Cats Detest This Comments By: John Cullum on 2006-03-15
Soak used tea bags in Jeyes Fluid and bury about 20 - 30mm under the soil around your plants. Cats can't stand it and the tea bags deteriorate as compost!

Cats in your gardens Comments By: Pam on 2007-03-05
I think if they are allowed to roam your yard, the Animal shelter should be made to pick them up. I have found nothing other than, live cages, and take them to animal shelter.
Cats in Gardens Comments By: Anon on 2007-04-08
I have read putting rose bush cuttings in your flower beds will deter cats... I have done this and it seems to have worked for me. Now I need help with dogs digging up flower beds. Good
to Pam Comments By: Anon on 2007-08-06
Just because you apparently dislike cats, doesn't give you the right to feel that all outside cats need to be sent to a shelter...you wouldn't say that the neighborhood kids that play in everyone elses yard but theirs need to be sent to an adoption agency now would you?
I have found that my own urine works well...cats are territorial just like dogs.
cats in the garden Comments By: anon on 2007-08-21
I find cats are an excuse for a pet, if your neighbors dog was fouling in your garden you would not tolerate it, so why should it be acceptable for cats to do so. Why should I pay a mortgage and maintain my garden just to let somebody else's "Pet" use it as a toilet.
If you catch a cat fouling your lawn, you should be able to eradicate it like any other pest using any means possible.
cat problems Comments By: b.j. on 2007-10-22
i like cats. its just my dog does her business in our yard and cats should do theirs in their yard. if they are strays then they need to be picked up before they get hit by cars. if they were stray dogs the humane society would be they right away. it seems their are more stray cats than

Kids in the yard aren't crapping everywhere, neighbours cats are. Train them to crap in your yard if you like them so much
Why have a pet if you don't take care of them? Comments By: Anon on 2008-02-12
It's absolutely ridiculous that some of you would honestly think that it is okay to let your cats run through other people's yard and use it as a restroom. Besides the fact that cleaning up animal feces is disguisting, there are serious health ramifications, also. Suppose that a toddler picks up
your cat's crap and eats it or a pregnant woman gardening catch toxoplasmosis and loses her baby. How can you honestly sit here and say that your cat's freedom is worth this? If I find your cat in my yard, it will be dropped off at the SPCA 50 miles from my home so that I will not have to worry about it anymore. Use some common sense!
CAT CRAP Comments By: richard on 2008-03-01
Grate some cold tar soap and spread it over your flower beds,the cats wont do their business there again as they hate the smell of the soap. It worked for me as I WAS ALWAYS GETTING CATS CRAPPING IN MY GARDEN
Unwanted cats in my garden Comments By: Georgie on 2008-03-15
I mean no harm to cats, I just am disappointed that my new garden smells like a toilet and that they dig up the plants after they finish. How do I deter them back to their homes?
NAPPIES FOR CATS! Comments By: Sharon on 2008-03-22
I was told a bottle of water would stop cats coming in our garden, sadly it does not work!
My Great Grandad got so sick of the problem of cats messing in his garden that he caught the cats and put
mustard on their bum, and it worked! Although I think it is a bit extreme, I sort of know how he feels as the cats in our area all come and use our garden as a toilet. And not only that they mess outside our house. It is disgusting! And I am really sick of it. Why should I have to clear someone elses pets mess up. We have a little girl and having to check the garden for poo when we have no
animals is really not on!
My daughter has invented a pretend cat called snowy who does not poo in the garden but actually uses the toilet. So all cat lovers out their train your cat or put a nappy on it!

My neighbour has 5 cats... not only do they use my garden as there toilet.. but they are ripping to shreds my wooden arches and shed!! They have ruined everything including the roof. The comments that people have put about using the garden as a toilet has helped, But i need help on how they stop
using my garden as a scratch post! Thanx :)

People should be just as responsible with their pets as they are with their children. I would not want my kids destroying your yard anymore than I would appreciate your animals in my garden.

Get a cat to get rid of cats? YOU ARE INSANE Comments By: Woodsman on 2011-06-27
The above is the MOST absurd advice I've ever heard of. Get your own cat to get rid of stray cats? That's like throwing gasoline on the fire. IDIOTS.
Here's some further clues for you cat-brained
Trapping as a solution is a failed concept from Day-1.
Considering that there are now about 150 million feral-cats just in the USA alone, and 86 million pet-cats (60 million of which are still
allowed to kill all wildlife), this means that the cat-population is already oversaturated for a long time now. There's only 311 million people in the USA. 2 cats now exist for every 3 people, from infant to senior. All thanks to those who outlawed destroying them in a faster, more efficient, often more-humane, and more cost-effective manner by shooting them. While they also promoted their slow,
random-chance, inefficient, and failed trapping programs.
For example: I alone was able to completely rid my land and woods of all feral-cats by shooting them. Feral-cats had completely decimated the food-chain here, destroying not only all the prey that their cats disemboweled and tortured for
their play-toys, but all the predators that depended on those animals for food, starving all native predators to death as well. (Now THERE'S *real* animal cruelty for you, caused by *all* cat-lovers!) Shooting cats on your land is perfectly legal where I live, and is even a more humane method when done right than agonizingly slow and terrorizing trapping methods and animal-shelter methods. One
moment they are happily stalking some helpless animal to torture, the next they are dead and don't even know what happened. Making your land 100% cat-free is something that feral-cat advocates all put together haven't been able to solve nation-wide for 30-40 years. Here on my land, only 1 person in only 2 seasons was able to accomplished what they could not in all these decades. Why is that? It's
time for you all to grow a spine and do what needs to be done.
Nobody wants more than 86 million cats for pets. Now take into consideration their exponential yearly growth-rate of x^5.4. An average litter of 5 new cats every 5-6 months. 2 cats can become 42 in only a year's time. Increasing at the
rate of powers of 5.4 EVERY YEAR. No amount of people trapping them (if you could even get them all to enter traps), nor valuable resources (materials for traps, transport costs, vet costs, etc.), man-hours, nor money will ever catch up to their growth rate. You now have an ecological, human-health, animal-welfare, social, and financial disaster on your hands, ALL thanks to cat-lovers and TNR
proponents. The faster that cats can be destroyed the better it MIGHT be. Even when using guns and having all stray and feral cats shot on-sight we might still not be able to catch up to their exponential population-growth rate. Not even until every last land animal (including humans) is gone from this earth, due to cats destroying the whole food-chain, with nothing but cannibalistic cats left
walking the land. Just ask any TNR group how many cats they've trapped this year. They haven't even begun to scratch the surface of the problem that they are only exacerbating with their blatant lies.
Your best bet is to make cat-ownership AND care-taking of feral-cats a FELONY with hefty fines or
prison sentences for anyone failing to comply until this problem that they created is brought under control by any and all means possible. Shoot-on-sight is, without a doubt, the fastest, most economical (0.3 cent to 3 cents per cat depending on ammo prices), and most effective method available. This is also the only method that doesn't endanger nor harass any other animals with
non-discriminatory random-chance traps. Though avoid poisons if at all possible, that once entered into the food-chain, will go on to destroy more of the very wildlife that you are hoping to save from destruction by cats. Whatever you do though, please bury or incinerate the carcasses so all the deadly diseases that cats now carry won't go on to further infect the native wildlife, nor any other
humans that might come in contact with them.
Here is an interesting post from someone who believed in all the lies she was told about TNR practices, found at http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/science/2011/05/the-secret-lives-of-feral-cats/
"I have been battling a feral cat population explosion on my farmette for 7 years. TNR does not work, as the trapped and neutered cats do not keep new cats from moving in and adding kittens. I have trapped over 25 kittens, tamed them, and found homes for them, but every spring there are dozens more. I have spent countless dollars
neutering females and males, but they just keep coming! I have few wild birds now, fewer snakes, and there are bunny parts all over my property (cats must not particularly like the back feet). I wish there was a birth-control feed available, since many of these feral cats don’t come near the traps even when hungry. I wish every pet owner would neuter their cats so that these colonies weren’t
added to. These are not happy feral cats, they frequently have infected eyes, worms, and are skinny and mangey. I don’t know what the answer is, but even in the country, a feral cat doesn’t live a secure, comfortable life.

