It's just as possible that the cat knows they don't like it and is doing it to show who's boss.

Cats are like that. I know this, because there is an abjectly evil one who's sitting on the edge of my desk right now. She really wants me to go wash my car so she can take a stroll across it after she finds some oil and mud to walk through.

Have you considered replacing your current landscaping with some substance that cats don't like, water for example?

Piss on all the well wishers advice. A number two jump trap will get rid of the furry little friends. And here you thought I was heartless.

Clyde - Please explain the rationale you employ
to justify the right of a cat owner to turn his
cat out to crap in a neighbor's yard. There is
no justification for it except inconsiderate
laziness and lack of regard for others.

A cheap and inexpensive sure shot method use Moth Balls place them where you think the cat pisses they hate the smell if you can't find moth balls campher works equally well. If the cat or cats get use to the smell which I doubt but could happen a slingshot or pellet gun. If he still insist on pissing in your yard then a 12 gauge is a must guaranteed he won't return to pee the next time.

You have every right to be free of nuisance rodents and cats fit into this catagory people think because they love their cat everyone else does too. There should be laws against cats roaming around loose as it is no different then a dog who is loose because not everyone enjoys cats, I for one hate them and have use all the methods above except a 12 gauge which I have not needed to use because all the other methods have worked but I wouldn't think twice about using my shotgun if the first methods wouldn't work.

I have even gone as far as to put a sign you might love your cat but I don't and if he doesn't come home tomorrow means he was here more then 3 times so don't bother waiting for him. The sign alone is a deterent for people in my neighborhood not to let their cats out loose.

People have come up to me to thank me for my affirmative action I have taken as cats are no longer nuisance problem in our neighborhood hope it helps

How do you catch the moths and how to remove their
tiny little balls without killing them?

Interesting. I never looked at his call sign until you mentioned it. I at first glance thought it was a back slash /. Can't find that key on the board. But anyway; forward slash with the "V" for Vierd. Thus making the "V" a "W" Vierd: Virtual Interactive Experience Reality Deck. Now I am laughing so hard I can't even type this...because that is WildWierdWillie. Interactive Experience Reality Deck.....or maybe he should put Check?

I say get a MinPin from your local animal shelter. These dogs hate cats, are really small, and will rid you of any rodents as well.

I have heard people use lion poo from a local zoo to freak out their neighbour's cats. If you place dung strategically in the garden the cat initially is very intrigued by it but will not crap anywhere near it.
I guess the principle is that there's a bigger cat around who has decided to take the neighbour's cat's territory. And the little pussy acts like a pussy and doesn't dare come back.
Alternatively, rat poision in some cat food will be more terminal.

We have a mad cat woman living nearby who puts food out for the furry little bastards, they use her place as a kind of clubhouse and my garden was the club toilet. We tried lots of things such as pepper and landmines but nothing worked until we got ourselves a big tom cat with large testicles and a mean disposition, since then nothing craps in the garden and feeding him is pretty cheap as he usually eats at the clubhouse.
