Bottom line- DONT POISON CATS- not only is it against the basic animal cruelty law, but if you poison someone's pet cat that happens to be in your yard (there are no leash laws for cats here, nor in most places- only dogs) then they could sue the HEC out of you for vet bills, or worse if you killed their beloved pet.
True...despite the fact that there may b laws in place prohibiting wandering cats (as there are here), deliberately exposing a cat that enters your property to a toxic substance could cost you dearly (as it did a chap who mixed tuna with antifreeze here...$5000 plus legal fees).