And YOU TOO can have a financially-stressed life ruled by cats and cat-lovers and have all your native wildlife destroyed JUST LIKE THIS if you also believe in TNR *LIES*.
this works for me Comments By: cats are useless on 2008-05-18
I toss a few in my garden and they don't go near it. Also, if you have the opportunity to see cats, a spray bottle with water aimed at
them works. This may take a couple of times.
Alot of people don't know that cats have to be leashed the same as dogs. I don't come over and crap in your garden/yard, so keep your damn cat out of mine
poo! Comments By: c. monkey on 2008-05-19
Cats are obviously very stupid. Next doors cats were constantly using our garden as a toilet. One day our greyhound caught one and killed it, has its brother learnt? No chance. Now I have to check its not there before I let the greyhound out because I cant face going and tell the owners again.
Hardly fair that we have to check out our own garden before using it.

but still tries to get into my garden while my dog is sitting there, please can someone help as i feel i want to kill this bloody cat!!
Bloody cats Comments By: Lizzie on 2008-06-26
I loathe cats - probably close to a phobia - and am totally sick of them prowling my garden. It amazes me that animals kept as domestic pets are allowed to roam onto other people's properties. They are pests which cause damage and potentially spread disease (toxicara) and should, in my opinion,
be treated in the same way as rats - with poison. Extreme I know, but my feelings about them are also extreme.
Gits Comments By: Yuri on 2008-06-27
I spent two days of backbreaking work clearing my front garden of weeds and grass tufts, putting membrane down, then bark chips. Only to find that it is now a giant toilet for two or more furry gits in the local. I have tried orange peel in the back garden section, and that seems to have work,
so will be heading along the shops today to buy the biggest bags of oranges you can get, chopping them up like a frenzied nutter, and scattering them like a woman possessed. used to like cats, but not after removing numerous presents. I'm a single mum with two kids and can do without this hassle. Down with the fluffy gits. Round up the owners and make them clean the gardens!!! Yep, like they
Tired of Neighbor's Cats Spraying Our Property and Scratching Our Vehicles Comments By: G. C. on 2008-07-04
I love animals, BUT I am really extremely tired of our neighbors attitude "that cats will be cats." I attempted to speak to the lady next door about her cats, but, somehow, she thinks her cats have the right to pee all over our property, chase off the birds from our
birdbath in the front yard, and scratch the **@@*@*!! out of our vehicles. My husband purchased a brand new $45,000 truck a couple of years ago and only had it about 3 weeks before her cats put scratches all down the side of it. Our dogs don't chase the cats for the reason that we keep the older dog in the house and the young dog in the back yard. (And, no, our house does not smell like pee. Our
older dog is well-trained and is allowed to go out frequently. We do not allow him to run loose like our "wonderful" neighbors with the cats do). We do not allow either one of our dogs to run loose (and they are well-trained. Of course, we do not have a "cat problem" in the back yard (or the house) as we have a dog there. Cat Lovers would be
the first to complain if we allowed our dogs to do what their cats do. I am at my wits end! The neighbors with the cats do not care about the destruction that their cats have caused to our property. They would not like it if our dogs destroyed their home. If they love their cats so much, then they need to keep them in their house since they "can't stop them from roaming because it
is the feline's nature."

Unwanted cats in your garden Comments By: Reena on 2008-07-21

garanteed way of ridding yourself of the problem Comments By: peter on 2008-08-10

To Pam Comments By: ANON on 2008-08-25
Cats do roam and this does not give you the right to pick them up and take them to a shelter...there are ways that you can be humane and scare them off e.g. water. Maybe someone should trap you and put you in a cage and cart you

Neighbor feeds stray cats Comments By: NJ homeowner on 2008-08-31
My neighbor feeds the stray cats in the neighborhood plus she has a few of her own. My front and back gardens are full of cat feces and urine. The smell is disgusting. We tried "critter ridder" and red pepper but to no avail. My next attempt will be moth balls. I
don't want to confront her as she is a very kind and giving person but her love of animals goes too far.

amazing Comments By: Clarissa on 2008-09-16
reading through the comments I am not surprised that the world is as it is. Total selfishness resulting in cruel solutions. Few people have said that they should try to negotiate with the owners and share a solution. Also cats bury their poo if there is poo on the surface there is something
wrong. To the lady who daren't open her window has she thought of clearing it up so she can open her window and talking to her neighbour?? Why are you all so intent on destroying the animals?? What sort of people are you?
Cats...wat are they for? Comments By: The Cats Ass Whisperer on 2008-09-16

