Just leave em be, let em start tearing the trash and spraying everything and your wife will change her mind if you leave the messes for her to tend to. My wife had the same issue with the stray dogs until one day while she was cleaning up a ripped trash bag she watched a stray mutt attack one of the neighbor kids over his sandwich. She came insiode after the .22 herself.

The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
