I'd urge anyone with a cat problem to contact Jessica - I don;t expect it will solve the problem but at least it might make cat owners think about their responsibilities.
If cat owners claim their cats are wild animals - fine, they need to be controlled and licensed. If the cats are domestic pets - take responsibility for them - train them to use litter trays in your house or garden and take them for walks on leads. These days it is a myth to suggest that the domestic cat needs to roam free. Cats are the ultimate "no responsibilty" pets. Why do non cat owners have to expend good money on "cat deterrents" ...........come on Gardeners and wildlife lovers.....get a grip.............it is not your responsibility.
OR garden? Who puts a litter tray in their garden? I've never read such a daft thing. Also why do you think its a good idea to put cats on a lead? They're not a pack animal. Not every cat is going to "enjoy" being on a lead. You cannot fully train a cat like a dog. Cats love to wonder. They're not going to trot all the way back to your own garden to do toilet business in a litter tray or in the garden.
I'm just a little angry how you think cats can be treated like dogs. I can only assume you're as angry with have had cats do their pooping and what not in your garden. If so I'm sorry to hear that. My nan had trouble with cats digging up her bulbs =/. I hope you, and all others find better and more practical solutions though
