Wondering what I might get for killing cats. Just dug over a small patch (about half a m2) and planted some spring bulbs--within a day its become the local cat depositary. mad mad
I presume fouling laws only apply to canines (and humans).
Put down some stuff that in hindsight might be harmful to pets but it didn't stop them, now put down some hot chilli powder as remember they don't like pepper (didn't have any).
Will ask the rspca how far I can go to deter the animals without risk of prosecution. !!

RSPCA website not helpful--their automated ask a question didn't understand "can I kill a neighbours cat". Did come across a case of a farmer who was prosecuted for shooting a wild bird (hawk) that had killed 2 of his racing pigeons--unlucky for him a neighbour was filming the hawk hoping to film it catching a pigeon instead he filmed the farmer shooting the hawk . £600 fine plus £986 costs. Seems a bit harsh when he was just trying to protect the life of his pigeons.
Will have to ask the RSPCA how they kill the unwanted dogs and cats in their "care"

LOL! and prosecute the owners for neglect.

Seriously though you could argue that putting pepper down and stuff like that could cause cats "harm" if only temporarily and the rspca are quick to make a buck or too with litigation.
Needs to be some advice and clarifications on their website.

Sharp sticks pushed into the soil but protuding a bit will deter them from that part of the garden.

Hawthorn or similar cuttings. cut small and spread over any area
including under bushes or entry area. Works for me.Eight cats next door and a few over the back.

Thanks for the ideas--will give the sticks ago. The hot chilli powder seemed to work overnight at least--no footprints or buried gifts for the gardener

Holly used to work for me when we had flower beds.
A walk around Bidston Hill gave us as much as we needed.

Find some ammonia and just put a small amount in one or two small bowl or glass jar, and place it in a position where they are able to sniff it.(so not too high) or bury it level with the ground. You won't ever see the cats again. One sniff of that and they do not return.
My dads old remedy. Reasonably kind and successful.

RSPCA answer. Asked them how far I could go in deterring them from messing in my garden and allotment without fear of being prosecuted for cruelty or harm (they have given me some ideas -- wink )

Quote:
Thank you for your enquiry.

Problems can arise when cats are attracted to neighbours' gardens. However it's important to remember that cats are free to roam as they're protected by law and it is an offence to harm or terrify a cat or to steal one. It is also an offence to put down snares, poison or an unlicensed deterrent.



It's important to make sure that any deterrent you use is not harmful and doesn't cause pain, suffering or distress. Some suggestions which could help you are:

prickly plants or ground cover plants in your flowerbeds
keeping flowerbeds watered as cats don't like wet earth


There are also a variety of approved chemical repellent products on the market but if you do decide to use one please make sure it's a licensed product and read the instructions carefully. Please note: When trying to deter cats, it's illegal to use creosote, anti-freeze, bleaching or cleaning agents, diesel oil, coal tar soap, peppermint oil, citrus oil or eucalyptus oil.



Ultrasonic deterrents have been developed to keep cats out of gardens, however there's no evidence to suggest they are effective.

Additionally, the RSPB has advice on their website here about deterring cats.

Thank you again for contacting us.

Kind regards
RSPCA Advice Team

Try the bucket of cold water treatment then. If water's good enough for us, then it's good enough for cats.
I actually love cats and do feel sorry for the ones that are subjected to hateful responses, but who wants cat faeces in your garden. How strange we get all the bumff about cats faeces causing blindness in children etc, but if children play in our garden, the cats win ,paws down.

If you were my neighbour and you harmed either of my cats, I personally would sh*t in your flowerbed and then dig up all your spring flowerbulbs !
