So I’ve got a bit of a problem and was wondering if anyone could help me out. We’ve had trouble with some of the children in the street before, and one in particular has been very bad. Basically shouting and screaming in the garden (I live in a flat so its a shared garden), breaking things on our veranda, and generally being noisy and destructive. It’s his mothers fault, she sits out there and does nothing as he runs wild. And in the summer she can be just as bad, sitting in the garden in the afternoon drinking, making a mess, and being very disruptive. Normally I could deal with all of this, but we have recently gotten a new rescue cat. He’s just stared going outside, but he is very nervous and easily spooked, and still quit young (we think around 18 months, but can’t be sure).
Today I was planting some seeds in the veranda when I caught this boy shouting and screaming at my cat, and telling him to jump from the veranda. When he saw me there he decided to shout at me too. With my other cat it wouldn’t be so bad, he’s lived here all his life and just ignores the noisy children. But I’m worried my new cat is going to be too freaked out to go outside at all if this boy does this again, maybe next time when my front door isn’t open for him to run inside or I’m not there for him to feel safe with.
What do you think I should do about this? Talking to the mother isn’t an option, people have tried in the past to get her to control her child but she just doesn’t care. Should I do a cat protection spell? Or maybe a house protection? If this keeps up I may have to go as far as to do a banishing on this destructive family. Any advice would be much appreciated?
