Keeping Cats off of Garden - Tried and Tested Ideas only please

Posted: 27/07/2012 at 15:46

Thanks everyone it appears I am not alone lol  I especially like the scarecrow sprinkler.  Could do with one of those at work as well to keep the deer from eating the roses in the wedding garden!  Saw a little munctjac today (well his behind as he ran off anyway) doing just that!

Only downside is having the water on all the time (we have a water meter).

I have a few skewer type things I've collect over the years which I put near prized possessions Jenny if only it worked on slugs lol   I do try to make things harder for them, they always seem to find away though.  Not many more possibilities for them now though.

I do have one weapon of choice I'll share with you and that's a fairy liquid (sorry don't mean to advertise lol) bottle that I fill right to the top with water.  Its actually really good and shoots water at quite a distance.  Unfortunately I'm not a good aim except when i got one in my guinea pig pen and threw the bottle at him square in his back.  It is such a dopey cat though as it comes back for more.  My guess its that one who likes my garden as its personal toilet!

I would like to know a few ideas about keeping cats fom using the garden as a toilet as I'm having trouble with them in my vegetable garden.  I would like ideas from people who have actually used these ideas and they have worked.

Many thanks for your help in advance.