lovely smells we smell from you're bloody cats!!!
Amazing Comments By: Julie on 2008-09-24
To the girl that left the comment about people being selfish, I don't think so. I am tortured with a cat who chooses to come into my house and spray everywhere. I don't have grass, my property is all flags. I chose to put a little tree in a pot by my front door, the cat craps in it all the time
and DOESN'T bury it. I have three young children so it is a health issue. If people can't control their cats, why should I have to put up with it. Its getting to the stage where I will harm the thing, as my patience is wearing thin. I am usually very tolerant but if you're having to clean up some other persons dirty animal crap on your property on a daily basis, it wears you down. What's more
important, my kids health or some stinking animal that's not controlled?
cat owner Comments By: dermot on 2008-09-24
I own a cat myself and love him dearly, but I'm not too fond of his and other cats 'presents' for me in the garden...the smell is realy bad, but i suppose it's something I just have to get used too !!
shoot the owner Comments By: ANON on 2008-09-24
Shoot the owner of the bloody cat,then they wont be able to feed it.Therefore it should starve to death and die of natural causes.So you wont get into trouble with the RSPCA or the cat liberation army.
Had it with cats too Comments By: SickOfCats on 2008-09-25
To Clarissa & 'Anon' (and any other cat owners who think the comments here are 'selfish' or 'cruel) - your attitude is like most cat owners - you just don't care what damage your animals are doing to other peoples' property, or how much work or trouble or expense YOUR animal is
causing someone else - but god forbid if they should dare to remove your precious kitty.
YOU are the ones who are being selfish by not caring at all about your neighbors & their right to enjoy their own property without YOUR pet destroying it constantly!
If you feel that your cat should be allowed to roam in my yard - fine. But then YOU take the RESPONSIBILITY for it, after all, it's YOUR cat, not mine! YOU come to my house several times a day, every day, and clean up any poop that your cat has left, YOU pay for the cleaners/deodorizers that I must
use to remove the urine stench on my deck and outside furniture, YOU pay the replacement cost of plants and property that your cat has destroyed. It's not my cat - why should *I* keep cleaning up after it day in & day out?
If YOU, as the cat's owner, won't take TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY for
what YOUR cat is doing to your neighbor's property - then you have no justification in saying that your neighbor shouldn't take the cat away so that it no longer causes trouble.
I should NOT have to clean up after SOMEONE ELSE'S pets every day!!! 'cats like to roam' - well, too bad - they shouldn't
be allowed to roam freely through other people's yards, destroying everything and making an awful stinky mess. If you want to let your cat be outside, then fence your yard and add 'cat-fencing' along the top so that it must stay in your own yard. If you cannot be a RESPONSIBLE pet owner, and take proper care of your animal (i.e. - ideally keep it indoors where it is safe & where it
will not bother other people), then you have no right to own an animal!
I dearly love animals - I'll even trap a mouse, rat, or snake or other 'pest' animal & release it in the wild away from people - I've even trapped a few small rattlesnakes & removed them from my yard,
rather than killing them. But I'm fed up & SICK of these durn cats - spraying them with water only scares them away for the moment - they end up coming right back, pepper, oranges, etc can't be spread over every inch of my property, and doesn't seem to have much effect on them anyway.
I WILL start trapping the cats & removing them from my property. I've talked to the owners to no avail - they are pretty much like Clarissa and 'anon' - they don't see that it's a real problem, so they won't do anything - their cat's "rights to roam" are apparently more important than anything else.
I'm fed up & no longer will tolerate my property being ruined by SOMEONE ELSE'S so-called 'pets'. If they can't take genuine responsibility for the nasty beasts, then I'll do whatever I have to do to protect my property and get things back to where I can use my own deck, yard and garden again. If that means carting the beasts off to
the shelter, or releasing them in the woods 20 miles away, so be it. But they will now be physically removed from my property as fast as I can catch them - this has gone on for several years now & I've had it.
I never thought I'd get to the point in my life where I actually hated any
kind of animal, but I am starting to develop a genuine hatred and loathing for cats (and particularly their irresponsible SELFISH owners!)
flea drops Comments By: cat hater on 2008-09-27
get some nice cooked meat, chop it up small enough for cats to eat. Mix in some dog flea drops (its deadly to cats) and sprinkle meat where you know the cats will find it. It does kill.....so
beware..you dont get caught.
MY CATS FOULS OTHER PEOPLE GARDENS Comments By: Anon on 2008-10-05
I own 2 cats, and they love the outdoors, they get very upset at staying in the whole day, and I know they roam other people's properties, I hate that too, and I do know that I would definitely get upset at other people's cats roaming my garden, what can I do to prevent them from doing this,
someone mentioned cat-fencing, where can I get that, and if I fenced my garden, would they not simply go over the fence?
Don't Use Poison! Comments By: John on 2008-10-07
Please DO NOT leave poisoned bait around because you could end up killing something else like a bird etc. Still looking for the best solution to keep the cats out though - they are NOT
Cat crap!!!! Comments By: Anon - UK on 2008-10-23
Cats crap stinks - they dont bury it and its usually waiting by my front door when i get home. i hate it with a passion and have got to the point where i would do just about anything to stop it. reading the comments across the web it seems that there isnt a simple solution - except killing the
cats. this is something that id rather not have to resort to but if the crap on the doorstep carries on then who knows.
the owners should be more responsible for their cats, i wouldnt let my pet dog crap in someone elses garden. and when walking a dog its an offence to leave a turd if your dog lays
one. you have to pick it up and dispose of it responsibly. it should be the same with cat owners. i dont want your cats crap!!!! if it carries on then all i can say is that their has been a few 'good' ideas at 'stopping' it from happening again on these comments.
I HATE CATS!!!!!! Comments By: Teresa on 2008-10-25
I used to like cats until I moved to our new house. It's like a bloody creche here. What is the purpose of a cat???? All they do is cry all bloody night long when we are trying to get some zzzzzzzz's. Then we have to face the stench of cat shit & piss in the morning. Their
irresponsible owners don't give a damn even. Best thing to do is pick the crap up when it's dark and throw it over the neighbours garden. We've bought a black metal cat from e bay which is a really good deterrent. It's screwed to the front wall of the house. Well worth £6.99. It's so much fun too as the cats just stare at it for ages and then runs away shitting itself. Ha Ha. We
still see the cats but they don't come near the house anymore. Cat owners keep your horrid animals in your own bloody properties. Why should we have to put up with your mess AAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH
Driven to tears by cats! Comments By: Kay on 2008-11-08
I have lived with my husband and three small children in our home for 3 yrs with no problems. My husband built me some lovely raised beds and the children 8,6 and 3 and I grow our own veggies and berries all year round. A lady recently moved in across the road and brought 2 cats with her.
Unfortunately it is my garden they like and they do their buisness here - inbetween our veg and salads. I am 8 months pregnant now and have worrryingly come into very close contact with cat mess many times weeding and harvesting. My children ahve been upset as their little crops have been unusable where cats have dug their buisness into their patchs. Tried Tea bags, water, hissing and chasing,
sound devices. I am so upset that someone could be so inconsiderate to my children and unborn baby. She seems to see if I chase the cats off so she must see if they come in! Is there a law against taking them off? Im happy to politely warn the lady of my intention and confess to its whereabounce once it has been taken but I am not happy to allow it to go on. I am going to first ask the lady to
remove its mess from my garden every time I find it or see it there though and see if she is willing. x
There should be laws on cats too! Comments By: A dog lover on 2008-11-15
I am so sick and tired of having to clean up my neighbors cats' crap. Sometimes I would spend hours scooping up their crap, hosing down the place and sprinkling the affected areas w/cat repellent powder from the pet store. I've already spent a lot of money on that plus my time. I've already
talked to my neighbor but to no avail. There should be responsibility placed on cat owners'too. I have a dog and I can't let my dog run next door and poo in other peoples' front yard. If we can start charging cat owners for all the trouble their stinky cats are causing, I bet we won't really have this crap of a problem. Cat owners are the most irresponsible people in this world. The victims
should start dumping cat crap in their owners' yards so they can start taking responsibility.
CAT MESS Comments By: MARY STONE on 2008-11-23
I AM NOT SELFISH, I DO NOT HATE CATS OR ANY OTHER ANIMALS, BUT WHY SHOULD I HAVE THE PROBLEM AND EXPENSE OF TRYING TO CLEAR UP CATS MESS. THEY DIG UP MY GARDEN,. LEAVE AN AWFUL SMELLY DEPOSIT AND TREAT MY GARDEN AS IF IT WAS THEIR OWN. THERE MUST BE A SIOLUTION IN THIS DAY AND AGE, BUT AFTER
READING EVERYONES COMMENTS ON THE PROBLEM THERE SEEMS NO SOLUTION.. WHAT I FIND UPSETTING IS THAT SOME CAT OWNERS SEEM TO THINK WE ARE UNREASONABLE FOR NOT LIKING THEIR CATS CRAPPING IN OUR GARDENS. IF I KNEW WHERE THE CATS LIVE THAT DO THIS IN MY GARDEN I WOULD BAG IT UP AND RETURN IT. I KNOW THIS WOULD NOT STOP THE PROBLEM BUT IT WOULD MAKE ME

what is tour problem? if all you have to worry about is a bit of cat shit in your garden then your long overdue a visit from disaster! GET A LIFE! muppets! suggesting such vile ways of dealing with such wonderful creatures as cats. go ahead with your plans but remember you reap what you sow in
life. i have 6 cats and i love them all deeply and take good care of them. If anyone hurt them in anyway as some of you have suggested i would make your lives a misery. the only way to stop cats going to the toilet in your garden is to have a cat yourself. you never know you may just love it. anyway enjoy picking up the pooh cat haters and by the way never any pooh in my garden. just verbal crap

Cats and the law Comments By: Neutron on 2008-12-21
Some states dependt inwhich country you live actual require cats to remain indoors, if they are caught outside you have the right to shoot it. If I where to kill someone or harm an animal I would be arrested and charged, so why can cats get away with murdering native wildlife? A responsible cat
owner makes a cat run in their yard and makes sure that the cat can not get hit by cars, eat toxic plants or destroy the property of others,if we vadalised property we get charged. I love cats as long as it's an indoor cat, otherwise I catch them and take them to the shelter. For nothing works with ignorant pet owners believe me. I've been there and done that, the polite talking aproach to the
heres the bill for the damaged property, even bags of poop handed to them. They dont care the only way is to catch and give to the shelter or to give it to a responsible pet owner.
Natural cat deterent, DOGS! Comments By: CatHater4Life on 2009-01-28
The best way to deter cats from invading your property is a few big, cat eating dogs. Get 2 or 3 dogs, install an invisible fence and the only cats you will ever see are the ones your dogs have cought. Its mother nature at its finest. There is always another animal that will take care of pests.
If you have a mouse/rat problem get a cat, if you have a cat problem get a dog!

Cats still think they live here Comments By: Dog Lover on 2009-01-11
We bought a house and the sellers happened to build a new house right next door. So...when they moved into new house, unfortunately cats still thought this was their domain. While renovating, I actually came down with my yellow lab in the a.m. to let her out and was hissed at by a cat which
scared me to death and my dog went crazy. Now it's finally nice where we live and want the windows open at night, but all I hear are the 3 cats fighting and screaming all night. Owner says, "I know, I'll never get another cat". Well, they only occasionally leave "presents" for us, but I now have fleas all over for the first time since having
dogs for 15 years. Looking for humane ways to deter cats and encourage them to move with their owners. Thanks for letting me vent!
Unwanted Cats Comments By: bugsy on 2009-01-14
I also have unwanted cats that crap right by my front door which also is coved so it really stinks it up, we have caught about 3 cats and taken them to shelters and other places, we've spread red pepper, doesnt work. We've called the shelters to get control over the out of control cat population
but they are overwhelmed with pets, ive talked to the neighbor and he has a "Its not my problem attitude",I have a five year old child who has been scratched by these nasty cats in our own yard, ive tried to go about this a nice way but they've left no other options so we recently tried powder glass so we'll see how they like that in their paws. Hope it works, ill let
you guys know :)
20yrs of cats invading my garden and house!!! Comments By: Chazah Dawn on 2009-02-12
My husband and I have had cats roaming our garden and house for 20yrs. They have sneaked into our kitchen at night and ripped bags open with sliced bread inside and eaten some of it - we have had to throw the bread away. We now have to make sure that no windows are open at night even in the heat
of summer. We have been frightened awake at anytime between 1:00am and 4:00am with cats fighting and making their eerie wailing outside our bedroom window hundreds of times. Every time it rains or we water our garden the smell of cat urine is overwhelming and spreads its sickening smell right thru the entire house. Its very embarrassing when we have visitors or guests staying and this happens, as
we have to apologise to them and explain, and we don’t even have cats. Most of these cats are not owned but are strays [there are hundreds of them here]. And occasionally, one person/neighbour who thinks they are being kind to these animals by feeding them and then the cat population explodes and we are invaded even more than ever before. I am semi-invalid and have been very ill, so I rest a lot
thru the day. Sometimes I cannot sleep at night thru aweful pain, so when I do get a good nights rest [which is often rare], its frightening and so frustrating and very annoying when there are cats outside our bedroom fighting at 3:00 in the morning, and my poor hubby still has to go to work! It also makes me feel more nausea’s to breathe in cat odour instead of clean fresh air in my own home. We
are now seriously talking about getting some cat traps from the SPCA [which do not harm the cats] and dropping them off at the SPCA and let them deal with them. I think after 20 YEARS, we have given any owners plenty of time to do something about it – but nothing is done [and I guess its quite difficult to train a cat to stay inside its own territory when its in its nature to roam], but
meanwhile, it has cost us a small fortune in remedies [that don’t work] and compromised my health even more.
Cat owners/lovers are very loud and pro-active about all this so-called cruelty – but thats because their cats usually don’t do these things in their own yards and houses but roam off and do
these things in other peoples property. So they complain the loudest because they don’t have to put up with it. I cannot abide seeing animals suffer – but this has now escalated far beyond a joke and something seriously has to be done!

