Tell us about your cat disputes with your neighbours

After one disagreement over a cat resulted in a £20,000 court case, we would like to hear about your experiences

Cats: they love us, they hate us - they might even actually be genuinely attached to us .

But having a cat can make life difficult – especially when it comes to relationships with our neighbours. One dispute over a Maine Coon in west London resulted in a £20,000 court case this week. Jackie and John Hall were perplexed when their cat Ozzy kept coming home with a new collar – they soon found out that he had been making himself at home with a neighbour, who now has an injunction against her that will ban her interacting with the cat.

Have you had a nightmare with a neighbours’ cat? Or have your neighbours treated your own feline friend with disdain – or indeed too much affection? Has a neighbour’s cat moved itself into your house? And how did you manage that?

Research what type of pet is best suited for your family’s personality and lifestyle. Dogs require more attention, time and energy than cats do, so if you don’t enjoy walks or hikes in the outdoors, or can’t imagine getting up on cold winter mornings to take your pet out to potty, a cat may be more your style.
