I use a water pistol and rarely hiting them, it's just that they don't like it and eventually should avoid coming back. Throwing stones at someone elses pet is wrong. Deterent and no aggression is needed. If my cats had pooped in someone elses's garden and then started chucking it over my fence, I'd be very upset as that is then being aggressive. All it takes is someone to say "Please, could you pick up this poo as your cat did it..." i wouldn't mind. I would even put some of my successful granules down that I mentioned before for them. Cats are loved animals and cared for by most owners. We have a ginger and white, ugly monster of a cat that bullies my two and terrorises the neighbourhood - it even has upturned, slitty, evil eyes but the owners must love it, yak. But it's cards have been marked and gets a glass of water chucked at it, I wouldn't hurt it. Afterall, it's not its fault that it's an ugly, fat, unhappy excuse for a pussy.

Thanks obelixx. Um, wondering if i should put plastic studs under the feet of chairs - might be a hard job for me that as I can't even hang a picture straight! Wonky chairs! I've lived in -30 once - Germany - didn't happen often that cold though. Tale: brand new car, can of coke left in it overnight and it exploded and left coke icicles on the ceiling! Came off easily, luckily. Wow, without snow though, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Beautiful blue sky here in Lancashire today! What a contrast to yesterday.

Oh, this is such a funny thread! Embarrased myself by looking at durex in Sains - was so fancily packaged and some bizarre name like silky smooth (thought it was wax for legs) and at the end of an aisle in a cardboard stand. Reading intently, realised what it was! It's just not something that I would choose to stand and read in such an open place.

What's the weather like in your area?

It's been a moody day today in Lancashire. Put a jacket on for the first time. Dark clouds and some rain. A bit windy. Leaves starting to fall from sambucus and some turning a coppery red - beautiful indicator of seasons. No change yet to flowering cherry tree. Late planted sunflowers (reduced at B & Q) just coming out and will be drenced with rain.

obelixx, cor blimey what a lot of work you have put in to your table! I won't be putting teak oil on mine again and will let it weather naturally and hopefully I will get that much wanted silver-grey! You must live somewhere very cold!

I bought some granules from a smallish garden centre. They were only £3.50. Hang on, I'll go to the shed and get the make.. Vitax 'Scent off Granules' £3.49. These work! I posed this question a few weeks ago on here and got loads of helpful replies. Kept me quite amused waiting with my super soaker too! I have a glass of water next to my back door and chuck it at them too. By the way I love cats and have two - mine have a litter tray and son built a litter tray house thing for outside complete with a tiled roof and so no mess inside the house. Wish he'd go into business building useful things and it looks really good.

But it saves on electiricity as i don't need to hoover up my biscuit crumbs inside the house and I have to have a perch to contemplate where and what to plant! And cus I work so hard on my garden, it allows mre time spent in there as I can rest inbetween doing strenuous jobs... I will have to start wiping the kitchen table now after eating - no more eating outside until I get used to the dropping temperatures and then will sit with coat on. Must go and see if some sort of garden fire pit thing is on offer at B & Q...
