Patricia, do you have a neighbour who could lend you a dog every now and then? That may work. You do have my sympathies even though I do like cats, they can be a nuisance.
You can buy products to deter cats, They're quite expensive and have to be renewed every few days, but as they're based on citrus extracts, I thought I'd try strewing orange peel around some tubs which cats decided would make a good toilet. You have to renew that every few days, too, but it's cheap and biodegradable. It seems to be working so far.
Our cat litter is recycled here and cats in the garden are not a worry its the skunks and racoons.I have three small ponds with gold fish that I cover every night,the racoons cant get to the fish so they get very mad and will destroy my plants by ripping them out of the ground and then leave a smelly gift which is more toxic to humans than cat poo.
