They make great pillows.

3. Inside? Just enjoy the way they control everything.
Outside? I am told to spread mothballs. Don't know if it works but your yard will smell like a long stored wool coat.

4. No, they're all inside. To go out would take effort.
Ah, well, I'll just mop around them.

9. Let them sleep,
yes, they're planning, but for the time being they're harmless.

10. Brush them, save the fur, spin it, and crochet kitty blankies with it.
Lemons, lemonade, you know!

11. Capture one of them, and mail it to me, please
I've been looking for a pet! :)

Seriously, if the cats aren't being a nuisance, let them hang around. They'll keep mice and similar critters away from your house.

electric blanket, get under the covers and in minutes, they'll all be sleeping in one place.

Edit to add: I just realized that your user ID is "rug"!!!

14. Give them food and water, and enjoy them.
Just watching a cat lowers blood pressure and calms the mind. They are role models for living stress free.

I love cats. They live in the moment, enjoying whatever there is to be enjoyed in their environment. The way they stretch with languorous pleasure is almost sinful. They don't have to do another thing to earn their keep, but as a previous poster said, they'll keep rodents, etc, under control.

You obviously have something in your yard that these felines like, so count yourself blessed and just enjoy them.
