I love cats, but hate them messing in my garden and scratching up my veg seeds in my veg plot, I put netting over my veg seeds to stop them doing it, what did I get, they pooped all over the netting, probably telling me off as they could not scratch. We have so many cats around where I live and they all seem to want to poo in my garden, over my front and back lawns, they just squat their backside over my plants even the prickly ones, they do not seem to care where they do it and the stench is bad makes me feel sick and you have that stench up your nose for hours. I have used everything the shops sell, teabags with olbas oil, pepper, orange peel, chilli pepper was my last resort last summer, was okay until it rains, garden is probably full of cat poo by now, or hopefully the rain keeps them away. We need some good ideas that work. Saw on Alan Titchmarsh this afternoon 30.01.2014 that they do deterrents that spurt a shot of water, but why should we have to pay for someone elses cat messing every where.
My neighbour has a black cat that sits under his ivy hedge waiting for the birds at his feeder, lost count of the birds that it has on a daily basis when the weather is dry, he has even cut the hedge up so the birds can see it.
