Legal way to get rid
Get a cat to get rid of cats? YOU ARE INSANE

The above is the MOST absurd advice I've ever heard of. Get your own cat to get rid of stray cats? That's like throwing gasoline on the fire. IDIOTS.
Here's some further clues for you cat-brained fools.
Trapping as a solution is a failed concept from Day-1.
Considering that there are now about 150 million feral-cats just in the USA alone, and 86 million pet-cats (60 million of which are still allowed to kill all wildlife), this means that the cat-population is already oversaturated for a long time now. There's only 311 million people in the USA. 2 cats now exist for every 3 people, from infant to senior. All thanks to those who outlawed destroying them in a faster, more efficient, often more-humane, and more cost-effective manner by shooting them. While they also promoted their slow, random-chance, inefficient, and failed trapping programs.
For example: I alone was able to completely rid my land and woods of all feral-cats by shooting them. Feral-cats had completely decimated the food-chain here, destroying not only all the prey that their cats disemboweled and tortured for their play-toys, but all the predators that depended on those animals for food, starving all native predators to death as well. (Now THERE'S *real* animal cruelty for you, caused by *all* cat-lovers!) Shooting cats on your land is perfectly legal where I live, and is even a more humane method when done right than agonizingly slow and terrorizing trapping methods and animal-shelter methods. One moment they are happily stalking some helpless animal to torture, the next they are dead and don't even know what happened. Making your land 100% cat-free is something that feral-cat advocates all put together haven't been able to solve nation-wide for 30-40 years. Here on my land, only 1 person in only 2 seasons was able to accomplished what they could not in all these decades. Why is that? It's time for you all to grow a spine and do what needs to be done.
Nobody wants more than 86 million cats for pets. Now take into consideration their exponential yearly growth-rate of x^5.4. An average litter of 5 new cats every 5-6 months. 2 cats can become 42 in only a year's time. Increasing at the rate of powers of 5.4 EVERY YEAR. No amount of people trapping them (if you could even get them all to enter traps), nor valuable resources (materials for traps, transport costs, vet costs, etc.), man-hours, nor money will ever catch up to their growth rate. You now have an ecological, human-health, animal-welfare, social, and financial disaster on your hands, ALL thanks to cat-lovers and TNR proponents. The faster that cats can be destroyed the better it MIGHT be. Even when using guns and having all stray and feral cats shot on-sight we might still not be able to catch up to their exponential population-growth rate. Not even until every last land animal (including humans) is gone from this earth, due to cats destroying the whole food-chain, with nothing but cannibalistic cats left walking the land. Just ask any TNR group how many cats they've trapped this year. They haven't even begun to scratch the surface of the problem that they are only exacerbating with their blatant lies.
Your best bet is to make cat-ownership AND care-taking of feral-cats a FELONY with hefty fines or prison sentences for anyone failing to comply until this problem that they created is brought under control by any and all means possible. Shoot-on-sight is, without a doubt, the fastest, most economical (0.3 cent to 3 cents per cat depending on ammo prices), and most effective method available. This is also the only method that doesn't endanger nor harass any other animals with non-discriminatory random-chance traps. Though avoid poisons if at all possible, that once entered into the food-chain, will go on to destroy more of the very wildlife that you are hoping to save from destruction by cats. Whatever you do though, please bury or incinerate the carcasses so all the deadly diseases that cats now carry won't go on to further infect the native wildlife, nor any other humans that might come in contact with them.
Here is an interesting post from someone who believed in all the lies she was told about TNR practices, found at http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/science/2011/05/the-secret-lives-of-feral-cats/
"I have been battling a feral cat population explosion on my farmette for 7 years. TNR does not work, as the trapped and neutered cats do not keep new cats from moving in and adding kittens. I have trapped over 25 kittens, tamed them, and found homes for them, but every spring there are dozens more. I have spent countless dollars neutering females and males, but they just keep coming! I have few wild birds now, fewer snakes, and there are bunny parts all over my property (cats must not particularly like the back feet). I wish there was a birth-control feed available, since many of these feral cats donít come near the traps even when hungry. I wish every pet owner would neuter their cats so that these colonies werenít added to.
These are not happy feral cats, they frequently have infected eyes, worms, and are skinny and mangey. I donít know what the answer is, but even in the country, a feral cat doesnít live a secure, comfortable life.

And YOU TOO can have a financially-stressed life ruled by cats and cat-lovers and have all your native wildlife destroyed JUST LIKE THIS if you also believe in TNR *LIES*.
