About 5 weeks ago I rehomed a 6 months old male cat, last week he was neutred and he is mad to get outside. I live on a small farm and have 9 chickens and 3 ducks. Buddy, the new cat sits on the window cil and watches them all day with a passion and when they come close he gets down low and chatters at them through the window as if he is hunting. I took him out on the harness yesterday to get up close and personal and he reacted in the same way and I don't trust him in the slightest that he won't kill them given the chance, we can't walk through the house without him permanently attached to our legs through pouncing. I don't have an enclosure for the hens and ducks, they free range in the day and go into a stone outhouse at night which is closed, we simply open the door in the morning so cant let him look at them through netting etc. Has anyone had any experience of this before? Just a bit i forgot- there are about ten feral cats that hang around all day and have never touched the chickens, even when they were chicks.
