    Get some 2 litre pop bottles and fill them with water. As we all know cats hate water and put them round the outside of your garden.

    Or you can buy cat plants and the cats hate them you can get them online but maybe b & q somewhere like that.

    Hope that helps hun xxxx

    He sounds like he needs shooting actually!!! Idiot!!! :cursing:

    The water bottles should work hun to be honest but google cat plants and you should find them, there not harmful to cats they just dont like the smell of them. xx

    Hi
    I used to have that problem! Until i bought a lemongrass plant
    cats don't like the smell of lemon! Since i planted some lemongrass plants not had a cat in the garden!
    Now the cats stay in their owners garden! And she does not like it!
    Hope this helps!

    Here are a couple of links that might help
    plants that deter cats | Buy cheap plants that deter cats and compare prices on plants that deter cats at Shopping.com UK | | Pet Supplies and Accessories | Home and Garden
    Cats digging in garden - Pests & Diseases Forum - GardenWeb
    hope the links help

    The water in pop bottles theory works very well! :)
