We currently have a stray cat who has set up shop in our back yard. I
actually enjoy his company as I stroll around the garden. He follows
me everywhere, examining the latest blooms with me, and has become a
bit of a chum. However, he's using my raised beds as his litterbox
and the stink is getting bad. What are effective deterrents to keep
him from using my garden beds as a bathroom? I don't want to shoo him
away entirely, but instead, inspire him to poop somewhere besides my
garden beds. Is sprinkling Cayanne Pepper in the beds effective?
What about a cocoa mulch? I'd rather not put down netting, as it
seems it'd be difficult for thicker-stemmed flowers (like dahlias) to
grow through it.

First thing I'd do is have him spayed or neutered. Then you can use
rose canes with thorns in the spot where he goes. Sometimes putting a
clean litter box out there works, but it has to be kept clean daily
