Re: suggestions on keeping neighborly cats off lawn

Cats remember faces and voices.
Next time the cat(s) shows up, run at it and scream like you've had your heart punctured by an arrow.
Next time cat(s) appears, just get close enough to be seen.
They'll split.
And probably not come back.
Except for the mean ones...who will attack you and claw out your eyes (and your heart.)

This is a great option! I grew up on a farm and we always had a few cats around the barn. Not a common prob, but every now and then it would be, the cats would try to climb up under the hood of a vehicle that had been running, liked the warmth I guess. Of course, if they were still there when the vehicle started again, they were goners. Thankfully that never happened at our house, but a neighbour who it had happened to suggested spraying them with the garden hose on a strong setting, so they got wet, and it stung a bit too. We did that and the cat never when near the vehicle again. Only thing wrong with this is you have to sit around and wait for them to come to make it effective.
Alternately, I found something at the nursery called "get off my garden" and it is a smelly greenish gel that you spray on your perimiter. I got it because i had a dog tearing the garbage a few times. Sprayed it once on the bag itself, and the dog never bothered my driveway again. Now I still have this whole bottle of stuff...and no problem animals to make me bring it out again. I didn't find it too bad to my nose, but apparently to the animal, it is like marking territory, and kept them away. Might be worth a try? Jenny Good luck
