cats

you've got to love them. except maybe when they decide your garden, much of which has barely survived winter, makes a jolly toilet. t says that ornage peel puts them off. i'm willing to try it. otherwise kitty will be getting a nasty surprise if i catch him!

a bottle or clear jar of water left lying on the lawn is supposed to freak them out too - the reflections...

a good suggestion. i think the cat in question is too lazy to be bothered getting frightened, and the other one, who we're assuming is not guilty, is too stupid

same problem here, the air rifle is looking like an attractive solution

As you say, you've got to love them. We've got 3 cats. You've got a job on discouraging a cat from doing what it wants!

A suggestion (I've just thought of it so I don't know if it works): Cats like pooing in freshly dug soil, so why not create a toilet area?

...And did you know, Charles Mingus toilet trained his cat??

Dog available. Fully house-trained, eats left-overs and used to sleeping outside. 2 days hire at a most reasonable rate.

at one stage we had old cd's hanging from plants and used a water pistol- our neighbours thought we had mental health issues! .....but we won in the end
