Tarmac or block paving will stop moggies from shitting in the maaaaaasive kitty litter tray. Or, you could try that stuff which will make all of the stones go into one solid mass, so moggies can't dig, but they'll still probably shit on it though as its the look that they'll like. Nice car though ;)

. . . or you could just convert your garden into a great big massive cat shit, so that when cat's shit on it no one will actually notice. It could be a bit unpleasant when the wind's in the wrong direction but that's life; swings and roundabouts. :shock:

Alternatively, you could electrify the area with a low voltage system, just enough to let fluffy know, LEAVE IT!! :)

. . . or you could erect a machine gun tower at each corner of the garden or lay mines within a hundred yard perimeter, or hire a squadron of F18 jet fighters and keep them on constant stand-by or look into the possibilities of using a nuclear powered laser beam mounted on a satellite constantly orbiting the earth or maybe you could just tolerate a bit of cat shit now and again.

Cover the whole area with pepper/chilli mix. That should sort it.

I heard that if you mark your territory, the animals are more likely to avoid it. Honest!

Oh, Tim, I'm not suggesting you stand in the front garden splashing the perimeter. You can have a tinkle indoors in a watering can and then sally forth, looking like a respectable gardener watering his borders. No-one would know. Except the BX forum community, of course.
