Cats have to poo somewhere, just wish it wasn't in the wrong place! A bluetit for a cat is like a chicken for us. Cats aren't the only ones with killer instincts. Humans have been pretty awful through the centuries.

My son planted an Eleagnus which worked pretty well. It's evergreen. Planting after leylandii you would have to enrich the soil with compost or rotted manure and dig it in.

Looks like a dandelion to me too. I think it's tap root was damaged (slug or something) and it's had to develop new roots which meant it was deprived of nourishment during growth.
