unwanted cats on private property

Cat owners are required to make sure their pet does not wander onto other people’s property without permission. If you have an unwanted cat on your property, politely ask your neighbour to keep their cat on their own property. If you do not know who the owner is or if speaking with your neighbour did not solve the problem, you may want to make your property less inviting to the animal.

Another option is to humanely trap the cat and contact the City of Lloydminster at 780-874-3710 or your local Animal Control Officer to have the cat brought to the Lloydminster and District SPCA.

Making your property Less inviting

Cats can be trained not to enter your yard simply by making your property unpleasant.

  • Place mesh netting (angled outwards) or PVC pipe at the top of your fence to prevent cats from climbing over

  • Place chicken wire just below the surface of your flowerbeds to discourage digging and cover the bed with bark chips or gravel so it is rough

  • Spray the cat with water whenever it enters your yard

  • Spread repellents around your property, like vinegar or orange peels

The Lloydminster and District SPCA does not capture stray and at-large cats, but does lend humane traps to residents between May 1 and October 15 (weather dependent). City of Lloydminster Peace Officers will pick up cats trapped in a City trap.

Cat traps can be rented from the Lloydminster and District SPCA on a first come, first served basis.

It is illegal to put an animal in distress, so you will need to check the trap frequently and will have to provide food, water and shelter for the trapped cat until it can be brought to the Lloydminster and District SPCA. The cat must also not be injured by the method you use to trap and transport it. Please contact the SPCA during business hours at 780-875-2809 to book an appointment to bring the cat to the SPCA.
