Hi singing gardener. Thank you. Can I use bamboo instead. Im assuming its designed so they dont have access to a large clear area in which to go and then kick up the earth in?
And yes I think I have gathered a gardener and cat lover I also have strong opinions and hopes that the two can go side by side with some harmony. Theres always a solution. Its just a matter of finding it.

If you want to go cat owner bashing with your stupid comments by all means. I never said I was not concerned about other people's gardens. If I found a solution that would deter without harm I would gladly pass it on. I do have a littertray for their use and take fulll responsibility for them. But if you know cats at all. You can not physically stop them going somewhere they not like dogs you know.
Let me reiterate for you. I completely understand the frustration felt by pple who have this issue especially when they dont own cats. But there are organic methods of control that can be used and im just trying to find not getting much support in fact because everyone thats replied evidently are NOT cat owners. Judging by some of the suggestions definitely not.
So please only reply if you have some decent advice on gardening tips and natural deterents.

Wow. Im astounded. I am a responsible cat owner. I love all animals. Hence why my cats have bells on collars to protect wildlife. Both my cats are rescue so its not as if I had an input in earlier years and could "train "them to stay in. All animals are different. Dogs have their issues etc etc. With cats its mainly about where they go to toilet. Some of your answers come from those who are not speaking from any kind of direct experience. Dogs can be trained to leave cats alone
You cant teach a cat im the same way im afraid. To suggest I get a frigging fish is stupid. How bout we shut you humans in a house and lock the doors..hey youl have tv for stimulation hey. That should suffice! !It feels slightly like all your own frustration with the cat issue is being directed at me simply because im a cat owner. When you have no knowledge of my cats personally. My neighbours have no issue with them either. So whatever you are experiencing is not the same everywhere.
My original question was simply. Are their any methods you have tried successfully to deter them from your flowerbeds is all. Not to open up a cat debate. Fact is. They exist and they will roam around your garden.

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
