    I was tidying up the garden yesterday, and found so many cat poos on the grass. It was discussing to clear. Cat poos are killing our grass, and it stinks. I am sure they are health hazard as well especially to kids.

    I have tried all sort of deterants from amazon, ebay and B&Q, and none of them worked. So, I kinda gave up.

    I am not against cats or cat owners at all, but it is getting a bit difficult now maintaining the garden and the lawn with the cat mess. It would help a lot if the cat owners keep the cats in their houses indoors, but they let them out, and they come over to our garden using the lawn as toilet.

    Do you have similar problems or experiences yourselves? How do you cope with it?

    Sorry no real solution (apart from a twelve bore shotgun:eek:) the only thing that may help is having a nice big bruiser of a cat that is trained to use a litter tray. Worth looking in a cat re-homing centre for a cat that doesn't get on with other cats. He / She will keep other cats out of their territory.
    Our old cat not only chased off cats but dogs too!

    Cats never **** on ours when it’s cut short. I’m not sure if it the cut grass smell or just the length that puts them off.

    Yes. A couple of these worked for us. They can cover quite a large area if placed correctly.

    Got something like this from amazon, installed on the lawn and cat pooed in front of it. Returned it for full refund.
    Got similar device from B&Q, installed again on the lawn and cats pooed all around it. Returned that for full refund too.

    My mate had that problem years ago and read that if you had the smell of a bigger cat in your garden it would keep others away. I’m not lying or joking but he went over the travelling circus that was on Wanstead flats and literally filled the back of his Mk1 Escort estate with lion s hit to spread on his garden. He didn’t even bag it or lay a tarpaulin down and it got between the seats and everywhere in the car. You could smell his back garden from outside the front of his terraced house. His wife went mad (ape s hit?) and it still didn’t keep the cats away!

    Spader- I can't see a cat pooing in front of a water jet, was it adjusted correctly?

    Hi Andy

    Sorry, I thought they were all the same device, gimmicks money making toys.

    Ones I had from amazon was ultra sonic device, and the one from B&Q was similar thing. It was set properly for sure,because when I enter the lawn, then the device was flickering with led lights.

    The water squirting device, I have not tried, thinking that would it work? Is it not another money and time waste? I had no faith in them.
