Cats fouling our garden

Morning all, a short time ago we were plagued by the cat problem ,we tried almost everything to deter them but my partner Kate was getting very upset with the mess and damage being done to our garden,long story short after spending hundreds of pounds fencing and such,i stopped them by spraying the ready to use jeyes fluid around our property on the ground and on fences,if Kate planted anything new i sprayed around the plant and newly disturbed soil ,careful not to touch any plants as it does kill them, a little jeyes,understand at no time would we hurt Any animal , But it worked and i watched the next morning as next doors cat on his way to our garden smelled the front path and walked on, in the last year we were there we had only I think 2 mess,s left before it was piles , i sprayed each week then after a month i sprayed only every other month and it worked with no harm to anyone or any cats, where we are now our neighbor has a cat so we tried the friend way and after giving it treats now and again he visits and leaves nothing but a purrrr,so that works now for us but i know and understand how it can upset people  So have a great day ,its a grand day erein Norfolk but tomorrow very wet but eh we need it

Cats fouling our garden

Myth or not in the past 3 weeks the birds nesting in our front tree gave us a lot of pleasure and laughs while they were deciding whether or not to use the tree, they did and were great to watch,another 2 sparrows made there nest in our Fuchsias tree (Large) in the back part of the garden,they also became very friendly and were nice to have , last week one of the birds in the front was lying dead under the tree also an egg was a couple of feet away, this morning i had to clean a tiny birds body didnt even have any feathers yet of the bench seat near to the nest which is now wrecked and abandoned Kate was very upset as was I, now i know this is nature but if were counting Cats 2 Birds and family 0, It seems to me the only people who get to enjoy the cats dont seem to get there mess, its there neighbors who suffer,and this complaint has been going on since ever and ever , whose responsibility is it ,we all know the answer Sad  it happening to so many people.
