hi i use to have problems with cats before pooing  in my veg patch when there is a balled patch of earth the thing i use is moth balls the white round ones i found them hard to get hold of until i looked on ebay theres loads on there to make them go a bit further i break them up a little with a hammer and scatter them about and to be honest ive never had a problem with them since they are the only thing i use now.
