One of the worst things to happen while taking a casual stroll outdoors is stepping into a steaming pile of shit. Whether it's fresh or old, big or small, no one wants to be flicking animal shit (or human shit for that matter) from the grooves of their sneakers.
So you can imagine how royally pissed off one Welsh mum was when her four-year-old daughter came running inside covered in cat poo.
Emma Neville said: "[My daughter] picked a ball up out [of] the garden and it [had] cat poo on it. [It] was all in her finger nails. I was so angry.
"I have [cats pooing in the garden] every day but that day it was all over her toys."
While most of us would get angry or let rip at the cat gods, the Merthyr Tydfil local went a bit far to ensure it didn't happen again.
She posted a message on Facebook to say she had left poisoned chicken around her property for any cat that wanted to do its business in or around her home.
Emma wrote: "If my daughter picks up cat shit because she is playing in her own garden, I will go around everyone's house killing them myself.
"Don't think for a second I'm joking.
"The poison is [in] my garden and I don't care, my kids will come first before any animal. Report me for it I don't care."
Well, one person, who owns a cat, reported the mum-of-three to the cops because she genuinely thought her tabby was in danger. But when police arrived on Monday night, they couldn't find any of the laced chook anywhere.
The neighbour said: "I don't believe it was an 'empty threat'. She made a post with pictures of the cat faeces in her garden and the poison onto Facebook threatening the animals and said 'if your cat comes home bard don't blame me'.
"I offered to go and clean out her garden once or twice a week, or even everyday if she wanted, completely free of charge. However she denied my offer and continued to put the animals at risk."
Emma admits that threatening to murder cats was, um, not the best thing in the world, especially on a public forum like Facebook.
"I feel stupid now I did it but it was just to let my street know I've had enough then it just went viral, that [is] it," she said. "There was no poison at all.
"No cats have been harmed at all. I just put that status up because my street is full of cats and they all using my garden every day."
While her apology might seem genuine, she's angered the shit out of animal organisations and charities. Usk New Start Cat Rescue has blacklisted her from adopting any rescues while the RSCPA has said it's 'shocked' by what was written.