soak them with kettle water and bleach Comments By: davie on 2009-02-24
i dont believe that cats should be allowed outside unless there on a leash, if i find a cat in my garden, i boil the kettle and pour it into my water gun, i also add bleach, i dont want to kill the cat, i just aim to spray the cat in the eyes and blind it, the first cat i sprayed was a huge
ginger cat, it let out such a huge screem, that i shaked, even though i done it from the bedroom window.
pet owners have a responsibility Comments By: davie on 2009-02-24
i have read alot of your comments and have to admit that i have only killed cats in my property,(less than 15 cats) but after listening to lazy cat owners i feel like trying to catch and trap all cats i see, but i wont do that because i dont want it to become an obsession, i realy wish that pet
owners could accept responsibility for the animals they have adopted, if you buy a cat you should look after it.
cat poo Comments By: ANON2 on 2009-02-24
we used to live in a neighborhood where this lady from 2 blocks down would walk her dog. i watched her "everyday" stop her dog in my yard and ONLY MY YARD, to let him poop. I got so fed up with the constant stepping in or having to clean up the poop. I couldn't even
walk to the mail box without stepping in HUGE piles. NOW i had a 130lb dog myself and i made sure that he didn't poop in other prople's yards. And if he just "couldn't make it" and he did i always came back with a bag and a shovel to clean my mess up.but this lady didn't. and i would even go and stand on my front porch and give her "evil"
looks. she knew that i didn't like it. i would even start walking towards her at which time she would quickly leave. SO WHEN I CLEANED UP HER DOG'S MESS I WOULD PUT IT IN A PLASTIC BAG AND RETURN IT TO HER. NOTE POSTED "YOU FORGOT SOMETHING". i ALSO ALLOWED MY 130LB DOG TO LEAVE HER very large GIFTS. SINCE MY DOG WAS TRAINED, HE COULD POOP ON COMMAND!!!! She finally
got the picture. If it was me, I would start returning the unwanted gifts. I have a cat and i keep him fed. now the neighbors' cats know where food is and are constantly eating my cat's food. If their owners would feed them i wouldn't have to chase them off all the time. it is madding!!! my cat is not even one yet. so he gets beat up a lot. OH! THE PELLET GUN WORKS GREAT. NEXT STEP RAT
Success at last! Comments By: BirdLover on 2009-02-25
After many failed attempts to get rid of next door's cats in our garden, I ended up using a cat scarer like the one at http://www.catscarer.co.uk - at first it wasn't effective, but eventually the cats got the message.
One of the more territorial ones still occasionally wanders in, but he's not around for long. Hopefully he'll stay away for good soon!
worse than the cats bloddy cat lovers aargh Comments By: trinity on 2009-03-13
I came onto this site to see if there was any harmless way of stopping my neighbours 2 cats using my front door as a litter tray!!! and i cannot believe the attitude of these cat lovers HUH i am enraged that they think its ok to allow there pets to roam and shXt everywhere !! i have 2 teenage
boys and i know if they spat in the street or threw litter i would be held responsible for there actions with a fine (at least) so these so called pet lovers should be treated the same !! yesterday i had to walk past 6 cat poos to get to my house door now i sincerly hope anyone out there thinks thats ok ??? i have tried to be nice to the neighbours but they dont seem to care !! there is no
legislation for cats so the wardens cant help me.... so yes i will now resort to badness nothing now would give me great pleasure than putting the flea drops or any other poision down !! enough is enough my children and i are more important to me than these filthy disgusting pests!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
upset mother Comments By: dave on 2009-03-12
To all the cat lovers. My mother loves her garden and phoned me up in tears because some ones bloody cat her dug up her garden, and new plants. Cat lovers should get thier cats to do do it in thier own garden. I have a dog and would never let in
crap in my neighbours garden so why let a cat?
Damn Cats! Comments By: Anon on 2009-03-24
Loved reading the suggestions on here. Plan to try a few, but if no joy, I will be trapping the sods! We have a big garden and fed up of the buggers crapping everywhere. We don't have a dog cos I dont want to be scooping poop so why should I do it for someone else's animal, so when it comes to
not being able to go out barefoot (in the Summer) in my own garden I get mad! Cannot believe the comments saying it is OKAY for cats to do this and to get a life. But I have kids and crap everywhere is not funny. I will be posting crap back to owners and see how funny they think it is when they have to pick it up. Watch this space, I will report
back once I find something that works 100%.
Cat Lovers Suck Comments By: Paul on 2009-04-03
I don't like Cat lovers, their animals creep into my garden crap in my veg bed, destroy the young plants and creep out again, I do not want a cat, I have a dog That I never let foul in my neighbours garden, when I take her for a walk I clear up after her every time. I have coverd all my raised
beds with garden netting, yet the cats still manage to get in and mess in them. So to all the cat fans out there who think it is pefectly exceptable to allow cats to mess in other peoples gardens and think we should put up with it, I will quite happily bag up the dog mess and post it you so you know what it's like for your hand to come out covered in

Cats are teritorial so if you want rid of them buy a cat. You will no longer have crap in your garden and your cat will crap in others so you can get your ownback. Mabye not a way to rid the problem fully but at least you wont have to deal with it.
Loved this site Comments By: Mad Alf on 2009-04-20
I went on here to read solutions on getting rid of cats, but had more pleasure in reading peoples comments. Im not an animal lover and normally dont mean any harm to animals but the cat situation at my house is taking the mick now. I have a small phobia of cats and feel shut in as i dont have my
doors open incase they wander into my home. I have 3 children and ensure that at all times they respect other people and their property so why are cats allowed to drive us mad. We are one of two houses that dont have cats out of a street of about 100 houses so what hope do i have in keeping them away. Is it illegal to catch the cats and take them to a shelter !!! Even if you dont find a solution
that works from this site, it makes great reading :>
hilarious Comments By: vinni on 2009-04-23
Oh thank god. I thought I was going mad with hatred for cats in my garden. I see I am not alone. I have a pair of twins which sit waiting for birds and worst of all my visiting hedgehog which has been coming for a year. They eat the food I put out for him and have made him a nervous wreck. I
hate cats. I have spent hundreds of pounds trying to deter them. They are the devils sperm in fur coats.
Permanent Solution Comments By: fed up on 2009-04-29
I have been dealing with a cat problem for about 3 months. Seems someone dropped their cat off in the woods behind my house. Now it was at my house all the time chasing my cat off to eat his food. I tried everything to get rid of it short of shooting the thing. Removing the food, chasing it off
with pots and pans banging even using a low powered pellet gun. Nothing worked. It wouldn't leave. And I can't afford to feed both so one has to go. So I went and bought a live trap, caught the cat and took him to a no kill facility. Problem solved! The cat is gone without having to kill it. Now I still have the neighbor cats who come around occasionally. If they become a problem I know where
they'll go....bye bye kittys.
Cat Owner Comments By: Geena on 2009-05-01
I have had several cats in my life...never do they mess in some-one elses garden. The solution is quite simple....get a litter tray and keep cat in for a few weeks. They soon get used to it and from then only need access, via a cat flap, during
periods of 'roaming'. I can say, in all honesty, that my cats come in from outside to use said litter try. I still however, have the same problem as others with neighbourhood cats and can understand their feelings. Some form of legislation is long overdue ref:laws on dog fouling.
And no, I am not a cat fanatic, I have also been a responsible dog owner, clearing up as I go.
I think cats should be allowed to go where they like! Comments By: charlie on 2009-05-01
Cats are wild it is in there NATURE to be like this. If you lived in say Africa and a cat came and had a crap on your garden would you go out there and run after it? No don't think so! Why carn't
cats go outside why should they have to live indoors they are not dogs they nothing like dogs. It is so impossible for a cat owner to keep a eye on where the cats go once they climb over fences. IT IS YOUR JOB TO PROTECT YOUR OWN GARDEN LIKE YOU WOULD YOUR HOUSE!! I can see your all not animal

