Cats in gardens

 There have been a number of complaints from neighbours on the community WhatsApp about cats in gardens. 

One neighbour in particular is incensed about the way they use her garden and her porch as a toilet. She has a young child and is rightly concerned about the possibility of infection. 

Another neighbour has a similar problem and has installed ultrasonic cat scarers along with chemicals that are supposed to repel cats. 

When our original neighbours had cats, I invested in ultrasonic devices to try and keep them out of our garden. I can tell you that they didn't work. On one occasion, one of their cats was sat quite happily next to the  scarer. I could see it was functioning because the light was on. 

Luckily, we don't have a problem anymore but I do sympathise with those who do. It is unpleasant and unhygienic.
