Cats Under Manufactured Home?I just bought a manufactured home in Florida. Now I have stray cats under my house. I have a small dog, it drives her nuts! You can hear the bricks move; it sounds like someone is breaking in. I closed some spaces where it had holes under my home. It worked for awhile, but they are back again two nights in a row. What can I do? Can they make their way into my house? This is my concern.
