stopping my cats pooing and weeing on my flower beds

Er no I think if you read back. There is not any ideas on protecting bedding but "advice"on what I should be doing with my cats.
Re cats. I think youl find some cats do prefer to be indoors. I have had one. But most want to be outside and so they should be they are outdoor animals and therefore cruel to keep them in. And cats do some good
If it wasnt for cats going outside we would be overrun with mice in some parts of london.

Cotty. That would be cruel to keep cats indoors. I assume you have never owned cats then.
Yes I appreciate it is a big problem. As I am also experiencing it myself. I know how frustrating it is. As a responsible cat owner. I go out of my way to ensure that I do all I can so that they are not being a nuisance. And come on forums like this for advice. Not to be lectured on responsible animal ownership.

Erm.ok. I understand its an issue for a lot of people. But should we make cats extinct because of it or find solutions? As far as I am aware. Having owned cats for many years is you cant make them go in a specific place. As stated in my original post. They DO have a litter tray. Which is more then most cat owners do when their cats go outside. !!

Hi there wondered if anyone can help. I have two cats both go toilet outdoors and one also uses a littertray which is outdoors. Issue is they and possibly other cats are using my flowerbeds as a littertray. Keep finding bulbs dug up too. V frustrating. I remove everything and have used orange peel. And used coffee grounds and the stay off powder which iscitrus based. But no success. Any ideas?

Has anyone reported success with garlic wash?and as it keeps showering a lot at mo does the wash sustain against rain or do i have to keep applying?.. i have just resorted to blue pellets but now have an abundance of green bottle flies attracted to the corpses i assume. Also what is the type of pellet in which the snails wander off to die? I have used before but cant remember what they called

Hi there wonder if anyone can help. I have a small water feature in my  garden that i keep finding mosquitos in. I thought keeping it on would help but the water doesnt move in all parts of it. I also have pets so can not put anything toxic in. Can anyone reccomend something to kill and keep them out?
