If this cat is attacking other cats, you could sue the owner for the cost of treating any injuries caused.Many cat owners think that because under the livestock and animals act 1971, cats were given the 'rights to roam'they are not responsible for any damage the cat may cause.That is not the case.Under common law, the owners have a duty of care to ensure they take reasonable care to stop the cat causing damage to property and other cats.If the RSPCA know who owns this cat but are refusing to say because of the data protection act, make a complaint to the police.Tell them the cat has been identified and the owners are known to the RSPCA but they are refusing to disclose this information.The police will then be able to ask them for the owners name and address and pass it onto you.You will have to make an allegation that this cat is causing problems for the police to act.When you have the owners details, write to them explaining what problems the cat is causing, and state that you will hold them responsible if your cat is attacked and injured.If this cat is causing serious problems, keep a copy of the letter, and send it by recorded delivery.If possible, take photos if the cat comes onto your property
