I’m sure you have all been there; having an unwanted cat trespass in your garden only to leave you a ‘special gift’ behind. Nobody wants this, especially when it’s not your pet, so what can you do to deter cats from entering your garden?

Well, one of the best ways is to get a become a dog owner. With a dog, a cat wouldn’t dare enter your garden and they will actually pick up on the scent, leaving them to sit on the fence rather than wondering down  into your garden.

What if you don’t want a dog?

Do not worry there are plenty of other ways. One of the best methods is to plant potent-smelling plants and scatter citrus peels around the garden. Another good scent is ground coffee, and by scattering these strong scents around you will be giving cats a reason to go to your neighbours garden instead.
