My garden is covered in cat poo, the lawn, and the woodchip under ds's swing. How can I get rid of it? My whole garden smells like a toilet, and I really want ds to be able to play outside this year!

get a gun (water) and oh what fun you can have.... it does actually work, whilst havin fun with the kids and losing weight running round the garden..... my mam says orang peel works and empty clear pop bottles filled with water... but not as much fun

ps. i hate cats

Thanks Laneydaye. How do I get rid of the yukky mess that is already there? Will I have to <<shudder>> ....touch it?

laneydaye Fri 18-Mar-05 14:22:37

yeah get the rubber gloves on love.... put your hand inside a bag and scoop it up then i usually put disinfectant down, not sure if this ruins the lawn though, mine seems fine.....
we suffer from this a lot and i hate it i throw little pebbles at the blighters.....

The only thing I can think of is to scoop it uo in a nappy bad if you have any colditzmum.

I have just done my garden and found some too.

I had the same problem last year. Luckily we have an electric pepper grinder and seem to do the trick!
Well... that and getting the dog!

You need some lion poo. If cats see it they'll think there's a much bigger cat than them around and it'll scare them off. Honestly! We looked into this last year as next door's cats are always pooing in our garden.

There's also a plant that cats don't like the smell of. We put them in places where the cats came into the garden - it wasn't totally effective but it definitely helped. I can't remember what it's called though but will ask dh later and post then.

I don't like cats either. I watched 3 blackbirds fledge last year, wouldn't if I had a nasty, stinky cat

MrsDoolittle Fri 18-Mar-05 15:02:05

Well if you can't find lion poo, try the peppper.... it does work!

Coffe grounds are meant to work - cheap solution if you drink lots of fresh coffee. Can also buy stuff in garden centre called 'cat stop' i think it's safe for kids and other pets. The make is 'growing sucsess' and smells very strongly of garlic. Here's a link to a similar thread, to give you some extra ideas pesky cats!

Colditzmum - the plant we put in was called Scardy Cat or Coleus caninus.

cat traps

Silent Roar is good. Pellets soaked in lions urine. Its completely sterile and doesn't show up on the ground. You can get it from some garden centres, or online.

hows it going colditzmum?

Twiglett Sat 19-Mar-05 13:00:55

tried lion poo and it didn't work

bought 20 sparkly windmills .. found next door's cat sitting on my table in the garden watching one of them going round with a look of bliss in its devilish face

have resorted to chasing them round the garden with a pan of water .. got them once so far

hate cats, hate cat poo, just swept up a load

laneydaye Sat 19-Mar-05 13:02:33
