along similar lines to the pull solution above, I had some extra sand from construction that I dumped in an out-of-the-way corner of the garden on a path (that won't drain into any of my beds). The neighbor cat who loves to crap in my garden has been very busy in this patch of sand instead of in the newly turned over beds.

I may have to do this soon as I have been "adopted" by a cat. After two months of constant harassment she has talked me into feeding her, I draw the line at having her use my whole garden as a litter box though.

Hi members i'm new here :)

Both our front and back garden are totally gravelled and it's become a proper cat sanctuary with stray cats and our gravel as become their litter tray at times lol

I tried raising tomatoes in large barrel pots, but the stray cats kept using them as litter boxes and tearing up the tomato plants. I think I'll try again using some of the ideas presented here. Thank you.
 
If we don't do the shopping, we won't have anything for dinner. And I've invited this tiny ad:
