottom line is - it is your neighbor's problem to solve. If I were you, I would knock on her door and explain the situation and ask her to provide a solution. Good neighbors usually do their best not to inconvenience their neighbors with their stuff.

    I have a neighbor with 2 boxers who roam their yard every morning. Unfortunately, if my dogs are out in the yard and their dogs are out too, it becomes a riot at the fence. One of the fence boards are coming lose and any one of our dogs could bust through anytime now. We fixed the fence, but it took only one day for it to come lose again. The mayhem at the fence is just becoming too much of a hassle. It is a problem and we had to find a solution. So, I walked over to the neighbor's house and we discussed the problem together. We came up with a solution using creative scheduling - I have to let the dogs out at a certain time in the morning to be on time for taking the kids to school. The neighbor was gracious enough to adjust his dog's morning schedule to a later time so that the dogs are out when my dogs go back in.

    I'm just telling you this as an example of how you can possibly solve a problem by having the owner of the cat deal with it if you bring up the topic graciously and politely. Of course, if your neighbor is just completely uncaring, then you can let her know of consequences - you can tell her that the next time the cat poops in your yard, you will take the cat to the animal shelter. An unwanted animal within your private property can be sent to the animal shelter within your rights as a property owner.

    @anatess -- thanks. It's funny because her cats like to visit all of our yards, you never see them in her yard. I am really thinking to re-fence the whole yard with a high fence, not only because of her cats, but I also want it more securely fenced as a doggy park. The couple grand it will cost is not presently in my budget, but it is in my list of "wants".

    Just to let you know... I had 2 cats before (my kid is allergic to cats so we can't have them anymore) and those cats can climb an 8-foot wooden fence or cinder block/brick/concrete wall. The only thing my cats couldn't climb was those vinyl (smooth and slippery) fences and it had to be 6-foot tall (not the regular 4.5 foot that is most common) so they can't jump over it.

    @anatess -- I intend to do three sides in the PVC vinyl fence in the six foot range, then the fourth side will be the four foot pieces. That way I can close the little weebles in and let them roam but I can still see them while sitting on the patio furniture. I hate keeping them on a teether. I want them to have the true free willy feeling
