Keeping Cats off of Garden - Tried and Tested Ideas only please

Hi Lou


In the UK, with dog fouling, there is no need to prove beyond doubt which dog was responsible, all it takes is a witness testimony and a fine can be issued. I know it sounds unworkable, but that is exactly what happens. Maybe cats are next?!


Sorry to hear about your previous experience with neighbours, sounds awful :(

I just did a quick search on the legal aspect of cat poo and found someone almost went to prison because of an incident in his home! http://catrepellentguide.com/get-ultrasonic-cat-protection-dont-go-to-jail/


There really needs to be some legal protection from cat defecating in other people property....

They will defecate on grass, concrete and on top of tightly spread netting. Unfortunately, it is something we all have to put up with until some form of licensing is introduced and enforced.

 This is what I cannot understand, how come dog owners get fined for their dog's pooing, but cat owners do not? Cats are worse because they will come into your garden and do it, but dogs generally do it out in the open.


Just because its easier to manage a dog because they are not out unsupervised does not mean the same hygiene issue should be ignored just because cats have more freedom of movement...???

@ JDVS If you're water is metered, there are scarecrow cat repellents that use a integral water supply, handy if you cannot get a hose to the garden easily or permanantly, of if you are on a metered supply. You can check it out at http://catrepellentguide.com/ultrasonic-cat-repellents/guardener-a201-2-0/ hope that helps!
