The bad thing about it is that I like cats I almost wanna pay someone to do it for me but trappers around here charge 40$ a cat to remove them...I also live inside the city limits that's why I need to be quiet because it's not exactly "legal" to fire a gun inside the city..And then again I have a cheap daisy pellet gun but I think that wouldn't be too humane if you ask me....If anyone else has an other ideas to get rid of them or keep them away please let me know.

Just to warn you if caught you could face jail time for cruelty to animals. Life is certainly not fair. Feral cats (and all house cats) kill large numbers of birds - up to and including pheasants.

I live in a city that has no firearms discharge ordinance on the books that also includes pellet rifles and guns, and being cited is no more than a misdemeanor. I live in a pretty built up area, house beside me is 20 feet from my house and I live across a creek from an open space city park. I can actually be in the downtown central business district in 30 minutes walking, so I have an idea of your issues.

My major pest issue was squirrels and feral cats- no issue now. Also, saw a few Norway rats that show up under the bird feeder that had to be dealt with.

Initially, I used a number of different pellet rifles- .177 and .22 cal, spring piston and nitro piston- with fair results on the squirrels and rats. Not so good with the feral cats. I then started using a .22 cal rifle with CCI's subsonic segment round with excellent results. Noise level is not too high, I don't don't get the "crack" of a .22 round, and with good shot placement, I'm able to drop any critter with one shot without drawing attention. If a second shot is necessary, the neighbors really don't notice the noise inside their houses, and I doubt if they actually know it's a gun shot if they do hear it. I'm damn sure they won't be able to tell the 911 operator it's origin if they do recognize the sound of a subsonic round. I've also found the CCI Quiet 22 is no louder than the cb cap or any of my pellet rifles with a lot more punch. I know this round will drop a squirrel with good shot placement, still, I prefer the CCI segmented subsonic round.

Actually I thought the same thing but feral cats are considered a pest but if you shot your own cat "not that anyone would" you will for sure face animal cruelty charges...The part that is for sure illegal is discharging a firearm in the city..I decided to hire a private trapper today and pay the extra money to not get in trouble...It is a bit more expensive but it's worth not getting into any trouble with the law.

To each his own. We all have to find solutions that work for us.

The only thing about disposing of dead feral cat corpses...is that you have to dispose of dead cat corpses
Which means...you either have to incenerate 'em...or Bury 'em DEEP...preferrably far away from your home.
Take a page from the cannabis growers and bury 'em on federal land...or in the City Park...LOL

If you don't mind being a slightly sick puppy, freeze 'em, then run 'em thru a wood chipper and use 'em for mulch.
Downside of that is the odor...

Of course, being in the City, you probably could have just called Animal Control and let them handle it...

And always remember, if disposing of dead critter parts...make sure you REMOVE all bullets first!!
No sense in leaving any thing that could possibly ever be traced back to YOU...

They look almost like rabbits when they are skinned. I already posted a "solution".
