    Default Dilemma

    So I'm not to sure if ive put this in the right place Appoligies if I have..... so last week we got new neighbours who seem to own a cat....I'm not really a cat person but don't mind them hanging around as long as their not bothering my dogs well anyway since they've moved in their cat has took to emptying it's bowls in my garden & every day I'm having to go out clean the cat poo up before I can even let the dogs out..I don't want them messing/ sniffing it...I was wondering if anyone has any suggestion on how to stop said cat from coming in my garden and doing its business?? i'm at a loss ... I've tried speaking to the own about this but it's fell on deaf ears, I don't really think their the cleanest of people when it comes to cleaning up after their pets or in general they also have two oldish dogs which they don't seem to clean up after either they back garden is full of feaces etc

    This may sound mean and forgive me if it is but its totally harmless to secretly spray the cat with a water bottle, most cats hate water and if you can catch it in your yard give i a little swift spray of water when you can and maybe it will stay home.
    Its so hard being the queen!!!

    Cat be gone, they sell it in a can, spray a little on the dirt and I guarantee they will never come into your garden again.

    Will I be able to pick this up at most pet stores? And is it safe to use around the dogs?

    They should sell something like that around you, I apologize I'm in L.A. and I didn't realize your in Blackpool. Anywhere where they sell live plants and shrubs should be able to give you good tips. The internet is full of all natural rat,,,,i mean cat deterrents. @rubymummy

    @dolphin haha rat is defiantly the right word for it..it's frustrating how people can let their cats roam all over carrying out the business in people's gardens etc but if we where to let our pooches roam & carry out there business in people's gardens etc well that would be a whole different story ... I should imagine Id be able to get it from over here or maybe Amazon

    I found this online, and thought it had some great tips… especially the coffee grounds, and citrus peels!!! Good luck...

    Watching this thread.... we have a few feral cats that wander our yard, i want them to stay at the lower end of our yard to keep the mice and snakes out, but I do not want them up in the patio area where the dogs tend to relax

    Good luck Donna!

    Last night went to take the pups out at around 9 PM... guess who/what was on the patio!!?? Feral cat #1... I did not see him till after I opened the door... Cheli took off like a bat out of hell and all I got to see was a tail fly into the woods -- this morning I find his 'gift'... GROWL!! Also, keep in mind, cat poo is a delicacy to a dog, something about it they have a hard time not want to chew it up
