Ideas anyone?

grow some lillies
some of the things that have been suggested is to put a broken wing mirror or fill a clear botle with wtaer and put it in the path the cat is likely to take.

Is there a particular area in your garden or is it the whole thing? I had problems with cats defecating on my vegatable patch. Some red onion went down with some bamboo shoots (about 25cm high) and they soon stayed away.

This must be one of the most asked questions on hukd .......

I didn't know they don't like lillies. I love lillies so I can plant some no problem.

They're over the whole garden which is a big garden too!

I've seen some mentalists put water filled bottles in their garden/s.

Just go to Liverpool and buy a pitbull from a 30 year old grandmother.

My partner tried to spray them with the hosepipe but that didn't even work!!! I don't want their mess in here plus we've got nesting birds with a lot of babies and the cats are scaring them off.

I'd buy a pitbull but it would probably kill the kids instead of the cats!!! oO

I have these,you might need a few if you have a large garden,but it's worth the expense if you no longer have to clean up other peoples cat poo.

not sure if its any use - but heard clear marbles - it seems the sun shining on them and reflecting scares them off - not tried it though.

My mum puts all her coffee granuales from the caffetiere where the cats go and swears by that.

Good luck !

That's true but would be a decent price to pay.

Cat's **** everywhere are ten times more annoying than children.

We were considering buying one of those, might look into it further.

Some good ideas there, I suppose its trial and error. Thanks!

I have one of them, it's either that or shouting at the top of my voice after cleaning up cat poop, that the next cat I catch on my Garden will be executed.

It seems that cats aren't very popular, thought it was just me being picky! Horrible creatures!

Actually there is a stronghold of cat freaks on this forum. They're probably just AFK out walking them :|

I'd tried all the old tales of plastic bottles,pepper,bleach,orange peel etc etc

Nothing worked until i bought the sonic repeller.

I love cats, but I can understand that having someone elses crapping in your garden would not be nice. I heard broken egg shells work if it's a particular area they go, they won't walk on them, and also citrus peel.

I had a problem with manky cats doing their business and digging up my borders. I planted lily bulbs a couple of months ago and they sprouted up in no time - haven't had any problems since. Planted 3 bulbs each in a few different corners to space them out. Good luck!

I have it on good authority that cats have an aversion to flame throwers.

Might be a long shot, but worth a try.

FYI it's not that cats don't like lilies - they are highly toxic to them and a tiny bit of the pollen can kill them within 24 hours.

Worst idea ever unless you want to kill them.

But did you try upturned plastic forks in the area they use? Stick the handle in the ground enough to hold it in place with the fork protruding a couple of inches, trust me they will soon find somewhere else to go.

This is a similar method just uses a different means to achieve it and looks neater

The cats are smart , they just keepaway from lillies so it just works as a deterent, Unlikely they will go round sniffing the lillies.

The sonic things looks nicer than chicken wire and/or plastic forks X)

A gun makes a more permanent solution, plus you can make a fortune returning the cats you "found in the road" from the details on the posters left on the lamp posts a week or so later. Pays for the gun in no time! X)

Do those sonic things work on foxes Deb8z?

we tried everything in our last house and the only thing that worked was me chucking jugs of cold water at them, they soon got sick of being soaking wet, now in the new house we have decking and patio , they hate the decking, and did start messing on the patio until i went out to clean it one day with detol floor cleaner ( only thing i had in the house) and hot water, so far they have stayed away, also killed off most of the spiders too!
the other thing ive heard works is if you get a female dog to wee around the boarders the cats dont like it and stay away, ive not tried that one though
