I have 3 cats, 3 large, covered litter trays, indoors, & a small section of my garden, at the back, which I keep dug over & 'patrolled' regularly. Their bit of garden is nicely dug over & loose, which makes it easy to keep clean. 1 of my cats will only use the litter trays....doesn't like the nasty, dirty soil on her paws, the other 2 use my dug over patch as well as the trays. To encourage them to use that area at first, I included a little of their cat litter, for them to get the idea. My neighbours have all been asked to keep an eye out for my lot, & if they look like they may be about to toilet, spray them with a water pistol or the hosepipe. To prevent toxoplasmosis, cats (&dogs) need to be wormed every 3 months, which mine are. They're also called in, before it gets dark, & the catflaps locked. Silent Roar is a big cat based product which I find effective, as well. It is a small clay granule, impregnated with the scent of big cats urine (lions, tigers, etc). It will last at least a month unless there is torrential rain to wash the scent away. It is sterile, so not harmful, & biodegradeable.
