I have tried so many methods of stopping cats using my lawn and flower beds as their toilet, NOT MY CATS I DON'T HAVE ANY!!!!  I have used lavender oil mixed with water, tea bags doused with muscle joint spray, and lavender oil.  Holly leaves sprinkled on the soil where they visit, water bottles on the lawn, and one of those battery operated thingy that emits a high pitched noise that people cannot hear.  I must say that somethings seems to work but not sure which.  A combination of things to try altogether seems to work for me. Sooo annoying to have unwanted 4 legged visitors.  I have not tried Jeyes, so that's another to add to my list!

If Jeyes works that will be on my shopping list. Cats make such a mess of the lawn. I've got curry plants in the garden that is said to keep them away, well no they don't but the plants smell really nice when it's been raining so thats a bonus.
