As you suspected, this subject has frequently been discussed on here.  I think the general consensus is that the Water Scarecrow is about the only deterrent that works consistently for everyone. 

If you put 'cats' into the search bar at the top of the page you'll get links to all the other threads discussing the problem.  Sadly they sometimes get quite heated. 

Walking on flower beds

With great trepidation - the Shady Bank is quite high up - I just look for spaces to put my feet and hope for the best - I only have to do it to get to the climbers at the back - the rest I can just about reach if I stretch - as long as my back's behaving.  

My difficulty is getting down from the Shady Bank - I'm sometimes stuck up there until OH comes to rescue me 

Make Sense????
