    Help with unwanted cat cr*p!

    Some neighbourhood moggies have taken to using a section of my garden as as toilet.
    Any tips on how I can (legally and humanely) stop them?

    BB gun.

    Get a dog.

    google prikka strips, get them from primrose london cheapish

    They say empty plastic cola bottles refilled with water keeps them away, the reflection makes them think another cat is about........its free so worth a try.

    I have seen adverts in mags about plants you put in the garden that is supposed do stop the cats from coming in as they dont like the smell sorry dont no the name of them but you could ask at the garden center

    Put some trimmings from a spiny or thorny plant (Roses, Pyracantha, Hawthorn, Holly) where they like to dig. The sharp plants will discourage them.

    Aren't moth balls supposed to help? Or am I thinking of something else lol.

    We have had same problem this weekend! Just bought a spray from Asda called Catapult! I dont know yet if it works but thought it was a great product name.:roll:

    Not being someone who enjoys clearing dead birds and cat poo out of the garden, I find a small pile of stones by both the front and back door to be my deterrant of choice.

    Thanks for all the great advice. Some helpful tips. I'll try some Coleus Canina.

    I do have a dog but he's still a pup so not really wised-up about his arch-nemesis just yet.

    get a dog to wee all over your garden

    unwanted eh.. try ebay, people will buy anything!

    may have to get one of those plants.. one keeps scratching my shed

    Tell the neighbours that if they can't control a four legged cat maybe they'll have better luck with a three-legged one.

    Ha,ha. Trouble is there's at least 5 cats around the way and I don't know which is responsible.
    I think it must be karma because a few years ago my next door neighbour asked me to keep an eye on my cat's toilet habits as there was cat cr*p all over his vegetable patch........:oops:

    you must show the cat you are not threatened by its poo!!

    take an even bigger dump in the exact spot the cat takes its, and it'll never come again!!

    You cant control where or what a cat does - they are not like dogs - they will go where they like when the want - this is in their nature and is not the owners fault. the only way to stop them is by using deterrent methods

    If a cat is doing it's business on your property, kill the (insert appropriate expletive).

    Seriously, poison-soaked cat food, throw a brick at it, elaborate traps involving razors.

    You have the right to not let your property be defaced by some animal.

    i presume you dont own cats otherwise you certianly wouldnt be saying such down right nasty things, actually you probably dont even have a pet

    My nan has the same problem, shes tried everything
    Bark chippings are ment to stop them,
    And bottles with water in left on grass, But makes garden look crap
    Nothing worked for her.

    So now she has a water pistol and a BB gun handy, Bless her

    No bark chippings definately wont work - i had some pellet type things that cats dislike the smell of but when it rains you have to put them down again which is a pain
    im definately going to try the plant suggested by others as have just planted a new vegetable patch and dont need my plants being dug up!!

    You know what cats dislike the smell of?

    Their own blood - if you can get a couple of pints of that on the grass they tend to not come back.

    Try putting these things on ur lawn especially where they tend to "go"

    Citronella, cayenne pepper, coffee grounds, pipe tobacco, lavender oil, lemon grass oil, citronella oil, peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, and mustard oil, Harvard's Cat Repellent

    Get some dried ground chilli and sprinkle it where they squat and see how high they jump. lol

    Alternatively see if your local Zoo will sell you some Lion poo to place in your garden to scare the bejesus out of them.
