if you want cats to stay out of your garden then you have two choices, either use 45 degree angle on the top of your fencing to stop them getting in and out that way or make your garden unpleasant by using a super soaker water pistol aimed at the body of the cat (not the head!) you have to make sure the cats can't see you when you 'shoot' them, otherwise they learn that the garden is only out of bounds while you're visible. the shot of water has to be akin to an 'act of god' to be really effective.
safe, cheap and unlikely to upset your neighbours and fellow forum members. as for the petition... you're wasting your time, and dog wardens? birmingham has one for the whole city, so good luck getting central govt to cough up for 'cat wardens'.
