We get a visit every night from a big black cat with a beautiful fluffy tail. He comes in through our cat flap between 11 and early morning hours and eats all of our cat’s food. He is very clever, and even opens the dry food container to help himself. We started to lock the cat flap at night, but then our cat cannot get out, and wakes us all up at 2 am with howling. We are now forced to keep it open again, but this morning, all of the cat food has gone again and the container has been opened. Katherine was woken up with the culprit's scratching while opening the container, all after I had to let our cat out at 1.30 this morning.
We know how he looks, because we caught him in the act a couple of times. Would it be possible for the owner (if you know who you are), to really feed your cat up, and possibly keep him indoors for a few nights to retrain him? It is getting expensive and we really need uninterrupted sleep! We don’t really want to go to the lengths of changing cat flaps etc..
