to think it's unreasonable for a neighbour's cats to use my garden as a toilet?

Your difficulty here is that cats haven't really mastered rational thought.

They do, however, understand water pistols. Get one, use it.

You do realise the cat owns the neighbour rather than the other way around?

Can't you provide a quiet corner and a daily paper for it to read, while it does its business?

oh great ,the weekly cat shit thread

I have talked to my cats about this as I think I might be your neighbour.

They laughed and told me to feck off.

it deserves to be done weekly. It's a real shit if it's your garden!

slightlymad72 Thu 20-Oct-11 16:15:32

Why don't you shit in theirs? Don't be surprised though if they start throwing it back over the fence grin

Our cat does this. Usually whilst we are in the garden chatting to the neighbours who own the garden of choice for Mr Puss. Highly embarrassing, but nothing we can do about it. YABU.

I did see a clip on TV where someone had toilet trained a cat. But it may have been a piss take

Unfortunately cats are very independent and follow their own rules!

why do some people read this thread and reply if its boring and done to death, don't understand

usualsuspect Thu 20-Oct-11 16:39:13

Because I'm bored grin

I wonder if there is a business for selling cat outhouses?

Actually cats DO use their own garden!!! I have 3 cats and have deliberately created a toilet area for them with soft earth, sand and a bit of privacy in a corner behind a large bush. Works like a dream. I have also given my neighbours large water pistols just in ace and they have only had to use them a few time. Cats aren't stupid...they got the very unsubtle hint!

topknob Thu 20-Oct-11 16:41:37

I have two cats and have advised my neighbours that if the cats bother them to use a water pistol ... they said it was ok, but I did reply it wouldn't be a problem !

what some regulars seem to forget is that it may have been done to death for you but a newbie has not seen all the others and wants up to date opinions, just move on to something that hasn't yet been done (if you can find anything) and leave them to it, you were all new once! smile

get your own cat and the problem will stop. Or befriend your neighbour's cat so he looks on your garden as his home.

This really does work.
