I"m not a cat person. The only pet I have is a Betta fish. But now I want to chain a few hungry cats to the trailer. There's a mouse hunting cat from my neighbor's property who is always stalking on my property, I welcome his presence.

We have a cat named Bubbles that lives down the street in a garden shed. He hunts lots of mice leaving them on door steps of the neighbours. Welcome to have!

The only way to keep them away is to build a steel box large enough for your motorhome, then weld the doors shut or suspend it from a helicopter.

Or save all that trouble/expense by going to the nearest animal shelter and adopting a big cat. My late 22# Maine Coon, neutered Male, did a fine job of rodent control.

My guess is you never watched Saturday morning cartoons when you were a kid, your cat can't be everywhere at once. We had 2 cats 3 years ago, still had mice in the TT, so I fired the cats for dereliction of duty.


Actually, had the vet put both of them down from old age. 1 from arthritis, the other quit eating.

Back when I was watching Sat AM cartoons we were still allowed to shoot rodents. I lived on a farm and the ones i didn't get, the cats did at night.

Rattlesnakes will work. Will likely keep other intruders out also.
