Plea to readers on dealing with deadly tom-cat

While happy to read about Tutti-Frutti, the Newry cat that at 23 is staking a claim to being the world's oldest feline (June 19), perhaps readers could advise on dealing with a tom determined not to let any other creature live for another day.

We've had more murders than in an episode of Midsomer. This week's tally includes two birds and one mouse. Some will say he is only behaving as nature intended but, really, we'd prefer it just to stop. Aside from putting a bell round his neck (too dangerous) is there any other way to curb his bloodlust?