Get This Comments By: frustrated on 2009-05-03
So, my boyfriend and I do NOT like cats. We are not animal haters, and don't want to harm them. BUT, we don't want them in our yard, on our cars, etc. Our dog is fenced in the back yard. My boyfriend's mother is a cat lover. She FEEDS the neighbors cats when she comes to OUR house!! He will say,
"MOM, don't feed that damn cat. I don't want it hanging around here." She thinks they are hungry...she thinks every animal she sees is hungry and it's owners aren't feeding it! And, she is very sensitive. It wouldn't take much to hurt her feelings and her stay away for months...! So, when she leaves, I sweep up the food that she carries in her car and leaves on our
deck and throw it away! He doesn't want mothballs all over the yard...we work very hard to have nice floewr beds, etc., and he doesn't want to see moth balls all over the place. (He owns the property). So, I don't know what to do. They drive our poor dog crazy. People should be able to own, or not own, any pet of their choosing. We choose not to own cats. We shouldn't have to deal with them
climbing all over our cars, crapping in the flowers, etc. Not much we can do about his mother feeding them, it's not worth hurting her feelings (although it's extremely inconsiderate of her to feed them if you ask me). But, if I could put something down all over the yard that would make them stay away, food or not, that would be
cats Comments By: charlie on 2009-05-05
If you feed the cats in your garden then normally a cat would NOT poop where they eat so maybe feed the cats where they poop it might help but problem is you may get other creatures coming to eat it lol. I would say don't hurt cats for pooping in
your garden just try different things like white vinegar/pepper water bottles/ horse poop/orange peels etc and it might keep them away. I am very hurt by some of the comments made here, hurting cats for pooping in your garden. I think it is disgusting and you should have the law on you for doing such a cruel behaver. Animals where her before humans so they have just a right to be here as much as
you. Maybe if you are nice to the cats they might not POOP in your garden maybe they are doing it on purgers!!
HELP Comments By: Marianne on 2009-05-06
I moved into a house 6 weeks ago and my next door neighbours have 5 cats. I have 2, 18 month golden retriever puppies & these cats are driving them crazy. These cats will not stop coming into the garden,use it as a giant toilet & dig up the plants. I've tried cat
repellant spray, spraying water, plants to deter them, running at them, letting the dogs chase them, etc. ~ everything. They come over the brick wall from the neighbours. When I let the dogs out in the morning it's a full on chase & because the cats are panicking a few times it's been like "Tom & Jerry" ~ just back & forth. I've
talked to my neighbours who don't seem that interested with comments like "well, it's nature & we never thought someone with dogs would move next door". They have a cat flap and the cats come & go at all hours. They've been outside staring through the glass at the dogs at midnight. I seem to be more worried about this then they are!!! I used
to have a cat ~ so am not a "cat hater" ~ but at this rate I can see how people start to detest cats. I control my dogs & don't let them use anyone elses garden as their toilet. Any suggestions on what do to would be great ~ I will try anything!
To the comment by Amazing Comments By: Marianne on 2009-05-06
I have had a cat & now have 2 puppies. I have tried to talk to the neighbour about her 5 cats and doing something to try to make sure her cats don't get hurt,as well as to stop them from using my garden as their personal toilet. Both her & her husband's attitude was,
"well it's nature if something happens". I am so worried that there is going to be a "blood bath" that I can't let the dogs out with out first checking the garden. So perhaps your comments that the owners being abused by the cats are selfish and should try to negotiate needs to be thought about ~ the cat owners just seem to shrug it all off
and won't take responsility or try to come up with any solutions. Why is it the responsibiity of everyone else & not the owners?
I may have the answer! Comments By: Kevin Lewis on 2009-05-08
As a vegetarian, animal rights supporting animal lover, and many time pet owner, I can only feel shame about the way my neighbours' 20 - yes, twenty!- cats make me feel! I could never harm another sentient creature, but I'm at the end of my tether. My little boy has not been able to play in our
back garden for years now, since I no longer have a dog on the property to scare them away. Why is it that cat owners so frequently feel the need to have so many animals? My guess is that cats are so rarely indoors, that increasing the number means that sometimes the owner is likely to have at least one pet around the house, thereby making them appear worthwhile to own! Mowing my lawn is like
negotiating a minefield! I'll leave it to your imagination to picture the mess when I've inadvertently gone over a "little present" with the lawnmower; it's not pretty! I can't advocate hurting these animals for the reasons I've given, but I fully understand how people can reach the conclusion that they need a "once and for all solution" to
the problem. So many cat owners seem oblivious to how unpleasant their "little angels" can be. My neighbours have seen me chasing away their cats back over the fence into their garden hundreds of times, but with no shame. I get on extremely well with my neighbours, and consider them to be my friends, but this problem goes on. I've tried: citrus peel, repellent sprays,
mint (they crapped directly onto it!), motion sensor water sprays and sonic repellents, thorn bushes, lion urine (it rained the next day, what a waste of ¡6.99!), in fact I've done everything short of crapping in the garden myself to sort this problem, but to no avail. I feel myself being drawn to the nuclear option that I've devised: The clockwork Lemon. If you've seen the film or read
the book of a similar name, I'm sure you'll recall the "aversion therapy" near the end. I intend to demonstrate to these cats just how anti-social their habits are by trapping them in a mesh cage, and p***ing on them for a day or so before releasing them- the unsubtle yellowing of the title of Burgess's masterpiece mirroring the fate of the individual cat- hopefully
with their tails firmly between their legs! I'll make sure they connect their ordeal to my garden and me, by "showering" them in their numerous haunts on this side of the fence. This is likely to be a male-centric salve; a good aim being crucial! However, an escalation from a No1, to a No2 reprimand brings the ladies right back in there! And yes, that is what I mean! I
know some people will find this cruel and unpleasant- I do too; but perhaps fighting fire with fire, so to speak, might be the push they require to have them explore pastures new! I'm putting this out for peer review in the hope that some brave/helpful/slightly deranged person might do the research to establish its efficacy for me, as although it strikes me as a potential solution worthy of
further examination, I'm not sure if I have the fortitude to carry it through! One more midnight trip to my dustbin leading to a squidgy, underfoot encounter though, and I'll be sorely tempted! I'm just grateful that I'm not a sandal wearer with long toes! And before anyone in the animal rights community (see, I didn't use brigade!) gets offended,
this is almost homeopathic in its ideals: cats are territorial, I'm just being more territorial; cats are smart animals, I'm that bit smarter; I'm offended by the bodily waste of the cat, the cat will be slightly more offended by mine; I'll be happy when I've let him out, he's likely to be even happier! I'm not some self-hating veggie, I just
think that bad owners give a bad name to animals of all types; the animal knows no better. But until I can come up with something more prosaic, I think I might take to having the occasional wee on a caged pet! Sometimes revenge is a dish best served at body temperature! I hope this is of some assistance to those suffering as I have been.
cat menace Comments By: Eve on 2009-05-12
I went on to this site genuinely needing advice to get rid of the cat cr-p in my garden. I don`t hve a cat and just the same as the others hve spent a lot of money trying to keep them out of my borders. However let me tell you, even though I understand, being in the same situation myself, tips
not working, ruined garden gloves, endless bought cat repellent products which don`t work, I promise you I have not laughed so much for a long time. This is hilarious...I thought I was angry with the cat problem, and still am, but my sense of humour takes away most of that. Anyone want to contact Chevy Chase or someone similar?
Cooking For Cats Comments By: Brian Dale on 2009-05-15
simply boil sugar and water until almost caramelised and allow to cool slightly. Then add a mixture of the hottest chill peppers available and liquidise. Pour over effected areas on non porous surfaces as well as fencing. Get ready with your
camcorder and watch as cats step into sticky mixture and then automatically lick it off. Send your footage to you've been framed and receive £250. Photocopy the cheque and post copies to all your friendly cat neighbours with a thank you letter. THIS REALLY DOES
Cats,cats,cats Comments By: Rina on 2009-05-15
To: Anon & Eve I live in a complex with 163 houses and in about 160 of the houses there are cats. The only problem is that they are not in the houses. They roam around in all the small gardens and poo.. whereever they want to.
I have one small French Poodle that stays inside but have access to the garden. I pick up his poo everyday. It is dry and most of the time with no smell at all. Lately I had to start picking up some of the crap of the 160 cats. The smell is terrible and as I love animals I never thought I would start getting thoughts of murder. I just wish I can
catch them redhanded. I would take a spade and hit them to a pulp. It is impossible to find the owners of these cats. I started HATING CATS. If I had a GENIE my one wish would be to get rid of all cats on earth. Rina

If my dog was to go onto a farmers land and worry his sheep then he has every right to shoot it. Why then can cats freely come into my garden and worry my racing pigeons (some of which are worth a damn side more than these scabby moggies). The only time I like to see these kitty's furry faces
are either through cross hairs or looking out of my dogs backside!!!

