Hi everyone!

ive just discovered some extra garden, ive dug it over and cleared all the rubble.

Ive just grassed it over (mon) lo and behold lots of cat mess, can anyone tell me a good way to deter them? i have used silent roar in the past but i think the cats have got used to it?!



Some folk say the elactronic devices that emit a sound that deters cats are good. I can't speak from personal knowledge. Hope you find something that works.

Yes, we were plagued with cats who pestered our pet tortoise, we bought an electronic device which someone recommended to us, we haven't seen a cat since. Try it.
Good luck.

string it over criss cross cats wont want to get tangled in it ,i had the same problem in my herb garden when i dug it over ,so i put in lots of empty plant pots tilted over where the loose soil was ,it stopped the cat and looks quite quirky i might leave them there ,good luck carol
