So I take it the advice is
1] Try sonic or water spray deterrents
2] Ensure no bare soil is available for cats to do their business
3] Try putting prickly mulch down (assume in areas where cats are known to do business)
My back garden is absolutely free of cats. But I do have trouble in the front. I've tried prickly bits of cuttings from prickly hedging but perhaps not enough. I've tried bottle filled water - stopped working. I've tried planting 'cat schoo' plants - they defecate right next to it (how insulting).
I really don't mind cats at all, but it's the possibility of disease/infection from their faeces that worries me. Saw a programme on toxoplasmosis the other day, nice! I'm forever washing hands etc but still worries me.