I hate cats Comments By: catpotato on 2009-05-31
I hate cats . I do I hate them.Pointless selfish sneaky creepy animals.You cant train them they are genuinely cruel to other animals. My neighbor has just got two rescue twats I mean cats and they have taken to crapping in my garden. Now my wife is alergic to them and so is my daughter so I do
not really think the attitude of a big grin and "oh are they pooing in your garden? well they dont do it in mine". Its as though they have a inbuilt part of their brain that makes them think that people who dont like cats are the weird ones.My next move is a bb gun and sonic alarm. I keep a potato next to the microwave which i have named cat potato. Its my 5th cat
potato. Happily the first 4 gave their lives by hurtling through the night sky at squatting snidey looking felines .Two direct hits I might add.
I have declared war on them. to be fair the neighbors have bought me some pepper and spray but why
should my garden smell of either cat crap or the fouls smelling stuff designed to keep them away. Its my garden i didnt ask for them to tresspass on my property they must be foiled

i love this site!! i live in nz and have recently moved house (and still having the same cat problems!) i am an animal lover but there is only a certain point of 'loving'you can extend yourself to before the hate starts kicking in! we have only lived here for a week and there is already three
parcels along the driveway, and i would hate to think how many in our front garden! i was told pepper, didnt work, dis-solve it (orange based natural stain remover), didnt work and finally i just read cayenne pepper on here before, i have been needing to get rid of the box (my partner tries to sneak it into meals) so i happily sprinkled it everywhere turning the garden orange, came back inside,
went out again to check and there was a damn ginger cat on the fence and a freshly dug over pile in the garden!!!! they Are too smart for their own good, i truly do hate cats now! they are evil and there is a grey one that sits on the neighbours garage watching me all day. This site has bought some humour to my horrible thoughts! i thought i was alone! i wouldnt go as far as killing them but does
anyone have a suggestion or remedy that doesnt involve having to spend money?!
try this Comments By: mandi on 2009-06-06
my husband was sick and tired of clearing up cat pooh in the garden as not all cats bury their poo. he spoke to the neighbour who wasn't interested so now he just launches it straight over the fence into his garden. no warning or anything. once they were all outside in the garden when he tossed
one over. when the neighbour confronted him my husband said - nowt to do with me mate you need to speak to your cat! my husband has been given lots of advice on how to rid the garden of cats permanently and i think it won't be long before he starts to put them into practice. I really don't care about you weird people that call yourself cat lovers. take a leaf out of a dog lovers book - buy a poop
a scoop and start clearing up like normal well mannered people do! But thats why you have cats isn't it cos you are lazy lazy people!!!!

To all ignorant cat owners Comments By: Citizen on 2009-06-13
I can't believe some comments on this page! One lady compared a cat to children, another tried to convince us if the only problem we have is cats count your blessings. An animal is a pet, sorry people, its not a person. You own your pet. If your car hits my car, you pay for the damage. I concede
that we do not have the right kill cats, I'd like too, but if I parked my car on your lawn you'd have it towed. Same with your cats, if its on my lawn, I'm going to get rid of it. the cat next door has crapped in the garden and my son ended up getting a serious eye infection. It has also scratched my cars hood so bad that if I want to ever sell it I'd have to repaint it. I want a new car but I
can't get one. I don't want to pay 30,000 for a car to be scratch by a cat. Wake up and keep your cats in doors!

People walking their dogs Comments By: sick of dog owners on 2009-06-20
What about the people that walk their dogs and let them crap in your yard, and then just continue walking leaving the crap behind! Stray dogs, stray cats are difficult to control, but a human way needs to be used if at all possible. But there is NO EXCUSE for these lazy dog owners to guide their
dogs to crap in somebody elses yard! Let 'em crap in their own yard!!!!!
TRY THIS!! Comments By: Aleksandra on 2009-06-24
I bought "Critter Ridder" from home depot or lowes and it really works.
Get rid of them! Comments By: bonbon on 2009-06-28
I absalutely hate the cats scaring the birds away in my garden. So every time i see them i go mad and throw a box of stones at them. Just now my son threw a box of pegs and the cat jumped away into the road. Shame it didn't get run over.
Any way to get rid of them without scaring birds away too?

CATS Comments By: ANON on 2009-07-06
I sincerely feel that cats should have licenses just as dogs do. If it touched the pocketbook of cat lovers they would have fewer of them. Also, more strict local laws governing situations that fall under nusiances. Our neighbor has 30 cats. I feel he has a real MENTAL problem. He will feed the
cats and go without eating himself. There is something wrong with that picture. Our local Humane Society will not help at all. The brothers and sisters are breeding. He has a nice bunch of idiot cats. Finally, cat licensing would be more revenue for the state.
Cats in my garden.... Comments By: anon on 2009-07-10
Cayenne Pepper, Moth balls, $40+ of "Critter Ridder", & Vinegar, have done nothing to get rid of this one cat that insists on using my fron garden as its personal toilet. I cannot sit outside all day & night waiting to hose this
stupid cat. Maybe I should turn the hose on the owner!!! If someone would be so kind....please run over the little @!&#. The only thing left is to trap "DAMIEN" the cat.....and let it out miles away. I am sick of cleaning up after someone else's animal. I am also amazed at the ignorance of some of the cat lovers on this site.

