I'm bowing out of this thread.

Sadly true but cats aren't controllable which is reflected in the law, they are classed as wild animals and legally you have no responsibility for their actions.

I mentioned dogs only because SOME cats will stay out if they are regularly discouraged.


If you have a cat yourself (and I am bored of mentioning this on here), if you put a litter tray outside in your own garden under shelter, your own cat will often use it rather than going into other people's gardens.

The ultrasonic devices have some effect, the water squirting ones do too but you have to keep moving them as cats learn fast.


Thought about getting a dog?

Hosta, we do see the odd one on the Surrey/Hants border but not often.

That's actually a very good idea. I will have the new bed in the front garden once the drive is done in April.
