Keep your lawn short
Keep your borders full
Keep your vege patch fenced off
Then make a small sandpit with cover from rain (under shrub/tree) to encourage them to do their business there and plant a small herb garden area in the sun for the cats to enjoy sleeping in.
Happy cat, happy you.
All too often people forget that cats eat or deter vermin. The very vermin that would nibble on your veges, dig up your bulbs, destroy your flower beds. Strip the bark from your shrubs and trees.
I would much prefer the odd bit of doodoo to rats, rabbits, pigeons, mice, voles, squirrels etc. etc.
As a gardener I live with the fact that whoever or whatever poo's in the garden I will tread in it lol! Like anything else you get used to it and deal with it. Trust me fox is the worst! Makes me gag every time
