    We had an issue with cats for a while
    We found that white pepper powder was the best deterrent

    Then we found an better deterrent

    We bought a cat!

    Suddenly other cats were not quite as interested in our garden once our new deterrent started telling them to meow-off!

    After considering catching all the cats that used to come and crap in our garden and then taking them to the local cat rehoming charity claiming they were strays, we settled on four of these based on the high number of positive reviews:

    STV610 MEGA SONIC REPELLER - AMAZON

    We no longer have cats in our garden but you do need to make sure the batteries haven't run out as they moment they do the cats return to pumping the brown stuff in to your flower beds. Gone up in price by the looks of it as we paid £14.99 each a few months back.

    I have 2 (Old) cats and 2 (Young) Patterdale Terriers. It's fun to watch neighboring cats entering the garden thinking they can better our elderly cats only to find 2 Terriers bearing down on them at a rapid rate :-)

    It's like watching a Tom and Jerry rip off! :-)

    Only if you have a male cat. We used to have a dog and didn't have a cat problem. Now we have a female cat and in the evenings our back garden resembles a certain area of Amsterdam.

    LOL Only if she's a breeding queen. Get her spayed and it should be fine. That being said, when Enzo was a Tom he boffed a spayed cat (at least I hope she's spayed). Our vets wouldn't neuter until he was 6 months old and he was booked in all ready when he got hold of the neighbours tortoiseshell female and mounted her at 5 months old....

    LOL I love cats too but I've got no problems spraying my own or others' cats with harmless water to deter them (although mine will take several squirtings before he decides enough is enough) and that video is genius. Love it.

    Try spraying the affected areas with Citronella Oil from a hand or garden sprayer, its cheap enough, used in those garden lanterns to repel bugs etc.
    I spray my deck and it deters both Cats and Foxes re-apply every couple of weeks April to August. The cubs have just begun to emerge and they are real trouble.
    Not sure if its the smell or that once its on the fur they hate it...

    A cat hater would tell you to feed them starfish. Cats love starfish. It also poisons them.

    Starfish does kill cats. I wasn't advocating it!