best choice Comments By: lockey on 2009-07-31
i have read all of these comments and most of them have made me laugh, no offence meant to any one who has been writing them, but yeah ill get to my point, the best answer to get rid of cats and keep them from your garden is to fill up clear plastic bottles or clear glass jars with water and
place them around your garden they may not be very attractive but i would choose them, to cat shit any day of the week.
This works! If you can stomach it (You'll be fine). Comments By: Kevin Lewis on 2009-07-31
I've tried my method above, and it seems to work! I was hoping someone would do the donkey work for me but alas, it fell to me! I'm telling you poor fellow sufferers out there, get a feral cat cage, bait it, and pee all over the aforementioned trapped moggy for a day or so before releasing it
back to its grateful owner. I guarantee that either its dishevelled state and unpleasant aroma will deter the said cat lover from ever contemplating allowing their beloved angel out of their sight, or the psychological trauma that accompanies such a dousing will render said cat's willingness to roam free as nothing to the horror that awaits it in the wrong garden! If any cat is foolish enough to
chance their luck again, I'll take my "correction" to the next level, and save a bowel movement for them to enjoy; as I've had to endure so many of theirs, it seems only fair! Trust me, it works! And it's oh so satisfying; I've never had such an enjoyable wee!
Kill the shitters Comments By: CAT-H8 on 2009-08-03
I HATE CATS. IF I COULD I WOULD SHOOT THEM. The cat lovers that don't see this as an issue must have extreemly disgusting personal hygiene themselves. Ive got kids that play in my garden. Every time i plant a new plant the next morning there is
cat shit under it or around it. God help the cats if I catch them. Im going to report my neigbour to the environmental health. Shes Got more than 9 cats. Theyve pisssed all over the outside communal (grassy) area. its dead. They shit in my front garden, they shit in my back gaden.. As its my property i have a right to defend it and my children from anything that causes harm and cat shit does. So
you cat lovers can whine all night like your cats but you better hope that they come home in the morning.
Fed up with CATS Comments By: Maikel Bell on 2009-08-03
I'm absolutely fed up with all your pet cats hanging around in my yard. I can see up to three of them at any one time in the yard with at least 10 different cats crusing through the property during the day. They shit all through my gardens (scuffing up all the wood chips and stones so they have
to be groomed constantly), shit on the lawns and NO THEY DON'T COVER IT UP! I get cat shit splattering everywhere when I do the lawns! They rip open my rubbish bags and scatter bones around the place, they get under my house, they wake me up all night with their fighting and mating right outside my bedroom window. They get on my car and scratch the paint. Most mornings I find one sitting on my
outdoor table when I open the curtains licking itself and making itself right at home. I don't care what you cat lovers say, your filthy cat has no right to be in my yard doing whatever it pleases. Control your animals or deal with the consequences cause I ain't putting up with it anymore.
Toxoplasmosis Comments By: Boggle on 2009-08-14
Don't be too hard on the poor cat lovers - they are probably brain-damaged by infection with the same parasite their darling moggies are spreading around the neighbourhood. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxoplasmosis
Paracetamol of course! Comments By: bonbon on 2009-08-14
After reading that Para tablets are harmful to that, that sounds like the key! It's the cheapest option as just 1 tablet can cause harm and hopefully discourage the monster from coming back. Maybe hide it in some pet food? If it's a big problem, put several bowls out with more tablets in them!
Now i can feed my feathered friends again.
Cat problems Comments By: Charles on 2009-08-18
well my neighbour has about 7cats and they keep having more and more kittens its driving me nuts,i cant walk in my garden without stepping in cat poo,i had a cat myself and i do love them but it was being attacked and mauled daily by my neighbours cats so i was forced to give him away,is there
any way to prevent them from entering my property without having to harm them?also the cats seem to be very wild in nature so capturing isnt so simple .
I have tried everything Comments By: ben on 2009-08-24
I have also tried everything possible to get rid of my neighbours cat poo in my garden. When I moved in the cats were using the scrubby lawn as a stopping off ground as they were going home. Little pests. I love animals too but with a baby on the way, I dont want it showing daddy what its found
in the border. The best thing I've found is a motion detecting water sprayer..works a treat until you forget its still on..or sprays next door neighbours fence..Still trying to find a humane solution, ..oh, I tried half filled plastic and glass bottles, the cat just crapped next to it and covered it over...time for the live bait trap I
Cats are vermins Comments By: Hannah on 2009-08-24
Yes, they absolutely are. My next door neighbor have about 12 of them and they keep multiplying. They are all over my roof, carport, car bonet, front & back garden, under my house, on top of my fence. Regardless how hard I try to keep my place clean, we always find cats feces and
all the rest everyday. So, I look for solution. RSPCA and local council refuse to do anything about it due to "we don't have the resources for that, you need to..blah blah blah". So we're back to square one. I have been looking up for advices in the last year or so. These are what I got so far, thought I share them because I know how painful it is to go through the cat
problems. We can do the following : 1. Place plastic water bottles around the garden (does not work with all cats) 2. Nailing 2-inch PVC piping along top end of the fence 3. Nail sheets of tinfoil
along the top end of the fence due to cats dislike seeing moving images, especially of a cat. 4. Sprinkle coffee grounds on garden beds, they are also good fertiliser. 5. Place 10 drops of a citrus-scented oil in 2 cups of water, then pouring it into a spray bottle. Spraying this mix where the cats
often go. 6. Plant rue (a colorful plants) in your garden, cats hate the scent of this plant. 7. Run a thin piece of wire or string along top of garden fence like a tightrope. It needs to be fastened sothat it sits about 6-inches above the top of your fence.
8. Barb wires does not look pretty, but keeps the cats from climbing up your fence to get to your garden 9. Buy some motion-controlled sprinklers (costs a bit unfortunately) for your garden. Cats hate to be wet. 10. Plants cats hate are Geraniums,
Marigolds and Petunias.
Hope one day we'll be able to enjoy our garden without having to pick up cat feces first.
Cat lovers, would you please think of these things first before having a cat.

Caustic Soda works a treat, but.... Comments By: C on 2009-08-25
I was in hysterics reading through this, but also found my own "cat shitting in my garden prevention technique" after burning myself with caustic soda while unblocking the sink. Sprinkle it where the cats been shitting
and when he walks on it something happens, because three days later my kids advised me that the neighbours were crying because their cat had 'gone to heaven!' Sorry neighbours, but hopefully your other one won't shit in my garden! I'm off now to enjoy some gardening! :)
bloody dirty cats Comments By: wendy webb on 2009-09-05
my neighbour has 4 cats and at least 2 poo on my front drive every day they do not cover it up they just do it and go, i`ve tried everything, i now let my dog out and tell her"cats" she races around making a lot of noise although she wouldn`t hurt them it deters them
for a while, why can`t the owners get a dirt box then their bloody cats wouldn`t poo on my drive!!!!
Comments By: Pops on 2009-09-08
Firstly 'chopsy', you are the brainless one love because cats DO rip up rubbish bags, i witness them doing it. I'm not surprised that you say this though as in my experience it's only dimwits that own cats. Thank you everyone for not only a damn good chuckle but some excellent tips. I shall be
choosing caustic soda. I'll soon find out which cats are using my flower tubs as a litter tray.

Cats do damage...its not the fox!! Comments By: myle on 2009-09-11
Some pet lover has taken time to make a comment about foxes being the cause of ripped open rubbish sacks, fouling other people's gardens and paths and being a general nuisance! What planet do they live on? Foxes resemble nothing like the furry felines who have fouled my yard for over 4 years.
Cats do all of the above and more...I have seen and smelt the evidence first hand and because of their ugly characteristics I hate all cats. They are the worst pets any abnormal person would ever want. If you own a cat, train it not to foul your neighbour's gardens, dig up flower beds and hang aroung their yard. Jeyes fluid, hot chilli pepper, black pepper, orange peel, water pistols, catapaults
and any other object that will rid the damn things from coming into my front and back garden and stop the damn 'crying' noises they use to disturb me and my child shall be used forever!Just when I get rid of two from coming our way a new neighbour moves in with 3 moggies! yelp!! Shame we don't live in China. Cats are nasty especially if you don't own one but have to continuous deal with poo left
around your home! Give me dog any day. At least they listen.

Exploding soil Comments By: David H on 2009-09-25
I like the idea of burying an inflated balloon and covering it with a thin layer of dry soil then wait for the next cats who wants to crap in my garden to scratch the soil.
I will try this but
need to set up a cctv camera first to give me hours of pleasure watching the reruns.
Owners can't control their cats Comments By: Keith on 2009-10-03
As has been said before cats are foul and disgusting. I suffer cats defecating on my garden and they do not cover their pooh (Clarissa take note). I should be able to distribute their mess back to their owners but I am certain I would be prosecuted. I will try some other remedies suggested as
most of the strays like Cat-u-pult do not work.Let's get rid of these pests (they are vermin in disguise) or their owners should pay compensation!!
Thank you all.. Comments By: Mo on 2009-10-03
Just chanced on this site searching for way to rid our garden of cats. Been here 6 weeks and have counted 12 different cats...have to clean all the c..p of the front lawn before I can mow it. Love all your comments, would try the gun, trap and rat poison if I dare..but more likely I'd get put in
prison before a murderer... you made me laugh so much tho, really cheered me up to know that a lot of you have also thought it would be nice to get rid of them..permanently..
I agree with pam Comments By: sarah on 2009-10-05
I have a cat problem also so if i can get hold of the horrible sly over grown rat i will take it for a drive to the furthest shelter where it will hopefully die painfully. I have two toddlers where i caught 1 of them playing with cat crap which i throw back at my neighbour my child is ok this
time so why should i keep my kids in when cats are let to roam

