A seemingly regular aquarium, populated with dwarf
lanternsharks and/or any other carnivorous fish
(piranha?) that will eat mammals if they are made
available to it. The top of the aquarium is slotted
a kitchen spoon, with an oscillating fan atop it to
the aquatic scents far and
The slotted lid,
accessible to even the craftiest feline only by
atop the aquarium, is in fact a trapdoor held shut
a 5-pound-test spring.
Placed in an open window to serve as both
and lawn/garden pest control, it is no more cruel to
cats than Venus's Flytraps are to flies. Don't want to
see your own cat end up as fishfood? I recommend
keeping your cat out of the yards of such
homeowners, and in return we will gladly continue
control our own pets thusly.
If it wasn't so bloody impossible to catproof a lawn,
such measures wouldn't be necessary. Here in
Spokane, Washington, USA, the maximum legal
height for a front-yard fence or wall is 4 feet (6 feet
for the backyard) and
topping it with barbed wire, nails or broken glass to
keep small animals from landing atop the wall or
fence is illegal.
A 4 foot fence is more than adequate for keeping
stray dogs out (and usually adequate for keeping
them in, too). They actually respect well-defined
and there was Much Rejoicing.
||Excellent idea, ! I shall recommend this to our city fathers for use as municipal decorations on every street corner... [+]

|| You have a yard with dogs in it, and you worry about cats on your lawn?
||I don't leave my dogs out at all day, 2 fries. Most of
the time, they're in the house with me. And a haha
would be awesome, but they can be expensive,
especially one deep enough and with a smooth enough
wall to keep a cat out.
||// especially one deep enough and with a smooth enough

|| I rather thought the point of a haha was that things stay
_in_ it. Terminally, even.
||Well either way, it wouldn't keep a cat in or out.
||Picket fences and some block walls are often topped with blunt pyramidal forms in order to make their use by cats, skateboarders, and other pests more difficult.

amused by the success of my adaptation of nature's

environment. Backfire you say? I call that success.
