Honestly, it does work, as they view their own back garden as their own territory and once the initial "fighting for territory" has settled down, you should find that the waifs & strays keep away.


Yup, that was going to be my suggestion too. :D

If you have a Zoo or Safari Park near you then you can buy lion dung (seriously) and sprinkle this around the boundary of your garden, that will keep cats out ... a guy at my DH's work does this, :giggle:

We had to look for something for our garden and ended with one of those cat sonars. It's a pain because I can hear it every time it goes off as I walk up the garden path but once I'm inside I can't hear it anymore and it is very effective.

you can lay any twigs/sticks with bits sticking out on the soil. your veggies will grow round/through them and the cats wont like getting twigs up there bum :giggle: you need quite a few though. I used to use green plastic fencing that comes on a roll round the edge of the veg patch. use garden canes to hold it in place and so it can be easily removed when you want access.
