During the last 2 weeks or so, next doors cat has realised we have a hen in the backyard. How good are cats at catching chickens? So far we have heard her start clucking and come outside to chase the cat off, but it keeps coming back. I threw water on it today. The neighbours will come out if they hear the clucking and I assume either call the cat back or come into the backyard and grab it. I'm just worried it will come into the yard one day when no one is home in either house. I threw water at it today. If I keep doing that, do you think it will get the message? It's only a young cat, I think.
