I have just noticed this thread and have to agree wholeheartedly with "Clari" and Blue Onion......I am not a cat lover and suffered years back with neighbours cats messing in my garden and raiding my bins!
At the risk of being shot down in flames for this I think the majority of cat owners buy cats for an easy life, I regard cats as a lazy persons pet........the nature of cats is to roam free, which is usually in a neighbour's garden. At least dog owners (in the main) are responsible, but cats aren't so easy to control. Any cat-owning neighbour that I had the misfortune of living close to never cared about what their cats got up to. Yes, cats will and do roam free, usually in someone else's garden.......so I used one of those water blaster things that children play with and big jugs of water to throw at the cats when they came into my garden. I high pressure hose is always handy and effective on the cats........but the owners were usually less than happy about this.....tough!