Cats are VANDALS Comments By: Penny on 2009-10-09
Cat owners will never respect other peoples gardens.The police recently told me that We have every right to stop these beasts or humans from tresspassing in our garden.Recently I was actually ordered by the cat owning benefit sponges who live off other peoples tax money to "pass
her her f.....g cat to her. I hate foul language, and said NO. I am allergic to those filthy worthless animals. I said It has NO right to be on my property and damage all our food, vegetables.This anti-social hooligan and rat eating cat lover actually told me that she was Glad our garden had been ruined by her cats and would ruin it even more.We cannot even get close to the edge of our garden
which those Benefit Bandits are using a tip to dump their rubbish, before they get their violent mental dog to bark and shake the fence uncontrollably. Some pins appeared on top of the fence and since then No RAT EATER problems, but then they chased after the rspca, and what right has the rspca to intereferE in other peoples fences? Rspca are not
collecting the filthy rat eaters turds all over my garden, Nor compensating us for the destruction of our food, vegetables and chicken by those rat eaters. The Police have told me that I have every right to protect my home and garden and we shall do so. Obviously cat keepers don't care for their filthy disgusting cats, that's why they are on someone elses property.We know what we have to
cats, cats, cats, and more bloody cats Comments By: JJ on 2009-10-10
I have never had a problem with cats before until now. I recently moved to a fairly new housing estate where everyone has pets except me, as were having good weather I decided to some gardening but I wasn't prepared for what I would discover, the whole of my garden was covered in cat litter. I
was fuming and didn't know what to do or where to start, I had used Jeyes in the pass to deterrent the foxes from ripping the rubbish so maybe this would work. Well it got rid of the smell but it not deterrent the cats, it seemed like I was cleaning up after them and I was attracting more and more of them. I tried black pepper, moth balls, citrus powder, bleach, bottles of water but nothing
seemed to be working my only alternative was to address the issue to the owners, all I got was alot of abuse and threats that cats are free to go where they please and I should learn to live with it especially as I lived on a housing estate. Well I wasn't going to leave it as that, this made me more determined theses cats were not going to beat me as my children need to play safe and where else
can they do that in their own back garden needless to mention the front as that was just as bad. What are we to do people as no one wants to be held accountable for the mess these cats are creating. Environmental health, animal warden, local council, owners, police etc., need I go on want to know or get involved. They are very quick to take action against dogs owners so why not cat owners. Cats
kill birds, frogs, mice and bring them home and interfere in fish ponds along with digging up or rummaging through flowerbeds. I cant stress enough cats are a big nuisance and am beginning to hate them with a passionate which is a great shame as I grew up in a family of 1 cat and 3 dogs and never did these problems occur and pets were well trained, dogs were trained to fowl in the road and cats
didn't like you to seem them mess and cover it up. Well cat owners be warned you wont be getting away with this lack of don't care attitude, I cant stop my cat from where it goes,this has gone on far too long people will be taking action to get the law changed. How much does it cost to buy a litter tray and train your cat to do its business there, instead in other peoples property as you clearly
have no intention of clearing up after your so loved cats but you dont want any harm to come to them. There is only so much people are prepare to put up with, some of us spend a fortune on are gardens, properties etc and shouldnt have to spend extra to deterrent your unwanted cats who could come to harm. It is only fair that children, people, birds should be safe in their gardens, properties and
be able to relax and enjoy the benefits of their labour without the frustrating of your annoy cats, stop and think about that. For you government offical its only a matter of time before cats start littering on the pavement.
Paracetamol (acetaminophen) Comments By: Pete on 2009-10-11
Paracetamol (acetaminophen) ie. Tylenol or Panadol is deadly to cats. Even a small amount (200mg) in a can of tuna or a meatball will cause all nine lives of kitty to expire promptly
Attention to ALL cat haters - please read Comments By: Cat Lover on 2009-10-18
I think the tip would work - the cat may think the black hoses are snakes!!At least it's not harmful. I AM A CAT LOVER!! Cats rule. It's quite simple to avoid the problem of cat mess on your territory -
If I caught anyone deliberately hurting my cat, I'd hurt them.
Note to cat haters - the following tips do not require any cruelty whatsoever. So if you still need to hurt a cat - get some
Ask yourselves: have the owners of these animals had them neutered? Do the cats have access to clean trays?
Responsible owners neuter their cat. This reduces the need for the cat
to deposit their dung in neighbouring territories. The cat no longer needs to mark his/her territory (probably your garden)with poo.
Cat lovers should provide clean trays. If they do the cat will want to eliminate in these clean areas.
Lion poo available from zoos will scare cats away. Put some in the garden or where they eliminate most.
Cat statues make unwelcome 'visitor' cats uncomfortable.
Use eucalyptus oil or strong smelling plants in your garden to stop this behaviour!
If you find an unwanted cat in your garden make some noise. When the cat looks in your direction, stare at it. Staring is very threatening behaviour to a cat.
If you people have such a big problem with other folks cats fouling your territory, have a chat with your neighbours rather than taking your frustration out on the animals or even better YOU could move away!!
I stress that I do understand how people worry about the health hazard of cat mess to small children. I ask my nephew to wash his hands after playing with my cat.
I suppose that hurting or killing cats solves the problem? I'm no intellectual but I
find the 'soloution' of hurting cats a little retarded. It's easier to kill a defenceless animal than to find an intelligent humane soloution. What a disgusting array of comments I find in the comments section. My cat was run over 12 years ago and it still hurts.
Anyone who makes cruel suggestions
about how to deal with cats should be sectioned under the mental health act. I sincerely hope people are joking when they talk about hurting or killing other peoples pets. I have no problem using spray guns filled with plain water but <<++Removed by TipKing++>> or <<++Removed by
God help you evil folk. People who are cruel to animals should take a good look at how evil they are.
What a wonderful world it would be... just
animals and animal lovers!! Get RID of all the scummy, worthless cruel people. Animal lovers rule, cruel people drool. My 3 year old cat never strays into neighbouring gardens and it's hard to get her to go outside anyway. Apart from my own cat, I am also foster mum to a stray who never messes in my garden - and she's feral.

darn thing thanks :D
irresponsible cat owners Comments By: Llanarth on 2009-10-23
The problem seems to be the cat owners. As many cat owners must be only too aware that their cats are leaving poo, presumably they are not leaving litter trays, which begs the question, should they have the cats in the first place?
Since it is the irresponsible cat owners who are inciting such hatred against cats, maybe cat lovers should turn their fury onto them, not the people with small children (such as me) who cannot let their children play in their own garden.
I for one
(loved) cats, but am heartily fed up with all neighbour's cats pooing in the garden. Even if I wanted to approach the neighbour, I would have no idea who an earth these cats belong too!
I work through all the suggestions, working from the mildest to the strongest, although I won't resort to
paracetamol or anything terminal, maybe cat lovers should turn their attention to the people who are neglecting to look after their cats properly!
Me again; the cat trapper! Comments By: Kevin Lewis on 2009-11-01
Hello again my siblings! I thought I'd return to this page to see if anyone had taken my previous advice, and found it as successful as I have. Sadly, nobody seems to have heeded my well intentioned words of wisdom. Get a cat trap people, it works a treat! And as I've said in my previous post,
it has the added value of immense satisfaction. Buy a trap, the largest you can afford, because cats seem reticent to enter an area in which they feel constricted. You can probably pick up a second-hand one for a small outlay. Bait it with pungent foods - tuna appears to work best and is also cheap, and place it on the lawn so that the cat can feel earth under its paws. Don't put it in a corner
as they like to feel they can escape at either end, then check it every day because I wouldn't advocate leaving them for too long; I am a vegetarian after all! Once trapped, move the caged "little darling" to a more secluded spot, before imbibing as much fluid as you dare, (I find cold lager goes through my system the quickest of all liquids). For those of you who have
missed my previous posts, perhaps you can guess what I suggest you do next! I'll give you a moment...That's right, you evacuate your bladder directly onto the meshed cage containing your bitter foe, making sure the cat is looking at you, preferably cowering in a corner, before you take aim. Sadly, ladies may have to use a vessel of some description; I suggest a wide rimmed bowl! It loses its
intimacy, but is a good second best! Believe me, I've led a full life, but I can think of only a few sights more satisfying than the horror on a cat's face as my urine streams toward it. And if you're willing to put in the hours, you can make it shudder each time you walk toward it, preparing yourself as it were for another dousing. And for the deluxe thrill, I suggest keeping the drenched victim
for just one night; it has the tuna to eat (although it may now taste a little off), and will have had plenty of fluids, so it should be ok for 24 hours. I promise you'll not need to set your alarm for the next day! You'll wake up as excited as a 5 year old at Xmas, in the knowledge that you've got one last present; the most pungent, foetid wee of all is that "overnight
brew". Run downstairs, and if your morning glory allows any accuracy, give it one last "hosing down" before releasing it to its loving home. The owners will wonder just what it's been rolling in all night, and why it doesn't want to go out again! Just looking at you will scare it witless. I have had a "multi-cat" problem for
years, so I had the pleasure of two more visitors to my "feline gimp-cage" before they must have started gossiping and put the word around! Guess what? I still see them teetering along the fence, but they never seem too keen to land this side, and the poo problem seems to have disappeared. I almost wish I'd caught another one because I was hoping to have a lively
curry, and see what nature produced the following morning, but after all this time of clearing up after them, I didn't particularly want to add to their mess! And a simple rinse with the hose afterwards leaves the cage in pristine working condition, and so I leave it in the garden just in case. Oh, and for the nostalgia! I think it's only fair that you should enjoy your neighbours cats too,
especially after all you've done for them, don't you? I hope this helps.

Both my neighbours either side of my house own cats. I discovered that one of the cats had p+ssed on my 4 year old son's bed. I had washed his bedding but had to throw away 5 pillows. Of course I can't accuse either of them due to not knowing which cat had done the deed. I actually have
had pet cats in the past until I found out that I was allergic. It’s bad enough that they are in the garden but NOW in my house too. What do you suggest i do?
Try Pest Stop Ultra Sonic Outdoor Pest Repeller. It cost almost £40 though :(
