How to stop cats coming into the garden

We are a nation of pet lovers, however some decide that a family pet is not for them which is their right.

The thing is, if you don’t have a cat, why should you put up with your neighbour’s cat fouling in your garden.  It works the same way if you have a cat.

Unfortunately cats are known to destroy gardens by ripping up the felt on a shed roof, jumping and weakening fence panels, pooping all over the garden and destroying plants.  We had have to replace our roof numerous times over the years and the cost and time consumed is ridiculous.

If your neighbours cat is doing this to your garden, it is a real nuisance.  Let’s face it, cat faeces are not a good fertiliser either.  Cats tend to go back to the same spot and cleaning the area is not always possible.

We are not cat “haters”, but we are unfortunately at the mercy of our neighbours felines and the cost is racking up quite a bit!

If this sounds familiar, follow this guide.  Quite simply, it works.

Follow our guide:

  1. Hose down any animal faeces you find in your garden daily.
  2. If you have a fish pond, cover it to protect your fish.
  3. Keep hedging/bushes and trees trimmed and the grass cut regularly.
  4. Invest in a humane water based deterrent.

This is the only method that actually worked and has continued to work since we bought it.

How it works

The device connects to your garden hose and is battery powered.

It fires a short 5 second burst of water when its sensor is triggered.  After a short period of time, the animal stays away so you will not need to turn it on.

It protects your home, pets, flowers, trees and it waters your lawn in the Summer whilst you are at work too!

It is highly sensitive so if a family pet and/or family member wanders onto your lawn, they will get a soaking too!

In any event, if you want to put an end to picking up cat/fox poo when you don’t have a pet yourself, this is the one!  We cannot highly recommend it enough.
