Do not let the cat see you or you have just created another problem for yourself. The cat will then associate you with the water and nasty experience and simply look for you before it goes about its business.2. Water Pistol or kids water pump action water gun.
You have to be as cunning as the cat and not get seen.
You are trying to get the cat to associate the garden or area with a bad water experience every time it enters that area.
Also let your neighbour know you are going to try this so they don't think you are being cruel to there beloved animal.
this also has to be used without the cat seeing it is you doing it or you are again wasting your time as the cat then knows it only has to avoid you to stop the horrible soaking it gets from you.Do Not be cruel with the water or you will be liable for prosecution.
You have to let the cat know the horrible water experience only happens when it goes to the area, this will be your garden.
There are so many of these devices and all offer different things.4. Repellent Pellet.
Cats do learn from what they experience and an ultrasonic device that only goes off if the cat goes near it is no use as the cat will just climb a different part of the fence etc. to get in, thus avoiding setting off the high pitched sound they omit.
You would be better going for one that has infrared as this will pick-up heat as opposed to movement. This will work better because the cat will normally always be caught even if they try to go round it.
You don't want to spend lots on these devices. 1 or 2 at most for your gardens.
If these still don't work then try other methods.
The pellets are soaked in real essence of lion dung, dried and sterilised.5. Herbs and certain garden flowers.
Cats are territorial, even the bravest should leave with they smell a lion.
They should be an environmentally-friendly product which contains no artifical chemicals.
Silent Roar Lion Manure - Cat Repellent.
Cat repellent scatter granules.
The best one is Lavender, although it may take a few weeks for the invading cat(s) to start to leave as the smell will eventually drive them away.There seems to be a total misunderstanding about cats covering there poo.
They will come back, creatures of habit, but this will get less and less as the smell will eventually become to much for them to ignore.
