Yep its cat poop, ive never heard of a cat that didnt bury its poop before this problem but i got em. I came home one day and caught one in my storage room under the carport, he'd crapped all over the floor.

Sounds to me like you see one of these. http://www.joeboboutfitters.com/YHM_10_22_Integrally_Suppressed_Rifle_8900_p/supp-yhm-8900.htm

Put a bait bucket in a safe place of your property and start shooting the yotes. That's what I did....

Your'e right. A cat that is sick with parasites will be bad about burying poop, too. It makes sense the cats causing you trouble are stray, uncared for and in poor health.

All the more reason to get rid of them. Ive got my popup camper in the barn and I dont want the pungent smell of cat piss permiated in the camper when we drag it out and open it up this spring. I also dont want a litter or two of stray kittens that think my barn is thier home.

I hear you, but have you considered why the cats are there? I'm thinking you may have a rodent issue out in the barn that keeps them coming back like stoners to Taco Bell. You may need a large pound ex-Tom cat to keep the strays out of the barn and the rodents in their place as cat food.

One year at Christmas I got my newly independent youngest son a gift certificate to Taco Bell. My kids laughed at me for months for that. I didn't know........

Anyway, I think female cats make better mousers than males. Just my personal observation. I don't know if it's true or not. But, of course, make sure she's spayed.

This is true. We have several barns on different tracts of land and we have a spayed female cat in each one. And, they are all very friendly.

Yes we do have mice, I have a corn/soybean field on two sides of the house. I live on a state highway so outdoor animals dont seem to last long. We had a black male cat but he decided to cross the highway in front of a pickup truck so that was the end of him. I just shoot the strays when I see them. I think Ive only got one left, there for awhile everytime I spotted one it was sitting in front of my atv, or on the hood of our riding mower or on my utility trailer, I just couldnt get a clear shot without hitting something I didnt want shot.

Paintballs might be more flexible; the paint will wash off the car (the kind i have seen).

I thought about that. I did finally get the drop on them. I snuck out the front door with my 870 loaded a looped around the house.
