"Humane" Cat Deterrent
These are meant to be good.Posted 5 years agotommygunadamMember
Got one of the ultrasonic thangs. Seems to be work to be honest. Distinct reduction in he amount of cat shit in my back garden since I put it in. Need to mount it quite high though, say garage soffits or something. Tried the pepper dust and all that but they were useless.Posted 5 years ago
I have a big 35kg dog, he doesn’t seem to be a deterrent!
Tried that Roar stuff too, if anything it encouraged the little scroat to do it even more.
Never seem to catch the devil in the act, it’s a sneaky “private” business doer, so can’t get near it with water in hand.
May have a go with that infrared sprayer, anythings worth a shot.
Been out in the garden tonight and a new mound covering yet ankther pile of fresh stinking poo is present. Seriously getting towards the end of my tether!! Being a responsible pet owner myself, always picking up my dogs presents, even when out on the trails with him, this really does drive me insane.
Wonder what actual cat owners opinions are?Posted 5 years ago
Oh and I’m not sure where my initial writing describing my predicament went to, sorry folks, wasn’t meant to just be a blank box
Basically cat keeps using my vegetable patch as its own private bathroom. Not the most hygienic of circumstances hence my desperation for a solution!Posted 5 years ago
Infared box sorted out exactly the issue you describe in my front garden/veg patch. You might need to spend a few nights playing with the settings but 9 months on and it’s still doing the biz.
Either that or anti freeze according to a friend of mine. Apparently the cats like it but it doesn’ like them. Fortunately the technical box of tricks worked before I was pushed too far by our feline friends.

Mark your territory but obviously try not to aim at the vegetables. Having tried quite a few things this worked completely. Also kept the foxes out. Also very liberating but obviously bit embarrassing if your neighbours catch you. Not sure if its against allotment rules?Posted 5 years ago
Joe – I know. Shame my two youngster like playing in their garden and don’t know the difference between dirt and cat crap. I believe it’s rather dangerous to young shildren and pregnant mums to be but hey, our garden is only a big litter tray for other peoples domesticated pets at the end of the day.Posted 5 years agotrail_ratMember
next doors cats scared of our garden now ….. when i first moved in and was renovating id often find it creeping/lying about my house.
One day id left the garage open – then at the end of the day locked it all up before going to the ukraine for 3 weeks with work.
My mrs came up to the house 3 days later. got out the car and heard a cat going mental.
opened the garage door and the cat bolted out and across the garden and out.
Not a happy cat but its own stupidity caused it – very very rarely see it in the garden now , let alone in the house or the garage.Posted 5 years agozippykonaSubscriber
I can not believe that owning a cat in an urban environment is legal.Posted 5 years ago
I wouldn’t put dog poo in my neighbours gardens. Its socially irresponsible to own a cat. They are vermin and should be shot.
Buy a rabbit if you want a pet.
Honestly, my position has mellowed in the last few years.
Ps next doors cat pooed in my car.zippykonaSubscriber
Thank you timbur.Posted 5 years ago
No doubt we will have a cat person banging on about how wonderful cats are as they are so independent and that if the owner died they would bugger off and find someone else ha ha, like its a good thing.
Change the word cat for wife.

Zippy and timbur – I’m right with you, too, fellas. Can’t stand ’em. Same issue here – 4 raised beds trying to grow fresh veggies – only for them to attract what seems like all the local cats to “Their” own private latrine. I have given up growing stuff now as its too much of a risk…Posted 5 years ago
I have a dog and she hates ’em too but they are sneeky feckers & I (nor the dog) can’t seem to catch them in the “act.”
Similar issues with my bird table too – I have had to make that area as cat proof as possible…
SCUM. I hate them.
